So excited to share my favorite room in the entire house! Ava’s nursery is where I spend majority of my time in now that our sweet baby is here.
I had so many of you asking to see the nursery so I decided to post about it, linking some of the items to help anyone decorating one of their own. I always had a vision for a very simple, light and airy room. I’m drawn to Scandinavian, mid-century modern style which helped me pull all the nursery decor together. And being on a budget, I found ways to make it happen without breaking the bank.
We are lucky to have a pretty spacious room that we turned into the nursery. When we first moved into the house, we painted this room a darker gray color with a lavender accent wall. Even though it was the perfect color for a girl’s nursery, I wanted the room to have a lighter feel. I’m grateful my amazing husband was willing to repaint a perfectly good room! But boy am I glad he did, because it made all the difference in the world. We went with the color Silent White by Behr, which has a hint of gray but gives the room a fresh and clean feel.
Ahh llamas! They are my favorite! We live next to an alpaca farm and the owner recently opened a small boutique. I stopped by one day and purchased a few stuffed animals that I thought would work great for Ava’s nursery. This large one is actually from Walmart. We stumbled upon it one day when weren’t even looking. Let’s hope Ava likes llamas as much as her mama. 🙂
I wanted to keep this corner of the room very simple. The rocking chair is from Wayfair and everything else for the most part was purchased from Ikea. We are grateful to have friends and family that showered us with some of the bigger items which was a huge blessing that we will be forever grateful for. The Malm dresser from Ikea was very affordable, and the nice thing about it is that it can be fastened to the wall, making it tilt proof for older babies.
One thing we splurged on was the shaggy border rug which was definitely worth the money. Even though the room is carpeted, it felt too large and empty without the rug. This rug was the perfect choice for Ava’s room as it tied everything together.
The only thing that is missing in this corner is a side table next to the rocking chair. I have this one in mind from Wayfair but it’s been out of stock for quite some time so I’m patiently waiting for the white one to become available again.
Ahh this mirror…I’ve been eyeing it since before I was even pregnant. The wood tone goes perfectly with the crib and adds a nice warm tone to the room.
I’m in love with the Marley Convertible Crib from Wayfair. It was the first thing we got for the nursery and then just made sure everything else matched it’s Scandinavian style.
I knew something was missing above the crib so I spent quite a bit of time trying to find the perfect item to fill this space. Immediately, I was drawn to these flower wreaths from Etsy. But there was no way I was spending that much money so I decided to make something similar myself. I found some metal wreaths online and bought greenery from Hobby Lobby. A few minutes of assembly and they were done!
I probably spend the most time in this little corner, snuggling my baby girl. This Mellinger rocking chair is actually super practical for nursing and rocking the baby to sleep.
This corner was put together with things I already owned. The white canopy and the chairs were purchased for photoshoots and so I figured they’d make a nice addition to the nursery. I’m a huge fan of these mini mid century modern chairs and will one day find a table to match so Ava has a place for crafts and coloring. I envision this corner filled with toys in the future, but for now, I’ll enjoy the clean and tidy room!
