Olive's Hot Air Balloon Nursery

4.25.2012


 My sweet friend Laura just had her second, a precious baby girl named Olive. If you saw Laura's adorable camping themed birthday party for her son, then you probably could have guessed how amazing her nursery would be. 

We've been talking and emailing about her plan for this room since before Christmas, and it turned out to have all the color and little touches of whimsy that she had hoped. There's so much to love in this room, so prepare yourself.

The rug and curtains are from Urban Outfitters.  The dresser was a vintage find. Remember the fabric banner that I made for my 30th birthday brunch? Well, it has found its permanent home...
 
 I love how she found creative ways to incorporate the baby's name in the room.
 Also, she shopped flea markets to find vintage books and toys that worked with her color scheme.
   
 A friend gave her the gorgeous hot air balloon pic.
 How cute is that yellow scale to hold everyday necessities??
 And one last time, here is the prettiest little thing in the room...
 
Inspired yet? Everything about this room is so bright and soft and beautiful. I might be biased, but I think it's one of the best nurseries around.

  5. Jen- I love the rocking chair too. Colleen, I haven't seen hot air balloons used with such soft colors before. I think that's why I love it so much.

    PS-I think they're going to call Olive "Liv" for short. How cute is that??
