I wanted to finally share with you Lea's nursery pics. This room was once our guestroom that I recently transformed about a year ago. We ended up making our office duel purpose as the guest/office and it worked out well.
Working on her room was a labor of love and I'm so happy with the way everything turned out. Pretty excited as well that Project Nursery Readers' selected it as one of their favorites. They say the color lilac is on trend in girls' nurseries and they've been seeing a lot more of it. It's a great choice if you don't want to go pink, but still want to keep it feminine and sweet. If you do decide to go with a lilac or lavender, you might find it a little difficult to find much in that color out on the market, especially curtains. Be prepared to get creative.
I had to get creative with a lot of the accessories and wall art. I had an art book and used the Monet pages for her artwork. I also reused and repainted some pieces I already had like the scroll iron piece above her changing table and the mirrors. Etsy is a great resource to find pieces you can have custom made in your colors. The crochet blanket and also the flower pom poms I bought on Etsy.
I had a really great time creating this space for Lea. It's important to have fun with the process, but definitely allow yourself plenty of time to get it finished. You don't want to rush through it. There were days I didn't feel like doing anything, months even, and time slips away quickly. Also, throw in a little unexpected. For me, I'm not at all into the "matchy matchy" stuff. I love to mix pieces and try new things that you wouldn't typically see. Step outside the box and you may be surprised at what you can create.
We love our little Lea ! Can't believe she's already 2 months.
