Finally, the nursery is complete and I can’t wait to show you!!
Originally, my husband and I planned on looking for a house after Emersyn was born. We lived in a one bedroom apartment at the time, so I had just accepted that fact that I wouldn’t have a nursery to decorate before she came.
Long story short, things changed VERY quickly and we ended up buying a house in March.
Although I was ok without having a nursery at first, I’ll admit I am so glad we did move before she camel
I am in LOVE with this space. I’m jealous of it actually. Why doesn’t MY bedroom look this put together!?
Now all we are waiting for is our little girl to make her big entrance this July!
The first thing I did was search Minimalist Nursery Ideas on Pinterest (where all great inspiration comes from of course) and created a vision board for what I wanted.
I knew I wanted it to be simple. I don’t hate the color pink, but I wanted to do something different and stick with just a black and white color palette and bring in color with plants and greenery.
First thing I knew I wanted was WALLPAPER! I have definitely jumped on the wallpaper bandwagon and I’m not coming off! This stuff is fairly easy to install, I did it by myself, and it is removable!
I searched on Etsy and found the most perfect feminine, neutral floral wallpaper from Koko Art Shop.
Her wooden name cutout was a gift from my Father-In-Law. I painted it black to make it pop off of the wallpaper.
I decided to save a little money by only wallpapering the top half of the wall and trimming it out with a chair rail from Home Depot to make it look finished.
Ok, her crib, is SO cute! It is the Babyletto Hula Oval Crib. Right now it is in its mini crib phase, but it converts into a full-size crib and eventually a toddler bed! So she will be able to use it for a long time.
The circle moroccan rug is from RugsUSA. I always look here first if I’m in need of a rug. They always have the best deals and SO many styles.
When looking for a rocking chair I wanted to make sure it was a simple, modern style and not too big and chunky. I found the perfect one on Wayfair and it couldn’t fit better! It’s the perfect size, color, style, and really comfortable. I’m sure we are going to be spending plenty of late night hours in this thing.
So, I got SUPER lucky with the curtain valance above the window. I’m not sure how, but I found a pattern on Amazon that almost exactly matches the wallpaper! I was so excited!
I wanted to bring color with plants and found all sorts of cuties, like a big Monstera plant, and a couple fake hanging ones from TJ Maxx and Kirklands. At one of my baby showers my cousin made the most gorgeous diaper cake decorated with succulents. I took the succulents and created an arrangement in a planter I got from Hobby Lobby.
Also, I can never pass up the chance to create a good ol’ gallery wall! I’ve never been a huge fan of empty wall space, and sometimes I can get carried away but I think that the pieces together above the changing dresser are just right. The round mirror is from Kirklands. The elephant picture and “Be Kind” wood art are from Hobby Lobby. The beautiful wooden “E” is from Marshalls. The wooden Georgia string art is something I made at The Sipping Plant in Roswell, Georgia. My husband and I went and it was so much fun! Each of us created a piece for the nursery.(He made the cactus you’ll see below). I made the macrame piece at a Pinterest conference in Atlanta (yes, those are a real thing and yes it was awesome!)
The dresser is the Malm 6 drawer dresser from Ikea.
We put our Bumbo Changing Pad on top of it. I’m very excited about this thing because I didn’t want a changing pad that required slipcovers. The less laundry the better, right?? This one is soft and seems like it will be super easy to clean!
Now for just some of my favorite odds and ends in the nursery! Like a cute little stuffed animal swing, her clothes I can’t wait to dress her in, and her little library.
We are so excited for our daughter, Emersyn Joy, to be here! We know our entire lives are about to be flipped upside down, but ready or not here she comes!
