A few months ago, in a week long series we did on nurseries, I shared this room with you. It was my daughter's nursery.
The first thing to change, which you will be seeing today, was an update in artwork and wall hangings. First up, the feature wall.
The invite kept the lavender elements in play, but added so many fun and whimsical colors. I quickly found Amy Butler fabric that worked well with it, which I also framed and mounted on the walls in different areas.
Next, I took out some of the baby pictures from the room and added more classic elements. I realized I wanted this to be a room to grow with my child, and since MANY more baby pictures are scattered throughout the house, they just weren't as necessary here. So, I added a little chair silhouette to a covered canvas. I also painted a simple plaque that reads "lullabye," which keeps a touch of the nursery feel, and is also a knickname my husband has for our daughter.
The final wall I have to show you is a shelf that is located on the other wall. I tried to keep the use of color going across the room. For this space I simply painted a little yellow canvas, framed one of my favorite magazine covers of all time, and tried to somewhat recreate Jen's (from tatertots and jello) famous rosette topiary.
And that was it! It is certainly not the world's more amazing makeover, and very incomplete, but it is feeling more and more like the little girl who belongs to it every day. I think anyone who has met her would agree, she is certainly the sweetest little spitfire your will ever meet. And every bit as over the top as the room she lays her head to sleep in every night.
I'll be linking to these parties this week, stop by and take a look.
