I must say that designing Landry’s nursery was by far my favorite part of nesting. I loved every detail. I remember buying each piece and placing them just so…waiting in excitement & wondering all along who this little girl would be.
Needless to say I changed my mind on the theme no less than 1,000 times. I went from one end of the spectrum to the other. For a long time I was set on Navy+Pink. Here was the mood board that I created to inspire that idea…
In the end, the only thing that I was set on was the classic white Jenny Lind crib. I started to feel like the navy and pink might be to strong for such a soft, classic crib. I also kept gravitating back to the Laudree bag that I brought home from our anniversary trip to Paris. I was enamoured with Laudree. The history. The smell. The pretty pastels. The sweets. The crystal chandeliers. The glamorous Parisian ladies out to lunch sipping champagne. The iconic mint green and gold colors. That was it…I wanted the nursery to feel just like the memory of Paris. I was finally set on a theme and would design the nursery around my worn Laudree bag.
Here was the original mood board:
The wallpaper was what I used to tie everything in and am absolutely positively in love with it. I became even more in love with it when I found out the actual watercolor was done by New Orleans Artist/Designer Shelly Hesse. Overall, the project was budget friendly and easy to put together. Here’s the finished product:
The patterned rug ended up being too much with the wallpaper, so I opted for white. The original table for next to the glider (in mood board) was not substantial enough, so I pulled a vintage nightstand that I already had out of storage and it worked perfect. I also thought that white drapes with a simple pom trim would do the trick against the bust wallpeper, but they actually dumbed it down too much. I love how the dramatic stripes in silk taffeta accent the wallpapers bold pattern. What do you think of the finished product?
Here are the details and how I didn’t break the bank doing it :

I love being in this room. Its the perfect space for our little lady. What little thing has inspired you to design a room around? What’s your favorite thing about your little ones nursery?
Just for fun here’s another mood board I did for my sweet friend Libby who is expecting baby boy K in August!!! She already has the crib and changing table below so I incorporated their rich brown color and designed the room around the vintage circus print over the crib…
Have a great week!

I love the room! What color are the other walls painted?

Such a beautiful nursery! I just discovered your blog recently while searching for pictures of the peony wallpaper and adore the space you have created. I must admit that it is now becoming a huge inspiration point for the nursery we are creating for our little miss! It encompasses so much of what I am envisioning!

Ashlee! I am flattered! Be sure to email me pics when done 🙂

I love the brass curtain rods, where did you find those? Beautiful room, so inspiring!-Mary

Mary, thank you! The curtain robs are actually old and from pottery barn. We had them in the room already and I was able to spray paint them an antique matte gold. 🙂

Beautiful nursery, Mallory! I've loved that peony wallpaper for sometime now and am obsessed with it in this room!

I was hoping you could help me. I have recently purchased the peony wallpaper you have in the nursery, and I was wondering if you could tell me what colour paint you used on the surrounding walls. I'm having difficulty matching one and I love the look you have in this room.
Thank you for your help!Cheers, Caroline

It's Valspar Ancient Olive (which really makes no sense) but it turned out to me the softest, mintiest green and we love it with the wallpaper. Email me and I can send you the exact barcode. Please send pics of your room 🙂
November 12, 2013 at 9:09 PM
I will send a picture when it's all done and styled! Hopefully it's soon! Thank you so much for the colour name. I've been searching for a light mint, but all I was finding was too yellow for me. Thank you!

I would love the paint colour and bar code as well please: email@example.com 🙂 Thank you! I live in BC, Canada and want to order this wallpaper but I am afraid of extra costs (i.e. duties). Beautiful nursery!

This is so pretty. I had my second in July and still haven't finished her nursery yet. I love the color palette that you've used here too – beautiful!

Mallory, This room is AMAZING!!! I am in love with it. Wondering if you have any peony wallpaper scraps left over that would SELL to me? I want to frame a small amount of it and am having a hard time spending 150 to use such a small amount of the roll. Thanks so much!

I absolutely adore your daughters nursery ! I love her wallpaper! I have been gushing over it on the anthropologie website and there is no where sweeter than a nursery for it! Great job! Her room is just beautiful!
October 15, 2014 at 2:32 AM
Hi! I love this nursery!! I was wondering where you found the antique matte gold spray paint? I have been looking everywhere & can't seem to find the right one. Thanks!Sommer
November 21, 2014 at 6:12 PM
So pretty! I have a question please… Do you prime before the gold spray paint or it's not necessary?
March 17, 2015 at 6:42 PM
Hi! The room is beautiful…perfect inspiration for the nursery I'm just starting for my 2.5 month old daughter (second child, obviously, haha)! I have a similar dresser that has been used in my family for the past 40 years that just needs to be repainted…would you mind sharing what paint colors you used, specifically the gold edges? I actually already own the wallpaper too but my older daughter doesn't want it in her room so its going in the new nursery! Thanks!

Gorgeous room! I realize this post is from a couple of years ago, but would you happen to remember what color the paint is? I’ve been looking for something just like it for my little one’s nursery. Thank you so much in advance!

Whoop, sorry about that. Just read all the comments above and found it. Thanks!
