Project Nursery Update

Aug 30, 2013

 I am having the best time putting together baby girl’s nursery.  There is something so fun about decorating a child’s room.  While I am on vacation next week I have asked some of my favorite bloggers and friends and to compile mood boards for Baby Mason’s Nursery.  I can’t wait to see what they put together, I know it will be fabulous!  Hopefully some of you preggo ladies can gain some inspiration from their designs!

In the meantime I thought I would share some of the progress we have made on the nursery and few fun things we have bought to accessorize with.

This is our main artwork for the nursery that my sister gave us.  It is a huge abstract painting and the colors go perfectly with what I am envisioning.  The lamp and elephant were from Sterling’s nursery, it is always nice to reuse things when you can and save money.

The wooden piece underneath was a piece of furniture I picked out from my grandfather’s house after he passed away.   It is so special to me.  It will be the changing table. The stuff sitting on top of it is not staying there, we just set it there til we are ready to finalize the room.

I found the brass tray at Target and it is amazing.  I highly recommend for any room in your house.  I am going to use it to sit lotion and wipes etc on for the changing table.


 I also found this fabulous gold side table from Target that I plan to use beside our rocking chair.  That way I can set a drink or book on it while I nurse or rock the baby.


This mirror I snagged at Homegoods will most likely hang above the changing table.

I selected this Waverly fabric, Seeing Spots Noir,  for our rocking chair.   The rocking chair was my great mothers that we also used in Sterling’s nursery and we are just recovering it.

 You might remember our rug from Lulu and Georgia I showed a few weeks ago.  I am so excited about it, it is such a fabulous rug.  This weekend Lulu and Georgia is having a Labor Day sale and you get 25% off anything you order.  Use code LABORDAY25 when you check out.


I picked up these Serena and Lily Baskets for storage in the nursery.  They are even better in person than I thought they would be.


We are using this Biscuit Home Crib Sheet with lilac dots.


 And this West Elm Mongolian Lamb Pillow will either go on rocking chair or crib.


All I really have left to do is select curtains, a few other pieces of artwork, and find a light fixture.  I also need brass pulls for our white dresser- any suggestions where to find cool brass pulls?

I am debating between these two Lulu and Georgia Light Fixtures.  I really like them both just not sure what will look best in the space.


And I had to share to an adorable outfit I snagged for baby girl on major sale at GAP, because what nursery is complete without a well stocked closet??  I just adore the little pom-poms on this.  You can get additional 15% off your order at GAP with code GAPNEW

Have a fabulous weekend!  I am off to pack and get ready for vacay!
