Name: Harper
Location: Houston, Texas

When we found out we were expecting, I was so excited to get started on the nursery. Even before I knew if we were having a boy or girl, I knew I wanted a very calm, neutral and serene space. I wanted lots of pops of white to make the room feel crisp and airy.

When we found out we were having a sweet girl, I added mint green accents to the nursery and played with different textures in the cream and white items. I also used custom gold foil prints of bunnies to add a little whimsy to the space. One of my favorite pieces is the chandelier, which adds such a pretty, feminine touch to the room. Another favorite is the bookshelves—- they are functional and add some color to the otherwise neutral space.
