Our Baby's Nursery

I thought I'd reveal our nursery now that it is mostly complete! Good thing, since we are only 3 weeks away for our due date.

It came out pretty close to the original mood board I put together and overall I am very happy with the look. I can't wait until our little baby boy or baby girl gets to come home to his or her new space. I also uploaded it to Project Nursery if you want to check it out there.
















I also want to share the sources for all of the great "stuff" to help provide ideas to others:

And a Few Vintage Finds:
  • Retro wicker changing table-circa 1981, mine from childhood. (Was brown, but my dad painted it white.)
  • Aqua Mirror (found at the vintage bazaar)
  • Green Lamp (found 5 years ago at a vintage shop in Chicago. New shade still being made!)
Grey Wall Color: there you have it: Our Baby's Nursery! I searched online for months for nursery ideas, so I hope this helps someone else on their nursery decorating journey.

Love the room!

Especially the rocker! I also have the Abacus from CB2 in my place in Miami.

Thanks again for the post

I absolutely love it! Not only is it magazine-worthy, it is very kid friendly. Just the right amount of color and calm. It's a place that both kids and grown-ups can enjoy. I'm envisioning you with your new little one spending lots of fun filled hours in there.

This nursery is so stunning. I'm sure your baby will be so happy to call it home.

I'd love to feature it and do an interview you about it at Baby Lifestyles. Please email me at editor at babylifestyles dot com if you are interested to discuss further.

And Claire is absolutely beautiful!

I LOVE your nursery! It has given me tons of ideas...being a foster mom and never knowing if i'm getting a boy/girl or a newborn/toddler, this is a great gender neutral room that can grow with them.

I love your nursery! We're using similar colors for our little boys nursery :). I was wondering about a couple items that you didn't list... Where did you get the polka dot blanket and basket that is on the bottoms shelf? I love those! Beautiful job!

elily00: Both the blanket and the basket on the bottom shelf are Carter's from Babies R Us. Not sure if the pattern is still out there, but good luck!


About Me

My photo
I'm a St. Louis native, but I have been living in Chicago since 2005 and am loving every windy minute of it. I enjoy cooking (more-so eating), home decorating and really anything creative. I'm a supporter of DIY & handmade goods, a fledgling foodie and a connoisseur of kitsch. I spend my days filling online shopping carts, emptying them and repeating the process all over again. Most of all I love spending time with my husband, Dave, our first child, Claire and my dog, Louie.
