Our Baby Nursery Room Reveal

Setting up the nursery room was the biggest project I tackled during my pregnancy. I had a lot of ideas on how I wanted the nursery room to be like. But it was hard to start without first knowing the gender. So Will and I kept it fairly neutral at the beginning. We didn't find out about our baby's gender until I was 37 weeks pregnant. And it was one of our best moments to share with family and friends (pre-social distancing time). If you missed the post, check out our baby gender reveal party here.

I had so much fun designing and decorating this space for Baby Sue. I wanted the space to be inviting, airy and bright. So Will painted the room in bright white paint and an accent grey wall with the leftover paint we used on our main floor. It was impressive to see how a paint change could instantly lift up the vibe of a room.

I didn't really have a theme to work with but I wanted to add some whimsical elements to the nursery. I found a cute rug from Ikea and it worked quite nicely with the colour scheme.

Originally, I wanted to do a wallpaper accent wall by the crib. But after doing wallpaper in our master bedroom and powder room, Will didn't want to deal with wallpapers anymore. So instead, I made some removable wall decals with my Cricut machine and had Will stick them up at the top. They looked pretty good and compliment the rug. Don't you think?

Above the crib, I decided to hang some art prints from one of my favourite illustrator, Sol Mari Art. I edited the illustrations a bit to better match the colour scheme and sent it to a local print shop. I bought some white frames and stuck them up to the wall using the Command strips. This is my go-to damage-free method for hanging frames on the wall. I absolutely adore the art prints and I think they work so well with the space!

I hadn't gotten the chance to buy some shelvings and a mirror for the space above the dresser before all the non-essential retail stores closed for the pandemic crisis. This wall would be left empty for awhile unless I could find something I like online. In the corner, we set up a nursing area with a grey recliner. There's actually a small cabinet set up to hold all my nursing needs as well. I just couldn't wait to spend time with my little one in this cozy corner!

Finally, I wanted to throw in some personal touches. In order to have all the decor pieces tie in together, I went with the DIY route so I could customize it to my liking without spending a fortune. I spent most of my early maternity break finishing up all those decor pieces like the bunting banner, hanging wall banner, cloud mobile, wall decals and milestone blocks. I even gotten some time to make some personalized onesies too!
