Nursery Progress

Nursery Progress


Hi, friends! Well, with the exception of a dresser and side table, Johanna’s nursery remains pretty empty. With a few registry items still yet to be purchased, and the rest of the items en route to our house, I thought I’d show you this mock-up of the nursery progress, or what I hope it will look like in the next month or so (don’t hold me to this exact design, though, because we know how the design process works… it always changes!).

1. Cross and Milagro Wall – I’m thinking South-American crosses, with a variety of colors, textures and materials. I haven’t purchased a single one yet, so we’ll see if I can get this together before Johanna is born.

2. Da Vinci Jenny Lind crib in white – To be honest, I really wanted this version from Land of Nod, but alas, it wasn’t in the budget.

3. Midcentury illustration print of Paris from Etsy – It’s not that I’m really in love with Paris, and certainly don’t want a themed room, but something about this illustration just seems to fit the nursery. I only wish it were poster-size. Maybe I could buy it and blow it up?

4. Midcentury table lamp from West Elm – I doubt I will be buying this exact lamp, but I love the pop of yellow that it provides. It really ties in the yellows from the gilt mirror and artwork. 

5. Blue Bear Pillow from Ferm Living

6. Mid-Century Modern side table – I picked this, along with a matching MCM dresser, up at a garage sale for $45, but here are similar pieces from West Elm (pictured) and Target.

7. Color Pop Floor Bin from Land of Nod

8. Alphablocks Canvas Bin from Unison Home

9. Color Pop Cube Bin from Land of Nod

10. Mid-Century Modern dresser – similar West Elm (pictured) and Target

11. Vintage Gilt mirror – I think I’m going to use one that was in our house growing up. This one is similar from 1st Dibs, although I’m pretty sure mine is from the 1970s, rather than the 19th century ;).

12. Regatta Poppy Crib Sheet from Unison Home

13. Vintage Woolen Mills camping blanket – For the nursery, there were very few things I was certain about from the get-go, but I knew that I wanted vibrant red to anchor the room. Specifically, I wanted a red blanket. After months of unsuccessful searching, I finally found this vintage fleece camping blanket at Round Top Texas Antique Weekend.

14. Cosgrove Glider and Ottoman from Land of Nod – Gosh, how I stressed over this decision. Gliders can be expensive, and I knew it would take up a great deal of visual real estate in the room, so I wanted it to be perfect. I finally landed on this glider that has a sort of midcentury, vintage library look to it. It only came in two color ways, and I went with navy simply for the fact that it wouldn’t show stains as easily.
