Our Daughter’s Nursery

Oct 31

Over the course of blogging (one short year), I’ve been slowly working my way through the house sharing a little home tour. Today, I’m sharing a view into our daughter’s nursery. I absolutely love her bedroom, but know very soon we will be looking into a big girl bed and the room will change.

*sniff sniff*

They really do grow much too quickly. In the meantime I’m thoroughly enjoying her room in all its sweet baby-ness.

There’s a few impact elements in this space – the curtains, chandelier and the awesome argyle painted wall. More on the wall in a bit…

Along her entry wall is a simple dresser and glider/ottoman…

The dresser doubles as a changing table. The table-top changer is removable – and at age 2.5 I think getting pretty close to removing it…

The wall above her dresser was empty for quite a while. I struggled over exactly how to decorate that space, but so glad I waited. Now that she’s in pre-school a few mornings a week, this wall is the perfect spot to showcase her artwork (art string from Land of Nod)…

As with most items found in her room, everything has special meaning. This glider and ottoman were gifted to us from my in-laws. It was a gift from them when we were expecting our first child. The memories this chairs holds. *sigh* I’ve sat in this chair with all 3 babies for the last 8 years…reading books, calmly rocking at the end of a long day, nursing, and more. Sweet memories and this is a chair I hope to keep around forever. The handmade pink blanket is from one of my best friends from college…

Love her sweet night light, too…

Opposite her dresser is her crib…

All 3 kids slept in this crib too. Ahhh, the memories!

Here’s a better shot of the focal wall….don’t you love it?…

In the corner beyond her crib she keeps her best stuffies in a canvas floor tote

This adorable lamb rug was a gift from a special friend…

She gave this to me at one of my showers and when I opened it knew exactly what I’d use it for. Besides an adorable room decoration, each month from newborn through her first year, I took a photo of her on it…

 

It’s a great way to catalog growth! And sometimes, after they’re mobile, are too wiggly to be still for a photo…

 

But that’s all part of the fun, right? To catch them at various developmental stages. I snapped a photo of her each month through age 1. Then every 6 months since. Love those memories…and hopefully she will enjoy looking back on them one day too.

Moving to the next wall…

She has a great bookcase full of her favorites…

 

This room has a bathroom and large closet behind this door you see along this wall…

 

 

The current state of her dresser drawers…this drawer is directly under the changing table; daytime and nighttime diapers, wipes, ointments, etc…

Shirts and pants folded / placed in the drawer in rows for easy viewing / access…

Same with pajamas and misc items…

We’re still stocking up her winter wardrobe, so it looks like she doesn’t have a lot to wear…she does!…

Hope you have enjoyed this little tour!

    Your little one is beautiful and she is one lucky baby! Her space to grow in is amazing. I love her bathroom the most I think. Thanx for coming to party at THT! Have a great Halloween!

  4. Awesome doesn't begin to describe that argyle wall! I'm in LOVE! 🙂

    Thanks for such a great peek into her room! We have one boy now, but hopefully someday we'll adopt a girl and I can borrow some of your ideas! 🙂

    ps: Love those ideas on how to preserve the crib. We got a convertible crib partly for that reason!

    Well, at least the colors and argyle design can grow with her if you want it to. Beautiful room.

  6. What a beautiful bedroom {and bathroom!!} Love all of the personal touches and that wall is amazing! Thanks so much for coming out to the party at Clean and Scentsible. Happy Halloween!

    Oh my goodness!!! This room is GORGEOUS!! My youngest (of three) is 4 1/2 and I know exactly how you feel about having to party with the crib someday 🙁 I had the hardest time with the crib and our glider chair, because of all of the memories. You have to tell me about the shower curtain in your daughter's bathroom…it is awesome!!! Thanks for sharing this with us!!

  13. Her room is so so sweet! I love the diamond wall and the organizational tips! It IS so true that they grow up too quicly. 🙁 Im so glad, from a Mamas point of view, that you got so many beautiful pictures before it becomes a big girl room. What great memories captured! xo

    Beyond gorgeous! That wall is just amazing……….and guess what? One day you're wondering how to transform a nursery into a big girl's room – and the next ( today actually ) you're helping her pick out her wedding gown ( tears for real )
    Your newest follower – would love to have you come by and follow back when you have the time!
    Hugs,
    Suzan
