Nursery in the Nest: The Details

I hope you enjoyed my last post, Nursery in the Nest, for an overview of our baby's nursery. Now on to the details!...



Side table with concrete lamb; Baby nursery; Nursery in the Nest; Nora's Nest
I found this lovely lamb at an antique shop in Los Angeles. Its concrete texture and washed-out blue color gives the side table a sophisticated edge while still remaining sweet and childlike.

Changing table with birds; Baby nursery; Nursery in the Nest; Nora's Nest
This changing table topper and pillow was all we needed to transform this chest of drawers into a changing table. These Mexican folk art birds, carved of wood and painted a deep blue, fly over the antique beaded mirror.

Gray and white hues dominate the crib vignette.

All white linen bedding gives the crib simplicity and a cloud-like appearance. A soft lamb and vintage duck patiently wait to be noticed by our little one.

I love the pinwheel design on this white quilt. The bumper with lace trimming was made by my mother when I was a baby. 
Note to new parents with infants: For safety reasons, this bumper and quilt are for decoration only; not to be used while baby is in the crib.

Welcome to a child's world...where a penguin, a cat, and a mouse take a spot of tea together :). 

Clover Herbarium; Baby nursery; Nursery in the Nest; Nora's Nest

I originally made this clover herbarium for St. Patrick's Day (see how!) when the freshly cut clovers were bright green. Now that the clovers haven taken on a sepia color, they are perfect for the nursery.

Sconces, a flushmount chandelier, and a lamp give the nursery a warm glow. For the perfect amount of light at any given time, we installed dimmers on the light fixtures.

This blue and cream rug ties the space together and provides a soft surface for our little girl to play.
