The baby's nursery palette and design inspiration evolved throughout my pregnancy. I couldn't wait to come up with a design plan and put the room together! I was happily pinning from the moment we found out we were pregnant :) From the very beginning, I was always drawn to gender neutral rooms and knew I wanted the room filled with warm greys. Once we found out we were having a girl, I desired to add a subtle feminine touch to the room while still keeping with the neural palette. Not being a huge pink lover, I decided to incorporate the beloved color coral into the palette. Here is the initial nursery mood board inspiration I created Baby H Treasure Board Inspiration
I am a big lover of all things rustic, distressed, and natural. And I'm completely open to incorporating eclectic and interesting finds as long as the pieces all flow together. I like a clean and simple look but am also a firm believer in the concept that the details make the design. I find beauty in the details and love creating interesting vignettes throughout the rooms I decorate to create my art.

I love a lot of the little vintage details in the room. For instance, my great grandmother made me the colorful Ferris Wheel before I was born and it now sits on my baby's shelf in her room. There is also a small Jesus key that is pinned to the turquoise fabric heart that hangs from the elephant as you enter her room. My dad wore this pin on his wedding day. It also inspired the name and logo for my business, Treasure in the Detail. These simple yet extremely special details are what "make the room" in my opinion.
Don't rush through the process! Enjoy it. Seek out unique pieces and the good deals...even if it takes a bit longer. If you have special pieces from your own past that you can incorporate into the room, do it! You and your baby will love looking at them as you spend time rocking and spending time together in his/her room.
