An Inspired Nursery

This nursery by Dina Bandman Interiors has been allllllllll over Instagram and Pinterest for good reason. It’s INSANELY GOOD. Like, when I saw it I audibly gasped.  The lemon wallpaper, the lucite canopy crib… I mean, it’s the stuff of dreams (and very, very large budgets).  I love it when showhouse rooms actually look like crazy, jaw dropping dream space rather than the trend of “weird and crazy for shock value”– which has been a  trend for a while.  It really makes me want to do a showhouse room!

I just adore this whole look– the amazing eye for detail and craftsman ship that went into aligning the wallpaper pattern with the fabric pattern exactly is not lost on my one bit!

Every inch is just so charming.

The closet lined in gingham paper with brass hardware is just to die for.

So I pulled together a more budget friendly version of the nursery in a different colorway for those looking for the over-the-top amazing look for a little less.

Instead of lattice on the ceiling you could do a lattice paper like this one from Thibaut:

And here is the rest of the room:

  1. In a small room this lemon paper all over would look incredible. In a larger room you could use it just on the crib wall and paint the rest of the room a medium blue.
  2. Love this Aerin fixture, we’ve used it a few times.
  3. Everyone has the Melissa & Doug giraffe, so I’m gonna use the cheetah instead!
  4. I’d trim white blackout drapes in this Schumacher tape.
  5. Funky yellow sconces to flank the crib.
  6. Blue gingham crib sheets make me weak in the knees.
  7. We used this brass canopy crib in a project that will be in book 2- it’s STUNNING.
  8. Ready made, pinch pleat back tab drapes for a SONG, y’all! Layer over woven woods for a super custom look.
  9. This dresser with tassel pulls is to die for.
  10. A yellow and blue vintage rug.
  11. One of my favorite floor lamps– the curve is just right.
  12. This handmade rocker is covered in Tibetan lamb fur.
  13. A cute marble and brass side table to bring some glam in.
  14. Love this new Serena & Lily pillow.
  15. In compact rooms (or rooms with small doorways) a rocker may be all that can fit! This one is sleek and modern and come with an ottoman.


    1. It’s de Gournay.

      Quote from another blog: “The custom hand-painted and sequin embellished de Gournay wallpaper was inspired “by the uplifting essence of California lemon trees” and includes window treatments painted with the same lemon trees.”

  1. I love this post! So fun seeing your interpretation. And I’m intrigued by those pinch pleat curtains you linked, thank you for finding those!

  2. Always impressed with how generous you are with your sources…and your design boards! You’re so talented. Great post

  3. This is a beautiful nursery. It has an almost magical quality to it – from the tassels on the dresser knobs to the the transparent crib to the way the curtains melt into the wallpaper. Beautiful work!

  4. Wow it’s look really awesome. You just did it nicely. It’s really inspiring nursery. I am just impress to see this. And i am going to do this at my children room. Hope so they will enjoy it. Thanks for the sharing such a interesting article.
