This bedroom has undergone many changes over the years – a glorious dump in a guest room and then an office. But now, this is the most important transformation in the nursery of our little girl. And of course, it's my favorite. This space was so much fun to design and collect and I did it with the help of very good little shops. Before presenting the visit, let's briefly recall where we started. In fact, I announced the sex of baby E with the reason for daycare, which looked like this …
And my plan has barely departed from the mood chart of origin. I missed that beautiful rug – that is the life of the Etsy – but apart from that, almost everything is the same. Here's how everything happened …
Painting was the first thing we tackled. It was originally a different shade of white but I wanted something a little softer. Fortunately we had leftovers Benjamin Moore just white of our renovation on the ground floor, which we used for the upper part of the room (and remember, this is one of my most used / recommended white paints!). Then, after using a laser level and tape the entire piece (I also speak of trim and doors), we painted the entire lower part of a pale pink color. I wanted the room to look like it was soaked in color – so not just the walls. I think this choice made a huge difference in this small space – a bold choice that has paid off!
After testing 4 different paintings (and got your comments on the stories, thanks for the help!), We chose Odessa Pink by Benjamin Moore. I'm completely in love with this color – it's softened and more modern, which gives me a pink hue. Not quite in the world of terracotta, but in that direction. This is exactly what I imagined and I was beautiful! PS – if you're pregnant like me and want to paint a bit, consider using the Natura Line – the greenest paint option.
In the corner of the window, we placed a new rocking chair next to our book stand. I would have liked to keep Jack's rocking chair, but the scale was just wrong for this small room. Seriously, we have the smallest room sizes in this house! So, for the feel of freedom sensation to be improved, I chose a much lighter article, with a more negative space around the legs and a little smaller. It's still comfortable and I consider a lot more time spent in this corner sucking and cuddling with a book.
Like most nurseries, we have wood Flisat wall storage units but I returned the bottom one to serve as a shelf, then bar suspension. I love winking at my Nana, Dorothy Lynne, whom we see with me as a little girl, then the first hanging dress was knitted by my great grandmother, Ina Kristina . I can not wait to see a little girl in some of the pieces I wore!
I feel lucky when I found this table really tiny at Home Sense. The terrazzo top complimented the space so well and the shape and size were perfect for this area. I just have enough space to store necessities during breastfeeding, etc., but for the moment, some nice additions like the woven bowl I had in an adorable Canmore boutique and a vase terracotta of Aunt Janna's many travels.
On the other side of the room, I capitalized on the very small wall between the door and the closet. A lovely friend Eli from Life in loop I've offered these beautiful wall hooks and magnetic photo frame. I absolutely love them together here with my little one Rainbow fiber wall hanging of the woolly fabric – a small store that has an adorable nursery decor in hand. She can make custom color combinations but even the mixes she's listed are amazing. Love supporting talented ladies who make beautiful products.
On the other side of the room is the change station / dresser. I always have a lot of questions about it special dresser and, ladies and gentlemen, it is from Ikea! Yes, leather handles included. It's a lot smaller than I had for Jack, but with just enough room for new woven diaper basketI am a happy camper. All diapers and necessities are in the two upper drawers and then the clothes below.
A note on this beautiful fake tree I caught it at Wayfair – it's an excellent article that is beautiful in person. I've removed some of the fake olives (which is easy to do) just to have a better balance but I love them and I want to take another one for our living room.
Above, I hung two shelves (always those of the talented Eli) that are fixed in the hooks with the detail of the white ankle. Just so you know, ankles come in so many colors – again, perfect for a kids room! It turns out that the shelves were also made in this beautiful pine wood, soft and subtle, as the dresser.
I've bought a few trinkets over the last few months and, although I like to change the shelves' style every now and then, I feel that it will stay for a while. I relied a lot on the piece of my personalized painting of Rachel Wadlow, who looks perfect by leaning here. If you remember my concept article, I sent Rachel a picture of me, pregnant, and she created this piece from that picture. So special for me!
And then, I proudly did my first embroidery DIY with this little rainbow. It's far from perfect (do not look back, ok ?!) But I love it.
The right impression was a very simple process. I found a printable version online, I sent it to Posterjack and they took it from there – carpet, framing and sending it directly to me. It could not be easier !! They make the process of printing online a kids game!
And finally, the area of the nursery. I can not tell you how much you love this part of the room. Even if the baby bed he himself has been used for over 2 years by my nice boy, he feels totally new in this space. Above we hung a very special piece – a custom duvet from Louise Gray. I followed his work on Instagram well before I started thinking about baby # 2 and I immediately knew that I had to integrate it one way or another when the day has finally come to decorate a space. The best part, they personalized the back, embroidering his name in the lower corner. Now, I can not show it to you at the moment, but once my daughter is there, I will absolutely flood you with pictures of this side because it is really beautiful and special.
Louise Gray also conveniently wooden hangers which perfectly match the size. And you can also choose the color of your material. I mean, how much it looks perfect hanging over the cradle of our precious daughter.
And no crib vignette would be complete without a cell phone. Tying once again to all the soft woods of space, I chose the mini mobile nature of Bellabloom kids. I've made a color – white – and the smallest size that works so perfectly here. It's so simple but so striking. Love! And I should also mention that the Bellabloom Kids team was so nice to me, sending a sweet note, tea and speeding the article. It made my day!
I can not forget my new favorite Ceiling lamp by Mitzi! Originally, I bought this for my friend Nicole Ashley 'I fell in love with him too and I had to have him here. The brass plate and the dome shape are beautiful.
There you go! The room of our sweet little girl is revealed from top to bottom! What do you think ?! I'm so excited to bring her into this space and create as many memories as we did with Jack. He already calls this the room of his baby sister (pronounced baby sir for some reason lol) and likes to be here with me. It fills my heart with joy.
Many thanks to all the stores that boarded this room and took the time to make me love this baby!
