My Room: Chloe

Smyrna, GA

Chloe's nursery all began with her birch tree niche. We opened up the wall containing a 30" wide closet door to allow for her changing table/closet/dresser niche. And what a niche it is! Kristin tells us more about this lovely room&hellip

After painting out & changing the hardware on her dresser, that was from her paternal grandmother, we installed a laminate countertop from IKEA. This has been an ideal surface for changing diapers, having conversations and getting dressed. Not to mention it's easy to wipe down. As little clothes hang on little hangers, small closet rods were attached to the underside of the counter on either side of the dresser. And once the over scaled butterflies were hung from the ceiling, Chloe's favorite spot in her room was complete.

Her classic Jenny Lind crib was made modern by the use of the graphic Oilo Studio bedding and the large scale mirror that we attached the silver butterflies to. All of the higher ticket items in her room are things that can easily transition to other areas of the house. There are not many "Baby" specific items that she will grow out of in the next year or two. This gives her room the sense of sophistication with little pops of whimsy thrown in.

Thanks Kristin!
