We've lived in our two bedroom apartment for almost three years and we have NEVER used our second bedroom- until now! We've mostly had roommates or family living with us so it was really exciting to move furniture in and set it up as our nursery/guest bedroom!
The room is a decent size but felt really small once we got all the furniture in. It took a lot of moving everything around to find a layout that worked (thankfully my sister is an interior designer!)
I had registered for the crib and change table in a natural wood color because I wanted a simple Scandinavian style design, but the wood actually turned out a bit more on the pink side and sort of threw me for a loop! (Thanks to my parents and MIL though for the beautiful furniture! Both are from Babyletto) I also didn't consider that our queen bedframe is a chestnut brown so it was a bit of a challenge to make the different woods work together. I ended up incorporating small accessories with similar wood tones to unify them all (baskets hanging above bed, wooden hat rack, embroidery loop wreaths) I like to think it worked out (don't tell me if it didn't ;)
I wanted the room to feel clean and uncluttered, to feel like a kids room but not so much that it wouldn't be comfortable as a guest room also. I didn't want it to feel too boyish either but to be playful and simple.
The three whales artwork above the changing table was purchased on our baby moon in Seattle and helped guide the feel of the room. We already had our queen bed and duvet cover (Nate Berkus) so we used those colors throughout too. We got our white rug to help hide some of the ugly brown carpet underneath (rugsusa) Our rockingchair was a steal from Craigslist and the fur rug and footstool from Ross. The lamp is IKEA we've had forever, the bed frame and side table were diy projects, decorative pillows from Goodwill and Marshals. Zebra head is originally Target but I got at Goodwill (he loves staring at it!) The watercolor above the crib is my own painting and we made the Pom Pom mobile and all the embroidery loop wreaths (fake fern leafs glued to loop, viola!) I also lettered a saying from a children's book I loved.
We're really happy with the way the room turned out, we love that we can still have people stay with us and that it feels so comfortable and cozy! Hope you've enjoyed the "tour" tell me what's your favorite part!?
