The Nursery

September 30, 2014

The NurseryI’ve been giddy these days about sharing a recent (and extra special) project with all of you. I teamed up with Anthropologie to create a nursery for baby W and its become one of my favorite rooms in our house. What they say about “nesting” is most definitely true. My mind has been all about getting our home ready for baby these days and Anthropologie has been a favorite destination—just take a peek at their new arrivals here, so many amazing pieces, which is part of their new House & Home collection. When it came to the nursery my goal was to create a calming, soft and neutral setting since we are leaving the gender a surprise. I went with white, grey and flax as my color palette and incorporated different textiles and textures to the mix.

The last piece I chose was this Moroccan style Amala Flokati rug that ultimately brought the entire room together—too perfect seeing that we found out we were pregnant on our trip to Morocco. The Nursery Since putting the room together I’ve been finding myself lounging, reading and napping in this little nook. We filled the wall with family photos and purposefully positioned the chair by two french doors so on sunny days the breeze can float in.

The Nursery I’ll be spending quite a bit of time here so I’m still working at making it as convenient and organized as possible, while getting tips from other mamas. My husband had the shelves made, something I know will be rearranged constantly, but for now one just begged for a gang of cute stuffed friends like Louis the lion and this knit doll.

Wire hamper, vintage towel rack (another great find here), Aden + Anais sleep sack, old baskets (other great nursery storage here).

One wish we have for our baby is that he or she will get to travel and experience the rest of the world, this maps book seems like the perfect introduction.

Here are some favorites I wish I could fill another room with. Also be sure to read more about our nursery and the process over on the Anthropologie blog.
