Putting the Finishing Touches on Margot’s Nursery
Over one year into motherhood and Margot’s nursery is finally (I really do say that word too much but everything seems to take forever these days) done! It was mostly finished adding wallpaper and window treatments completely transformed the space. Every few months, I would randomly look for something then give up and forget about it. The room is shockingly (for me) pink and kind of girly, but so sweet. I have a date to shoot the space with Simply by Suzy at the end of the month and will share it on The Everymom this fall! Today, I want to share the sources and talk a little about how this room came together.
Initially, I planned on mostly white and grey but I found a beautiful, pink rug at Old New House (gifted by the brand) and it sort of took off from there. The room felt too white and wallpaper seemed pretty necessary. The only wallpaper I liked that would work with our pink rug was…pink. So here we are.
Since our window treatments needed to be outside mount, I had to find something that would give us great coverage and leave the room dark enough. I was so lucky to have been able to partner with Hunter Douglas on her room, and they gifted us the most beautiful window treatments! I chose the Provenance Woven Wood Shades in Maritime Alabaster with a Room-Darkening liner and LiteRise Operating System, and Design Studio Side Panels in Bungalow Snow with Brushed Bronze drapery hardware. A dynamic, beautiful duo that completely transformed the space.
Margot’s dresser is vintage. I bought it at The White Attic when I first moved to Chicago with the hope that one day, I’d put it in a nursery. Years later, I had it repainted by Meg Made, and today, it’s such a beautiful addition to Margot’s room. If you’re looking for vintage, search for Heppelwhite dressers. If you prefer something new, I included an option below for you.
A quick note on the felted animal heads. I bought two at Serena and Lily, but the poodle is sold out everywhere. I randomly found it online at Bellaboo and have no idea how many they have left, but here’s a link!
Decorating our house really hasn’t been a priority. We did just redo our 2.5 baths and it was a project, so a few rooms remained unfinished and didn’t feel like home. Now that summer is coming to an end, and with Anecdote launching in less than a month, I’m feeling the need to make sure each room is cozy and organized for winter. So expect a lot more home content in the next few months!
