I remember scouring the Sears catalog as a little girl, pretending to pick out items for my baby’s nursery. What a joy to actually do it. Designing this nursery was truly a dream come true. Here’s the final product. I think he likes it. Learn more about this nursery at Apartment Therapy or Project Nursery.
The bed skirt was made with fabric from Carousel Designs. The folks at Carousel Designs really have their finger on the pulse of what the modern mama likes. My mom and I sewed many pieces in the room, including the bedskirt.
My husband created the “H” art. It’s comprised of objects that start with H. It was printed on canvas by CanvasPop.
The custom cornice was made by Sunshine Drapery.
I snagged the footstool at Buy Buy Baby.
My late grandad refinished the chairs and antique dresser. The kids’ table is from Babies R Us. It was the floor model, so I was able to talk down the price significantly. Who knew being a mom would bring out my inner haggler?
Fresh Art Photography did our maternity shots. What a fun experience.
We found the ClosetMaid storage cubes at Lowe’s.
I must say I love this space. The bold grey stripes were definitely a risk. I got cold feet when it was time to put paint to wall, but I reminded myself that you only live once: out with the beige and in with the stripes. A nod goes to my mom, with whom I collaborated on parts of the room. I look forward to watching H continue to grow and learn in the space – bringing it to life, getting it dirty, and making it his own.
