Emily's Family Affair

My Room

Name: Emily (6 months)
Location: Charlotte, NC

We found out we were pregnant the day after we unloaded the moving van in our new house. The small bedroom was slated to be an office, but instead we were thrilled to turn it into a nursery!

Even though we knew we were having a girl, we opted for a more neutral color palette. Aside from being really excited to put our baby girl in this space, I adore this room because of all the love and little details that went into creating it.

My Mom made the crib bumper by hand (side note: we don't use the crib bumper now that baby sleeps in the bed) my husband built the bookshelves, the bench, the foot stool and he was the mastermind in charge of the stripes (there might have been some swearing involved with that project).

I made the mobile, some of the artwork and the pillows. My Dad cut custom mats for the frames and my Mom also made the curtains. The frames that the bunny pictures are hanging in were actually from the photobooth at our wedding, and the little silver picture frame above the dresser was a gift from when I was born, engraved with my birth statistics. The "love" pillow was a housewarming gift from when we first moved in together and the ends of the bookshelves are monogrammed with Emily's initial, in the same font as our wedding stationery. Even the stuffed pig has a special meaning between me and my husband, dating back to our first Valentine's Day together.
