Our Baby Girl's Nursery

I'm so excited to share our little girl's room. It's been a labor of love that I started working on not long after we found out we were expecting a baby girl. It's one of those projects that I envisioned in my head but wasn't sure if it would quite come to fruition but I'm loving this happy little space and can't wait to spend time with our daughter in here. 

It's been so fun working on little odds and ends in this room with Stephen. Coming home to him putting together the crib or opening a box filled with a million pieces that looked more like a jigsaw puzzle than a piece of furniture are little memories of this pregnancy I will always remember. 
One of my favorite details of the room is this watercolor portrait of Sophie. I found an artist on Etsy and she absolutely captured the perfect painting for the room. We hung it above this little dresser console (yes, assembly is definitely required) and I opted to change out the solid pulls for these precious bows. 

I picked up the stool from Home Goods on a random visit as the cushion was removable, which made it perfect to recover in fabric to match the treatments.
My mom pulled out this sterling silver rattle from when I was a little girl. It has my name engraved on one side and I can't wait to add our little girl's name to it as well. 
One quick and easy project that I did was mount this command strip shelf to the wall to hold the monitor. There's an outlet that is behind the treatments so it was perfect to both give a great vantage view of the crib and hide the cord all at the same time. 
A big part of designing the nursery stemmed from the fact that we had a fuchsia couch from Society Social that we were going to put in the room. It is very bright so I wanted everything else to be on the neutral side and then find a window treatment that tied everything together. It took me awhile to find a fabric for the treatments but I love how it pulled all of the colors of the room together!
One of the things I love about this room is that I've been able to repurpose a lot of furniture. This nightstand was in my mom's room when she was a little girl. She updated it a few years ago and the white and gold finishings ended up matching perfectly. 
One of my best friends from college painted this beautiful abstract canvas to go above the crib. She is incredibly talented and I loved seeing her vision come to life. She took a sample of our window treatment and created the perfect piece to bring everything together. 
The dresser was one of the first things to go into the nursery. It was mine from high school, moved to several different apartments with me, and ended up in our master bedroom for the first couple of years. We decided it would be perfect in the nursery and got a new dresser for our room. I changed out the handles to these lucite pulls and it's amazing how much it updated a 15 year-old piece of furniture. 

Instead of having a changing table, we added the LelloBaby acrylic topper and a changing pad and cover. I liked this option because it gives us the changing table space but we can keep the dresser as she grows out of needing a changing area. 

Above the dresser is a scalloped mirror that I found years ago -and believe it or not, it’s from Home Goods! It’s been another piece that’s traveled with me. My grandmother purchased it for me when I moved to my first apartment out of college and it’s been around ever since! Ballard has a similar one that is beautiful as well. 
Some pieces I purchased on a whim in hopes they would work. The Kate Spade lamps on the dresser I found at Home Goods before Thanksgiving and I hoped they would end up working. I'm so glad I didn't leave them behind because I love them. 
I've already enjoyed the glider in the nursery. We tackled a lot of the big things early on but I feel like I'm constantly in and out of her room working on organization, putting away sweet gifts from our showers, and trying to get all of her laundry done. I take lots of breaks these days and absolutely love spending time in the glider - Sophie does too! She loves getting rocked and hanging out with her mama. 
I can't believe we are in the final days before baby girl is here! I used to sit in this room before I was pregnant and dream about the baby who would hopefully one day be in this space and now we are so close to meeting our daughter. These are the days.
