Phew! This post has been a long time coming. If you remember, I wanted to work on the nursery in correlation with the One Room Challenge, but really wasn’t able to. We waited to get her nursery done until the last minute and my husband cranked it out in about two weeks so there was no way I could really participate. We kicked it into major high gear!
I had so much fun piecing the nursery together. It is very simple, but airy and bright which I love. It is my favorite room to be in! I worked with Carousel Designs on designing her bedding and curtains and cannot say enough amazing things about the look, quality and their customer service.
Ok, so let us start from the top: I’m usually not a pink person but for some reason wanted her room to be a very pale pink. I found the perfect color by Glidden called Frosty Peach Ribbon. It is such a soft blush and really works perfectly in the room. It’s not over-powering and gives the room the perfect amount of pink color.
I wanted her bedding to have floral aspects BUT not be too flowery. After searching and searching I couldn’t find anything that I really fell in love with. I saw that a few bloggers had used Carousel Designs and designed their own bedding. I went on their site and saw a few material prints that I loved and started playing with the prints. You can basically customize EVERYTHING! It was so easy to use and at the end of it all they give you a sample look at what your nursery would look like with your designed pieces. I picked the materials that I liked and they sent them to me in the mail to make sure I liked the look of them. They were even more beautiful in person and great quality. I went with the Pink Hawaiian Floral, White and Gray Cloud Classic Herringbone and the Pink and Gold Bow Ties (they only have the light mint version now). I played with all of the patterns to create a look that was fresh and feminine. I LOVE the way her bedding and curtains came out!
The baby’s room is unfortunately the most oddly shaped in the house and also the smallest so we couldn’t fill it with anything big or bulky. We picked the Hemnes 3 Drawer Chest from Ikea. It fits perfectly in the crevice of the wall. I wanted to find a crib that had a vintage feel; I feel in love with the DaVinci Jenny Lind Crib. It is so pretty and dainty and fits the style I was going for not to mention it’s a killer price and gets amazing reviews! We found the glider at Buy Buy Baby; for some reason, it isn’t on their website. It is called the Felicia Glider. It is SO comfortable and reclines which is awesome for those middle of the night feedings!
Decor wise I kept it very simple. The mirror is from Pottery Barn Kids (they don’t seem to sell it anymore) as soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it for her room. It is antique wood which I loved because it brought in some wood elements to the room. For prints for the wall I of course went to Hobby Lobby and bought the two girl signs. They are super cute and add some warmth with their wood elements too. The wooden lattice and boxwood wreath I already had here. I had purchased them from Target and never used them. I felt the wooden lattice was too plain on its own so I had my husband hammer a hole into it and hang the small boxwood wreath. The carpet is also from Target; it’s the Safavieh brand, such great quality and so soft! I could’ve added more decor but I just really love the soft and airy feel of the room as is. I have a couple of prints that I may add to the wall – but that is it.
There we have it, our baby’s nursery! I can’t wait to see her grow up in this space and will probably be very sad when she decides she doesn’t like it anymore and wants to decorate her room with whatever she likes when she gets older.
