Our Girl’s Nursery

Our little Ray girl will be here any day now. It feels like I was just telling Braden the news of baby over lunch in an Indonesian rice field, and now we are 2 days from our due date?! The days fly by too quickly. While I’m on baby watch, I thought I’d catch up on blogging & personal photo album making. So first up: Our Girl’s Nursery! Although it’s teeny, this room made the most sense for a nursery. Babies are tiny after all, & I’m not quite ready to loose my studio space. The afternoon sunshine in here makes it the happiest spot in the house–especially when the sheer curtains are pulled to drench the room in shades of pink & orange. I just cannot wait to hang with my girl in here so soon.

I plastered the walls using Valspar Venetian Plaster, adding quite a bit of white as I applied the final coat to keep the room from looking too dark. The texture gives a subtle reflective sheen & the gender-neutral cream tone is perfect for any future babes that might sleep in here. A large mirror that my dad & I framed makes the room feel brighter & more spacious. Since space in here is limited, my nursing chair lives out in the living room, and the hammock was a way to still have a place to rock baby in her room.

Items like the vintage hand-me-down dresser & wardrobe, the rug we found when backpacking in Athens, the thrifted rattan “fish family” from Restyled By Chelly, the Baby Monkey photo I took in Indonesia, thrifted converse from my Dad, & my uke from high school are the little personal touches that make this nursery feel extra thoughtful. Most of the other of the items were gifted by our sweet family & friends–this baby girl is so loved already and we could not feel more thankful!
