nursery

I hope you all had a lovely long weekend. I’m back to share the last room on my home tour. (I do have one other room whichI didn’t include in the tour. It has been our guest room for quite some time but I am in the process of converting it into a playroom for Finn. I’m not ready to show that room just yet, so I will share it in a few months when I finish).

I have shared images of our nursery before. Here and here, if you’d like to take a peek. I haven’t updated much, but I love the room so much, there isn’t much I’ve needed or wanted to change so far. (Those old posts also say where I bought most of these items, but I’ll try to repeat most of that here).

The cabinet was from The Land of Nod, hamper from Pottery Barn Kids Baby Furniture, and rug from Ikea. I did change out the nobs on the cabinet to the crystal knobs. The basket on top of the cabinet, I have had for years. It came from Crate and Barrel. The picture, chalkboard and swan push toy were all vintage finds.


The dresser was also a vintage find, and I really used it as my starting point. I knew it would fit perfectly under the window in this room and hold a changing pad nicely. The walls in here are a mint green and the olive green of the cabinet was a nice compliment to them.

I can’t recall where I found this sweet pillow, but I’ve had it tucked away for years. I decided to pull it out for the door of the nursery.

The swan push toy was found at Country Roads Antiques.

The lamp, gray crib, chandelier and drapes are all from Pottery Barn Home Furnishings as well. Boy, if I had a dollar for every email I’ve received asking where I found my crib, I would be rich! Unfortunately the crib was on clearance at Pottery Barn Kids when I bought it and the gray color has since been discontinued. There are currently two other colors available in the same style, see here: Harper Crib.

The shelves, chandelier, drapes, and white cabinet were all items I had before decorating the nursery, I just moved them in here from other rooms of the house. The little bookcase is a built in, so really the green vintage dresser and the crib were the only two pieces of furniture I bought for this room. It’s a small space, so not much else would fit.


The old metal duck decoy was a Barn House Boys find. The crown moulding shelves, which I moved in from another room, were originally from Pottery Barn Home Furnishings as well. I framed some old Spanish flash cards of animals in frames I found at Aaron Brothers. The ship was an Etsy purchase. And the little mobile my mother-in-law and I made from scrap fabric I had left over from the bedding, which we also custom made.

Many of the items in this room I found over the last several years, as we had plenty of time to plan for a baby while we were going through the adoption process and struggling with infertility. I would find something that I wanted for our “someday” baby and pack it away in hopes that I would get to use it someday. Thankfully that time is now, and we couldn’t be happier.

Thanks again for joining me on this tour! I’ve got to run, I have a wee-one calling for me!

Such a gorgeous room! I love that you have a nautical theme, but that it is very subtle. Everything goes so well together, and of course I love the vintage pieces!

What an adorable nursery! It has to be one of my favorites! Did you make the bedding?

This has to be my favorite room. Love the mobile that you created and all your other finds that you have been tucking away. Finn is one lucky little boy.

I also tucked away things for my someday baby for a long time…it was such a joy to finally see it all in my actual baby’s room. I’m so glad that you also are finally able to experience that same joy.

What a beautiful room ! The color and the light are wonderful !
I am pleased to tell you that we also have that hamper from Pottery Barn and they hold up very well.
It traveled from NY to Fl to Or to Argentina and is preparing itself for yet another trip :)

so so lovely! Did you make your burlap baby bumper on the bed? I am looking everywhere for burlap. Did you order it from somewhere?

Beautiful, almost perfect!

My husband and I are big vintage/antique collectors as well, but I always worry about lead paint. We recently found out our 1 year old has low level lead poisoning, so it has made my hyper-sensitive to it. Do you do something special to treat your vintage pieces, like a clear coat or anything? I would love to have some tips on how to safely use vintage furniture and such around my daughter!

This room is so beautiful, mix of old and new. I love the aesthetics.

These white and pale green colours are so effective! They remind me of clean, nice smells and lavender (for some reason)
