designing my daughter’s room has been such a fun project for me. i wanted her room to feel sophisticated, warm, alive (hence all the plants) and something she could grow into (we can do without pinks and purples for now!). the inspiration for the entire room came from the idea of painting a mural on her wall. i knew i wanted one accent wall navy, after all, that is her name, and some type of “nap time botanical” as the mural. our little florida neighborhood is filled with kumquat and magnolia trees, so that’s how i chose the plants—plus those pops of white and orange are so fun! i used acrylic paint (ew…not a fan) on the mural and that took couple months of short painting sessions here and there, mostly while jensen napped (which means i’ve held true to my “nap time botanical” theme). i’m really not sure how long the entire project took me, but i am happy with how it turned out. really! y’all know patterns and colors is new for me – usually everything is white! the rest of her room (which is white) pulled together quickly after the mural was finished. we had most of the large pieces of furniture from jensen’s nursery including the crib and rocking chair while the dreamy white bookcase came from my childhood home! we salvaged the gold mirror when we bought our cottage and the bar cart (as a makeshift changing table) was a fun addition to the room because za and i have been wanting one for awhile (once she’s potty trained, there will definitely be liquor on that cart)! all of the decorations / fun knick knacks were given to navy from loved ones. i hope you enjoy the photos (below the photos is a list of shout outs)!

    Hi! I’m in love with your nursery for Navy. I’m 21 weeks pregnant and we have my husband Jenny Lind crib that is 35 years old and is the exact one you have. It’s in great condition but needs a little TLC. I’ve done some research, but haven’t found a ton. What did you do to the Jenny Lind you have? I cleaned ours with simple greens solution and bought some old English. When I cleaned the crib it took some of the stain off, so now I’m unsure on what to do. 🙁 Any tips or products you would recommend?

    Thank you for the help!
