It has been close to 2.5 years since I first photographed my daughter’s nursery. I have been storing these photos on my desktop for so long and cannot believe I am just now sharing them. We moved over the summer, so this is no longer her nursery, sadly. We are now preparing our babies’ new shared nursery which is probably why I am so nostalgic about sharing her nursery now. A lot of love went into creating Scarlett’s feminine, garden feel, and beatrix and potter themed nursery. My husband painted her walls (Pink Damask by Benajmin Moore), painted that beautiful alphabet print, put her crib together, replaced a light fixture with a chandelier, helped turn her chair into a glider, and never said no to one idea I had in creating her nursery. My mom handmade all of Scarlett’s bedding, created the wreath above her changing table, and purchased the stuffed animals for her room. My Dad made her changing table station, her basket organizer (sadly not pictured, but here’s an instagram picture of it), and helped turn the ordinary chair into a glider. My cousin and daughters godmother painted her customized toy box, framed that sweet picture of Scarlett sleeping, and made a beautiful Beatrix and Potter painting (sadly not pictured, but here’s an instagram pic of it) for her room. I had every intention of posting these photos before she was born or shortly after and that never happened. Her nursery was complete when she was born, but was always a work in progress. My husband finished her alphabet painting when she was 3 months old and little touches to her room weren’t done until close to a year. At that point it just went to the back burner and I shared snippets on instagram every now and then. I am thrilled to finally be sharing her nursery with y’all though. It was my favorite design I’ve ever created and I’m so grateful to all the helping hands that made her nursery so beautiful. Her theme is a Beatrix & Potter and garden theme for the most part. I wanted to keep it somewhat gender neutral, feminine with soft touches of pink, and incorporated a whole lot of bunnies to make the garden theme stand out. Bunnies were my obsession when I was pregnant, so I knew that I wanted as many as I could fit in. I hope you enjoy these photos and may they inspire you in creating your own baby’s nursery 🙂
