When we found out we were having a little girl, one of the first things I thought about was how I was going to decorate her nursery. I knew I wanted the space to feel feminine and a little sophisticated but still youthful, and I had so much fun designing this space!
What makes this room even more special to me is that we didn’t know we would have a room just for her till about a month before she was born. We were in a two bedroom apartment, and we really needed to keep our guest bedroom since most of our family and friends live out of town, so it was going to become a joint guest room and nursery. I was going to make it work, but as you can image it wasn’t the ideal situation. When the Washington housing market stars aligned for us and we were able to buy a three bedroom home with a designated room for our baby, it was extra special.
We moved in a week before Charlotte’s due date. Jacob was a rock star dad and within that week removed the popcorn ceilings, painted the entire room (walls, ceiling, baseboards) and assembled all the furniture. He received major points from his very pregnant wife who was totally stressed out about, well everything. (New house, new baby, quite the combination.) Having Charlotte’s space completed definitely helped put my mind at ease.
I wanted the space to feel feminine and appropriate for a baby, but with a theme that could grow with her as she gets older. I chose pink walls, white furniture and gold accents, which I brought through with polka dot prints that keeps the space playful.
Our glider by Delta Children needs it’s own shoutout. I have spent many hours rocking with my little babe in it already and it is so comfortable! You can definitely sleep in it (and I have 🙂 ). I was astonished by the prices of most of the upholstered gliders I liked when I started shopping for our nursery decor, and they were on average my budget for the whole nursery, so that was a non-starter. I was very happy when I found the gliders by Delta Children because they had the look I wanted, were comfortable and a fraction of the price. (Only $329) I also highly recommend getting an ottoman as well. We didn’t have ours at first since it was out of stock but ordered it when it was available again and it is much easier to rock and relax with it. You will be spending a lot of time in your glider and rocker, so definitely find one that you love!
Charlotte’s nursery is absolutely my favorite room in the house and I cherish all the moments spent with my teeny babe in this space.
