So today I am going to finish up accessorizing the room by showing you a few fun ways you can "Embellish" your space in simple and inexpensive ways! Stay tuned next week for the final reveal!

WORK OF ART, POUR UNE PETITE FILLE

NESTING THE NURSERY, POUR UNE PETITE FILLE {PHASE III}

By far, my most favorite part of designing a room would be shopping for the furniture, art and accessories that go into that space! This is when it all starts coming together! These are the items I have bought, accumulated, or made so far;

CONCEPTUAL CONCEPT, POUR UNE PETITE FILLE

NESTING THE NURSERY, POUR UNE PETITE FILLE (PHASE II continued)
{CONCEPT & LAYOUT}

CONCEPTUAL CONCEPT 

Looks like I may have put my "Cart Before the Horse." After reviewing my past post on Nesting the Nursery, I notice I may have gotten a bit ahead of myself. Last week I gave you tips on how to accessorize the room and showed you a DIY project I was working on with my Fantastic Fandelier. I was so excited about that project that I may have jumped ahead a little bit. For those of you who are following this blog and using these steps to help you transform your Nursery or space in your home, I want to give you the proper steps to follow in order to achieve the look you want! 

With that being said....first things first, or third thing second....anywhoo.
 
THE CONCEPT BOARD:
 
Once you have followed the steps in Nesting the Nursery, Pour Une Petite Fille (phase I); achieving your paint colors for the room and an overall theme, the next item of business is creating a concept board to help you carry out that vision! There is a great site out there that helps you create an online concept board. I am sure some of you have noticed fellow bloggers and designers using it. Well today I am going to share that secret with you. (I am either going to make friends, or lose them here!) It is called Olioboard! Olioboard allows you to create online customized concept boards for your spaces!! I used their site to help me create my custom concept board for my nursery. (Back in the day, these items were cut out by hand and glued to an actual board! Ha Ha, have to keep up with the times if you want to stay relevant!!)

A FANTASTIC FANDELIER, POUR UNE PETITE FILLE


NESTING THE NURSERY, POUR UNE PETITE FILLE (PHASE II)
{DECOR AND ACCESSORIES}
 
A FANTASTIC FANDELIER
 
Accessorizing your little one's nursery is the best time to help your theme come to life! Some examples of items you can use to tie your theme together are bedding, wall art, curtains, rugs, pillows, and lighting fixtures. All of these can help pull a room together to give it a harmonious look. The nice part about accessories is they can be replaced easily later on without doing any major work to the room. Remember my son's "Transported" Little Boys Room. This is the exact method I used!

Creating your own accessories is a great way to add customization to your little one's space! If you are not super crafty, but would like to add something unique and special, your local craft stores carry unfinished tables, toy chests, boxes, shelves, frames, and other items that you can paint to match your theme. This is a fun and inexpensive way to add your own personal touch!
 
I have a few different ways that I am adding personal touches to my Little Girls Room. Today I want to share with you a Fantastic Fandelier I made.
