claire's nursery

I'm so thrilled to be sharing these photos of Claire's finished nursery today!  We've been working on her nursery since about February, and we had to wait for a few pieces of furniture to arrive to be able to make the final touches.  I had a lot of inspiration from Pinterest and other blogs, but I think the thing that makes me happiest is that I was able to pull together my favorite elements from those sources and make something truly our own.  We love the bright light this room gets, and sometimes now I just want to go hang out in there.  If you have any questions about sources not listed here feel free to ask/comment!  

Claire's crib is from Pottery Barn, and we loved that it was simple and versatile enough to use again for a second someday baby, even if it were to be a boy.  The decal came from Etsy, and my friend Jess made the tissue paper garland for my shower, and I stole it afterwards!  The little print above the door (difficult to see) is a drawing of the St. Louis Arch.  

This print is from Etsy, and I stole the gorgeous frame from work.  The chevron baby blanket was a shower gift.  

We didn't want to get a changing table per say, but we did decide to use this buffet table from Hobby Lobby to corral all the essentials.  Our chair is from Pottery Barn, and the pouf ottoman & side table are both from Target.  

We wanted to do a graphic detail on one wall, and when a co-worker of mine found these gold polka dot decals on Groopdealz one day, I just went for it!  We love them, and it was beyond easy to do.  I also loved the idea of displaying some of Claire's prettiest dresses as decor, so I picked up some hooks from Hobby Lobby.  The shelf was handmade by family as a wedding gift, and I painted it to coordinate with the room.  The lamp and mirror are from Target.  

One of my favorite items in the room is the balloon painting, which we bought on our honeymoon in Florence.  The rest are prints from Etsy that I framed at work.  

These Rifle Paper Co. prints were something I knew I wanted to incorporate into the room, as they provided a lot of my decorating inspiration.  The banner is also from Rifle Paper Co!  

Just a longer shot of the polka dot wall.  I have to share a closet with Claire, so I got a dressing bench to sit next to the window.  The curtains on the closet are a gold polka dot, and it's hard to see how metallic they are in photos!  Darrell wanted to keep his guitar in Claire's room for singing lullabies (and that is just so cute, how could I resist?) 

Just another little view of this table - the gold tray was a steal from Home Goods for only $15, and I saw the idea for storing pacifiers in a hurricane lantern on Pinterest.  I'm also hoping to keep fresh flowers in here all the time - they really thrive with the sunlight and I think they add so much to the room!  

This is my storage system for most of Claire's clothing.  Like I said, we share the closet (many of her dresses I obviously don't want to fold) so I'm keeping onesies, leggings, sweaters, and her shoes & plush toys in this little storage system from Target.  Even the ceramic labels are from Target, and I think they are a genius product!  Dry erase and they make it so much easier - especially for visiting family that may be grabbing something for me.  

That's it!  I hope you liked the little nursery tour - we're fairly thrilled with it and I was so happy to finally be able to share it.  


  1. I love it! So fresh and airy. The mint/gold/white combination will be easy to transition as well. And I love that you displayed some of her frocks. There are so many details. I'm sure you will enjoy taking care of her in the new nursery.

  2. LOVE this nursery!! I had a similar envision of a nursery if I was having a girl, but I'm being blessed with a boy. I had that exact pouf from Target on my nursery wish list, however I decided to save some money and use an ottoman that I already had and was not using! I love finding other St Louis Bloggers!

  3. Blue denim with a white shirt, irrespective of which era he
    or she belongs to, can add a huge plus to ones fashion quotient.
    The truth of the matter is that there is always room
    for negotiation. What about the office parties many of us has to attend.
