When I last left you, the room had undergone quite a transformation with the addition of the custom built bookshelves and bench seat, fresh paint on the beadboard, walls, and stripes on the ceiling, and we had furniture. Now, the room has been filled with all the decorative accents like a gorgeous rug, beautiful artwork, fun mirror and other accessories that make it feel like the peaceful, soothing nursery I had dreamed of all along.It really was down to the wire though! I was shopping for candy for the candy jar (ending up with Mentos gumballs) and running to get staples for my staple gun Monday morning with the photoshoot scheduled for that afternoon. I got home and finished building the bench seat just about 20 minutes before the photographer arrived. I normally take all my own photos for my blog, but I wanted this room to be captured on film as beautifully as it is in real life and the big window gives me such a headache photographing. I’ve never been able to get a good photo when shot in that direction. I also wanted to do justice to the design Sita helped me pull together so she would look as good as she deserves to!
Last night, I got the photos back after 7pm, so I was up late putting this final nursery reveal post together. I’ll definitely be back next week so I can properly and thoroughly provide you the full run down on sources and projects for the room. If you have any questions, please let me know in the comments so I can answer everything in detail.
If you were able to come over, we’d be drinking a cup of coffee or tea and chatting before heading upstairs, so pretend I just served you a warm drink and let’s go inside!
Phew! I know that was photo overload, but I wanted to share every square inch with you!Oh, and just as a reminder of how far we came, here’s a quick before and after for ya!
There’s no doubt in my mind that this room wouldn’t have come together so beautifully, let alone in a month and a half without the talented genius of designer Sita Montgomery. She has been such a joy to work with and so clear and decisive when that’s what I really needed or I would have been agonizing forever over rug, pillow and art selections, etc. I appreciate that she stayed true to my vision and design aesthetic, while incorporating her taste level and experience. She’s a gem!Big hugs to the following, who provided products/services to make this little baby’s nursery a dream come true!
