We finally finished the nursery and are excited to share a lot of photos with you today! It’s hard to believe we started working on the this room back in December and here we are five months later with a one month old. This room is a great mix of DIY projects (like the huge letter art, the fluffy ottoman, and amping up an Ikea Tarva dresser), a couple splurge pieces, and some repurposed pieces, too (our photo ledges from our last house are now used for lots of children’s books and we even painted Greta’s old crib)!
When I put together the mood board for this room, I really wanted the finished space to be charming and sophisticated and I think it is just that. It’s a place I enjoy being in, but charming enough for our little girl, too. We’ve posted about the whole process along the way, so for “reveal” posts, I tend to let the pictures do most of the talking. However! At the end of the post there is a master source list.
One last before photo so you can see what we were working with:
Because the room doesn’t have a closet, we needed a way to store a few additional things that didn’t fit in the dresser. This floating shelf and a variety of baskets does the job so well. It’s warm and organized and even ties into the hot air balloon baskets.
We’re thrilled with the way the room turned out. With each piece we added (the light! the crib sheet! the mirror! the mobile! the curtains! the dresser!), we kept saying “this makes the room.” While they all work together to execute the sweet and calm ambience we envisioned, now that Faye is here, it’s clear that she makes the room. I couldn’t think of a more perfect picture to end on. Favorite part?
