I figured I’d better go ahead and put this post out in case our little girl shows before her July 5th due date. Up until now, it’s been a little crazy wrapping up the house renovations and organization, but I finally feel like our nest is ready for our new addition.. all her little outfits, swaddles, and blankets have been washed, and our hospital bags are by the door.
For the nursery design, we enlisted the help of my friend Angeline Guido Hall, who presented us with this general mood board four months ago, after discussing what I had in mind.
We decided to go with a pale peachy pink and aqua color scheme. For the walls, we kept it neutral with one of my favorite paint colors, Agreeable Gray. The silvery grasscloth on the crib wall is Elephant by Phillip Jeffries, and the carpet is CC11 Porcelain Doll from Blackstone Carpets. The fabric for the drapes and the accent pillow on the glider are by Bunglo.
We knew we wanted the nursery to be soft and sweet, but for the crib to be a modern focal point. We went back and forth between an all acrylic crib and this wooden Ubabub Pod crib, which I’m so glad we went with. I love the cocoon shape and that it doesn’t have any sharp edges. It has acrylic siding with little star cut outs so air can get through to the baby.
How fun is this bubble chandelier! When dimmed at night, it casts blue circle shadows all over the room which I think will be soothing during late night feedings.
Angeline had her carpenter create the bookcase which has random shapes to display books and toys. She also had an acrylic tray made to house our Nook pebble changing pad and diapers.
My favorite part of the nursery is the butterfly painting. I commissioned my talented friend (and yoga contributor) artist Gina Marie Dunn to create this special piece, and could not be happier with how it turned out! Meaningful lyrics and our daughter’s name are written throughout the background.
Whether you’re starting to decorate your nursery or just looking for some fun ideas, I hope these photos have inspired your creativity.
This will be my last post until after the baby arrives.. thanks for stopping by and please wish us luck!
