Julie and Leo Fila were excited to plan a neutral baby nursery for their newborn, Thomas. They enlisted the assistance of the talented owners of Once Upon a Time in Mountain Brook Alabama, Linda Flaherty and Sarah Bailey.  The Fila's opted for a neutral palette of beige and soft aqua with a crisp white crib.

The bedding she chose is New Arrivals' Picket Fence Collection, a perfect set for a neutral nursery.  A charming suzani pattern in soft colors works perfectly in a unisex nursery.  Traditional tailored crib skirt is accented with high pleats.  Buff walls make the white nursery furniture pop!  Custom cornice boards on the windows finish off this beautiful room and bring a traditional feel to the room!  


Using a projected image as a guide, Julie hand painted the adorable tree on the wall, and accented it with small molded shelves on the branches.  A second hand dresser was repainted white and also serves as a changing table, which saves space in the room.  Leo designed and built the wall mounted bookshelf within easy reach of the rocker.  



Lots of lighting creates a soft ambiance and gives the nursery a natural glow!

Thank you to Once Upon a Time for sharing this darling nursery with us!
