Featured Nursery - Courtney's Colorful Creation

8.23.2010
I'm so excited to bring you our first featured nursery from Courtney of Jahjong!  

While browsing through the profiles of some of my readers the other day, I stumbled across this unique and colorful space that Courtney has been working on for her baby girl. With bold, vibrant color choices, repurposed furniture, and handmade accents it was right up my alley.



Courtney's color inspiration came from her grandmother's quilt block and an Amy Butler quilt:





I give the same advice - always seek inspiration when designing a space. It will keep your room cohesive and your budget focused.


And speaking of a budget, Courtney stuck to hers by repurposing furniture and DIYing quite a few accents. She scored this chair for free and the ottoman for just twenty-five bucks.  Some new upholstery and voila! A masterpiece :


And the stunning dresser was a flea market find. It's amazing what you can do with a little paint and elbow grease:


 But Courtney didn't stop there - the inside got a little TLC as well:


And do you see the adorable owl mobile above the changing pad? Another money-saving DIY:


The entire nursery is chock full of sewing projects and thrifty finds. (Do I see a familiar crib?)



To see more of Courtney's uniquely gorgeous space, check out her blog here. Thank you so, Courtney, much for sharing your space with my readers!

  1. I love that she wasn't afraid of color!! Such a bright and fun nursery! I'm getting ready to start working on my son's room (he's 1 year old)...and I love to see fearless nurseries. ; )

  2. Those drawers are beautiful - my mum did a similar thing with scented paper in my dresser drawers when I was a wee thing. Loving all the Amy Butler - her designs are so rich and cheerful.

  3. Such a great nursery. Looks great...I would be in trouble if I had a daughter- that's for sure. Thanks for sharing.

  4. This room is beautiful and unique. I do worry when I see full length curtains and table lamps in a nursery though. Once your child starts moving, they can be a hazard. Of course, child proofing (at least in our house) seems to be a continuous process as our daughter gets more and more mobile, and I'm sure that many other parents find it that way too!
