As I mentioned in my post last week, it had been quite the week in regards to life happenings and that theme only continued into the weekend but with the birth of a new nephew – Henry James Armstrong. I met him last night and am completely smitten. It’s really quite something to see your sibling transform into a new role such as a Dad. I couldn’t get over how my brother seemed like such a natural with the little guy who was just a couple days old. Now, onto their nursery (a.k.a one of my current fave spaces) where a baby will now actually live!
This was previously their guest room, transformed into office but it mostly worked as an additional storage space for whatever life threw at them. They had been living in the home for roughly 5 years and apart from guests (and the later transition into the office), they didn’t use this room too much. The space hadn’t been painted so it was due for a fresh coat.
The wooden rocking chair was handed down from her mom and we loved it!
Ta-da!!!! Our vision for this space (which you can reference here) was to be bright, playful and gender neutral since we didn’t know the sex of the babe just yet. The new mom declared her love for all things rainbow which kicked off our gallery wall.
We wanted a feature wall yet it wouldn’t work within our budget so we came across these super fun wall decals that did just the trick! The shelving we installed, we customized a bit by painting the brackets and styling with books and new toys. We updated her credenza which she previously owned with some cute animal knobs paired with simple sleek ones.
