This has been a long time coming! We had a blast putting this room together, and it is by far my favorite in the house. The paint color is definitely a little more mustardy than I have been able to capture, but you get the general idea!
I envisioned a space for our girl that reflected us, but also gave her room to be herself. Not too girly, modern, or whimsical, it is just the way we imagined it.
We spent about three months pulling the different elements together, and purposefully so--we spread the nursery budget over a few months of income, but also wanted to have plenty of time to scour the deals and find used items.
Sugar Snap Pea (www.sugarsnappea.com), a local children's boutique here in Charleston on King Street. Right now, we have it set up as a bassinet, but it comes with the parts to turn into a full-sized crib when we are ready for the transition a few months down the road.
Naptime Diaries for the awesome sales that afforded us the chance to hang some beautiful words in this room!
We have purposefully saved the space above the changing table and dresser to fill with something thoughtful and fun. We just aren't sure what we want to place there--maybe a big print of some kind or a montage of photos of Olivia. Who knows! The changing table was given to us by longtime friends about six months ago, and Ben knew that would be its purpose from the first second. We couldn't have found anything better or more meaningful.
The lighting is really terrible in this room, so we are still on the hunt for a floor lamp to place next to the changing table.
Now all we need is the babygirl to make it perfect. Which is really all we needed in the beginning. All of these things are just extras!
