Phoenix, mom of wonderful 3 year old little man, was so excited she’s finally expecting a baby girl. Basing on the past experience she knew how tricky yet interesting it is to design a nursery for a tot, but this time she could do it differently – as girly as she could. The room turned out very feminine, serene and joyful. There’s a pretty bold combination of blue, pink and green, but it looks surprisingly harmonious, fresh and cheery. As for the room’s décor, I think it has longevity and good possibilities for slight transition, when her child will make more her own as she gets older. Take a look to the photos below to get inspired!
