May27 Veda and Colors 2014

Local Dallas florist Brianne decorated the most tasteful and colorful nursery for her little girl Veda. Here she is:

“We knew that we wanted to be surprised by the gender of our baby which meant  keeping the design for the baby’s room gender neutral. The colors in the painting that is hung above the crib provided the color palette throughout the room. The overall feel of the space is modern with an eclectic twist.
The dresser was found at a local vintage shop and the concrete changing table was made by my husband. In the future the table will be transformed into a toy and book shelf.”
