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 (similar here) 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 hanging chair is from our first home—this is the third room we’ve used it in and it’s still going strong.
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.
The first gift we received for Marigold was this amazing weaving from Rachel. The tiered basket is from Xinh and Co (one of my favorite Nashville brands!).
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.
The little dolls are from Blabla kids and the greatest fluffy throw ever is from CB2.
I found these wicker butterflies on eBay and I thought they’d be the perfect way to carry on the theme since I used wicker animals in Nova’s nursery and the kiddo bathroom as well.
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.
Here’s 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!
I knew this space needed a soft, cozy rug. It’s SO soft! The adorable swan stuffed animal is from here.
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
This is a beautiful room!! And the way you handled the closet space is PERFECT. Do you remember where you got the dresser itself? My little girl found this and has been BEGGING me for a matching closet. Her heart is set on a dresser just like Marigold’s
Hello! What color did you use for the walls? It compliments Privilege Green so well!
I’ve learned so much from your interior design posts – most importantly, how fun it is to take risks and adapt a piece to suit your needs! Do you have any tips on painting furniture? Everytime I paint anything I end up with a streaky final product, and your finish on the dresser looks amazing. Thanks!
So beautiful! I want to change my daughter’s room too and have already bought all cute and stylish furniture that we need 🙂
Also I want to buy a good humidifier, cause she has a season allergy and problems with sleep. I believe, that the right humidifier will help. Hope, she will be happy 🙂
Thank you for some cool ideas!
This room is gorgeous Marigold is going to love it!!! I recently found your blog via the parents magazine article and I am so inspired by everything. Have you already posted about how you created this phenomenal closet storage system? It is so perfect and exactly what I would want to do—as long as it isn’t too expensive. I am all about maximizing storage space on a budget. 谢谢
Hello 🙂 Super dreamy room. I love it! Do you mind telling me what size baskets you purchased from Xinh and Co ? I’m looking for something exactly like this for the little girl I nanny. The family has hired me to design her room. Thanks!
I adore the wallpaper and the green drawers, super cute! x
Love this room! Where are those darling Mocs from??
i looooove that dresser – color, knobs, everything. so, so happy for you and your family!!
So cute! Can I ask where you found the colors for the DIY wall hanging? I’d love to find similar colors for a project I’m working on. Thanks!
The yarn? I buy it all from local craft stores (mainly Joann) xx!
Awesome, thank you!
Everything is so cute!! I absolutely love the swinging chair!
Love the color, the window seat is such a great addition
All the best!
Loooove this room! It’s so sweet and serene. Marigold is going to love it!!
Hello! I love her room! Where did you get the changing table topper for the dresser?
Thank you! xoxo
Collin built it since the one we had for Nova’s room was too large for this small dresser. 🙂
Wow! Loving this airy, breezy, summer-vibe room for your little girl! <3
Dreamy!!! Love the window seat and the closet, the high ceilings and the colors.
So adorable. I’m so happy for you guys and can’t wait to meet your new little one.
Ah! Just so adorable. I really love the closet too.. trying to make a standard closet space functional for small children things is always so hard! 🙂
Love what you’ve done, Elsie!
Just curious, is the white jute rug the same as in Jeremy’s studio? (but smaller)
Yes, it is. We have it in our bedroom also. We really love it (three of them in our home total!) xx
That dresser! I am dying over it.
Such a beautiful room with such a peaceful feel to it.
So excited for you guys!
