Rivers' Mix of Old, New & Handmade

Rivers' Mix of Old, New & Handmade

Name: Rivers (1 month)
Location: Goshen, Indiana

We chose to not find out what our baby was going to be, so from the beginning I knew I would be designing a gender neutral nursery. I wanted to incorporate a lot of color and mix new and vintage pieces to match the rest of our 1890s home. I wanted to create a fun and playful nursery that would work for either gender and now that we have a son I think the nursery is perfect for him!

Many elements are handmade by my husband and myself as well as family and friends. Each of the guests at my baby shower brought a letter to complete Rivers's alphabet wall. The dresser is an Ikea dresser that my husband and I painted. I made the bird mobile that hangs above the crib. A family friend made the rocker and child's rocker. I love that there is so much love included in so many of the objects in Rivers's nursery.
