baby c's nursery project

Hi folks! I apologize for the long hiatus, life has been a bit all over the place these last few months. I’m excited to hop back on here to introduce a fun new project that’s in the works. My dear cousin and friend, Jaime, is due with her first baby boy this spring and when she asked me to help design the nursery I jumped at the chance. As many of you know, interior design projects can mean a whole lot of lead times and patience, so as we count the days until everything starts coming in, I thought I would share our plans for this adorable space with you.

Jaime’s goals for the nursery are summed up perfectly in her blog post, “From the beginning, I envisioned the nursery to be mostly neutral with pops of color - serene, not too "baby" and with pieces that will grow with the baby and our home. Once we found out it was a boy, I was full into a woodland theme. After searching and finding tons of options, we went with Little Unicorn's Forest Friends pattern as the base of the design. It fit the bill perfectly!”. Here’s a little peak at how the room looked before we got started.

As you can see, the room was a blank slate, my favorite kind of space ;). Once we worked through an ideal layout and a priority list (and got rid of that ceiling fan!), I came up with a couple nursery design schemes to pull it all together. Each scheme stemmed off of a specific crib selection, whether it be Crate and Kid’s Hampshire Crib or Kalon Studios Caravan Crib.

We had a little trouble deciding which direction to go because they are both just so darn cute, but finally nailed down some selections and we are on our way! We’ve made a few tweaks since these initial ideas, and I can’t wait to show you the finished project soon! The bottom line is that designing a nursery is FUN. Who’s having a baby next? ;)
