I wanted to pop in with a tour of our baby's southwestern nursery. The idea for the theme came to us at dinner when I was 18 weeks pregnant. Even though we already knew we were having a girl, we wanted to design a nursery that could work for a boy or girl since we hope to one day have another child. The southwestern theme just felt right as we live in west Texas.
Before we could do anything about a baby room, we had to clear out the office. You can see the office in all its glory in this old home tour post. We were okay losing the office space because neither of us ever actually utilized it (that's probably because the furniture was never that comfortable). We cleared the space over winter break, and special touches from our friends and family helped us make the nursery come together more perfectly than what we'd ever imagined. We hope you enjoy the nursery tour! I'll link to everything I can in case you see something you love too :)
Ta-da! It's our new favorite room.
Details, details, details:
Furniture: Jenny Lind DaVinci Crib (a gift from Brendan's parents), the very comfy Shermag Valencia Glider & Ottoman (a gift from Brendan's aunt Carol & uncle John and cousins Katie, Anthony, Molly & John), Floating bookcases by Pillowfort (can't find the cloud one on the Target website now). The desk and chair are Brendan's (from childhood), and the quilt stand belonged to my mimi (dad's mom).
Decor: (Left Wall) Letter "E" (made by my cousin Amanda), pink quilt (quilted by Brendan's grandma Nancy), mint blanket (knitted by mom's best friend, Virginia). (Above the crib) "I Love You" banner (purchased at a gift-shop in Maui on our babymoon), 3 cacti prints from RomaLena on Etsy. (Above nightstand): Print from an Austin artist (gift from cousins Amanda and Matt), print from Cuddle + Kind. (Above the glider): clouds and raindrops (handmade decor from our baby shower by Amanda and Matt). (On the glider): Purple blanket (knitted by our friend, Jenni), Llama Pillow (a gift from our friend, Allison--from World Market). (Above the desk): Antique rug (a gift from Brendan's sister, Annie). (On the desk chair): Pink/Rainbow blanket (crocheted by our friend and co-worker, Stephanie). Rug: Berber Moroccan Diamond Rug. Bedding/Chair pillow: Carousel Designs. Mobile: Levtex Baby. Hamper: Levtex Baby.
The dresser/changing topper was a gift from my parents. It's Eco Chic Kennedy but is no longer in stock. The fridge stand we found at an antique shop years ago (and a beer fridge should be an essential part of every nursery!) The hand painted letters were the craft that all our family and friends participated in at our baby shower, and my dad and Brendan engineered the perfect way to display them. Our co-worker Emily found the lower print ("though she be little, she is fierce") on Etsy, and the top print is also Cuddle + Kind.
Brendan's cousin Katie made the "hello baby" banner. You can check out her design work here. Brendan's dad painted the bunny and the bear. <3
A close up of those beautiful letters!
The curtains are also by Carousel Designs, and I love the arrow curtain rod by Pottery Barn Kids. One of our maternity photos is framed and hangs above the desk <3.
We had so much fun putting this room together, but we couldn't have done it without the creative and special touches from our loved ones. This nursery feels just perfect, and we can't wait to show it to our baby girl. Thank you to everyone who helped make our dream nursery a reality!
Later this week, I'd love to do a full home tour post and show you where exactly we moved all those books from the office, but we'll see what the week brings!
