This floral nursery was a personal project of mine because it is my daughter’s. So I’m a little biased but… I love it! I’m not going to lie, I started planning this nursery the second we found out we were having a girl. I don’t know why but I always thought I’d have a boy. There really is no reasoning behind that statement, I just had a feeling that I would be the mom to a little boy. Our baby doctor even said he thought we were having a boy based off of the heartbeat. So imagine how shocked my husband and I both were when we were told “it’s a girl!”. I’m pretty sure my response was “whaaaaat?”. And then I just remember being so excited and immediately thinking of flowers, watercolors, and soft fabrics in a way I never did before. Before our gender reveal party was even over, I had already enlisted the handy work of my good friend, Lindsey of Nolia Atelia, to hand paint the nursery walls. I really wanted these watercolor floral walls and I had to find a way to do it without using wallpaper. This was back when my husband was terrified of wallpaper and put his foot down that we would never have that in our house. Yea right, he literally just installed some in our laundry room a week ago 🙂
Every little detail of this nursery is so special to me. I really focused on not adding things just to add them. Instead I wanted everything to have a purpose or really speak to me. From the hand painted walls by a dear friend of mine to the vintage rocking chair that once belonged to my husband and his sister, this room is special. And I know my daughter feels that too and will one day appreciate the love put into her little space.
Natalie was only four days old during this little shoot. So sweet!
Moma was tired but so over the moon happy!
The changing table was a find at a local antique shop. It was painted the craziest shades of turquoise and lime green. I found this darling color “Antoinette” by Annie Sloan and transformed it into this beauty.
I didn’t want to add a lot to the walls because I couldn’t stand to cover any of these gorgeous hand painted flowers. So I stuck with simple framed prints and let the flowers take center stage.
