Baby Isabella’s nursery is a sonnet in pink and ivory. There is nothing in this nursery that is overdone or out of place and this is one of the reasons we love it. In this installment of Melissa Caporino’s rainbow baby girl Isabella’s Aurora nursery, we talk to mom Melissa herself and this opening sentence from her pretty much sums up everything about this lovely little nursery.
“I dreamed about this nursery forever and was so excited when we found out our baby girl was on the way. I always wanted cream and pinks and the Aurora évolur Collection helped me make my dream nursery complete. Isabella is our rainbow baby, which is a baby born after a loss. We lost her sibling during my second trimester 2 years ago.“
What was your inspiration for the nursery design and décor?
I love neutrals and light pinks so I wanted to design my nursery with those ideas. I found a bedding set at Caden lane (on crib rail) that used my intended colors so I went with that.
What drew you to évolur over other nursery brands?
The crib was beautiful, feminine and delicate, fit for a princess.
Did the room pose any design challenges.
It’s small so I wanted it to look pretty and not overly cluttered.
Did you and your spouse agree on style, or did you blend styles and how?
Yes, my husband let me be the designer.
What does this color scheme mean to you?
Princess, girly, feminine.
What accessories did you choose and why?
Round pink and cream rug from Pottery Barn kids fit perfectly in the small room. Bedding by Caden Lane. I chose Antique cream wood shelves from homegoods. Rustic wood sweetheart frame from Pink Bungalow boutique in Ridgewood NJ because they all tied into the pink and cream theme.
What is your favorite piece or design element in the nursery?
The crib and rug.
Have you thought of how you will use the nursery pieces down the road and can you tell us?
The crib converts into an adult full size bed and the dresser can be used for years to come.
What one word comes to mind when you step into the nursery?
Melissa, we wish you every joy that this lifetime has to offer and look forward to watching baby Isabella grow.
