Yay, I FINALLY got this shot! I planned to do this when she was 6 months old…but now she’s almost 9 months. There were two factors that determined the direction I went with her nursery. 1. We are planning to move (within Atlanta) in the next 6-12 months and 2. I had these gorgeous curtains from my old guest room that I wanted to use. I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on custom draperies, light fixtures and furniture and then move!
Here are the details:
Crib – This was Nola’s old crib and I purchased it through an interior designer years ago. But this one from Restoration Hardware is a very close match.
Crib Canopy – I’m obsessed with bed canopies and I wanted to add something soft with height above the crib. I found a gorgeous crib canopy from Restoration Hardware and you can check it out here. If you scroll down, you can see the options for the sheer draperies to go with it.
Mobile – I wanted something simple and soft and I found these sweet little elephants at Restoration Hardware. They have a ton of options to choose from at super reasonable prices too. If you are a member you can get one for $48. You can shop my exact one here.
Crib Skirt – I bought a matching bumper to go with the skirt, but it’s currently off of the bed until she is a few months older. Again, I both both of them from Restoration Hardware here.
Pillows – I love gorgeous monograms and no nursery is complete until there is a monogram somewhere! So, I had this one done through Leontine Linens. If you need a rep, I work with Jenny Johnson and here is her email firstname.lastname@example.org. She also can help you with gorgeous bedding, hand towels, napkins, etc. The fuzzy pillow I have on my rocker is so comfy and soft. It has migrated from my guest bedroom, to my photography studio, to the playroom and now the nursery.
Nursery Art – This is definitely one of my favorite parts of the nursery. I found the cutest little prints on etsy for $9.39/per print and then had them custom framed. I like creating height and using all of the wall space and I love how it draws your eye up. I also wanted to keep it clean and not busy. Once I picked out the white mat and the white frame I was obsessed. Plus, each print was under $10. If you use Framebridge to frame it, then it will be $59 for the frame. So, for the art and the custom frame it’s $69…pretty sweet deal if you ask me! Make sure you check out the etsy shop because she has great art for boys rooms too. I purchased the 5×7 size, but she has different sizes and can do custom too!
The photographs hanging above the changing table are from her newborn session and I simply love staring at them!
Dresser/Changing Table – I didn’t want to buy an expensive dresser and then move and need something in a different size. SO, I purchased this white one from IKEA and it’s been perfect. I changed the hardware out and it completely transformed it. I needed a changing table topper and found a great match at Restoration, you can see it here.
Stuffed Animals – I love the size of the giraffe and the bunny, my older kids love coming in and wrestling with them, ha. The bunny was purchased at Pottery Barn last year and they don’t have it anymore, but I found a similar one on Amazon! The felt animals hanging between the windows were purchased from Anthropologie last year. They still have them, but they have tweaked the design a bit. Target also has cute options, check this unicorn out! Serena and Lily has THE cutest elephant and the exact Ram I have.
Lighting – I have used this floor lamp in all 3 of the girls nurseries. It has the best dimmer on it, so it’s perfect to put by your rocker. I also really love the white lamp on the dresser…whimsical but still white so it doesn’t distract from the photographs. Lighting can be super expensive, but I found great little chandelier from Pottery Barn Kids for under $300.
Rocker – This rocker was purchased several years ago when I had my oldest and it has been the best rocker. If spit up gets on the chair, you can take off the slipcover and wash it. So convenient!
Side Table – I love how cute this little table is. It’s the perfect size to set a bottle on and it’s whimsical looking, but still white! Again, I wanted it to feel like a nursery, but not super busy with lots of different colors everywhere.
