I’m 38 weeks and counting down the days until my baby girl arrives! Believe it or not, I’m actually looking forward to labour pains to commence, just so it means that she can make her big debut. Hospital bags are packed, nursery is set up, now all we need is a baby. And so we wait, as patiently as possible, although, “How to induce labour naturally” is probably my top google search at the moment.
In the meantime, I’m delighted to share my nursery with you all.From the get go, I wanted to create a gender neutral space, with gender specific accents – as a result, the paint and furniture are gender neutral. I decided to go for the ever popular grey paint in the nursery, with a tree decal on the accent wall. The pink leaves are stickers which can be removed if I ever needed to change the tone of the room.
When I learned I was expecting, I immediately fell in love with the Colette Tufted collection from Restoration Hardware. I love the tufted details on the crib and of course, Restoration Hardware’s signature rustic finish. I chose to go with the Antique Grey Mist colour as I found it was the most gender neutral option.
The glider and ottoman set is from an Oakville based nursery furniture wholesaler, Rooms To Grow.
Pink, girly details were added throughout the room to bring the whole nursery together. The bedding set is the Carter’s Heart of Gold set from Babies R Us. The set includes a crib fitted sheet, crib skirt and comforter. The blanket, diaper changing pad, mobile and heart wall accent are sold separately.
I added some other thoughtful details throughout the room. As space is minimal, I ordered floating shelves from Wayfair which allows me to accent the room, without taking up any space.
No baby girl’s nursery is complete without a pretty chandelier. I searched high and low for a chandelier, and the best value was definitely this adorable chandelier from none other than Home Depot.
When you enter the room, your sight lines go straight to the large window. I dressed the window with linen black out curtains from Pottery Barn in a soft pink. I’ve been advised by other mothers that black out curtains are key in ensuring the baby’s sleep doesn’t get disturbed as you don’t want outdoor light seeping through the curtains. My husband and I absolutely fell in love with the bow details.
Although she won’t be playing with this rocker yet, I just couldn’t resist this adorable unicorn rocker from Restoration Hardware.
Last but not least, as mentioned before, this is the smallest bedroom in our house and I really wanted to make the best use of space. Since we couldn’t cram a lot of furniture in the room, I leveraged the space in our spacious closet by installing a closet organizer from Rona.
What do you think of the nursery? Any favourite elements? Would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!
