Asher’s Natural Explorer Nursery

I had no real plan for this nursery when I started out beyond liking gray and orange.  The first item I purchased was the cow rug and the rest of the room kind of evolved from there.
Many items in the room were repurposed.  For example, the dresser and chest were my mom’s when she was a little girl, just repainted with new hardware. Likewise, the suitcases were already in the guest room. I had actually just moved them out of the way when we were positioning the crib and they ended up staying there.
We had originally planned built in bookcases but as my due date neared and my nesting reached critical levels, we opted for the plumbing pipe shelving for the sake of speed.  Once installed though, I couldn’t be happier with the choice.

Naia’s Naturalistic Nursery

We wanted something clean and simple with just pops of colors against browns and whites. When we found out we were having a girl, we tried to stick to pinks and greens. We wanted the room to feel organic and have touches of nature with just small hints of whimsy. Since this room is our Master Retreat, we added french doors to create some privacy and a sound barrier for Naia. We also added built-ins around the fireplace so Naia could have a “closet” and room for storage.
