Even More Nursery Ideas

I had a lot of trouble committing to a design for the nursery update, but I notice I'm being drawn to warm pinks, peaches, corals, and oranges. (Surprise surprise!) I honestly kind of resisted it for a while because I feel like there's a lot of negative thoughts on doing a 'traditional pink' nursery for a girl, but in the end you've got to do what you love, and really, who cares what everyone else thinks! I'm really excited about these new tassel curtains from Serena & Lily. I was planning to DIY some basic white curtains with pom pom trim, but I came across these and was instantly smitten. Looks like I might not have to muddle through a sewing project after all! xo, Lauren

  1. When I had my first daughter, I used yellow and reds in her room because of the bad rap pink got. I totally regretted it. When I found out I was pregnant with my second daughter I went with pink and a pale green. I felt so satisfied.

    Love your roundups so much!

    1. Thanks Monique! Only a few times you get a chance to do a girly pink room, right? :)

  2. I've been thinking about warm pinks, corals and oranges for my twin girls on the way, and I've had a hard time finding pictures of nurseries in that color scheme. Have you found any?

  3. If I ever have a girl it's gonna be a straight up explosion of pink in the room and I will love every second. Do what you love! I have that same gnome in Reed's room and I love it! That new West Elm rug is begging for a girl's room. So happy you're going to use if!

  4. Lauren,
    I just found your blog when I linked from your January Cure post on AT. I wanted more information about the curtains in Violet's nursery. Was kind of sad when I realized THAT blog post was two years old! Since you seem to be going a completely different direction for Baby #2, and I don't see those Urban Outfitters curtains in your idea boards, do you still have them and might you be interested in selling them?
    My boys are quite a bit older, but I'm always amazed where I find inspiration!
    Thanks.
    I also noticed that you've mentioned allergies a couple of times, but I can't find any posts. Just curious. My kids are like poster children for food allergies!

    1. Hi Cathy! I'm planning to hang on to the curtains as I am kind of still in love with them and we may have another bambino eventually, but the pattern is by Alexander Girard, so maybe you could find something on eBay? Sorry I can't be more helpful with that! My daughter has a condition called FPIES, which I simplify into 'allergies' in most of my posts referring to it. She basically is allergic to the protein in dairy (and formerly soy) products, but it doesn't show up on allergy tests. What are your kids allergic to? If you're looking for dairy-free ideas I have a ton!

    2. Thanks for the info about the Alexander Girard pattern. I'll definitely look for it.
      One of my kids is allergic to dairy, casein (not sure why it's classified separately), tree nuts, wheat, rye, barley (everything with gluten, but they say it's a different protein), and oats. The other one is allergic to tree nuts, peanuts/legumes/beans, sesame, coconut, melons, and corn. I probably forgot something! In a sense, it sounds like everything, but I concentrate on what they CAN eat, which is still quite a lot. Fortunately, I've been preparing meals this way for almost 10 years, now so I've got it pretty well covered. My friends keep saying I should write a cookbook, but I haven't gotten around to really considering it. If you need any baking ideas, I found a fabulous cookbook called The Allergen-Free Baker's Handbook by Cybele Pascal.
      I really like your blog. Love your decorating style!
