Real Room Tour: Happy New Year/Happy New Nursery

Johanna designed this spectacular nursery for her daughter Mia and I’m so impressed.  Another girl’s nursery with just the right amount of pink and the right amount of fun.

The first thing that really jumps out at you is the chalkboard wall.  This was a bold choice and it looks a-mazing– especially with the meticulously drawn frames that Johanna added.  I’m sure she can’t wait to see what Mia will design on there as well!

The second fantastic thing you’re sure to notice is the custom paint job on the crib.  Johanna took a Babyletto Mercer crib and painted the brown sides a funky shade of pink.  I know this was a lot of work, but the results look so good that I wouldn’t be surprised if the folks at Babyletto consider doing the sides in fun colors after seeing this.

The bedding and striped pillow were purchased on etsy and Johanna made the elephant pillow herself!

The reading area is punctuated with fun colors and looks bright and cozy.

The pops of color against the gray are so beautiful.  I love the aqua, the green and the tiny bursts of yellow.

The dressers are old fashioned pieces made modern with a new coat of paint and dressed up with knobs from Anthropologie.

The adorable knick-knacks on the shelves are such a well curated little collection.  I love seeing Max, the adorable little bunny from yOomii.

There are a few of the little gray birds painted on the walls in various places for an extra personal touch.

The photos of this nursery are just as great as the nursery itself.  Johanna is an amazing photographer based in Austin, TX and you can see more of her work at Hanna Mac Photography and on her blog.  You can see more pictures and information about this room on her blog as well.

Thank you so much Johanna for sending me the beautiful photos of your nursery.  I am so impressed with the room you put together for Mia.  Let me know if you’re ever doing any work in Florida.  I’ll have to book you for a photo session!

Great job on the nursery! I love the painted crib. What kind of paint did you use on the crib? I am looking to re-paint the one I have but am not sure what type of paint to use that is baby safe.
