Charlotte’s Nursery

In honor of our impending move, I wanted to share the cuteness that is Charlotte’s nursery. Granted, she hasn’t slept there one night yet (she’s currently in a cradle in our bedroom)…but it’s a fun spot for playing, reading and changing the baby.

A few things were important when I started putting everything together.

  1. Cost! I knew that we’d likely be moving this Fall, so I didn’t go all out with decor and spending. I used many things we already had (like our indestructible house plant, Ikea lamps and Bear painting) to add personality to the room. My greatest splurge was the Pottery Barn Kids curtains that I had my friend import from the USA and they were under $100. They were rose gold stars, what more count I want?!
  2. Color scheme. I’m a girly girl and even though I swore up and down that I was going “gender neutral” in my decor, I caved when I saw the pretty pink, cream and gold bedding. It added just a hint of sparkle without screaming GIRL! I kept the rest neutral; cream carpet, taupe and cream chevron chair, muted wall color.
  3. Small space. We converted our tiny upstairs office into the nursery, so there wasn’t a lot of space to work with. Thankfully, we had bookshelves already up which allowed us to free up a lot of ground space. I kept furniture to a minimum; crib, chair, change table and dresser. Having a small room forces me to keep it neat and tidy (especially when we do 4 outfit changes in a day).

So without further ado, here are my favorite parts of Charlotte’s Nursery!

A glider is a MUST in a nursery as you spend 95% of your time sitting in this chair, either feeding or rocking your baby. Make sure it reclines, and if you have room, get a footstool. This one was a gift from my parents from Wayfair. The pillow is available here & cloud blanket is from Amazon.

The shelves were already there, so I took advantage and used as storage and decor space. Most of the items were gifts, or re-purposed from other parts of the house. The polka dot boxes are from Babies R Us.
