Here it is….
Baby Girl’s Nursery!
We wanted to create a space for our daughter that was as quirky as it was bright. A place that fostered curiosity. A room that felt like home.
Nothing princessy. No pepto-bismol pink. No wall decals. None of the nursery things that traditionally make me want to gouge my eyes out. [No offense to any nurseries out there, we just wanted to do her room in a style that suited our family.]
We decided to keep the furniture modern: Oeuf Sparrow Crib & Changing Table and the Monte Luca glider & ottoman [Did you know, that it is possible to be completely infatuated with a rocking chair? It is. Simon literally can’t get me out of this bad boy!] We picked up all these pieces from the delightful Bucktown boutique, Grow, which I highly recommend if you are in the market for such a thing.
Oh, we found a spot for the abacus
and her reading stool!
We kept the furniture neutral and added pops of color with the art & accents.

Instead of a proper crib set, we paired a mismatched fitted sheet and skirt from Dwell Studio separate sets and topped it off with a handmade granny blanket ordered from Etsy.
Of course, we had to add a few critters to the crib. Buddies for our Baby: Love Bunny, Elmer the Elephant and our Ugly Doll, Benny.
We loaded our West Elm leaning book shelf with treasures. The 8” dunny from daddy, baby’s first purse from mommy, a gorgeous pink baby Matta from blog-aunt Brooke [!!!], and Paris blocks from great-aunt Gina!
And while were initially on the hunt for an alphabet print for the nursery, when we stumbled on this spray painted Periodic Table of Elements, it felt like a fun alternative, right? We hung a felted wool mobile above the piece and when the balls catch a breeze, they look a lot like atoms swirling around the table.
Exactly the sort of nerdiness Baby Girl’s room needed!
This nursery may just be one little room in our tiny apartment, but it is a space filled with endless possibilities and place for our daughter to grow!
