Eila's Nursery Tour

Eila's nursery is practically complete. Anything that might be missing is certainly not an essential item. Even since these pictures were taken, we have added a diaper pail, changing pad and a few minor touches. My strategy was this: settle on a color palette. I loved the purple and pink colors that Pantone came out with for 2016 colors of the year, rose quartz and serenity. Eila's nursery is mostly the rose quartz, gray and white. She does have a few items of serenity purple shade in here, though I think her nursery at my mom's house will pick up more of that. From there, I thought how do I make this a soothing and stimulating place for a baby, a tolerable place for me to be in and pick up both Lucas and my personalities in the process? The result: the images below.

My mom was kind enough to buy Eila's nursery furniture. This crib is from Pottery Barn, the curtains and from West Elm and that hamper is personalized from Pottery Barn
Her bedding is from Oilo, a company I found via Nordstrom and bloggers. The print is called Capri.

Before the changing pad came in, I didn't really have a place for her shoes {still don't, really}, so I just displayed them on her changing table. You may giggle to yourself that babies don't keep shoes on, but I'll be happy if I get 5 minutes with these on her. 

This picture shows a bit of both of our personalities. Lucas brought his love for Jason Isbell into our marriage. The first weekend we hung out (Music Fest), we saw him play. Subsequently, we have been to two other concerts. Not only does Lucas love Jason Isbell, he is an avid collector of cool music posters. His mom framed these for Christmas, and I was thankful that there was enough pink/mauve to incorporate them into Eila's room. Also pictured is a record player from Urban Outfitters, my Mumford & Sons record, and a chalkboard from Michael's. The dresser is from West Elm, and we haven't decided whether or not to hang Audrey yet. 

I had no idea how to organize her dresser, so I started googling and asking my new mom friends. This one is pants, hats/gloves/socks/bandannas. You can't tell by looking, but they are clustered by size as well. Three other drawers are organized by size. For example, the first drawer is Newborn - 3 months and contains layettes, pajamas and onesies. Another drawer is 3-6 months. Another is 9-12. The bottom two drawers are blankets, cloths and towels. I may end up changing stuff around as I figure out what is practical, but I thought this might be a good start. 

I die for her wardrobe. From the moment that we found out we were having a little girl, the fashion game has been strong. Between my mom and me, we have managed to acquire quite the starter-wardrobe for Eila Bird. Some of my favorite places have been Rue La La, Target, H&M and Cotton Tails. No joke, if I could afford all of the Kickee Pants garments, I would buy them all. I'll do a separate post for her clothes at some point, but for now, here's a glimpse!
