Warning: You'll Be Jealous of This Gorgeous Nursery

Baby 53

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.

I dont like it at all, it looks like the room was made for an 80 yr old... I dont like the colors or anything they used.

I love it. 

I like it when I see not-so-common colors in a nursery.  Like the black.  Beautifully done.


I can't belive I'm the only one who appreciates this room, so far!

Very pretty, but the trend of hanging strangulation hazards, I mean decorations, from the crib bothers me.

Cute but very cold looking. The pennant swag across the crib is a MAJOR strangulation Danger as well! The room kind of looks like it was Dad's hangout & you put a crib & dresser in it.

I like this. She will convert to future rooms easily. It doesn't scream "baby in here". I like it, not jealous though.

I love it, I think it is adorable. I love the mobile, wall color, rug, wall art, and dresser. So cute and unique! The only thing I don't like is the one chair that was pulled out of Cliff and Clair Huxtable's living room--ick ugly! Everything else is stellar in my book.

not my taste at all, too many strangulation hazards, and charles is an awful middle name for a little girl.

Not really my taste, I feel bad for whatever child ends up in this room too. It seems so sterile and cold, there is nothing kid friendly about it, except a teddy bear, the crib, and that ugly little mobile thing. Also, they better take all that crap off of and out of the crib before they put a baby in it, or we will be reading an article about chocking hazards and stupid parents next.
