Hey y’all! I’m Julia and I’m so thrilled to be contributing here on Bellini Buzz today. As a mom of two babies, 21 months & 4 months, I’ve spent lots of time daydreaming about nurseries over the past few years. My design aesthetic changes rapidly along with my mood so I’ve found it’s easiest (and cheapest) for me to stick with an all white base. This works especially well in a nursery where you’ve got a white crib and walls offering a clean and calming palate. As baby gets older the color gets bolder. Currently I’m obsessed with pairing a lots of white with pops of color. Brights in decor can pull a room together quickly just like in fashion. It’s like adding a bold neon necklace or super colorful scarf to your favorite jeans and white tee. And I love that with a few yards of fabric or a new rug, you can totally transform the look of the room!
Today, I’m sharing a quick little plan I have for my own sweet girl’s room. She’s just shy of 22 months old and I plan to keep that crazy girl in a crib just as long as she’ll let me. Is kindergarten too old? I’m ready to trade in her soft baby colors for some new fun items that will transition well with her big girl room. A friend of mine originally found this rug at Rugs USA and those fabrics are from spoonflower.com. Fab style at some budget prices? Thank you ma’am. I’m picturing throw pillows made with that fabric to cushion my butt while playing blocks on her floor today and happily residing on her bed when she’s older. I like integrating non-traditional baby items and fabrics to help my Baby Girl develop her sense of style from an early age!
