You might be perplexed by these images and say to yourself, I thought she was planning a nursery? I realize none of these rooms are very kid-like but from each photo is a tiny bit of inspiration that will become the perfect space for my baby girl.

I could go a million directions with a nursery from rainbow modernist to more baby-themed motifs. But for some reason these are the images I keep coming back to that feel “right”. Watery pinks, blues and greens are colors you’ll see appear over and over in the house once it’s complete. Sometimes they’ll have a more traditional/formal nod and other times infusions of modern and scandinavian style cues. Below notes on what’s catching my eye. In the coming weeks (I’m 25 weeks!) how it will all come together.

Psst I’m pinning my favorite baby/kid ideas at pinterest.com/katyelliott/baby-stuff/

The owners of Ochre’s Shelter Island home as featured in House Beautiful. Love the colors, mix of texture, rock water color painting and sky colored paneled paintings. I would like to find an old dresser to use as a changing table. Something about the color in the above cabinet really grabbed my eye.

Love this room from the book Rooms To Inspire By The Sea via Mrs. Blandings. I thought about building a bench so we can all have family reading time together. Love all the different stripes mixed together.

Green Doors and Shutters in France

Moody gray greens are my favorite color. In Provence I spotted this very particular green on front doors, shutters, lights and fences. “That’s my green,” I exclaimed to Greg! I painted the molding in my den Farrow & Ball’s Verte De Terre; which looks very similar. The gray undertones of the green pigment are gorgeous against stone. Below some snapshots of greens spotted around Provence.
