I can hardly believe I'm writing these words: our nursery is finished. (And on time too!)
Above, some of my favorite elements from the room, most of which are gifts from the grandparents and friends: the Binth numbers poster, the Jenny Lind crib, a rideable stuffed lion, an Irish wool throw, and two decorative throw pillows - Twinkle Living's Zigzag and Thomas Paul's Flock.
The huge LACK bookcase from Ikea is filled with treasures. We hung a TRANBY mirror over the dresser/changing table, which reflects the newly created mobile that hangs in front of it. On another wall, a card from Etui hangs in a brassy frame.
Above is pictured my current favorite piece of furniture in the house: Monte Design's Luca glider, which is incredibly comfortable and will migrate to the family room eventually. Its chocolate brown welting inspired the dresser drawer trim. The artwork on the glider wall includes OrangeBeautiful's Laugh Dream Love print, two gorgeous paintings by my sister-in-law Molly, and a Snow & Graham thank-you note which is letterpressed with the sign language alphabet on the back of the card.
The dresser/changing table was quite a project and I credit my wonderful husband with many hours of messy sanding, priming and painting. But it turned out better than we had even imagined! With all the work that went into it, I couldn't resist lining the drawers with Martha Stewart's Seashell Pink Flourish wrap, which I also used to make baby shower thank you notes.
Many thanks to my husband, our parents, family, and friends for all the special touches that are incorporated into this room; I can't wait to see our daughter grow and play in this space!
Postscript: As reader Leah helpfully pointed out in the comments, excessive crib bedding, including bumpers, pillows, blankets, etc., can be potentially unsafe and even contribute to SIDS. When designing the nursery, I decided to forego a "crib set" which often includes bumpers and a quilt, and instead incorporated two throw pillows as the decorative portions of the crib bedding; these are intended to be easily removed when the baby is in the crib. As a bonus, they can also be used as floor cushions for propping the baby up when she's playing on the floor!
