My husband and I wanted to create a room that would grow with Cooper and was comfortable, especially given he would be born in a pandemic, we knew there would be lots of time at home.
We’d spent the past 10 years in New York City so we wanted something modern with industrial touches but still cozy for a newborn. A space that was inviting, slightly moody, personalized and clean.
I started with the crib, the Million Dollar Baby Abigail crib in iron, then chose a blue velvet rocker, and color scheme evolved from there. We used mostly blacks, grays and blues with little pops of natural color in greenery, to keep some fresh life in the room as well as the natural baskets and a bright cream rug so it wasn’t too dark. Our changing table baskets and hamper add a boho touch and are pieces we can use elsewhere in our home when and if he outgrows them. One of the best pieces is the Keekaroo changing pad, it is a dream to only have to wipe it down and not have extra changing covers adding to our laundry!
We wanted to add special pieces so we handmade the letter ledge ourselves to hang over the crib as well as the shelves above the changing table.
Those handmade pieces are my favorites, also the knit hockey skates we used for our baby announcement as well as the wooden plaque with his name, both from Etsy.
