Yay! The day is finally here. I’m so excited to share Kingsley’s nursery with you. We moved into our new home two weeks ago, and before we unpacked the dishes in the kitchen, we were already installing wallpaper. Do I recommend moving while eight months pregnant? Absolutely not. But, ya live and ya learn! And with that, let’s take a tour, shall we?I love where this room sits in our house. You can catch a glimpse of these X O prints going up and down the stairs. It’s the smallest room in the house, but it has the biggest personality. I couldn’t be more thrilled with our wallpaper choice. From the quality of the paper to the finished look—it’s made a wallpaper-enthusiast out of me, and I’m currently narrowing down some options to dress our older daughter Bauer’s walls next!
That rug. Gorgeous, right? What you can’t see in the picture? How soft it is! When I can’t find our goldendoodle, Dumbledore, I know exactly where to look.
I’m so in love with Kingsley’s crib and sheet combo. The Tatum Crib is simple and clean—throw in the Yvette Baby Bedding and it’s perfection. We have her bumper set aside for when she’s a little older.
To mix things up (and keep the sweet pea safe), we opted to display the frames to the left of her crib, which meant the right side of her crib was begging for some love (pun intended). How fun is the Neon Love Wall Art?! It looks great on or off and has that “funky” factor I was after for this room. The Faux Potted Fiddle Leaf Tree adds a natural element to the room, and I’ve already decided we need one for the guest room.
Funny story about the mirror. We kind of sort of took it from her big sister’s room. Isn’t that what sisters are for? But fear not, Bauer’s room got a gold makeover and a mirror to match. But, this just proves that the Silver Leaf Petal Mirror is a big hit and here to stay. It’s like it was made especially for this room. It hangs over the dresser, which is dressed with some of my favorite details from the lamp to the Pom Pom Storage Bin.
Wrapping around the room is our must-have glider and more pillows from the Emily + Meritt Collection. I’m thrilled with how the shelving came out—we swapped the white shelves I originally had on hand for these natural wood ones. They have a lot of competition with the wallpaper on the other side of the room, but they hold their own. The pink Converse shoes were my first purchase months ago when we found out we were adding another little girl to our family, the Crowned Flamingo is a nod to her regal name (Kingsley) and the letterboard is a fun creative outlet for yours truly (and great for monthly and milestone photos).
And last, but certainly not least (because I totally regret not having one of these for her big sis), is the Claudia Toy Chest. You can never have enough storage with little ones, but I dare you to find storage this pretty!
It’s a little bittersweet closing this design chapter, but who am I kidding? Bauer is two years old now—time for a big girl room transformation! And with that, I’ll end with this—behind every newborn, is a pants-less toddler begging for attention.
Thank you, Pottery Barn Kids, for making this such a fun room to dream up and bring to life! Off to love on my babies in this pretty space.
This space was a labor of love for the entire fam:
- To my sweet husband, who didn’t bat an eye when the boxes kept showing up at our old house, the house we were trying to de-clutter and sell.
- To my brother and sister-in-law, who came to our rescue and stored our entire nursery in their hall closet during our few months in between houses.
- To my parents, who helped me mount shelves, arrange décor and hang the chandelier. It was a special and crazy few days—my Dad on a ladder with Bauer always two steps behind him reaching for the hammer (gasp) while Kingsley supervised from her crib.
