Well, it’s been a month since we were matched with our little lady, and to be honest, it’s still sinking in that in a few short months we’ll be parents to a 1-year-old girl! This room is a combination of what we have loved and used in Nova’s nursery, a few hand-me-downs, and a couple new pieces. The result is pretty simple and, most importantly, a room I cannot wait to live a new chapter of our lives in! For several months, I checked vintage shops, flea markets and Craigslist for a vintage dresser. I didn’t end up finding one because the size we needed was pretty small, and maybe just a little too specific. So I ordered this dresser and painted it (the color is Privilege Green by Sherwin Williams) and I added wicker knobs, which I found on eBay.
Collin did the shiplap on two walls, which made the room feel instantly cozy! I absolutely love it!
The floral fabric is from our collection and I was so excited to see how authentically vintage it looks. I hand-painted all the shapes myself and our designer Mara worked her magic on them. Hopefully I can squeeze in a few more fabric projects for Marigold before our wait to travel is over.
Just like when we were waiting for Nova, I sometimes just wander into this room and look at the tiny shoes and clothes and dream about holding our daughter. I know it will come soon and I’m truly not an emotional wreck (like I was last time), but it’s still not easy to wait months to meet a child you’ve already given your heart to.
Moving along, we used stick on wallpaper from Chasing Paper. And I was happy we were able to use Nova’s crib (that she never slept in even one time) for little sister’s room.
I did my best to do this Honestly WTF DIY. The morning of this shoot I was going everywhere trying to find a cat brush (it’s a part of the DIY, haha) and I never did find one. I may try later, but also I may just leave it like this forever. It was fun to make!
These little cuties are from Cuddle + Kind.
I was having a tough time keeping these shelves tidy, so I added all the baskets and it’s been great ever since. There is a basket for almost every kind of toy (Legos, blocks, dolls, musical toys, etc.). I got these from Xinh and Co as well.
I’ll be sharing a post soon about how we built out the closet. It wasn’t expensive and it makes a HUGE difference in the usefulness of a standard closet for storing children’s clothes. My absolute favorite part of the entire room is this chandelier from Lucent Lightshop. It looks like a daisy from below and is just so incredible!
Thanks so much for reading! I am so excited to bring our little bundle home. Thank you for your endless love and support! xx. Elsie
