Welcome to the nursery.
How fun to put this room together. I never thought I'd embrace the pink, but obviously, I went there. It was too fun NOT to. I mentioned this in the pom-pom post, but the "theme" of her room is "hooray! We love you." (The theme of all the other rooms in our house is "hooray! We love plants.")
This is a decent sized room which hopefully means it has plenty of space to grow with her (and the toys and stuff she'll accumulate). So awesome for that. I have shared links throughout this post but as a first time mom, all of these things are just what I hope works for us. I can't even begin to recommend them because I have no idea what will actually work or what the baby will like or what I will think after we start using everything. You kind of have to just dive in and tread water in the beginning so that's what I am planning to do.
Baby girl will be sleeping in our room in a Dream Home baby cot for the first little while. We went with this bassinet because it looked good and the reviews were good. I also like that it's easily portable (we'll travel with it when we go up to Sacramento, etc.).
The crib is by babyletto and choosen because it's gorgeous and again, the reviews were good. The crib sheet is by giggle. We bought this matress & matress cover. The rug was found at Home Goods. The curtains and curtain rods are Ikea. The gray poof was handmade by my friend Robyn. The knitted blanket was made my me as soon as we knew we were expecting a baby.
The dresser I've talked about endlessly. We are using it as a changing table (the top drawer holds diapers) and storage for socks, onesies, pjs and tiny striped pants. Her hamper in the closet is from West Elm. This is the changing pad and changing pad cover. We are cloth diapering, but since I have yet to actually do it, I can't share any thoughts on that.
The floor lamp is from Urban Outfitters and the rocking chair has been in Paul's family for ages. I recovered it at the beginning of the year. I made the triangle quilt as soon as I knew she was a girl. The basket is from Home Goods and currently has nothing in it. (I figure blankets, toys, etc. will end up filling it up.) Fun fact, all of the baskets are empty and so is that other side of the closet. Hooray for extra storage.
The bookshelf is from Ikea and 90% of the books on it are from when I was a little girl. My mom is rad and saved all of them so my baby has quite a collection already. The baskets on the shelf are from Target.
The art is an assortment of things I loved and has been shared on the blog before. But just in case, the pengiun print is by Kal Bartestki, the See The World is by December Baby and the giraffe print is from Paper Nut. The small frames (above the dreser) are Ikea and big frames are Aaron Brothers.
All the toys were purchased because I think they are beautiful. Hardly a reason to buy toys, but really, in this case I went for quality over quantity which is especially fun to do before the baby comes.
Most were found on amazon (play gym, rainbow stacker, car, rainbow object), but that montessori rattle came from etsy and I'm pretty sure that the pink and black ball was handmade (it was a shower gift).
That chalkboard looking art was a free download from Caravan Shoppe. I'm obsessed. I had it printed through Office Depot at 24x36 inches and I slipped it into a black frame I had on hand (purchased at a craft store, I think).
I painted the flamingo and the "you are so loved" art. (It says her name up above but we are waiting to share that until after she's here.) You probably caught the two "E's" in the room already. Yep, she's going to be an "E" like her mama. I love her name and can't wait to try it out on her after delivery. I've never met anyone with this name before so that's sort of magic.
And that's the room. My little girl will live, sleep, play and grow here. OH MAN, I AM SO EXCITED.
