The perfect gender neutral and modern boho nursery
And on the 12th day.. before Advent.. Momma Elf was busy preparing the Advent Calendars and Gift Boxes to kick off the season on December 1st! I always begin with the sweetest seasonal pajamas, new ornaments based on new interests, seasonal books, and a few extra special items to add in some extra Christmas Magic 💫
I wanted to create a space that will grow with my son through many stages of life, not just the baby stage. We used a hand-me-down crib that was gifted to us by family, shelves were made by his grandpa, initial canvas was a DIY project by me, dresser was a clearance find at a local furniture store, mirror is from HomeGoods, rug is from RugsUSA, and glider is from target. I feel like we delivered a room that he will love for years to come!
Space and space exploration have a special place in both my and my husband’s hearts. Our wish was to share that with our child as soon as he enters the world and what better way to do it than to bring space into his nursery.
This is a DIY project, with the wallpaper and knot pillows sourced from Etsy, the furtniture set from Little Guy Comfort, the shelving and rug from Crate Kids and the handwoven rug from Love44. The glider is from Babyletto. The wall hanger is from West Elm. The window treatment is from the Shade Store. The wall, ceiling and trim paint is from Clare.
The nursery is the perfect space for our son – both are a labor of love and dedication towards building a thriving and loving family together.
My favorite color is pink! I was on a pink and gold kick and really wanted to create something special for my little girl on the way.
My husband and I love DIY…we found this dresser at the goodwill…sanitized, sanded and painted for the perfect pink dresser. Our floor lamp was another free find. We were able to refurbish with some good spray paint.
This particular crib style is discontinued, but I linked a similar option.
I knew I wanted a neutral nursery with pops of muted colors here and there, that way it could easily be altered to fit her personality and interest as she grows.
I started with picking the white color for the wall and then picked the rug which is from Boutique rugs. I wanted to make sure I got something soft that would not be rough on her little body. Start with the bigger items first then move to smaller accent pieces. The crib came next purchased through project nursery, I stayed with a natural wood color so that it could be used for future babies! After the crib I picked the cream piper chair to match. Her dresser was a rattan thrift find that we repurposed and painted white. I suggest a dresser with many large drawers. After that I picked pieces such as the light fixture, end table, mirror and laundry basket all in rattan, natural wood colors.
her scent colors are dusty rose, blush pink and green.
