It was difficult for me to get rid of the blue walls and the boyish touches this room had for the past six and a half years. It wasn't that I truly loved the way this nursery looked anymore since my style had changed a bit since our two boys were babies. This room just held such special memories for me and Jason. Two sweet little boys spent many nights sleeping in this room, and it was difficult having to change it.
Since Jason installed a chair rail in the room before Henry was born, I decided to go with a gray color on the bottom half and white on top to keep it clean and simple. We have been slowly painting the trim and doors in our home, so the trim, built ins, and doors were painted white in this room as well. The name of the gray color on the bottom half of the room is Woodlawn Colonial Gray by Valspar.
The artwork for the room was kept pretty simple. I used some IKEA frames I had on hand and framed some of the inspiration paper. I also cut out a little fawn shape using the same paper and framed that as well. Two of the pictures were taken from a calendar that I liked and held special meaning. The picture of the barn is particularly sentimental because Livia was born in Wisconsin. I made the mushroom, wreath, and camping pictures by cutting simple shapes out of paper and then framed them. Finally, the framed quote is a German prayer my grandpa taught me that I hold dear.
To add some warmth to the room, natural elements such as wicker baskets, driftwood, and the lamp were used. They add shades of brown that tie in nicely with the wood floor. The beaded garland the boys and I made adds some warmth and color as well.
The light fixtures in the room are sentimental because they were used by Jason and me when we were little. Again, the wood lamp brings in some warmth and the ceiling light works with the colors used in the room.
Other simple touches make this room special as well. We can't wait to make many sweet memories in here with our baby girl.
Welcome home, Livia Eveline! We love you and are so thankful to God that you are here!
Thank you for letting us share our baby girl's room with you! If you have any questions about anything in the room, please feel free to leave a comment or send me an email and I'll be happy to answer them for you!
