Do you guys remember our friend Stacie ofÂ Gingiber? She did a fabulous giveaway in December for a wonderful stripey reindeer pom pom stocking. Â We were all wowed by her charming illustrations and wonderful design flair, so it really shouldn’t be much of a surprise that her great style would extend to her little girl Violet’s room. Sweet simple touches that create an overall winning look. That’s our girl Gingiber!
I asked Stacie what was her inspiration for this very special room and here is her very sweet response:
When I found out I was having a little girl, I was terrified of picking a name, let alone designing a nursery for this little person that I did not even know yet! So, I waited until she was about a year old to fully commit to a color scheme and design plan. My daughter is such a lively, smart, and bright little girl I wanted to decorate a room for Violet that was truly a reflection of her sweet little self! Also, I wanted a room that she could grow into. I think it will suit her for several more years.
My decorating style is definitely bright and saturated. I love color and was giddy to use Martha Stewart’s Vintage Map paint color for the walls. Also, I am also a bit of a cheapskate. I made the curtains and crib-skirt, refinished the dresser. Next came the furniture. The crib was a family hand-me-down, and all of the white ornate furniture was mine from when I was a little girl! I wanted to play down the utter girlishness of the white furniture, so I filled the rest of the room with some handmade stuffed animals and art from mine and also artist’s Etsy shops.

Well done on that perfect Vintage Map wall color, lady and the punches of red are so delightful.
I think my favorite piece is this friendly brass octopus lamp. I mean really, it is just too wonderful for words. Stacie got it at a BARN SALE. I’m in love!
Oh and Stacie also redid this dandy dresser in candy apple red. Ingenius!
Oh and a basket full of soft toys sounds sooo lovely too! And this wonderful mirrored set of drawers is something that will grow with Miss Violet into her teen years quite beautifully!
I love this easy going way of hanging art on a clipboard, it’s so accessible and friendly. Oh, and let’s talk about that great mirror. How wonderful of your parents to hold on to it for you!
The sweet Jenny Lind crib was nicely updated with an adorable birdie crib skirt that welcomed Violet home from the hospital where she was born.
The same fabric it was used again for Violet’s birthday party chair too! LOVE that touch!
You should absolutely check out Violet’s full birthday party too. It’s so darn CUTE, you’ll be grinning ear to ear!
Thanks so much for sharing Violet’s wonderful room with us, Stacie. Don’t forget to stop by the adorableÂ Gingiber shop.
