winniewild18When Kendra Henderson welcomed her youngest child, Winnie Wilde, to the family, she combined her love of bold type and graphics (she’s a designer by trade) with vintage-style furniture to create a nursery that any little girl would be lucky to call home. “I wanted Winnie’s room to have a grown-up feel with a bit of childhood whimsy thrown in,” she explains. From the big (that dresser!) to the little (those wall dots!), here’s how she made it happen.winniewild01Picture perfect
“I love the emotion it portrays about childhood and the sweet nature that sisters share.”


Used and reused
“My husband found [the green dresser] at a local antique store, and we knew we had to have it. It was in [my son] Baylor’s nursery, too, and it feels special to be pulling fresh white snapsuits from the same drawer again four years later.”Connect the dots
“The polka dots on the wall were a last-minute addition that adds so much personality to the room.” winniewild14Three cheers for tiers
“The three-tier tower next to the changing pad has proven itself time and time again. It holds virtually everything in one spot, and I’m constantly adding to the stash.”  winniewild13Made with love
“The large wooden sign was truly a labor of love and will forever live in our home. I was very pregnant when I painted this sign, and I often remember feeling Winnie kick while I was doubled over with black paint and a tiny little brush trying to make sure everything was just right.” (Here’s the tutorial on how she created this statement sign.)  winniewild05Girl power
“Winnie is our third baby, but [this was] the first time we found out the gender before the baby was born. It was really fun to do a nursery that was gender-specific. The pink rug was really a ‘because I can’ purchase and ended up inspiring the rest of the nursery.” winniewild02Mom’s talent doesn’t stop at nursery design—she’s also the creator of a pretty rad assortment of kids’ apparel, baby shower goodies, art prints and more.
