baby girl's nursery tour!





welcome to miss stella's little nursery!  i am happy to say that we have finally put the finishing touches on her special space and just love how it has turned out.  when i was pregnant i could not decide on a "theme" for her room, per se, so i decided to collect things i love throughout the first year of her life and build her room as she grew.  it was a work in progress, but i think it is safe to say it was worth the wait!  

overall, her nursery has a warm whimsical feel with an eclectic mixture of vintage and modern items.  it's fun, practical, and very colorful; just the way we like the rest of our home to feel.  

we went vintage with some items such as her great, great grandma's oval mirror.  to give it an updated feel, we painted it carnival orange.  this makes her space feel larger and gives us a giggle in the morning when we take a peak at our reflections and laugh at our bed head hair :)  a few other vintage items include my old thrifted piggy bank, stella's wooden toys, and our instagram photo holder.  we went in the opposite direction and went modern with her platform crib and the diy decor i made a few weeks back.  as you can see, this is easily everyone's favorite room in our home.  thanks for dropping by!

  1. I love the Instagram display! What is the display made out of? The room is adorable, and I've taken your DIY 'S-letter-string' project and started one myself!

  14. This little reading corner is really nice indeed. :-)

    I'm thinking about putting up three such shelves, the first one as low as your shelf... but I'm wondering if that's safe. Probably my daughter will start to use it as a ladder... Hm.
