So, friends, The Nursery is finally complete enough to share. This is where Mr. Aston Robert will sleep, breathe, and poop.
Hopefully light on the poop.
Just to refresh your memory, here's what it originally looked like. It's a fairly large space with an attached sunroom and rooftop terrace.
It had beautiful bones, but the yellow was killing me. It had to go.
When I first began working on the design I'd already accumulated most of the pieces I wanted to use. I realized early on that this project was going to be very personal. I wanted not only a functional and comfortable space, but a room filled with things that we love, things that a little boy of ours might love, too. This was our focus, and as the plan developed it became less and less important if The Nursery actually looked the part of, well, a nursery.
Nearly everything was found at local estates or consignment shops or during our travels. I bought the ottoman online from a place in India. The little cowboy boots were Andrew's. The work above the crib is mine from years ago. You may recognize the pharmacy lamp from our old office. The little red stool is something I picked up a while back and was using in The Laundry Room. The only new piece of furniture is the Bloom Coco Stylewood Baby Bouncer (gifted from Andrew's parents), unless you count the new slipcover I bought for the rocker.
So what are your thoughts?
Not too shabby, right?
