1. Dane’s Grey & White Nursery

    The nursery is complete and came out more serene then I could have ever imagined! Planning a nursery when you don’t know the sex can be tough so I stuck with a very neutral palette working with hues of grey! The end result though came out so beautiful, perfectly gender neutral, and calming {essential with a newborn!}!! Since shooting the room we had our little angel, baby Boy Dane, so now we can easily add pops of blue when the baby comes home.

    In case you forgot, this room used to be my office {see the tour here}. I had no drapery, a different light fixture, and clearly, no baby furniture, so there was a lot to be done.

    My inspiration began when I came across the Franklin & Ben Everly Crib and Amelia Double Dresser. Perfectly neutral with beautiful detailing, I loved the pieces right away. I then found this gorgeous persian rug on Overstock {the Overstock NuLoom rug}; it really influenced the grey feel in the room and since it was so large {7’10” x 10′}, it covered most of the dark wood floor. Then the simple but elegant Textured Shade Light Fixture from Land of Nod felt much more appropriate for a baby’s room than my previous light fixture. But the most important element of all was the stunning drapery I chose from The Shade Store. I absolutely love the windows in this room and did not want to hide them completely, but of course needed a blackout solution for the baby’s early bedtime and naps. I ended up choosing Pinch Pleat Drapes with a beautiful Ivory Linen Scatter Dot Fabric {from the Kate Spade Collection – here} with a black out lining, which was hung from a stainless steel bar. The Shade Store was more than a pleasure to work with through the process, helping with renderings, understanding my vision for fabric, and creating something that worked perfectly for the room!

    The finishing touches were what made the room super sweet, like the Elephant Mobile from Restoration Hardware Baby & Child that I hung above the crib and the Hanging Shelf from Pottery Barn Kids {similar} which I filled with little toys above the glider chair. If you take a look back at the before {here}, you may also notice I painted the door and changed out the door hardware to Schlage polished nickel knobs to match the rest of my house… a subtle change but again, fit with the softness of the room! Then I filled our Leaning Shelf {similar} with some sweet baby essentials {see my list below at the bottom of the post!}.

    Looking forward to Dane seeing his beautiful room! See all of the pieces I used to fill the room below!

  3. Brooks’s Baby Nursery

    As you may have seen on my instagram, I am so excited to be partnering with Restoration Hardware Baby & Child to transform my little boy’s room from the sweetest nursery to a big boy toddler room. I realized that before I start to share the detailed process of working with their design team, I needed to actually share with you guys a closer look at his current room. I absolutely love this cozy space, as does Brooks. As I explained to the design team, it’s a place where we play quietly at the end of the day {the craziness after school…

  4. Nursery Shelves

    In the last few months we have had a few exciting changes in the kiddos’ rooms… Brooks was rolling and moving so much he was ready to transfer from a mini alba crib {or similar} to a standard size crib, and since Reese was turning two {and realistically we didn’t want to purchase a second crib}, it was time for her to move to a big girl bed {ie. a twin bed with a little guard fence}. Since the new crib in Brooks’ room took up substantially more space than his last, we had todo a bit of re-arranging and move…

  5. Nashville Baby Nursery

    Welcome to Baby Brooks’ Nursery! We are so pleased with the finished look and you can tell by all the smiles in this post that we are loving playing in our new space! While the room started out as a teenage boy’s room with dark wallpapered walls, wooden built-in shelving, a dark rug, and gothic inspired lighting, we instantly updated the look with the sweetest Benjamin Moore paints, a light colored rug, new light fixtures, and endless baby accents in white and blue. For furniture we really worked with what we had in our nursery in New York city; the Alex Crib from…
