I’m excited to finally share our nursery with you today. This nursery is kind of a mishmash of all of the things I love! I wanted a little industrial (light fixture and stool), a little modern (crib and Eames style chair), a little comfort (glider, rug, blankets, clouds), a few practical items (dresser, hooks, book shelves) and I wanted it to be just a bit whimsical (sunshine and cloud art, tassel mobile from Splendid Supply Co. cloud garland).
This little corner is what we are calling the “big brother reading nook” and B loves it!
We love this room. It is a bright and beautiful space with many items that inspire us and we hope will inspire this little babe who could arrive any day now. We filled his shelves with books Bodhi used to love, some new items and lots of color!
While I really love this yellow striped sheet, I have to admit that I bought three different sheets for the room. I really like all three and they completely change the look and feel of the crib and even the room. One sheet I chose was just $9.99 and is a super soft T-shirt material. Love it! I’m going to try to get a post up in the coming days showing all three. I took the photos already. :)
This cloud garland is probably my favorite decor item in the room. I love these knit fluffy little clouds. I will not be keeping them on the crib once the baby sleeps in it though, so I will be moving them somewhere else for safety.
And in some ways, I feel like the room doesn’t look super coordinated, but I’m still very happy with it. When I walk in the room, I instantly feel relaxed. It’s clean, neat, bright, inspiring and has just the right amount of childish sweetness.
I originally had a huge gallery wall planned above the changing pad area. I decided to scale it down and really like the simple clean result.
Admittedly, this wooden camera was a bit of a splurge. I knew I wanted it in our next nursery since before this little man even existed. It’s tiny. It doesn’t do anything special, but I love it.
You may remember that our nursery glider was a total steal on Craigslist. Unfortunately, it doesn’t fit my body all that well so we ended up buying a second one that is much smaller and more comfortable for me. We kept the DwellStudio Glider though. It fits my husband perfect. We have the second glider in our master bedroom for now and may sell one or the other once we get past the up all night phase. :)
This little basket is one of my favorite details. I was always searching for little things with Bodhi because I stuck them all in his drawers. I decided that a basket with “accessories” was a good solution.
I love sharing a few details, so check out his little shoe collection!
And diapers! They are so cute until you’re up for the fifth time in the middle of the night cleaning up a blow-out. Am I right or am I right?
This shelf actually needs to be completely reworked in terms of styling, but I wanted to be done so I used things we already had. The “You’re getting very sleepy” print is actually from Bodhi’s nursery. Hoping to find things I love over time.
Well, that’s a wrap! Feel free to check out Bodhi’s nursery to see how our style has changed. I think Bodhi’s current bedroom and the nursery definitely have similar styles and they are the styles I love most. Clean, fresh, simple design. What do you think?
Paint color: Valspar Lake Breeze
Painting: Certapro Painters of the Northwest Metro. Steve and Amy were fantastic to work with!
Eames style rocking chair—I actually purchased one on Amazon but can’t find the link.
Star stickers on ceiling. I don’t love these in our room and may take them down, but they have looked great in other people’s rooms.
Roman shades were a Pottery Barn-esque DIY using inexpensive blackout roman shades and ribbon.
Metal spheres from Home Goods. I painted an orange one yellow, but the other two colors are available at most Home Goods stores now.
