In my last post I talked about how I loved having baby girls to dress up all cute. (Make sure to check out and enter the giveaway to win an adorable headband and accessories HERE!) Another one of my favorite things about having a baby is getting to decorate their nursery. I love being able to make a room just for that sweet little baby to call home!
Mia luckily doesn't have to share a room with Livy, but I am making Livy's room still double as my craft room. I wasn't quite ready to give up having my crafting space yet...so I made Eric give up his little "office" space. Don't I have the best husband! So the inspiration for my color scheme started with my crafting desk which I painted Seaglass blue from the Martha Stewart paint collection. (You can see pictures of it HERE.) Then I came across these adorable birdhouses in this nursery and I just had to do it as well! So evolved my color scheme and theme for the nursery!
From there everything else fell into place perfectly! I just love the soft colors and sweetness this room has. It's making me really antsy to have a baby to actually put in this room! Take a look!
It's hard to tell in the picture, but hanging on the bird picture wire is a temple wall art print. I've been wanting one to put in both of the girl's rooms, but haven't been willing to pay for one so I decided to make one myself.
I liked it so much that I've decided to post a free download for it in multiple colors on the blog! Download this temple print HERE.
This picture was such a great find and one of my favorite details in the room! This was a cover of a magazine that Eric's Grandma sent me. The colors in the pictures work perfect with the nursery and I love how at the bottom its dated "Spring 2013", which is when Livy will be born.
Shortly after choosing my theme and color scheme I found this way cute "bird" themed material online with the exact colors I wanted for Livy's quilt. As a side note, I made a similar quilt for Mia when she was born. I thought it would be fun to start a tradition to make a quilt for each of my babies for them to have as something made from their mother and maybe get to use on their own kids someday.
I made these window cornices out of foam board, tape, batting, fabric and a staple gun if you can believe it from THIS tutorial!...making these super cheap to make and easily changeable.
