nursery



Finally getting our simple little nursery put together was a collective effort. The six year old loves taping things to doors (currently on her bedroom door she has affixed a cover of Sports Illustrated from the Olympics, a couple of school projects, and a big list of who can and cannot come into her room to play) so it was only fitting that I would find this on the door to the baby's room a couple of weeks ago. Eath is a great place, Wren!





Melissa sent this dress and I think her embroidered "W" is so sweet.



It took me awhile to figure out what to put on the wall above the crib. We live in California - not really in an area prone to earthquakes, but my new-mother hormones keep me up at night worrying about random dangerous risks around the house so in the end I just used japanese masking tape to hang a bunch of old prints I found on etsy (I bought the whole lot of them for under $10).





The big kids love this page. Can you guess why?



I especially like this one. Angling bunnies? What's not to love about that?







Sister dolls made by Aunt Courtney from great Black Apple pattern. Adorable.





I found the Flensted viking ship mobile on ebay. Flensted is a really neat Danish company - their designs are magical. And can you see the picture the six year old painted of me on the wall? I love it. Especially that I'm not shown scolding her in it. Ha, ha. Just kidding. I never scold my children!



(I can't resist posting another picture of the baby, wearing the cutest little hat that my friend Jen made - check out her shop. So cute.)

How simple sweet. Not overdone. I love the thoughtfulness and attention to detail. What a lucky little girl.

BTW.. I ordered a mobile like that from the giveaway I won! Trying to decide what to hang on it?? I love the boats!

What a sweetheart. Lovely all in all. If you don't mind sharing what color is that on the walls?

lynne said...

Growfamilygrow - thank you! The color is Ralph Lauren via Home Depot's Dover Cliffs. It's hard to see in the pictures, but it's an off-whitish-grey with just a little hint of purple.

Joy - that's awesome!

What a dreamy perfect nursery. I'm so happy to get a glimpse of it. I love the purples and greens. All the little details are enchanting. Especially the improptu art taped on the wall.

Another beautiful nursery Lynne!

I really love your nursery, Lynne. The mini clothes are so cute! And do your kids like that particular page on the wall because it says 'toilet' on the bottom? He hee. That's what would make my kids giggle...:)

Lisa said...

So sweet and simple! You've given me the push I needed to get the 80's wallpaper out of my nursery. Did you make the quilt on the crib?

Sarah Jane said...

I LOVE this nursery....oh my goodness! So many yummy details! Can I ask you what paint color is on the walls? I am in love...and in search of the 'perfect' grey. LOVELY!

What an adorable nursery. She is coming into such a loving home.

Where did you find those adorable prints?

Jodi said...

That is one magical room. I'm sure little Wren will be happy she came to "Eath".

Love the nursery and all the sweet details. So many delights to provide scope for the imagination -- yours, hers, theirs. :-)
Thanks for sharing, Lynne.

Yes Welcome Sweet Wren! {Love her name} Very peaceful.

My son loves to adorn his door with stuff too...star wars poster, half finished fish drawing,...a sign that says No babies allowed! (though babies is spelled bubies and I laugh every time I see it)
