Mood Board Monday - Nursery Edition

Making collages and project boards is one of my most favorite things to do, so today I decided to participate in Sarah's Moonboard party over at Pweter+Sage. I chose the French Toddler bed and I am creating a romantic and gracious room setting for a little girl from my favorite store Layla Grace. My room has tall ceilings and chocolate brown walls, and feels soft and sweet...

I chose to set to tone with a Paul Thomas hand tufted wool rug, which will "anchor" the room with its beautiful  pattern and color palette.

In the middle of the room I hung a Maura Daniel pink crystal-like chandelier

I thought this French three door pink armoire will give extra storage and will make the room look so delicious!
I added a romantic white chest of drawers,

and I accessorized it with this beautiful roses lamp,
a personalized photo album with brown ribbon and initials by Jan Sevajian

and a pink and brown daisy photo frame.
Then I hung a Victorian reproduction pink mirror over the chest.
I set the crib with soft pink and brown linens by Anette Tatum. This 3 piece crib set added pattern and texture with its polka dot bumper, the jersey crib sheet and the gathered crib skirt in stripe.

I added a soft chenille blanket with contrasting colors

 I bought some fabric by the yard and made a couple of curtain panels with pink ribbons, and an extra pair of sheets.
I completed the bed setting with a hand knit Peruvian doll
and a paper doll patterned pink and brown pillow.
What else? For all the toys, a fun and functional pink paper doll pattern storage bin

 and a totally un-expected Zebra print kids accent chair in dark brown and white that "jazzes" the room up!

I had so much fun! 
Thank you Sarah!
Pink kisses and chocolate hugs,
