For the first time, I had the chance to design a completely new room and loved every minute of it. Different from rearranging a living room or updating bedroom furniture, I knew this new space would require my full attention as I was building it from scratch. Finding neutral pieces that were both functional and adorable wasn’t as easy as I thought, but the hunt was definitely fun and I’m pretty happy with the way everything turned out.
Because I already had some ideas in mind and friends + family gave us such beautiful gifts, the details were a breeze. The tassel mobile above was one of my favorite finds on Etsy (I wrote about Fleur Lux‘s shop here). But besides the cute lamb print by Sharon Montrose of The Baby Animal Print Shop and the Eiffel Tower piece from Target, most of the artwork is my own.
As for the furniture, Baby Fisher’s crib is known as The Hudson by Babyletto. I was immediately drawn to its simple, modern lines, tying in with the rest of our furniture throughout the apartment. The changing table is an antique campaign-style dresser which I’ve actually had for years; the Dutailier glider was a Craigslist steal, and the wooden block end table was found on sale at Homegoods. The giant giraffe was a no-brainer from Pottery Barn Kids and the sheepskin rug is an Ikea favorite. I think it’s safe to say that big brother Obi approves.
Although the nursery turned out a little more feminine than I had originally imagined, I can always incorporate some boyish accents should we have a little mister join our family. Either way, Baby Fisher gets a spectacular view which mom and dad are a little jealous of…
