I'm 7 months along now, which means little miss Eleanor Pearl will be here before we know it. We're both doing great, and things are coming along nicely, both with her, and also with her nursery. Before we even found out we were having a baby I had already started thinking about this room. Anyone that has been in our house knows that I'm definitely not afraid of color, and of course a room for our little one would be no exception. The walls were already bright teal blue, and I wanted to use lots of bold, modern, black and white pattern, which would work for either a boy or girl.
Once we found out were were having a little girl I added in a couple additional colors including peach/light pink, and coral/hot pink. Our home is older, so we have a lot of the original brass fixtures, so I decided to use gold as a metallic accent to match the pre-existing sconces (plus I'm a little nuts for gold these days).
1. Convertible Babyletto Hudson Crib from Hayneedle. I am really happy with this choice, it was super easy to put together, and also very nice quality. Plus it comes with the toddler rail included, so we can use and keep it for many years.
2. Have you seen Ampersand Design Studios new line of kids products for Oopsy Daisy? As soon as I saw this print I felt like it was made just for our little girls room.
3. Black and white striped Olin Rug from Crate and Barrel adds a perfect bold touch to the space.
4. Gold moroccan pouf from Overstock.com to put our feet up while we rock in our modern Sleepytime Rocker from Nursery works (not pictured).
5. I became totally obsessed with these silly prints by artist Lisa Bengsston years ago, and became inspired to create my own using pictures of our own pups. I'll share the DIY soon!
6. I've also had my eye on these modern dachshund book ends from one of my favorites, Jonathan Adler for a long time, and thought they'd make the cutest addition to the bookshelves. Picked them up at Barnes and Noble.
7. For a color pop I'm making curtains out of this fun ikat polka dot fabric from Fabric.com.
8. I wanted to keep the room modern, but still add in pieces that are playful, and feminine, so I thought this adorable sequin heart pillow from Land of Nod definitely fit the bill.
I was also totally smitten with this polka dot wall treatment which Joy, of oh joy! used in both her nursery and home studio. This weekend Matt painted one of the teal walls white, and I will be adding on the dots using metallic contact paper I bought on Amazon.com. Such an easy DIY project that adds a big statement to the space.
Thanks for checking out my nursery inspiration. I'll be sharing pictures once everything is finished, and we can't wait to bring Ellie P. home to her new space!
