In the heart of San Francisco, this pink and orange nursery is a haven for baby girl, Colette. Her mama, Jennifer Morrison of Anchor & Adorn, not only designed the nursery on our baby blog today but also made most of the room’s decor. She dreamed up the perfect girly space for a sweet baby to enjoy – here’s how:
When I was creating my daughters room I wanted to stay true to our contemporary style and have it reflect the same aesthetic as the rest of our home, while still remaining sweet and kid friendly. We live in San Francisco, which means small rooms, so I wanted to make sure her room was vibrant, modern and fun even in the tight quarters. We chose bright pink walls with a quirky off-beat herringbone accent wall as the main focal point. I wanted to make sure that the room was sweet for a baby, but could transition into a toddler room.
The room was such a labor of love with a touch of handmade elements. For our wedding, I created a floral paper wall and re-purposed the flowers for the mobile above the crib. The crib blankets and many of the pillows I sewed while pregnant, it was easier for me to make everything than waddle around shopping for the perfect accessories. Above her changing table I found an old mirror in a discount bin that, with a couple coats of paint, was brought back to life and it works great in the space. To tie everything together, I added some items that were ours when we were children–a well loved little bunny on her shelf that was my husbands, a poem that was in my nursery and framed by my father 32 years ago, as well as books we enjoyed growing up.
