I'm baaaack. Took some time off to enjoy my new little nugget, Amelia Skye. This little being has brought us so much joy. After almost thirteen years, I love being a new mom again.
The day we brought Amelia home, it was so neat to show her her room that I had put together while she was in my womb. I still have a few finishing touches but figured I would go ahead and show you.
If you recall this was the inspiration for the room. I wanted the room to be fun and yet classic at the same time. The room was designed around this sweet flamingo print by Bella and Bunny. Originally, I had planned on wallpapering the wall behind the crib. However, after considering the way the walls stagger and the small size of the room I decided against it since it would make the room feel more choppy. To serve as a soft backdrop, I chose Benjamin Moore's Classic Gray for the walls.
The inspirational glider was beautiful and came with a hefty price tag of over $1000. I was not sure how much I would use it. So, instead I found a vintage bentwood rocker with nice lines and painted it white. Well, Ty painted it :) Not bad for $45 and a couple cans of spray paint. It is pretty comfortable too.
With a lack of storage in mind (Amelia and I share the closet space), I chose this great crib with underneath storage from Target.com. The sheet is from Target.com as well. Pillows are a Tuesday Morning find. The blanket is a handmade gift from a friend along with the tassel garland. And the book ledges are from Ikea.
I created a cute little dressing valet for Amelia with these sweet little shelves from Land of Nod.
The original design included a starburst light fixture but I wanted something a little more girly. Came across this light fixture on a trip to Home Depot. Attached a tassel and got instant glam for about $100. At night it makes the most beautiful patterns on the ceiling and walls. The side table was another vintage find.
This little guy used to belonged to big sister. I sprayed painted an embroidery hoop and wrapped gold twine around it. Now he has a place to perch.
The painting is of Ty and I looking over Amelia. Ha! Just kidding. I know it is not the typical art you would find in a nursery but I love it! It has the Palm Springs vibe that I was going for. The pineapple print is by yours truly and the dresser was another vintage score. You can check a DIY I did on it here. The changing pad cover was a custom order from an Etsy store.
Though there are a couple items I would still like to get, overall I am happy with how the room turned out. Looking forward to creating many memories in here.
