Decorating + Inspiration

A Perfectly Peachy Nursery

Written by Ashley Pepitone of Camp Makery for Building Blocks.


When I first found out I was pregnant I decided that my nursery would be centered around one creative piece of inspiration. I love the local Atlanta creative community and when I found Ashley Buzzy’s Sweet as a Peach print, I knew it had to be my starting point.

I took straight to Pinterest and started gathering inspiration for peach and gold nurseries. My goal was to create a nursery that was soothing and serene, but still felt true to my design style. When designing for little girls, I like to walk the line between sweet and eclectic. I found myself gravitating towards nursery photos that also incorporated more saturated colors like brighter corals and turquoise so I decided to mix that into my design.

To get started, I knew the Harper Dot Nursery Collection in Coral was an obvious choice. Its clean lines and playful dots ground the space nicely and allowed me to go a little bit frillier with some of the other décor pieces. For the windows, I used the Sailcloth drape and added mint and coral pom-pom trim for a fun, girly accent. To finish off the room with that eclectic vibe I like, I included the Pagoda Chandelier, handmade pillows (by my mother), and a Liddabits Design Shop banner hanging on sparkly branches in lieu of a mobile.

I wanted to include my first daughter, Delaney, in the creation of her baby sister’s room as well. She painted two masterpieces which I framed and added to the gallery wall. It was a special way to get her excited for the new arrival and also add a special touch to the room. Delaney also helped me on the octagonal side table- a thrift store find that we refinished with chalk paint and new hardware. The geometric mirrors were also thrifted and we simply spray-painted the wooden frames gold. To add some extra texture, we added the quick sequin “T”. For that project, I just wrapped some sequin trim around a papier-mâché “T” from the craft store and secured it with hot glue.

All in all, the room came together perfectly. With a foundation of great Pottery Barn Kids products, some local art and a few DIY projects with Delaney, I’m so happy with how the room turned out. Our new baby girl will be sleeping in style with her “Sweet as a Peach” nursery!
