I am so very excited for this post today. Not only is it my first actual “room reveal,” its the reveal of our sweet baby girl’s nursery! At the end of this post you’ll also find links to five amazing and inspirational nurseries created by several of my favorite blogger friends. Its a nursery extravaganza!
Now onto our cottage inspired girl’s nursery! I knew, once we found out we were having another girl, that I wanted to use colors similar to Ava’s room to keep things cohesive upstairs while taking the design in a slightly different direction. (You can see my original idea board for the nursery here!) I ended up settling on a general cottage/vintage theme loosely inspired by this version of Anne of Green Gables. My hope is that this nursery captures Anne’s sweet spirit, sense of whimsy and wonder while channeling the homey feeling of Green Gables itself.
Enough talking. Lets go on in!
My amazing hubby did a faux shiplap treatment on three of the walls with vinyl plank flooring which added instant cottage charm! The color is Watery by Sherwin Williams and it may be my new favorite blue-green. I’m planning on doing a before and after post with a full source breakdown and details so keep an eye out for that. Most things will be linked at the end of the post, though (affiliate links are provided).
This sweet little print was a Goodwill find. I gave it a quick update by painting the frame and mat white, and voila! It fits perfectly in with the cottage theme.
All of the big items (and most of the smaller ones) were used in Ava’s nursery. I love that both of my girls will have the same pieces in their nurseries. It makes their rooms seem that much more special.
Almost all of the wall decor came from Hobby Lobby. I was so lucky to find pieces that matched these sheets from Target perfectly!
This dresser was my mom’s when she was a little girl, then mine, then Ava’s and now its new baby girl’s! Incorporating old, family pieces like this along with new items is my favorite thing to do when decorating. It creates such a story and makes the space feel unique and collected.
I found that Anne of Green Gables print on Etsy and thought it was just perfect for this room. The other print was in Ava’s nursery and the little carousel horse belonged to my mom. Those dresses were a gift from a family friend when I was pregnant with Ava. They came from an estate sale in Belle Meade, and I love imagining the history that goes with them.
So many of the little details in this room hold a special place in my heart. Glimpses of my favorite books, items that were passed down to me from my mom, things that were Ava’s, vintage pieces that Micah and I bought and saved for our future children, things that were handmade or gifted to us by friends. Lots of love went into crafting this nursery for our darling little one.
I think its safe to say that this nursery turned out to be everything that I imagined and more. Its peaceful, whimsical and oh so cozy. I keep finding Ava in here putting her baby dolls to sleep in the crib, so I think she approves too. Clearly our pup, Ella, gives her stamp of approval as well. All we need now is baby girl!
