The Nursery

27 Feb

Most people who know me know decorating’s my thing. & it’s not to say that boys are boring or there’s not as much variety when it comes to putting together a nursery for a baby boy- but let’s be honest here; you don’t get much more girly than me. When I found out baby number 3 was a girl, let’s just say I was super excited to finally be able to design a nursery that was 100% girly girl.

 

I picked out the crib bedding first, and once I had found the perfect one I designed the decor around that. I had picked out this particular set even before I knew if she was a girl or a boy because hey, you have to be prepared. (Or maybe it was wishful thinking, who knows!)

 

I also designed the nursery in a way that she can grow into it. It’s definitely not babyish, but it has a soft color palette. Financially (& aesthetically) I don’t see the point in creating nursery’s that have themes that can’t grow with a child. If you have to change the decor in a short year or 2 it just seems like a waste of money and work and I love that theoretically she will be able to be happy with the way this room looks into her teens.

This crib set is a peachy/pink color. I never would have thought I’d have gone with a peach but it totally works with what I had in mind for the look of the nursery.

I love how subtle the stenciling is. This is the first time I’ve ever attempted to stencil and I absolutely love the way it turned out!

Did you know these floral letters sell for upwards of $100+ on Etsy? Crazy! I made this one for under $30.

I bought this mirror from an antique store. I just added a touch of pink and shimmer paint to it.

This dresser used to be in my sons room. It was that icky orangy-wood color (although it worked in his room, I wanted something more neutral for the baby’s.) I had it spray painted a glossy white and I changed out the handles as well.

I bought these super cute prints from Etsy. I printed them out and went with a black and gold frame to really make them pop on the wall.

I had initially only bought 3 prints, and once I realized that wasn’t going to work I found that that the only other peach print left in the Etsy shop was a design I wasn’t interested in. Luckily I emailed the owner and she created the peach heart print for me, so shout out to SavvySilverArt!

This table was also the orangy-wood color. I chose different handles for this because I wasn’t sure if the dresser handles would be too big and bulky for such a small piece. (& yes- I did bling out the fan. They just don’t sell girly fans, what could I do?!)
