Itty Bitty Preppy Nursery

I recently had the immense pleasure of getting to decorate a nursery (as a surprise!) for a dear friend.  Her sweet husband hired me while they were out of town, and my hubby and I put it together before her homecoming.

The space was a small bonus room off the master suite...a space many people use as an extra closet, so it was a challenge to make it look like a nursery.  I think it turned out perfect though, and my friend adores it (which is all that really matters to me)!  Check out the photos and let me know what you think about this itty bitty preppy space.

Overall...


And details, details...









It's impossible to pick out my most favorite thing in this room.  I love everything!  If you're interested, the sources for all the items we placed in the space can be found below.

How do you think it all turned out?  What's your favorite piece or part?  It's amazing how a closet can be transformed into a room with just a little creativity and some (ok, a lot of...) elbow grease!

Wow, that is a seriously hard working closet!!! And really, what do you "need" in a nursery anyway? I think it's perfect! What an awesome surprise for a new mama!

Great Job Kristen! Love it, one of my favorite posts ever. The cute triangle bunting (?) is sweet. It adds just the right amount of color with out being juvenile. The sweet corner shelf is great also. Super sweet space. How fun to do that for a friend. Bet your neighbors are thrilled you are there!

Amazing Kristen! I love the use of color on the ceiling. It brings in the pop without overpowering the space. Very clever! You have a very lucky friend.
