A Project For
Owen's nursery is a mix of vintage and modern pieces. We incorporated as many meaningful items into the space as possible. His father and I had a great time putting together the room. (I did the planning, he did the work! ha) Not really, Momma helped as much as she could too. Many DIY projects were completed to add a special touch to the space, including converting an IKEA chair into a rocker/glider, DIY shelves, embroidered artwork, DIY curtains, and a few other projects.
Blogs such as Holly Mathis Interiors, Jones Design Company, and Honey and Fitz.

Go with what you love and make it a personal space. You spend so much time in the nursery you really want to love it. Also I was reluctant about adding a twin bed to the nursery but am so glad we did. It not only gives us an extra bed for company, but it also serves as a great place for Mom or Dad to relax while the other is rocking the baby.
