Warning: You'll Be Jealous of This Gorgeous Nursery

Joni of Lay Baby Lay put together a beautiful nursery for her baby, Vivien Charles Lay (such a great name!). I think this nursery is one my personal favorites among those I've posted here. Really, really lovely.

I originally saw a peek of this room on Little Lovely and immediately reached out to Joni to say: more photos please. She generously shared and now we all get to see some up close shots of the fabulous details.


I'm especially digging the color scheme here. The color on the walls hits that perfect note between aqua and mint. Also. Make sure to notice the charming birdcage card holder.

The subtle, modern print on the crib bedding is lovely. It fits in so nicely that you almost don't even notice it. I love design like that. The pretty paper bunting was a DIY project.

I hadn't seen this hand knit mobile by Blabla Kids before and now I'm dying over the sweetness.

Such a great mix of modern lines and antiques curves. I love what the chevron rug does for the space.

The way Joni has introduced the color black into the room is smart and impressive to me.

There are sweet personal touches throughout the room that prevent it from feeling like it was plucked out of a catalog. Vintage snapshots and little quotes with personal meaning. Love that.

Here's baby Vivi herself -- the tiny irresistable pink bundle in the middle of the crib. Of course, she's all grown up now. : )

The gallery display is brilliantly done. Asymmetric, but balanced. Those frames bring it all together. You can find details about this particular display here.

A great big internet thank you to Joni for sharing Vivian's nursery with us. It has my brain buzzing with all sorts of ideas.
