Let me first say that there is literally nothing worse in the world than watching your innocent baby sick and not be able to do much about it. Breaks. My. Heart. I may or may not have shed a few tears when we got back from New York yesterday afternoon-my poor husband had both a melting down baby and wife. Sorry boo, love you!
Now, on to the nursery. We live in San Francisco and it’s considered a luxury to have a spare bedroom to actually be able to decorate. Until we found out we were pregnant I had left this room pretty bare. Just a bed for guests and some crappy decor that we threw together from our years of living alone (hard to remember a life without my husband & babe but alas it did happen). If you know me, you know I love everything neutral. I joke that I HATE color, but it’s not really a joke, I kind of do. I did have an all white wedding. I started decorating by picking out the big furniture first. What’s nice about being pregnant is that you have 10 months (in my case 9) to agonize over every detail in the room that you will end up spending the majority of your time in once the baby arrives. The rocking chair was my first purchase and it was a splurge. I tried to spend extra money on the big quality pieces I knew would last and either be used with our next baby or in Campbell’s bedroom as she grows. I assume Campbell will also be a lover of everything white as well, RIGHT? The rest of the big items crib, changing table and bookshelf were all purchased from Pottery Barn Kids as well. I did a ton of shopping around and found they had the most well made pieces for the price. I have been super happy with everything we purchased.
The details-this is where I had the most fun. When decorating a room it’s important not to just purchase any random item just to fill a space. I was methodical about every purchase that went into this room, I found inspiration from Instagram/Pinterest and then I STALKED. This wall monogram was one of these items, I was looking for the perfect monogram. I saw this little shop and I needed to have it. They stopped taking orders for a few weeks because they were too busy, but I kept checking back and pulled the trigger immediately once the shop opened again. So happy I did, the gold details in the room really make the grey/white theme more feminine. The hamper was also one of those back ordered, had to wait until the last minute items. If you haven’t checked out Anthropologie’s home decor you should, I would buy everything if my husband let me. The end table, wall tapestry and crib pillows are all from target. No wonder you can’t leave that place without spending at least $100. Frames and bedding are both from RH baby & child. I kept it simple with the bedding as they can’t sleep with anything but a sheet anyway.
If I missed anything let me know or if you have any questions about a room you’re working on and need help. I’m not an interior designer, but sometimes I like to pretend.
