Well it’s here. The sixth week of the One Room Challenge – aka reveal day!
Thank you to Linda of Calling it Home who orchestrates this challenge biannually. It’s such an exciting way to get a sneak peak into other blogger’s homes (or client’s homes) and watch them transform their spaces. The creativity and let’s face it, endurance through it all, is remarkably inspiring.
For my One Room Challenge, I finally completed my daughter Olivia’s nursery. Shamefully, I only began this nursery design two weeks before she was born. Of course, it was nearly impossible to finish before her arrival. Olivia who is now 10 weeks old is almost ready to transition to her own room hence why I needed a kick in the butt to get this done!
My inspiration all began with this charming wallpaper. This print reminds me of a fairy tale enchanted forest where everything is magical and it’s the norm for over-sized talking animals to join you for a garden tea party. . . is it obvious I watched Alice and Wonderland one too many times as a child 🙂
The great thing about this accent wallpaper is that this printed silhouette is still chic and subtle enough for Olivia to grow with. Something that was definitely high on my priority list. You can view more about the wallpaper from my week 1 post.
In my make-believe enchanted forest, the trees are draped with the prettiest of flowers so naturally, it’s only fitting to add some to this space. Since the crib is fairly neutral against the wallpaper, I wanted to make it pop with a little art work from Minted and my very own DIY flower mobile.
As we continue through my fairy tale world, there’s always a quaint little house. To mimic this idea, I created a house silhouette on the wall with pink paint which acts as the backdrop for Olivia’s crafting nook.
I also added hooks on the wall in fun pastel colours
Last but not least, Olivia’s dresser which incorporates the wood tones and also doubles as her change station. These simple DIY triangle shelves also make great wall displays.
As always, thanks so much for following along on my ORC journey. Don’t forget to check out all the other spaces!

I love this modern space with little hints of classic/traditional! Great mix of style and color. It’s fun and hip, but perfectly soothing for a new baby, too! Wonderful job!!!
Thanks Melissa! I had so much fun putting it together!
OMG that floral chandy is adorable!! Beautiful reveal!
It was a last minute add on but I love the way it turned out! Thanks so much Albertina!
So cute. I love the sophistication of it.
I LOVE this! Your enchanted forest is beautiful 🙂 Everything ties together so beautifully. I especially love the wallpaper and that craft nook is awesome. Olivia is a lucky girl!
Thanks so much Amy! I hoping she will get a lot of use out of the crafting nook as she becomes a toddler.
Love this room Sabrina! The DIY mobile is so charming. How sweet that she has spaces she’ll ‘grow into’ as well, like the table and chairs. The palette is so soft and pretty too. Well done!
Thanks Jen! The soft palette makes it so much easier to change up in the future as her personality starts to develop.
I love the pink house on the wall. what a cute idea!
Thanks Justynn! I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out!!
So beautiful! It’s such a quiet and calming room.
Thanks Madeline. Hoping it will keep baby calm too 🙂
The whole room looks amazing.
Thanks so much Rose!
this is such a magical and beautiful space- love the paper you chose as the jumping off point. it’s gorgeous!
Thank you Cassie!
OH my! SO Gorgeous! What a sweet space for your little one. I love the artwork, and those cubes!!! That Giraffe is so stinking cute too! Great job
That wallpaper paired with that fixture…and the subtle yet perfectly intentional touches of pink. I AM IN LOVE!!! Bravo! It’s sooo gorgeous! xx
Olivia is one lucky baby, this room is utterly adorable! Don’t fret about starting on the nursery late, I did mine 6 months after the baby was born! LOL! I love the simplicity of all and all the details truly make this a very beautiful space! Congrats & CHEERS to us for another room done!
Beautiful and really whimsical!
The flowers bring poetry and softness to the nursery, I love it!!!
A room makeover with a baby is an “adventure” so CONGRATULATIONS for this lovely nursery 🙂
the nursery is beautiful. such a magical little spot. congrats
I love the wallpaper! And the flower mobile is so pretty and such a fun and unique idea! I love how your room turned out!
That flower mobile is awesome! The whole room is beautiful – the wallpaper, the shelves, the side table, the crib…it’s all so lovely! I’m posting a round up of my fave ORC spaces and I hope you don’t mind me sharing yours!
Where did you find that awesome Dresser/ changing table? I love the finish!
Hi Rachel, it’s from Wayfair – Andover Mills Robin 6 Drawer Dresser
Thanks for taking the time to let know. Love the nursery!
This is so beautiful!!! It’s so serene; perfect for a nursery.
You’ve probably read this a lot, but your room is absolutely gorgeous! I featured it today on my favorite Kid’s spaces from the ORC!!! Thank you for the inspiration!!!
So so so beautiful. I would love this room for myself! I would love to know what you affixed to the top of the dresser for the changing pad to fit into. Thanks!
I bought a changing kit which fits on top of any dresser. This one is from Delta Children, you can view it here: http://amzn.to/1UxUfTi
What a peaceful, contemporary space!
And it will definitely ‘grow with’ the baby!
I wanted to ask are your ikea stools painted in mint? if so may I ask what shade it is? Thanks so much!
Yes, I painted the wooden stool with Whipped Mint (MQ3-20), Behr. Such a quick and easy project to do!
I love your dresser and floating book shelves. Where did you find those. They would be perfect for the little man cave i’m in the process of designing.
Hi Erin, we made the triangle bookshelves but you can also purchase them from here and the dresser is from Wayfair, here is the link….
Hi Sabrina, what are the dimensions of your triangle shelves? Thanks!
How did you make that beautiful mobile? I’m hoping to make something like it but would appreciate any tips/advice you have!
Absolutely gorgeous! Can you tell me how many rolls of wallpaper you ended up needing? Thanks!
Hi Margaret, We got 3 rolls for our wall although our third roll we only needed about a 1/4 of it. I believe each roll covers 52 sq. ft.
hi! love this nursery!! I am obsessed with the dresser, in your photos it looks grayish but the link looks super brown! What is it in real life?? More like your photos or Wayfair’s photos?
Hi Kelsey, I was worried about the same thing when I put the order through but I was very happy with the colour. It has a brownish-greyish hue to it, as you see in my images.
What are the measures for the triangle shelves ? What kind of wood are you used and what is the color. And how do you do your book shelve with olivia books.
Hi! I absolutely love your wood floating bookshelves! Did you make them yourself or purchase them from somewhere? I would love to have them in my daughter’s nursery.
We made the books shelves! It’s fairly simple to make, we used three-1″x2″ pieces of wood to create each shelf.
Hi! I absolutely love your flower mobile! How did you make it? I am looking to do something similar in my little girls room
Where is the chandelier from?
Hi Jessica, I found it from a thrift store!
Hi there! Love thya book shelves! Do you know what colour of stain you used?
I used Minwax Staining cloths in Natural Oak.
Beautiful nursery 🙂 I absolutely love it! May I ask you if the storage with the “Good” and “organize” words on it can be bought online? 🙂
I bought the storage bins from HomeSense and unfortunately, they do not sell online.
We’re still the answers to the flower mobile ??
DONT MEAN TO SOUND BLUNT THEN SORRY XX
Also do you hand sand paper everything down or use a electric sander? ? and if so, what is the sand paper u use?? +am about to give up up my stairs amd sanding them by hand but the paper useless keeps ripping. Also theres years of don’t no what, thick black stuff on them from were av taken the carpet up that was down wen I moved in xxx
Hi Mary, I definitely use an electric hand sander on most of my projects. It makes the job so much easier.
