Soft and Sweet Blush Pink Nursery Plans

This post may contain affiliate links that help to support and run this blog. All opinions and selections were made on my own.

Baby Girl is on her way and we could not be more excited to meet her. I’ve been feeling lots of kicks and flutters. It really makes it feel more real to feel her. I am quickly realizing that I am more than halfway through with my pregnancy. Its crazy to me that she will be here this summer. It is so exciting to look forward to the amazing changes coming our way.

I’ve been designing away at her nursery plans. I want a nursery that is soft and feminine, but also feels like it belongs with the rest of our home. I wanted a color pallet of white, blush and tiny pops of green. I took to Pinterest to help find some inspiration. Source

I really love the soft colors of this beautiful playroom. The room is mostly white with the soft blush colors pulled throughout. I love how they added the tiny little bits of green in the floral. This space represents the colors I want to achieve in the design perfectly!


This nursery is so wonderful in so many ways. I love how she uses layers of white tones in different textures to create interest. I also adore the antique rug she selected for the room. I want to use one in our nursery, something that can hide stains but is soft for crawling and playing.


This is a really sweet space. I really like how they kept the room very kid friendly but also made it feel sophisticated. In the first year, I will be spending a lot of time in the nursery and I’d like it to be a space that I can enjoy and relax in as well. I think this feeling is reflected in this nursery.

With my inspiration in hand, I started to compile my own nursery plans. I am registered with Amazon.com and Babies-R-Us. I looked through their options and registered for a lot of items needed (even the drapery, sheets, and accessories for the bookcase) It would be great to get some of the items from my loved ones. I kept the larger items really neutral and white and added color with some smaller accessories. The only large item that has color is that beautiful area rug. I already ordered it, and I love it. It has a lot of different pink tones and little pops of greens and yellows. It will really grow with our baby into childhood (and here’s to hoping the pattern hides some abuse too!)


Beaded Chandelier // Grey Crib // Rose Crib Sheet // Buffalo Plaid Crib Sheet // Crib Skirt // DIY Clothing Art // Pom Pom Sheer Drapery // Cream Glider // Pink Pom Pom Pillow // DIY Tree Stump // Florals  // Pink Area Rug // Wire Hamper // White Dresser // Wood Name Art // Rose Changing Pad // Bookcase // Love Grows Here Art // Wooden Toy // Plush Unicorn // Pom Pom Basket // DIY Bow Holder // DIY Book Holder

So, what do you think? I am so excited to get going with this project! We have already ordered a few items like the crib, rug and chandelier. My mom purchased the cream glider for us from my babies-R-Us registry (thank you!!) Additionally, we will have a few DIY projects to tackle.

  • Add Shiplap to Walls
  • Make DIY Hair Bow Holder
  • Make Tree Stump Side Table
  • Change Out Chandelier
  • Make Book Holder

I am really looking forward to seeing how it all turns out! Be sure to check into Instagram to see progress updates!

Until Next Time,


E-Design Services

Hi There!

Today I am excited to share a new service I am kicking off here on Actually Ashley Blog! With our big move to Ohio just around the corner, I am “retiring” from my full time job as an Interior Designer here in Washington, DC and transitioning to working Part-Time from our new home. I am excited to have enough free time to dedicate to beginning a new E-Design Service! I have received so many inquires about designing privately for you all and I am so excited that the timing is finally right to do so! See below for all of the details:Actually-Asshley-E-Design

What exactly is E-Design?
E-Design is a digital interior decorating service for you to get a custom designed space for your home regardless of your location or budget. With years of experience in the design industry, Actually Ashley will decorate your room, or entire home, without having to retain a traditional full-service interior designer. E-Design is a do-it-yourself decorating solution that provides you with design boards and source lists to create a professionally decorated space that you can buy and install at your own pace. You provide us with your room measurements, before photos, & budget and we will custom design your personal digital plan and source list that fits your needs, style, and space.

What will my E-Design Package Include?

  • Digital Consultation: Upon reaching out, Actually Ashley will ask you to fill out a quick and easy questionnaire to get a better idea of your wants, needs and style. Once we establish a design direction and your budget we will begin designing your space!
  • Design Boards: Do you have a hard time envisioning what a fully designed room might look like? Our E-Design Boards will help you see the space by showing you images of all furniture, wallpaper, art and other decor. These boards will show you how the different design components come together to create a fully decorated space.
  • Space Planning: After you provide measurements of your room, Actually Ashley will provide a furniture layout of your space drawn to scale. Each item in your Design Board will coordinate to your space plan and show you how to arrange your new furniture in the room.
  • Revisions: Your E-Design Package includes one revision round to provide solutions to an concerns after the initial designs are provided.
  • Source List: We will provide you with the designs and you do the rest! After creating your e-design boards and space plans- we will provide an organized shopping list with easy links for online retailers for you to purchase every item in the design. You can purchase all at once, or at your own pace to create the room of your dreams!
