Nursery Reveal

I am so excited to share our little one’s nursery with you all today! This was truly such a fun project to work on the past few months. I have spent hours in this room just sitting in the glider, folding her clothes, praying over the little lady she will become and envisioning how blessed life will be with her.

I personally love to mix prints and add splashes of color, but when it came to our little girl I wanted her to have just a really soft and delicate look in her nursery. I also know this room will get cluttered easily [hello toys, messes and burp rags thrown everywhere] so because of the smaller size, I went with really light tones so it doesn’t seem overwhelming. The paint color is Valspar Fair Madden and after a million different swatches, samples and pints of paint we purchased, I found this shade.

I think one of my favorite things about this room is how much my dad wanted to help with it! When I called him at work to tell him we were having a girl he cried and said he was thrilled because he raised girls so he knows how to be the perfect Papa to her! It was the sweetest thing in the world. He painted her nursery while we were away at fashion week. And when all the furniture came in he HAD to be the one to mount everything to the wall and hang everything. He went on a rant about he is an engineer and knows how to do everything extremely safe [code for better than Paul and I!]. 😉 But seriously, Paul and I joke that we hope the next people that buy our home have a little girl because this stuff is not coming down. haha.

It’s the best feeling in the world to watch your dad and your husband work together to help prepare a nursery for your little babe, so that was truly a gift I’ll always be thankful for.

Thank you all so much for your kind comments anytime I’ve snapped a little peek at her nursery, I hope you love it!


P.S. I want to also say, of course a pillow won’t be in bed with her when she sleeps! It was just sweet to keep out until she does sleep in her crib.

    This is adorable! And so thrilled that you know not to use bumpers in the crib–many people use them because they look cute, but it’s just NOT safe for the baby (regardless of what our parents did when we were little ones)! The room you created looks so welcoming and cozy, I’m sure she’ll love it!

  15. I love how Maxi’s nursery came together. So classic and elegant, but young and fresh at the same time 🙂

    My favorite elements of her nursery are the changing table/dresser (going to look into the ceh!), the wall color and the items styled on top of the side table. It all looks lovely!

    Best wishes!

    Hi Katey!
    What a gorgeous nursery!
    How do you like the Declan Glider from PB Kids? Also how tall are you, are you able to reach the floor while rocking/feeding?

      Hi Christina! I’m 5’3″ and my feet reach if I point them. I really like the glider but haven’t been too pleased with how the material and fabric has held up. We paid so much for the performance fabric and it has stained. Best, Katey
