Shabby Chic Pink and White Romantic Girl Nursery Room for Baby Juliet

 Ever since Jenna, the creative force behind Eat Drink Pretty found out she was expecting a little princess, she\’s been dreaming about her perfect nursery. \”I am such a girly-girl, thanks to my mom, who decorated my room growing up with pink heart wallpaper and a ruffly, pink canopy bed.\”


With her daughter Juliet\’s nursery room complete, this is Jenna\’s absolute favorite space in her home.  \”Every detail I dreamed for this nursery somehow came together so perfectly.  With my little girlie here, the nursery contains her sweet smell, little baby coos, and recently, her smiles.  We snuggle together everyday on the glider/chair and she grasps my hair in her chubby hands as she breastfeeds.  How could it not be my favorite space in our home, actually, in the entire world?\”


The more the nursery came together just as Jenna envisioned it. (Check out her inspiration board for the nursery here!) She was looking to create light, airy, pretty space that was fairly minimalistic.  \”With Juliet here I strive to keep the space as clean and clutter-free as possible, a chore that is nearly impossible with so much baby gear, clothes, diapers, etc.  But I take a few minutes each morning to clear away the clutter so that when the two of us are in there together I am focusing only on her and not on a messy nursery.\”
Her budget for Juliet\’s nursery was $1,500.  She did a great job of sticking within the budget thanks to a detailed excel spread sheet she used to keep a tally of every single thing we purchased, down to the $5 dollar wood glue for the framed wallpaper art. Jenna found inspiration all over the web and kept track through Pinterest.  The crib is Jenny Lind, a very affordable and popular style that is over baby blogs, and the addition of three simple shelves add so much to the small space on the wall. \”Many moms opt to simply put a changing pad on top of their dresser but I love having a
separate changing table.  It gives added storage, which is a must-have.\”



\”I love wall of frames and worked on this configuration for hours. I would arrange them on the floor, take photos with my phone and text my friends asking, \”which one is best\”?  I\’m very happy with how it turned out.  Those photos are of Erik and I as babies and are now replaced with Juliet\’s newborn photos (which I\’ll be posting soon!).\”


Jenna\’s husband Erik made an exact replica of wallpaper in frames from a photo I showed him on my Pinterest board.  \”He worked diligently on these, making sure there wasn\’t a single bubble in the wallpaper and that the white trim (that became the frame) was perfectly cut.  I love these so much.\”


Finding out you are having a baby girl is dangerous when you work so close to a Baby Gap.  \”The pink one was Juliet\’s Easter dress and she just wore the white one!  It\’s nice that they serve multiple purposes (decorative and clothing) because she will soon grow out of them.\”
