I am really pleased with how the nursery turned out. As I already shared I wanted a room that was light and airy, that was a peaceful place I would want to hang out in those first few months and that she would want to spend time in and retreat to sleep and be calm. I am really please with how it turned out and will only have a few plans to tweak it as she grows and her little personality starts to show. First is her sleeping area:
I wanted a sort of collection of art work for over her bed and changing table that reflected our family values and that I could add pieces to as she grew and as I found the right pieces in our travels and adventures (and etsy trolling). I am really pleased with how it turned out for now.
Clockwise starting on the far left: Love Spoken Here print found here, hand stitched Some See Weeds Others See Wishes done by yours truly, and Alphabet Print found here. I am hoping to add a few more prints and a few photos of our family there as well.
Our bedding as I already shared I found via Dwell Studios but pick up via a online store that had it discounted. The sheets were a bit of a pleasant surprise. They were supposed to be a small polka dot but instead they all came in this modern floral print. I would have sent them back except I liked the mistake better than what I thought I was getting! I really like that its not traditional pink and that its not a pink explosion. Its sweet and subtle and modern.*
Want to see what we did with her changing/play area? Stay tuned!
*And before I go down as the worst mom ever...yes, that's a bumper. Yes, I know that they are now deemed a safety hazard. I put it in crib while the nursery was set up and until she actually sleeps in her bed. Once she starts sleeping in her bed and/or starts moving in her sleep it will be removed. But until then I am going to enjoy the way it looks and check the ties regularly for security.
