I jumped the gun on our nursery whenever we finally knew we were having a girl! The Saturday following our anatomy scan, I was already clearing out our fourth bedroom (which had previously just been sleeping guests.) In the back of my mind, I was already sure I was having a girl and I'd had a vision for her room since day one. I wanted to give my sweet girl a simple nursery, with a real modern/boho feel, and minimal feminine touches.
As it turns out, some of my favorite parts of her room, are a few of the DIY pieces we put together. The eucalyptus wreath that sits above her crib was a weekend project that meant quite a bit to me. When Michael and I got married, I decided to do all the floral ourselves. I ordered bunches of Eucalyptus of all kinds and Thistle to adorn our tables- unaware of just how much I'd actually ordered. By the end of the night my friends and family were carrying out the leftover leaves by the armload. This wreath reminds me so much of that incredible night and all the love that surrounds our family, and our little girl.
The blanket ladder that sits in the corner was a fun and easy DIY project we did one afternoon with the help of Foxtail & Moss's Tutorial. I love the combination of the wood and copper. It's natural and simple, yet feminine!
I think eventually we'll add in a small end table and floor lamp in the rocking corner, once we really begin to utilize her room a bit more than I know we will in the beginning. Surprisingly, our home has no light-fixture hookups in any of the bedrooms. I found this a bit odd once we moved in, but knew this home was just a stepping stone until we could settle into our dream home. For now, we just fill our house with lamps and natural light!
I get so emotional thinking of our sweet girl in this room. I imagine her big brother rocking her, and reading to her by that bright window. I can't wait to see the bond they share. This new chapter of our lives seems to have come so quickly, and I know the years will pass by just as quick. I'm trying to soak in every moment and appreciate every little thing I can.
It's only a matter of days until she's here, and I just can't wait to experience the joy she'll bring to our lives.
