House Tour: Capri’s Soft Pastel Nursery

So I know I’ve been postponing the kitchen reveal for weeks, and I promise it’s coming! But I just can’t wait another moment to show you this beautiful pastel nursery I’ve been sitting on.

A month ago I had the pleasure of meeting my best friend’s new baby girl, little Miss Capri Ava. Capri is honestly as sweet as can be, as is her beautiful new nursery. Sarah (a.k.a. my very best friend) did such a thoughtful job on this nursery from top to bottom. From the soft pastel walls and curtains to the unique personalized touches, this room is a calming oasis that whispers baby girl without being over the top on pink and fluff.

If you’re expecting a girl let this understated soft pastel nursery be your inspiration! Blush tones, reclaimed furniture, feminine accents – what more could a little girl want?
Scroll through for details from Sarah and a source list at the end!

Sarah: I always envisioned my baby’s nursery to look like an extension of the rest of our house. When we found out we were having a girl, I spent most of my days planning the nursery. I wanted it to be whimsical and beautiful; calming and soft, and above all else I didn’t want it to look “too babyish”. It was important to me that we designed a space she could easily grow into, no change in paint color or decor needed a few years down the road. This soft pastel color palette including variations of blush, mint and gray spoke to me a perfect balance of femininity and simplicity.

Sarah: The “C” above the crib is my favorite piece in the nursery. I worked with Art Therapy Studio, an Etsy shop, to customize my vision and it’s now my favorite thing in the nursery. My second favorite item is the rug. I took a chance by ordering it online, but it arrived looking even more beautiful that it appeared (plus prior to ordering I read about 300 customer reviews — no one wants to pay for shipping when returning an 8’x11′ area rug!). 

Sarah: Aside from the design aesthetic of the room, my priority was practicality. As the months and years go by, we will need to rearrange, add/take away items that make sense for her particular phase of life. But right now, at 2 months old, her nursery is so livable. The side table next to the glider is a must for late night feedings–you need a place for bottles, burp cloths, your phone, water, strong coffee, etc. The dresser doubles as a changing table which saves on space (& allows her to use the dresser later in life), and the storage crate on top keeps diapers, creams, vitamin drops etc. a little more organized. 

I hope you all enjoyed this visit to sweet little pastel nursery-land as much as I did! To view Sarah’s original house tour visit this post. Below is a list of sources for many of the items found in this beautiful nursery.
