Ahhh finally!! I’m SO excited to show you all our little girl’s nursery reveal today! I think this has to be one of my most favorite rooms I’ve completed to date. As you might remember, I decided to go a whole other direction in this room a while back. I finally had a clear vision of the perfect smokey grey paint, paired with soft pale pinks, whites, and touches of gold throughout. And that’s exactly what the end result came to be.
So dreamy. This could totally be a bigger kid or even adult room too, minus the crib. I wanted an elegant yet casual nursery with vintage touches for Ellie, and wanted to use these colors while she is little and before she has any say-so about what she wants in her room. I still have a few more years till she will want Elmo or Yo Gabba Gabba plastered about, so I’m going to sit back and relish in my dream nursery for a bit longer. ;)
Ellie has been sleeping in her nursery since she was 4 months old (and she’s now almost a year old), so even though it’s taken me a long time to write about her room, it doesn’t mean it hasn’t been ready for her to sleep in. Just wanted to get that out of the way. It just takes a while with 2 kids to find the perfect things to hang on walls etc. and before it’s blog worthy, so….yea.
Ok let’s see…the white dresser in her room I already had in a different room, the white crib is the same one Emma used (from Craigslist), the gold starburst mirror I talked about here a long time ago, the bookshelf you’ll see later on is about 50+ years old (a hand me down from my brother, which used to be my aunt’s when she was a kid), and most accessories and frames on the gallery wall are all either from Goodwill, thrift stores, or flea markets. I’ll add a complete source list at the end of the post.
Here’s a shot of the dresser area.
I love this mirrored antique tray and old hand-held mirror and brush I found at the antique store.
The bowl is from Anthropologie.
Love this picture of my hubby and Ellie just days old.
Oh and that gorgeous gold lamp is from Homegoods. It was on clearance and it was so hard not to keep it for myself!
The dress form I got last year from Ross.
Here is the collected gallery wall.
There is still plenty of space to add to it in the future, but the gallery wall is one of my favorite things in here. The old thrifted brass frames with the sweet newborn pics inside…I could stare at all day. And I eyeballed the gallery wall and got it right on my first try. BAM!
It’s hard to believe she’s almost a year old.
In this frame I hung up the onesie she came home wearing from the hospital, along with the newborn bow hat.
I keep extra pillows underneath that bench to play on. The rug is from Target and I love it! It doesn’t shed, is super thick and extra cozy.
On this side of the room is the really old bookshelf that my brother gave me years ago. It was an awful blue/green color so I just threw on some white chalk paint.
I have some books, knick-knacks, and a pink tutu for playing. :)
I brought in my old antique scale and put a pair of antique baby shoes (from the antique store) on it.
The pink ruffle curtains are from Restoration Hardware Baby & Child. I don’t buy anything there without a 20% coupon FYI. There’s always a sale. :) P.S.-If any of you are RH fans or shoppers, all of the pink and grey’s in this room are their “Petal” and “Dove” color.
On this little wall between the main door and the closet door I put up this thrifted brassy ledge and a sign from Homegoods.
It seemed fitting for the room. :)
Here are a few more shots of the room.
If you remember the scrabble tile wall project, you’ll know her nursery started out looking like this:
Then I changed my mind completely and now it’s this.
I’m really really pleased. I think we will keep it like this for at least a few more years! It’s definitely a room that can easily transition into a big girl room once the crib is gone. I can just envision a cute little vanity somewhere in here too so she can sit and play pretend dress-up. :)
Well, what do you think?! I hope it was worth the wait. :)
