Adorable Aqua and Red Nursery

Why Don't You

I have been so drawn to aqua and red color combos lately (here and here). So of course, I loved seeing this adorable nursery Cara emailed me about. She wanted to share her fantastic results with my pelmet box tutorial:


The fabric is Alexander Henry’s Country Cross Stitch (available at JoAnn’s and at Purl SoHo). The red trim is 1/4″ bias tape.

The wall color is Baby Bird by Porter Paints.

The crib (and not pictured dresser) are from Wal-Mart’s Baby Mod line, which I’ve used in other client’s projects before. I love the furniture line and so does Cara.
Cara found the adorable vintage chair for $10. It was in pretty bad shape when she bought it!


She had it reupholstered in Fabricut’s Bonomi Chevron in Sky.


Doesn’t it look comfy and perfect for a nursery?


The two pieces of art on the wall are from Etsy sellers. The Stay Calm poster is by sfgirlbybay and ASL poster is from TwoSarahs.




The toddler bed was a $30 resale shop find. Cara sewed the adorable pillow and quilt on the bed.


The white bookshelf is from Target (here’s a similar one). Cara hodge-podged some Martha Stewart paper on the inside back to give it some color.


And check out this mini quilt! Isn’t it adorable? Apparently there are plans to make a whole wall’s worth of different mini-quilts! WOW!


Great job, Cara! And thanks for sharing your beautiful photos!

  1. Wow, what a great nursery! Love how it is not too "babyish"!! And I've really been digging the red and aqua combo too…in this case it could work for a boy or a girl. Gosh, I wish I could sew…look at all the amazing things you can do if you can. That chair looks amazing in the new blue and white chevron fabric!!! Thanks to both of you for sharing this space with us:)

  8. Long time lurker, speaking up!

    I just moved into a new house and am doing my 8 year old's room in aqua and red. I'm having a really hard time finding a wall color that we both like. I've never heard of porter paints, but I'll have to check this color out. Hopefully there is a distributor in Denver!
    Also, I love the Keep Calm poster, but have you seen the one on etsy that says "Keep Calm and Eat a Cupcake." It has a cupcake on top instead of a crown!
