There's something about having a first baby that makes a nursery feel so special. It's nesting on a primal and pantone level. Not surprisingly the nursery was the first room to get the most design attention in our home. When we moved in the room had two giant mirrors on each non-window wall. We had a friend smash one of them and then I patched and primed the wall for paint. Because the rug was one of the first items I purchased to live in the nursery I wanted an accent wall that would work well in contrast. It became a bit of a joke though, because I constantly told people It's coral, not pink!, in an effort to assuage everyone it was a gender neutral color for the unknown gender of our baby. Ha! The rug is still one of my favorite pieces because, depending on the day, I see jagged number threes or rows of abstract hearts.
sequin name garland I made for her. It's a space I feel at home in and one I hope Amelia will grow to love as she gets older. Thanks for taking a peek into our humble abode!
