Blush, Gold & Girly Nursery Reveal
I dreamed about how we were going to decorate Nova's nursery before I even knew that she was a she. Some women daydream about large weddings, but I dream about home decor. Nova's nursery is a mix of super girly accents, vintage furniture and of course- a lot of gold! Because my husband and I co-sleep with Nova, her crib space for now is not being utilized. Lord knows I cannot wait for the day when I can transition her to her bed for at least 45 minutes to have some alone time with my husband in our own bed. For now, her room is simply a place where we change her diaper while daydreaming about the day she will let us put her to sleep in there.
For her crib, I knew I wanted something that was simplistic and grey to offset the other colors in the room. The crib we actually went with was ordered from Amazon (gotta love Prime) and was under $100.00. I didn't do any of the love labor putting it together, but my husband said it was fairly easy to construct.
The changing table/ dresser was a Craigslist find for literally $50. I love the dresser because it is the perfect size for the room and the vintage design of it really adds to the character of the room. To coordinate with the rest of the accents in the room, my husband removed the existing drawer pulls and spray painted them gold to match! I love the way it came out and it is incredibly helpful to have her clothes, diapers and supplies all in one space.
The paint colors in the room are Cherry Blossom by Benjamin Moore and Slate Black by Behr (accent wall). Cherry Blossom is literally one of the best blush paint colors I have ever used because gives off such a warm tone that is not too pink or too pale. The accent flower wall is covered in wall decals from Urban Walls. These decals (though tricky to install) added an amazing floral theme to the room without being too "babyish."
All of the additional accents in the room were either thrifted or DIY projects over the course of 4 months. My most favorite decor piece in the room has to be the hand painted wood art that my husband made. Framed with stained plants and hand-painted, the flower wall mural perfectly matches with the rest of the nursery and is a one of a kind piece that I know we will cherish for years to come. The pink, white and grey flowers throughout the room were actually a DIY that my husband and I hand made one afternoon with card stock, scissors and a hot glue gun. Paper flowers (though time consuming to create) are so easy to make and help to really tie the floral elements of the room together.
