So since Zoe has been getting more and more active and creative, I decided to update her room to make it more fun and toddler friendly.
My favorite addition to the space is the playhouse canopy from Land of Nod. Zoe is obsessed and it’s now our favorite spot to cozy up and read a good book.
You might notice I switched out the rug, FYI cotton rugs with kids are a nightmare to clean.
This one is a little on the rough side and it came a little damaged, so I ended up getting an incredible deal on it thanks to Overstocks amazing customer service. So I’m keeping it for now because I love the print. I plan to get a larger sheepskin to go over it instead of the two small ones since Zoe loves anything and everything soft and furry.
To free up some more space we moved the crib to the other side where the dresser/changing table used to be. And since we still weren’t ready to give up the changing pad we moved it to the ikea bookcase.
I also made a couple changes to the gallery wall. The owl print is by Kelli Murray, her work is amazing.

I’m still so in love with this glider, and of course the cuddles that come with it.
With Zoe’s book collection growing daily I needed a better storage solution. I’ve always loved the Ikea ledge book walls and now she has her very own!
I had so much fun rearranging and decorating her room and I’m so happy my little client loves it too!
I’m so excited to share Zoe’s nursery with you, each time I walk into this space it makes me so happy.
Her nursery turned out exactly how I wanted it to. A space that was peaceful for a baby but could also be a space she could grow up in without having to completely redecorate.
And it of course had to have a lot of style so mommy could enjoy it as well!
The “For Like Ever” print is one of my favorites and seriously makes the room.
Don’t you think?

Both the window and closet drapes I bought at Ikea and embellished with grosgrain ribbon and pom pom trim. I’m obsessed and of course love the fact that they were super inexpensive.

Today I’m 14 weeks, woo hoo!
26 more weeks to go, oh lord…
One of the many things I look forward to on this prego journey is finding out the sex of our little beeb.
I’m so impatient!
Especially since it’s holding me back from decorating the nursery.
So while waiting semi-patiently, I decided to create a couple of inspiration boards.
Love the soft grays and white, with pops of gold, peach and pink.
I’m loving these vintage airplanes and the simplicity of this room.
I’m crossing my fingers that in 2 weeks I’ll know which board I’m going with. Yay! Can’t wait!
Last night my biological clock was ticking once again. I was up really late browsing cribs for my future babies nursery. I just can’t get enough of these amazing cribs they have out now. The design world had definitely changed since I was a baby.
My original favorite was the Jenny Lind crib. It’s seriously such a classic piece. Love it.
But more and more I find myself drawn to the more modern and clean lines of these cribs.
Ray Crib by Muu $795
Sparrow Crib by Oeuf $730
Classic Crib by Oeuf $940
Skylar by Pottery Barn $799
Modo by Babyletto $380
Bam by Argington $585
All of the above cribs have the option to be converted into a toddler bed, which makes them worth the price tag, right?
The Ikea Gulliver crib would definitely be the least expensive option. But I don’t know how I feel about Ikea and their quality. Not to mention their clumsy installation directions.
There are so many to choose from I don’t know how I’ll ever make a decision. I think when it comes down to it, I’ll have to base my decision on price. Even though I’m loving the designs by Oeuf.
And just for fun here are some gorgeous WAY out of budget cribs.
Ok are you on crib overload now? sorry about that.
Look out for a post on strollers next…oh no!
Can’t wait until I get preggers!
