I’m over-the-moon to finally be DONE with the nursery!!! We started gathering decor pieces when I was just 10 weeks pregnant. And now, almost 30 weeks later, it has all come together so beautifully! Most of you know that there is something extra special about this nursery. My wonderful, amazingly talented, woodworker of a husband built the furniture!!! We came up with our custom designs back in February (mostly inspired by pieces from Restoration Hardware and The Land of Nod). It took us several weeks to come to an agreement on what style we wanted. Half of me loves traditional and half of me loves modern and Daniel leans towards traditional. I think our furniture is a good mix of the two styles. You CANNOT buy furniture this nice! It’s incredibly sturdy (and heavy). Daniel spent over 80 hours building it! I’m sooooo proud of him. He is incredibly detail-oriented. He even installed soft close hardware on the dresser. Yes, you heard that right, SOFT CLOSE DRAWERS. I thought it was a bit over-the-top at first, but I’m definitely in love with that feature now! No doubt, these furniture pieces will be in our family for decades to come.
I knew from the start (actually before I was pregnant) that I wanted to do a yellow/gray/white/black color scheme without a “theme.” I didn’t want the room to feel too “babyish.” I wanted it to grow with our daughter and be sophisticated and stylish. For those of you who know me, you know I LOOOOVE interior design (studied it as my minor in college) and I’ve been dreaming about designing a nursery for years. I love clean, simple, and uncluttered spaces. I am perfectly in love with our nursery! All it’s missing is a baby!
