Peter Pan & Greenery Nursery


Peter Pan was my favorite movie growing up, so I always knew that my first baby would have a Peter Pan-themed nursery. At our 20-week anatomy scan, we found out our baby had a congenital heart defect that would require open heart surgery in the first week of life. The nursery became my “happy place” where I could do something productive with my anxious energy and be excited for our baby despite the challenges we had ahead of us. We didn’t find out what we were having, so I kept it gender-neutral and used greenery/wood decor, which was loosely inspired by the “Lost Boys Hideout.” My favorite part is the vintage Peter Pan book collection that I acquired throughout my pregnancy through various thrift book websites; one of the books dates back to 1911. The other accent pieces were made by myself, a talented carpenter friend, or various Etsy shop owners. The leaf wall decals were purchased from an Etsy shop that makes beautiful watercolor decals. One of my favorite pieces of furniture is the tree stump storage ottoman that holds our baby’s stuffed animals. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
