IT’S A GIRL!! Our baby girl has arrived! We welcomed Little Miss Logan “Lo” Elizabeth into the world & she is so incredibly sweet. She was named after both of my late grandmothers and her name is truly so special to us. We’ve had one full month now of sleepy snuggles & smitten brothers. I knew the boys would be in love, but I’m truly surprised how much they enjoy being around her. Knox loves to say “I just love her so much” and “oh, she’s so cute”. As you can imagine, it completely melts my heart.
I thought it was about time to share what we’ve been working on for the last few months- her nursery! Back when I first started looking for nursery inspiration, I knew I wanted to make it girly, with lots of blush pink, but I quickly realized there were SO MANY different adorable directions I could go with the room. I kept changing my mind between a preppy, classic look OR a little more trendy boho vibe incorporating lots of natural wood. It was a tough decision because I was truly loving both styles! SO… I decided to combine the two styles (not sure if this is allowed in the interior world but I did it!) and I completely LOVE how it turned out. I like to call the style “classic meets boho”. I will say it is definitely GIRLY and PINK, which is exactly what I wanted!
For the accent wall, we did 6 feet board and batten MDF boards with a light pink gingham print wallpaper at the top (2.5 ft). I ordered the stick & peel gingham wallpaper off of Etsy. The MDF vertical board and batten boards are 2.5 inch width and we spaced them 2 ft apart. After realizing there are way too many blush paint colors for this indecisive mama, I finally chose the color Sherwin Williams -Charming Pink. It was the perfect shade to match the wallpaper and wasn’t too bright. I wanted to soften the vibe of this wall by incorporating a fun sign from The Polymath Mom. The scalloped edges and natural wood on the sign helped to add the boho vibe to this wall, as well. For full disclosure: Lo is currently sleeping in her Babyletto mini crib for now, but her big crib will come up further on the wall, which will balance the spacing much better. Big Bro Mack is currently sleeping in the big crib and will get the boot within the next 6 months.
I reused the same gray & white rocker that I used in both of the boys’ nurseries over the years, so I brought in this rug to tie in the grays of the room. I don’t feel like the picture gives the rug justice- it is so beautiful! The light fixture was another “softener” to the room & is from World Market.
tiny dancer corner
After finding out Lo was a girl, one of my first purchases for her was this adorable pink tutu from Iloveplum.com. I used the tutu as inspiration to create this fun “tiny dancer” corner, which made a mini ballet barre absolutely necessary! We had an old mirror that was not being used around the house, so I added a pink frame, hot glued natural wood half spheres around it, added a wooden barre using IKEA curtain rod brackets and TA-DA! A perfect area that looks cute and will be fun for her later on down the road. The “You are magic” wire sign is from Wire and Wonder Co. and was the perfect final touch to this space.
All the boho vibes on this side of the room! I had so much fun with this space as I kind of felt like I was stepping outside of my usual decorating comfort zone. I focused on incorporating natural wood and tying in just enough feminine details. We added a girly scalloped trim to the top of the walls that didn’t have board & batten (again used Sherwin Williams Charming Pink paint color) and I think the scallops might be my favorite thing in the whole room! They add such a feminine appeal and was super easy!
The dresser is the infamous (& reasonable) IKEA Hemnes dresser that I have always loved and is super easy to spruce up. I painted just the fronts of the drawers a very, very light pink color called Sherwin Williams- Intimate White & added natural wood knobs. The mirror and rainbow decor is from Hobby Lobby, which I can’t link, sorry! The “Darling, you’re magic” sign is from Project Nursery and I love how it ties in with the Wire sign on the other wall. The natural wood shelves are the $4 spice racks from IKEA, that are an absolute favorite of mine. I turned one upside down to be able to hang stuff on it and it works so well.
a fun, girly closet
I loved pulling her closet together! I wanted it to be fun and a little “extra”. Haha! My dad painted different size stripes on the wall using all the samples that I originally had bought for the room so they didn’t go to waste. I used tape in between each stripe to separate the colors. I would’ve LOVED to have a closet like this when I was younger.
look at that transformation!
For fun, here are pictures of what the room looked like exactly a year ago when we first moved in. We had no idea it was going to be turned into a pink nursery- so fun!
And there you have it! Little Lo’s nursery that I have dreamed about decorating for years. It has a touch of just about everything my 5 year old self would have loved in my own room when I was young. I hope she grows to love it one day as much as I do.
