Sweet P's Nursery











Welcome to the room I frequent regularly. Welcome to Presley's nursery!

While pregnant, I had several people ask what the theme or colors of Presley's room would be, and the answer never became clearer than "No theme. All colors. The furniture is espresso finish, if that makes a difference." It was hard for me to commit to something that would be so definite like an accent wall or a purple, white, and gold scheme. I wondered if I'd dislike the room months down the road or if it wouldn't fit her personality. Instead of creating a Pinterest board and raiding home decor stores for just the right shade of blush or turquoise, we bought what we liked and assumed it would all come together.

Her room is riddled with memories already.

Cards from her baby shower
Books from my childhood
Her first sonogram at 8 weeks
Her prints
Several special, personalized gifts from family and friends
A book box filled with notes of advice and encouragement from her baby shower

We left some empty spaces on the walls for photos of her. I'll get to those before I return to work (I hope). So this is it. This is where I nurse her in the middle of the night; where I whisper to her; where her dad makes her float through the air to calm her fussy fits; where we kiss her endlessly and marvel at our best DIY project ever.

So sweet, Linds! The blanket from your sis is so pretty. And I love seeing the burlap banner hung. We are excited to hang ours once our sweet girl is here :)

I love that you didn't pick a theme like butterflies or zoo animals. I love a more classic look.

It's beautiful! It looks so cheerful and comfortable. Plus neutral walls will grow with her, assuming y'all stay in that house awhile.
