Friday Room Reveal: Kelli’s Bright and Beautiful Nursery


It makes my day when readers thank me for helping them make their homes greener through this site. I feel like I’m doing my job of making green decorating accessible to any and everyone. It makes me even happier when I get to see photos of their fully-decorated spaces. Kelli Taylor of Purple Tree Photography, is one such reader, and I hope you’re as stoked about her gorgeous nursery as I am. In her words:

I just finished my baby nursery that I wanted to submit. I found the eco-friendly crib and changing table thanks to you!! Other green items in the room include: paint, crib mattress, FLOR rug, changing table pad, redone rocking chair, sheets & changing table sheet.

Now for a breakdown of her shopping list:

  • Crib and changing table (filled with cloth diapers): The CUB Netto deal that I found on your blog! YAY – THANK YOU! (Note: This deal is no longer available)
  • Paint: Sherwin-Williams Harmony Zero VOC paint
  • Mattress and changing table pad: Organic Naturepedic from buy buy baby
  • Crib sheet & changing table sheet: Made of organic cotton and found at Babies’R’Us on clearance. Killer deal! I think the brand was Summer.
  • Rocking chair: Given to my Mom for her baby shower for me (before photo shown) and she painted it for me (same kind of paint as the room). I had the pad made.
  • Rug: FLOR carpet tiles
  • The light bulbs of course!

I don’t know about you guys, but I am loving the light blue and orange color scheme! It feels like creamsicle on a hot summer day, and it is completely unisex. In fact, I was so impressed by the room that I didn’t even think to ask Kelli whether she has a little boy or a girl until I started writing this post! She did a great job of taking a few eco- AND budget-friendly pieces and turning them into a minimal, soothing space that any infant would be happy to grow up in. I’ve been looking at cribs from places like, and I’m so happy to see they have a ton of option to choose from!

Oh, and if you are as impressed by these photos as I am, that’s because Kelli is a professional photographer. You can see more of her awesome work at Purple Tree Photography.

      Awwww! Congratulations! I am so excited for you, and I know your little one will love his nursery even if he’s too young to understand what went into making it look so great. It was clearly a labor of love, and I’m so happy for you!

    I am so very proud of your gorgous outlook of Sutton\\\’s room. I know you had so much fun putting together this amazing nursery. It is not only adorable and beautiful in these photos; but warm and cozy in person too.

    I just stumbled upon this blog and would love to know who makes that crib. Any idea? Thanks!

    Hi there, I love your nursery design. I am doing one similar to it right now. Where did you get the art print above the crib (the one with all the people about town)? Thanks so much.
