Name: Audrey (2 months)
Location: Denver, Colorado
Designing my daughter's nursery was such a fun project. When I found out that we were having a girl, I knew that I wanted the room to feel feminine, but sophisticated. We chose pink for the walls and toned it down using aqua, gray, and gold accents.
A few of my favorite things:
- The collage wall with gold frames: I wanted a way to show pieces of our daughter's history. The wall includes photos of her great grandparents, a canvas tote bag from our wedding, and a city map of Denver, where she was born.
- The bookshelves: we love reading and wanted books to be a big feature in the room. I like these shelves (Ikea photo ledges) because we can move books up and down as she gets older.
- The small wooden chair: this is a family piece — my husband's grandmother needlepointed the pattern for him when he was born. She passed away before Audrey was born, so it was important to have a part of her in the room.
- The changing table: I'd be on the hunt for a dry sink, the perfect piece of furniture to convert to a changing table. I found this one for $75 on Craigslist, painted it and put new knobs on.
Lovely, thanks, Emily!
