Violet's nursery

Just a few more finishing touches, and little Violet's nursery is finished! I love the final look of the room, and it turned out pretty close to my original ideas.
I was hoping for a space for a little girl to feel like a little girl, a place she can grow into and hopefully let her imagination run wild. I wanted a vintage feel but with some fresh pops of colour to keep it lively. I also loved the idea of incorporating a woodland vibe, so there are little forest friends and flowers throughout the room.
