This corner of a baby's nursery includes elements that reflect a mature taste- such as the purple tulips and purple pottery jug- with whimsical elements such as a Curious George monkey and a homemade, stuffed character in primary colors sitting on top of a toile print pillow. A collection of photo albums helps anchor the dresser top as a focal point in the room.
I painted the ceiling a mint color (BM Jack and the Beanstalk) to match the adjoining parents' room that shares the colors of mint and purple, but I also introduced a taupe into the linen pattern.
You can see the taupe in the fabric piece I put onto a wooden frame and hung above this dresser, as well as the baby's bedskirt and blanket. By moving a way from a juvenile print, the baby's custom crib linen can be used for when she is ready to graduate to a bed and for years beyond.
