lucy's nursery reveal

this is one of my favourite rooms in the house - our little lucy's room. it isn't big, it isn't fancy but it's just right for her!

i had planned the colours well before lucy was born, before i knew it was a girl! i figured the chartreuse-y/mustard, white, grey and some navy blue would please either a girl or boy. but like all rooms, it's been a work in progress - that's the way i like to create in our home, one bit at a time.

  1. Nice job on your nursery - it's gorgeous! I have this linked to my nursery reveals roundup post as well today, for inspiration!

    1. why thank you!! that's very flattering ♥

  2. what colour did you use on the walls?

    1. oh i wish i could tell you... i'm the person that buys paint, then brings it back to add a little bit of this and little bit of that, then at home i end up mixing in something completely different... ha! sorry, there is no name to this hodge-podge paint...
