A Nursery Reveal
You may have caught a whiff of what this baby nursery reveal would look like in previous posts, but the *official* reveal is finally here!
If you didn’t already know, my previous work and education was as an interior designer…and boy, do I miss those days! So, it’s always a fun time for me when I get to design a new space in my own home. Today I finally get to reveal all of the sweet details in our newest member’s room: the nursery.
This room was always destined to be what I call watercolor blue…
…you know, that deep, vibrant blue that only watercolor paints can seem to create?
I was inspired by the Briar Hill Bequest collection a few years back, snatched up THREE jelly rolls (more than I could every possibly need for a baby quilt) and decided that my next baby was getting this quilt and that it was going to be awesome.
From there, it evolved from the baby’s new quilt to the baby’s new room.
My house is a little cape cod, so we have some interesting ceiling situations when it comes to the upstairs. I like to do a white wall and colored ceiling in the kid’s rooms to make it more interesting and purposeful!
As if sloped ceilings weren’t enough of a challenge, we then come to the dormers! I created this little nursing nook with a thin glider and skinny floating shelves, a few hooks, and a flush mount touch light for those late-night feedings.
The changing area needed some extra lighting, so I found this awesome lamp on Amazon – it’s got three settings ranging from VERY bright to dim – I think baby girl will just love looking at this lamp!
Since we are dealing with pretty limited space, I added some hanging baskets on these cabinet door knobs for a little extra storage – I love how they pick up the gold details that are scattered around the room!
On one wall, I tried to incorporate some of the pink and blue with this awesome world map wall paper! Our older daughter has really enjoyed learning about new places in the world with this giant map!
We are all ready & so excited to bring out little girl home, not just to a new space but to a new life as a family! I hope you’ve enjoyed our little 100 square foot tour and feel inspired to try something new in your own space!
Where’d I get everything?
