It's no secret, we're crazy for cacti! We've been working hard on adding the cutest cactus inspired crib bedding to our available nursery collections, and one of our absolute favorite prickly prints is a sweet floral watercolor cactus design that we let inspire a soft and sweet version of the popular cactus nursery decor trend for a baby girl. Because y'all, cactus is totally soft and sweet, right? Ha! Well... in THIS nursery it is...
Soft shades of blush pink, vintage white wood, and pure sweetness will always be in style for baby girl's room designs. And I love, love, love how at first glance at this room you see a sweet pink and white nursery design. Simple, clean, and a nice transitional appeal - it's the details in this room that give it it's trendy cactus twist.
A girl can never have too many ruffles and bows. That's just an unspoken rule. And, it applies to room design too! The vintage linen curtains were a bit of a splurge from RHTeen.com, but add the flowy feminine feel to the room. I love how the crib is unexpectedly in front of the windows; which is a great design tip - don't be afraid to rearrange the room! Remember, great design is unexpected. Just because there's a big wall, it doesn't mean the biggest piece of furniture needs to go in front of it. The chair adds a clean, bright white to the design, and the whitewashed dresser adds a subtle contrast warming up the room with texture and style. The simple pattern on the drawers compliments perfectly with the gorgeous carved wood mirror above the dresser.
And that cactus baby bedding. Yup, it makes the room right? Our general rule in starting any room design is to get a good idea of what your textile inspiration will be. In the nursery, the crib bedding is just a natural spot to start the room design around (since hopefully, the baby will be spending the MOST time there - SLEEPING - ha!). And then use that print to help tie in other parts of the room. With this design, we wanted to add a little more light shades of pink to match the blush painted walls. Our blush gathered ruffle crib skirt was a perfect match with the sweet shades of pink in the cactus crib sheet, and we added a final touch with a few big blush bows across the cactus crib rail cover. A little cactus pillow here... and a matching cactus changing pad cover there... and VOILA! The most stunning sweet, subtle, and dreamy baby girl cactus nursery you've ever seen!
Ahhh! We almost forgot! That custom wood monogram? You just HAVE to have it? No worries - you can get it right HERE. And, spray paint it whatever color you'd like... change it up for her big girl room... or paint it again down the road. How cool would it be for your baby girl to be able to take her monogram from her nursery to college? That's a pretty cool keepsake. :-)
