Reader Room Design: Sweet Nursery for a Baby Girl

To kick of a month of awesome guest bloggers and reader home tours while I take maternity leave, I have Karla from The Purple Bow, sharing the beautiful nursery she designed for her daughter! Be sure to visit Karla's lovely blog when you have a chance. Enjoy!

Hi! This is Karla from The Purple Bow Blog, I couldn't believe Julie invited me to guest post on her blog, I have been her loyal reader ever since I discovered the blogging that she is going to be a MOM and will continue fulfilling her life as a designer, as a shop owner and as a wife, I can't help but to admire her even more! Well, I haven't shared my little daughter's place in my blog yet, so I thought this was a good time (talking about future moms) to share...

That glider was an old one, the wood was dark brown and the fabric was brown as well (see the before picture here), so I painted it white, bought this yellow chevron fabric and asked my seamstress to reupholster it, the little lamp was also painted by me and "reupholstered" by my seamstress. The "L" monogrammed pillow is from Pottery Barn, the sheep skin rug from IKEA, the little side table from Harlow's Nest and the yellow LOVE paint at the back from Made by Girl.

This is my daughter's bookshelf, the bunnies were all gifts, the yellow lacquer boxes from The Container Store, the L letter from Michaels and the storage bin from The Container Store as well. I decorated it with so much love and we use that glider almost daily before sleeping... one of my favorite moments with my daughter is there, when her head lays on my heart while I read and I feel her close again. Thanks a lot Julie for having me here! ~ Karla
