Elizabeth Sullivan Designs A Nursery...(Via Made By Girl)

I've been getting a BUNCH OF EMAILS from a lot of you out there regarding your home. Some emails were TOO LARGE & I had to delete them while others didn't fit the requirements. So, hopefully no one will get OFFENDED if I didn't select your pictures! 

This particular submission came in from a talented Interior Designer named Elizabeth Sullivan. It's not necessarily part of her home but a nursery she put together for a client. 

In Elizabeth's own words, "It was a very low budget, we bought everything online and had it sent to her house, then I went out and painted the stripes and put it all together in one day!" 


Well, I think she did a fantastic job! If I had a baby, this is the STYLE of nursery I'd gravitate towards. When I look at the WALL OF BOOKS it makes me want to pick one up & read it! It's also a smart way to ENTICE children to READ by including in within the decor!

ANNELISE: Not sure where she got hers from, you may want to ask Elizabeth through her contact page on her site.

However, Here's one by Jonathan Adler:

Thanks for posting, Jen! The lamp is simply an Ikea floor lamp!

Ohh Wow what a nursery!! I love it!! It is so much fun and it can be used for a boy or a girl. I love these pseudo nurseries that aren't yellow but can be used for both! I love the giraffe lamp & that big elephant is too cute!!! That mobile is adorable too! =) If I was having a baby this nursery would definitely be my source of inspiration!! =)

LOVE the wall of books! You can fit way more books there than on the little shelves that also face the books forward. So great!

Ebony said...

Oh yes, this is perfection. I can't wait to have a library of books to read my children; I recently got given a bunch of little golden books so the collection has started!

Of all the place I saw here, this is my favorite. I know you can't really compare, because it's a nursery, but this place spoke to my heart. I can't believe she did it in one day! Bravissimo!

What a sweet baby room! I've seen stripes on walls but not just the ceiling! My favorite by far is the unique bookcase wall! It adds so much extra color to the room!
