This nursery is nothing short of a modern take on a classic ballet. Ballerina themed nurseries have been popular as long as little girls have loved tutus, so we decided to combine this iconic classical ballet theme with one of the cutest feathery friends we've seen in a while. The black furniture pieces add the perfect contrast against the white, blush, and peach flowers, and I love that the decor in the room can grow with our little ballerina in training.
Something old, something new.... something borrowed... something, well, not blue, but you get the idea! This classic wedding saying applies to the nursery too - we've always been a fan of an eclectic mix of new and repurposed items in nursery design, but I'm especially all heart eyes over mom's broken in ballet shoes making their decorative debut in this nursery. Appropriate for multiple reasons, the ballet shoes add a sweet shade of peach to the simple white walls, and add to the "ballerina theme" that gives our swan accents the Swan Lake appeal.
Swans have established themselves as one of the top popular furry, err feathery, friends - along with llamas
, hedgehogs, and flamingos
! Their graceful look and classic modern appeal add a whimsical touch to a sweet and simple nursery design. And then, we made it all kinds of girly with those floral accents and the felt floral garland around that AHHHHH-mazing Faux Swan Taxidermy over the dresser.
So, whether you're designing a traditional ballerina inspired nursery, looking for ways to incorporate the trendy swan into your nursery, or just LOVE the idea of the black and white contrast - we hope this sweet nursery inspires your own take on this classical ballet.
