BABY ROOM REVEAL

I’m so excited to finally share the baby room with you today! I’ve been working on this room for several months, on top of the boy’s room (which you can see here if you missed it!), and I’m so happy with how it came together.

I wanted to create a really simple and peaceful nursery, and since already owned the gray rocker, the gray pouf, and the white and brown dresser from Foster’s nursery, I went with gray and white as my color palette. Since there’s very little color in the room, I wanted to add a lot of different textures and subtle patterns to keep the room visually interesting, so I chose this diamond patterned rug with a sheepskin rug layered over it, the water hyacinth basket, a white faux fur pillow (that’s unfortunately no longer available), some neutral blankets, a mirror (which also makes this tiny room feel bigger), a big tropical plant (a pop of green makes a room come alive!), and of course the stripes on the ceiling.

I’d seen stripes on the ceiling once a long time ago on Pinterest and thought it was such a good way to add some pattern in a unique way. The only bad part is that no one wants to paint the ceiling, let alone measure and tape it all off and then paint. So when I heard about Walls Need Love and their Easy Stripes, I knew it was the perfect solution. They’re vinyl strips that you can just stick on and cut down to size — no measuring, no paint fumes (which is perfect for pregnant mamas), and not permanent so they’re great for rental properties! I put these up by myself and although it took three or four stripes to get the hang of it, I got better and faster and had all of these up within a few hours. And I love how they really complete the room and add that unexpected but subtle pattern. They have different widths and they come in a ton of colors that you can see right here, but they also have tons of other decals including murals, maps, and more.

The only thing I wish the room had was a mobile over the crib. Since we have earthquakes here in California we didn’t want to hang any picture frames over the crib, so that space still looks a little empty. That amazing handmade felt ram’s head from Heart Felt Creations was a perfect addition to the little wall space, but I still think there needs to be something in the other wall above the crib, I just haven’t found anything I’ve loved or had the time to make one myself. Maybe one day!

I linked to everything in the room below, but if I missed something leave a comment!

    Where did you get your necklace? I am expecting our first baby and I would love to have something similar to that.

    What a lovely, calm room. We have this (very lightweight) sheep mobile in our daughter’s room and it would look great above your little guy’s crib. https://www.etsy.com/transaction/251288541

    Beautiful room! Can you share where the tower fan is from? I’ve been looking for one that’s safe for little fingers ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks!

    • Merrick says:

      It’s really old — we purchased it when our oldest was born. I’m pretty sure we bought it at Sam’s Club. The brand is Lasko if that helps you find one! xx

    Awesome room! Where is your necklace from? I’m assuming that each circle has each of your children’s initial on it right? I’ve been looking for something like that.

  9. Marie says:

    Is it the Malm 6 drawer dresser? Did you buy the dark wood and paint it white? Or buy the white wood and paint it dark? Looks great!

    • Merrick says:

      It was actually the white oak veneer. My husband had it before we got married so it’s super old ๐Ÿ™‚ I just used Behr paint and primer and painted both the white and the brown.

      • ck says:

        Do you happen to remember the name of the brown paint you used? I want to do something similar but I’m afraid I’ll choose the wrong color. Thank you!

      • Merrick says:

        I don’t remember — sorry! I’d recommend going to the hardware store and getting a few paint chips and then bring those home and decide against the lighting and other colors in your room. That’s what I did!

    Can you tell me where you purchased the NY and london art? I didn’t see it listed and curious to see more of it!
