In just three days, the interior designers achieved a dreamy, blush-themed nursery that any baby girl would be lucky to have. Even Sofia herself said she'd sleep there if she could!

The muted blush theme followed through from the curtains (that has a valence board installed to cover the curtain fixtures) down to the furniture. So the room won't look too pink, Cyndi chose white wallpaper with a subtle chevron print, and for the area behind the canopy, one with a custom leaf print.

You'll find other splashes of pink on the shelves and frames above Zoe's dresser, and they match the paint on the walls perfectly!

The new nursing area is for sure one of the highlights of the revamped room. Just like Sofia, we're in love with the padded walls and the way the bench doubles as extra storage!
