Featured Nursery: Amy's Fabric-Fabulous Space

8.30.2010
I actually first discovered Amy's amazing nursery on the Bump's Real Nursery Contest. It was my absolute favorite of the group (I may even like it as much as my own...if not more!). Amy managed to pull off a very modern and colorful space while still keeping it very warm and cozy.


The space is exploding with DIY projects, including this gorgeous rain and clouds mobile:


You can't help but immediately notice all of the amazing fabrics in the space. Believe it or not, Amy designed most of these herself on Spoonflower. That's taking DIY to a whole new level! I think that she may have missed her calling, as her fabrics are absolutely gorgeous:


And Amy not only designs her own fabric, she sews as well! (Something that greatly impresses this absolute sewing novice). This ottoman is one of her own creations, as well as the frog on top:


One of Amy's favorite elements in the space is her moose rocker from IKEA. Her hubby is from Canada, so it brings their baby's heritage in in a really fun way:


I think part of what makes Amy's nursery special is that it is so personalized. Her dogs were the inspiration for this gorgeous silhouette pillow:


And as if there wasn't enough fabulous fabric in the room, this hoop collage really takes the cake:



Thank you so much, Amy, for allowing me to share your space on with two cats. I'm a little jealous - I may have to steal a few of your tricks for my next nursery design! To see more of Amy's space, check out her Flickr photostream here and her blog here.

P.S. If you enjoyed this post I'd really appreciate it if you'd vote for us on Top Baby Blogs by clicking here. It only takes a second and I'd love to reach more moms and mothers-to-be (okay dads - you too!). Thanks so much!

  3. This is so beautiful I almost want to get pregnant again just so I can copy this room...almost. Then I remember that I was sick my.entire.pregnancy.
    Yeah, I think I'll keep this for future inspiration, although that hoop collage is beging to be replicated in my own room.
    Thanks for sharing.

  4. Thanks, everyone! Kevyn, to make the pillows, I uploaded the dog silhouettes to spoonflower and had them printed on a fat quarter of fabric (each). I used a coordinating chevron fabric for the reverse and trimmed the edges with yellow piping.
