Sophie’s Room

How much fun is it to decorate a babies room?!?!

Since we chose not to find out the gender before our sweet baby girl was born, I went with gender neutral for the nursery, but didn’t go the typical green or yellow paint route.  Enjoy a peak into her room below!

Her crib, which she has yet to sleep in, I’m just not ready for that yet.  The poofs and dots above were re-purposed decor from one of my baby showers, I made the crib skirt to hide stuff that were are storing underneath the crib.  The plates on the wall I bought in high school when I was working at a local art gallery/gift shop, they are super cute Winnie the Pooh plates and I always planned on using them in a nursery some day.  The tiny Muskoka chair with the lamb sitting on it was a gift from my co-workers, I am lucky to work with some super amazing and generous women.

The rocking chair is a hand-me-down from my parents, they used to rock my brother and I to sleep in this many years ago.  The tree is from Etsy, and only took us approx 3 hours to put up, there was minimal swearing and fighting though, important to note I feel.

It was nice to spend some quality time with my sewing machine again, I made the valance above the window, crib skirt and a curtain for the closet door.  I had to get my mom to make the cushion for the rocking chair though, as it was more than I was willing to mess up, and she came early.

I wish the artwork showed up better in this picture, as it is SUPER cute, but I will link to them below.  I guess I could have taken the glass out of the frames, but Sophie doesn’t really nap anymore and I knew I had limited time to take these shots.

So there you have it, our adorable baby girls adorable room.  I hope she likes it when she is more aware of her surroundings!

  1. We just chose Aqua Sky for our baby’s nursery too. Thanks for sharing your pics because they’ve made me super excited to paint! I was afraid the Aqua Sky would be a little too “green” but your pics look awesome!
