Colorful Hot Air Balloon Themed Baby Girl Nursery Room Reveal


Jessica had so much fun redecorating the nursery for her third little girl #3 and poured every last bit of second trimester energy she had into it.She was secretly glad she didn\’t have to paint the walls a more boy-ish color! \”My personal design style is kind of random. I repurpose a lot of thrift store items in my décor, and like a vintage,  clean lined, look. This nursery is more bright and fun than how I would decorate my living room, but a kids room seems to give you chance to go a little bit over the top.\” Being her third chance to decorate a room for baby, Jessica felt like made bolder decorating choices in her room decorating, like the window cornice and ombre dresser this time around. And with knowledge and experience, she DIY\’d most of the room!



The wall color of the room has been the same since Jessica moved into her house four years ago and she still loves it. The furniture was all used with her previous kids, which meant she spent around $300 to redecorate. She chose the yellow and coral to go along with the soft teal because those are her favorite colors of the moment, and they\’re girly without being too girly. She complimented the colors with fabrics from Fabric Worm in the mod basics organic line.


Jessica created her own crib bedding herself.  \”The ruffled crib skirt and herringbone quilt were the most work, of course…but I love to sew so it was quite enjoyable for me! The hardest part was picking out the fabric for each piece. I still want to make a few more gauze blankets and burp cloths….but we\’ll see if I get around to that. I made a new changing pad cover and bought some wire baskets for the changing table storage. Charlotte\’s diapers are enormous compared to the newborn sized ones! Which I don\’t have any of yet…soon I\’ll need to start stocking up, huh?


\”My favorite details are the vintage earrings that I used to clip up photos on her photo board. They add a unique touch and hint of glamour! I also am in love with the little thrifted glass bowl on her dresser that I filled with teeny headbands and clips.I made the window cornice box from a huge piece of insulation foam I got at Lowes, using this tutorial! I covered it in white linen and pinned some butter yellow ric rac from Ribbon Retreat around the top and bottom to outline it. I LOVE love love how this turned out.\”




Jessica really outdid herself with DIY elements that she placed around the room. To bring in a hot air balloon theme, she created a custom hot air balloon and cloud mobile, as well as a 3d art piece where the balloons float towards you. Uunique embroidery hoop art made the walls pop and brought in the colors of the room. She made the window cornice out of foam, tape, and fabric, and sewed a scalloped fabric garland.





\”I think it\’s important to have meaningful items in such a special room. I have a special silver frame on the dresser that I\’ve had displayed in all my girls nurseries, and I can\’t wait to add a picture of this newest one to it! There is also a little white toy box that all my girls have used in the space as well. It corrals books and stuffed animals very nicely! I knew I wanted to have my dad create an oversized monogram to hang on the wall, so that meant we had to have a name picked out ahead of time-something we\’d never done before. It turns out we could only agree on one name, so it was actually pretty easy once we tackled that!



The end result is a happy and cheerful room for Jessica\’s baby that can be easily transitioned into a big girl room. \”Don\’t be afraid to try making aspects of the nursery yourself!\” Jessica advises \”You can save a lot of money that way, and in the future, brag to your child about how you made their first (fill in the blank) by hand!\” Thanks for sharing your baby girl\’s beautiful room with us Jessica!

    Does Jessica have the fabric names for those she chose? Also is she interested in making crib bedding! I so love every piece of the crib bedding she made!!

  3. Carrie says:

    I think I found the fabric online. It’s from the Birch Fabrics “Mod Basics” collection in the colors coral, sun and pool. I was able to find the fabric to buy at some stores on Etsy as well as at, but I’m sure you can find them elsewhere as well. I’m about to order some and try to make the window treatment and wall art display. I wish I had the skills to make the quilt…it’s so darn cute!

    Hope this helps!
