The nursery

here are some pics of veda's nursery. this room used to be our shared office/storage space. the room has only one window which faces an air shaft and doesn't let in much light. originally we painted it a deep chocolate brown, which made the room have a cozy den like feeling. now that it's a nursery, we decided to paint the walls a clean white, making the room feel fresh and light and much more of a sanctuary...
we we're lucky enough to be handed down the stokke crib from my boss. the LOVE print above the crib is from bold and noble; the bird mobile is from petit collage; one of my favorite things in the room- the elephant hamper was a gift from my aunts ♥
the changing table is from ikea, though i changed the knobs out with some vintage yellow ones i found on ebay. the heart print is from rifle; the sunflower print is by spread the love; the turtles were a gift from my sister in law; the bear is by kuma; the bunny is by sleepy king; and the vintage blocks are from scout dry goods
we needed to keep some sort of desk for us to work out of, so we got this small one from ikea that we share;  the print above the ikea desk is from fine little day; the grano glider recliner was a gift from my husband's family. it is the most comfortable chair in our home!; the apple pillow and the giraffe lamp are from jonathan adler; the lamp is vintage and the blanket was a labor of love by mama!
the wire baskets we're an idea i totally borrowed from another blogger, as well as the inspiration for the doll on the bottom right that i made; the doll on the left was custom made by warm sugar; and the doll on the top right is by lucky boy sunday
i lined the wall behind the bookcase with vintage wallpaper; there are prints by ashley g. and dutch door press as well as fifi lapin; the elephant is from abc carpet; the monkey is from acorn- as well as the blue wooden cloud blocks. 

putting the room together was a nice way to feel connected to the little being that was growing inside of me.. thinking of her playing in here, sleeping and dreaming in here... now, i take veda around the room and show her all of the little things that we picked out just for her, hoping that she will enjoy it as much as we do! ♥
