Designing a nursery with a macaron theme is a fun way to add pops of color to your little ones nursery in a sweet way! Look below for ways to incorporate macarons into your little ones nursery.

Consider using soft shades like blush pink, mint green, lavender, baby blue, and pale yellow as your main color palette.   Furniture: Opt for furniture in neutral tones like white or light wood to complement the pastel colors of the macarons. This light wood dresser would look great, and is also a great option for if you decide to switch to a different theme as your little one grows.   Accent Pieces: Scatter plush macaron pillows or stuffed toys around the room for a playful touch. You could also incorporate macaron-shaped lamps, mobiles, or wall hooks for added charm.   Textiles: Choose curtains, rugs, and upholstery in coordinating pastel hues to enhance the overall theme. Look for fabrics with subtle texture or pattern to add visual interest. These pastel pink blackout curtains are cute and will help to darken your nursery to help your little one sleep! Storage: Utilize decorative baskets or bins in pastel colors to keep toys, books, and other essentials organized. These woven pastel bins are sturdy, and the pastel colors would go great with a macaron theme.   Bedding: Lindsay Ann Artistry has your back with macaron crib sheets and a macaron changing pad cover!                     Wall Art: Hang framed artwork featuring macarons or French patisserie scenes to add a sophisticated touch to the space. Consider DIY projects like a macaron garland or shadow box display filled with miniature macaron trinkets.   Accent Wall: If you're feeling adventurous, consider painting one wall in a soft ombre effect, transitioning between different pastel shades inspired by macarons.   Personal Touches: Add personalized elements like a name plaque above the crib or a custom-made wall decal featuring your baby's name alongside adorable macaron illustrations. Remember to keep safety in mind when decorating the nursery, especially with regards to furniture placement, crib safety, and the materials used in decor items. With a little creativity and attention to detail, you can create a charming macaron-themed nursery that both you and your little one will love!
Pink 'Pulitzer' Roses Wedding Suite

Pink 'Pulitzer' Roses Wedding Suite

on Mar 27, 2016
This design I did ended up slightly 'Pulitzer-esque.' A similar pink watercolor rose wedding invitation design was brought to me to 'sort of' mimic. Below you can see a few inspiration photos to pull the look together. For those of you who might not know, Lilly Pulitzer is most popular for her line of brightly colored *typically watercolor inspired* 'resort-ware' clothing. Her story is quite interesting. In short, she eloped in 1950. Her and her husband settled in Palm Beach, Florida. They owned an orange grove so she started a juice stand, but her clothes would always get stained. She decided to make herself some brightly patterned dresses to mask the stains. Her clients fell in love with her dresses and soon she was selling more clothes than juice and her fashion business blossomed quickly! Her clothing was seen being worn by Jaqueline Kennedy in Life magazine and many other elite family members in the 1960s-1980s!          Sources: Style Me Pretty, Tumblr, 100 Layer Cake, Hey Wedding Lady   I can relate to this sort of 'unplanned' idea to starting a business. When I was planning my wedding, I was a DIY bride. Between supporting myself through college with a slew of jobs that could equate to almost a full-time job and planning a wedding my last year in college, I was DIY-ing my wedding together. It was ironically my escape from my hectic schedule. I got a thrill when I slowly saw everything fit together like an art puzzle. So I was quite surprised and deflated in June when I finished school and got married in the same month. Everything ended so suddenly; I didn't know what to do with my life! Soon a few of my friends also got married, and I began getting calls about planning weddings! How much did it cost? How did I pull everything together? How did I organize? How did I know when to do what? Where did I get my invitations? ...When they learned that I did almost everything on my own, they asked if they could get my help! I was newly married and unemployed...not to mention baying back my college loans were just around the corner. Invitations seemed to be the lowest financial investment for me. I began designing their invitations with the knowledge I learned in my Graphic Design class in college. After designing a few friends' invites...it didn't take long before I was doing it for local people and soon Etsy shoppers. I didn't seek out this opportunity in paper goods. It sort of just fell in my lap, and I honestly wouldn't trade my venture for anything else to date!
