Baby Talk: Nursery Tour

Yay! It’s finally here! 😊

M’s nursery was not finished before she arrived. Everyone told us it’d be fine because she wouldn’t use it right away. They were right…

…but we DID end up moving her in around week 3 or 4. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends moving baby to his/her own room between 6 months and one year. Turns out 3 weeks was the magic number for us. I mean, who wouldn’t want to sleep in this room? It’s the best decorated space in our house! (We have a video monitor so I can see her at all times & our pediatrician was a-ok with the decision. Ok, I’m done justifying this now.)

A few important notes…
My pictures are not professional by any means- lol.
I’m going to link the stuff pictured but nothing is affiliated.

We went with navy blue paint & one “wooden” wall. It’s actually laminate flooring. A family friend/contractor did it. We wanted a very subtle outdoorsy vibe in the nursery.

The dog pictures were taken during our maternity photo shoot by Jackie Beachy Photography. Obviously we’re in love with them. Our name art is from Hickory Hollow Designs!

The curtains aren’t blackout (I got these blinds to go behind them) but they matched the room so well and were so cheap, I didn’t care…

I love her little crib set up. Simple and clean but very personalized.

I’m also so so so in love with her changing table gallery wall. She loves it, too. She looks up at the wall and smiles while I change her. I love that.

We have two trash cans because we cloth diaper. The large one is for diapers, the small one is for trash, and then a laundry basket on the right.

The frog is a humidifier but it’s old and not great after 6+ years of hard water and minimal maintenance. We just purchased this humidifier for her room and I love it already!

This was a splurge gift from my in-laws. It was way too much money for a bookshelf but I’m so glad they got it for us. I love it.

Some day, before I start selling/packing up the too-small outfits and toys, I’m going to count how many fox items M has…

I love M’s room. I love that it’s slightly feminine but with dark colors- especially the orange & blue together.

I realized I forgot to photograph the closet after I took the pictures & started editing. It’s very neat and organized in there… so I think it might get a post of its own. I’m strangely proud of that space. Haha.

  1. We have very similar name art. I love it.
    Also, those blackout shades. I didn’t have them last summer and struggled for months (because I didn’t want to put up extra real curtains in our rental). I got these paper ones and they are AMAZING. They’re completely worth it, especially if you put nice curtains over top of them). That bookshelf is a perfect splurge. I haven’t seen anything else like it!

      I love the name art & the book shelf, too. They 100% make the nursery. I love it.
      I’m SO glad to hear that. Right now I have a towel in the window behind the curtains. It is NOT working. Of course the blinds are not considered essential so I’ve been waiting weeks to get them from Amazon. Hopefully they arrive next week!

    Her room is too cute!!! I love the navy wall. I had planned on doing one in my office, but ended up just using the dark grey paint from Zoe’s room in here because its what was around the house and I couldn’t take another day of the state of this room haha. The tree bookshelf is the cutest!!! Definitely an impact piece and totally worth it! Love the name art too!


    1. Audrey says:

      Thank you!! I’m a huge fan of her room! We need to think about and attack every room like that in our house. Haha!

    I love her walls; that wood accent wall is such a cute idea. And I think the foxes all over are so cute. That bookshelf is just awesome!! What a fantastic gift. I’m a little jealous to be honest. I want a tree book case. 😉



    1. Audrey says:

      Thank you! We love love love that wooden wall. So many foxes… hahaha. The tree bookcase is the cutest- my in laws are fantastic!

    I absolutely love it. I love gone are the days of pink only for girls / blue only for boys… I love M is going to go to bed seeing her fur siblings over her bed too .
    I want one of those wood signs with MY name on it 🙂


    1. Audrey says:

      I agree completely!
      Those pictures will have to do until Bristol is allowed to actually sleep with her. Once that gate is open I guarantee she’ll sleep in/on/under M’s bed every night. LOL


  5. Wow!!!! What an adorable and sweet nursery!! I live for room reveals, so I’m very excited you shared. I especially love the blue and orange color combo! Baby girl has the perfect room to grow up in!


    1. Audrey says:

      Thank you! I love the colors in there. I’m not a girly girl… I don’t know what I’ll do if she ends up being one! Haha! Fortunately her aunt is very girly and glittery and pink so they can bond over it 😉 Haha!


  6. Ashley says:

    I definitely get the outdoor vibe! The whole room is so beautiful! That tree book shelf is so unique and I love how modern her name sign looks! Did you know the gender before you had her?


    1. Audrey says:

      Thank you!
      We did! Around week 16 or 17 we found out we were having a girl. It took a few weeks after that to figure out a name, though. Haha!


  7. Amanda says:

    Soooo cute! I love it! And we moved R into her room after 1 week, so you don’t need to justify anything to me lol! 😉


    1. Audrey says:

      Thank you!
      Man… things got so much better for us after we moved her into her room. I started getting a handle on the ppd and everything became a little more clear. And she started sleeping much much better.
