Texas mom and 7 year old daughter Audrey put together this pretty lavender girl's room that shines! Mom tells weeDECOR, "I'm emailing you photos of my daughter's room which turned out beautifully thanks to the piece I bought from weeDECOR! We love it!" The decorating project started when Audrey wanted a "big girl room" in her favorite shade of violet that could grow with her for several years. So, mom got to work with some super creative decorating ideas and lovely handmade finishing touches. Mom shares, "The polka dot bedding set and curtains are made by JoJo Designs in the theme of 'Mod Dots' polka dot design in purple and brown. Most accessories including the lamp, pillow, purple finials and tie-backs, etc. are from Target's Circo Collection." Now, here's where mom's creativity comes in to play. She explains, "The furniture is actually MY OWN childhood furniture purchased by my parents in 1977 which I lovingly refinished entirely in white - including new hardware, paint, etc. It was made by Bassett. The mirror over her dresser is an antique which used to be gold and I redid in a shabby/distressed white." We inquired about her lovely wall hangings and Mom divulged, "Yes, I actually made the picture frame collage / wall hanging myself comprised of Disney Princess pictures and a picture of my daughter dressed as Cinderella. The idea was that the wall hangings can grow with her and as she grows. For example, the princess photos will be changed out to pictures of her with friends, cheerleading, etc. I used violet, faux-leather in different lengths and secured them over a white wrought iron bar attached to violet faux-leather covered frames." "Lastly, the perfect accent paint we chose to compliment her décor was Valspar eggshell in "Purpling Dawn" that I purchased at Lowe's. We topped it off with a white ceiling fan along with your BEAUTIFUL weeDecor polka dot personalized wall decal which matched the Mod Dots theme PERFECTLY and voila! Just gorgeous!  A big thanks to mom and Audrey for sending in their photos.

A Green Polka Dot Nursery for a Happy Baby Room October 02 2009

[caption id="attachment_842" align="aligncenter" width="500" caption="Green polka dot nursery with dragonfly & butterfly decor"]Green polka dot nursery with dragonfly & butterfly decor[/caption] We found this green polka dot nursery from Alli Taylor and our creative juices started to flow!  Green is such a versatile color for a baby room and polka dots lend tons of fexibility to your decorating.  This shade of green, in particular, is appropriate for a boy or girl nursery.  It can be brightened up with white or sun yellow accents.  Or, green can be toned down with chocolate brown, mocha, or beige.  Alli Taylor decorated with an insect themed nursery in mind by embroidering the reversible bumper with butterflies and dragonflies and adorning with like wall hangings.  So cute!  You could easily make this theme a bit more boy-friendly by decorating with turtle and frog wall canvases or removable wall decals.  Think about introducing other patterns and texture to the polka dots.  We found the luxurious white shag carpet shown in the photo inspiring. It's a unique touch that brings the warmth and coziness we crave in our baby rooms.  You can create texture with more earth-friendly materials such as a natural grass woven floor mat which would bring a more earthy, modern feel to the nursery. The 4 piece polka dot baby bedding set (currently on sale for $129), valence, lamp, and wall hangings can all be found at Baby's 'R Us. See our other inspiring ideas for a themed nursery.
