Light, airy and full of personal touches

Peyton’s Nursery

When Merrick began to design her daughter’s nursery she knew she wanted to keep it as light, airy and full of personal touches as possible. Drawing inspiration from magazines and Pinterest, as well as her own background in interior design, Merrick used everyday items to put together a one-of-a-kind space for Peyton. Her advice? Look for great finds at yard sales and on Craigslist and creatively update them to suit your style.

Peyton’s sweet nursery is chock full of inexpensive DIY elements that anyone can duplicate. However, if DIY isn’t your thing (or time isn’t on your side!), Merrick is available for design consultations and you can contact her at merrickdesigns@gmail.com or visit her website at www.merrickdesigns.com.  Also, look for a tutorial from Merrick on Orlando Moms Blog!

Peyton’s toy box was customized by adding crown moulding and chalkboard paint. She also made the top into a padded seat.

These sweet fabric blocks (with noise-makers inside!) and happy bird were made by Merrick with scrap fabric that she used elsewhere in the nursery.
