Happy Monday! Never have I ever been more excited for a room reveal. Amalia’s nursery is far and away my favorite room in our house, and not just because she lives in it. The light is beautiful, and it has an amazing energy to it. This room used to be my home office, but it’s closest to our bedroom so we decided to turn it into the nursery instead.
It has an amazing energy and incredible light. I’ve loved nursing her in this room with Boots sitting at our feet for the last few days.
I teamed up with Serena & Lily to design the space, and am beyond grateful for their help and generosity with this project. Back in January, I met up with Allyson, their head of visuals, to talk about how the space would look. In only one meeting, we picked out pretty much everything. I had told her that I wanted it to be pink and white, but had no real vision beyond that. All of my friends and family tried to convince me to keep the space more toned down with white and greys and pops of pink, but I’m so glad I went with my gut.
I knew that I wanted an accent wall, so we started by picking out the wallpaper. Sadly it’s now discontinued but I love the sage green in it, something I never would have chosen on my own. It’s a little bit preppy, a little bit whimsical, and the perfect amount of color that doesn’t overwhelm you. Because it’s so busy, we chose a simple jute rug for the floor… I ended up layering a Dash & Albert indoor/outdoor rug over it because they’re so easy to clean and I love the leopard print.
Instead of buying a changing table that would only get used for a few years, we went with a gorgeous raffia dresser (I’ve had my eye on it for years!) that gives the room a beachy feel and looks stunning in person. I added a changing tray on top which I didn’t have when we took these photos. It’s the perfect height, and she’ll be able to use it as a dresser forever… unless I steal it for my own room.
For storage, we chose a set of three seagrass baskets: We use one as a hamper, one for extra blankets and crib sheets, and the other for toys. This kid has a lot more stuff than I had imagined, so I’m glad Allyson suggested these!
One of my favorite pieces in the room is the commissioned painting of Boots by Megan Carn who is insanely talented. I sent her a photo of him along with our color palette and she created it in one shot! The other custom piece is the dreamcatcher we have hanging on the window by Erica Kane Fink. I saw her dreamcatchers in the Serena & Lily store and reached out to her about creating one together. It came out perfectly.
For the reading area, my sister bought us this pink wall monogram as a shower gift which I just love, and we went with a simple Ikea bookshelf that is nothing fancy but fit perfectly in the room. We’re still on the hunt for artwork to go behind the glider, but want to find something perfect so I’m practicing my patience skills.
