Well, now that I’m back to my 9-5 gig and missing my babies like crazy, I thought it would be fitting to share Mara’s nursery! Well, her side of the room, that is. In case it’s been too long, my son’s side of the room looks like this.
This room all started with world’s most stunning wallpaper by Ellie Cashman. Let’s all take a moment to recognize how painfully beautiful this wallpaper is…
It may sound silly, but in person this wallpaper is absolutely breathtaking. The wallpaper & installation was quite possibly the most expensive decor investment I’ve made to date, and let me assure you, I don’t regret one penny.
To make this room comfortable for both of my kids, we had to make a few adjustments to the furniture we were using. First, we had to downsize the dresser (from the vintage campaign dresser we previously had to this one similar to the West Elm Mid Century dresser) in order to fit the rocker in the corner. I couldn’t bare to part with the campaign dresser, so we are currently using it as a console table/storage solution behind our sectional.
I wanted to give Mara something special to mark her arrival. I’ve adored the handmade animal friends from Walnut Animal Society for quite some time, and when Lauren posted she was only going to sell a small batch of animals this past holiday season, I jumped on this rare opportunity. I don’t know if Lauren is planning to sell these in the future, but if you love them and want some for yourself, definitely try to contact her. These animal friends need to populate our planet!
I loved how this nursery space turned out, and can’t wait to see our little Mara bear grow up in this room!
