We recently bought a new home, and found out I am pregnant. The space we chose for the nursery is a fairly large an attached sunroom and rooftop terrace. It had beautiful bones, but was this awful yellow that was killing me. It had to go.
When I first began working on the design I'd already accumulated most of the pieces I wanted to use. I realized early on that this project was going to be very personal. I wanted not only a functional and comfortable space, but a room filled with things that we love, things that a little boy of ours might love, too. This was our focus, and as the plan developed it became less and less important if the nursery actually looked the part of, well, a nursery.
Nearly everything was found at local estates or consignment shops or during our travels. I bought the ottoman online from a place in India. The little cowboy boots were my husband Andrew's. The work above the crib is mine from years ago. The little red stool is something I picked up a while back and was using in the laundry room. The only new piece of furniture is the Bloom Coco Stylewood Baby Bouncer (gifted from Andrew's parents), unless you count the new slipcover I bought for the rocker.
Thanks Kelly & Andrew! Readers, see more of Aston's room at Tearing Up Houses.
