Sweet little dreams: gender neutral nursery

Because we did not want to know the sex of the baby while pregnant the nursery decor had to remain gender neutral. In a previous post I presented the fabric which influenced the rest of the decor- pale blues and greens, with pops of bright orange.

I wanted to keep it calm and serene, not too over the top babyish. That being said I did want it to clearly be a baby's room but perhaps a classy baby:)

So here it is:    
I love the pattern created by the star light.

 The bedding, drapery and change table accessories were made by my mother.

The framed parrot is actually needle point my mother made in the 1960s back in Portugal. Th colors work perfectly in the nursery.

 The diaper bag is held up by an owl hook- so cute!
 The metal pacifier was welded by my father-in-law for the birth of his first daughter.


  1. What a beautiful room!! I love the colors. What a perfect place for your baby, full of love from all your family!! The pacifier and owl hook are lovely!!
