Floral Nursery Inspiration


Welcome to baby Eden’s garden: a modern floral inspired nursery for our little girl.

When we had baby number two, we decided to transform our son’s nursery into our little girl’s bedroom. Three-year-old Silas moved to the spare room, since it has a larger space for him to play. It was sad to take down his special wallpaper but easy enough to put it back up in his new, more grown-up room. 


I had a lot less time to dream up Eden’s bedroom, but I discovered that by changing around just a few key things, you can make a room look and feel completely refreshed. 

Floral Wallpaper 

Here’s how I tackled the challenge:

I wanted her custom wallpaper to be full of leaves, but with a touch of floral. So, I painted leaves and greens in muted neutrals and then added in some pinky, orangey pops to the color palette. (We’re a big nature family, and we wanted her to wake up every day surrounded by that beauty.) And then, because I like the impact of a room that’s completely wallpapered, that’s just what I did. But if you wanted to paper just one wall, that would transform the space as well! Our goal was to make it feel like it was Eden’s own secret garden.

Besides changing the wallpaper, we also made the space new by swapping out the wall art, adding a new light fixture, a few hooks, a cute leaf pillow, and a green side table.

Lastly, I created a custom art print based on the nickname that Silas gave his tiny little sister: Strawberry. (We also call her Edenberry.). So, of course, I had to paint her a big, sweet strawberry.

I’m still working on adding more art to the walls, but I don’t suggest rushing that step. Take a break and wait until you see what needs to be added. It will all come together naturally.

Nursery Inspiration Board

Here’s the inspiration board I made when I was imagining baby Eden’s garden.

Nursery Mood Board 

Starting with a vision board always helps me stay on track as I work toward my design goals, and it helps me keep the coloring and style consistent, too. Give it a try! It’s a whole lot of fun.

Guiding words I kept in mind included:

  • Nature
  • Fresh
  • Earthy
  • Garden
  • Modern
  • Cozy
  • Peaceful
  • Timeless

Wallpaper makes an amazing difference, but I understand that it’s also an investment. That’s why I design my wallpaper to grow with your family. The patterns are great for kids, but they’re not childish. I keep the design fresh and modern, with a happy vibe that’s easy to live with. See all the wallpaper designs here.

I'm always imagining beautiful new wallpaper concepts, and I'd love to hear what you've dreaming of too! Drop me a line and share your room-refreshing visions with me. 

I hope you enjoyed this tour of our little girl's nursery. Thank you Sarah Box for capturing this space and our family so well.
