The Nursery Reveal

Since today is the little lady's due date (though I'm not feeling any signs of her imminent arrival yet!), I thought it's the perfect time to show you her nursery.  From start to finish, I so enjoyed putting together her room.  It holds a special place in my heart & was my little haven where I could simply reflect on the past months. 

This room is probably never going to look this way ever again (yes, I most definitely did hide the diaper pail & the trash can for these photos) so without further adieu, here is the little lady's nursery.

I hope you love it as much as I do. 
If not, well....it doesn't take much to make me cry these days. HA!

  1. Was mini-Hiro a gift? Any ideas where it was purchased?! I love it and my future children need mini versions of my furbabies :)

  2. I just came across your blog and have to compliment on you on creating such a beautiful, thoughtful, and happy room. I too LOVED creating our nursery and truly appreciate a put together room with all the right details. Well done!

    ReplyDelete
  3. This is so cute and sweet and perfect, great job thanks for sharing!!

  4. @ Adrienne: I got Mini Hiro from Amazon! He's actually a beanie baby version of Bo the Presidential dog, LOL!! But his resemblance to Hiro is uncanny. I found him just by entering a breed + stuffed animal in the Amazon search box & voila. Hope this helps!

  5. This is a beautiful and peaceful space! I'm sure your peanut will love it.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Do you know why I LOVE this room? Because it's gorgeous and perfect but not overly nursery-ish. Fabulous job, FC. That's going to be one classy Peanut.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I remember all too well what it feels like to pass your due date... It's what happened to me just 4.75 months ago. She'll come out when she's ready.

    In the meantime, your nursery is perfect! Just perfect! I love all the details and I just the what it has all come together!

    Good job Mama!

  10. ::dead::

    And the knit pouf?? ::dead again::

    Amazing!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I love what you've done with this nursery! And seriously...why don't you live closer?

    Little Miss isn't due for another few weeks (thank God), and her nursery is a jumble (she's sleeping next to the bed for a few months so I'm in no rush) except we have the crib built and the dresser set up for me to paint this weekend. This is definitely giving me inspiration.

    Did you simply type up the Carry Your Heart print? If not, I'd love to know where you found it! The type is beautiful and it's a poem G and I recite a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  12. What a sweet, darling room for a sweet, darling baby!! I have a baby girl (2 weeks old) and it is the best, ever. Love everything about the nursery, especially the raspberry accents! And I have the same pouf, love it :) Good luck and hope baby comes soon!!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Such a beautiful space!!! Thinking of you and your baby's girls arrival! She is going to be so adorable, just like her Momma!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. such a sweet room, i love how you created such beauty with a very calming color palette. Very nice!

    ReplyDelete
  15. It looks fantastic! I have such baby girl jealousy. I tried to sneak in some pretty girly accents into our nursery, but JEGs caught me and put the kibosh. Whomp whomp.

    Do I spy a Q hanging up? Are we naming the baby Quinn? I'm super interested.

    Any day now!

  16. WOW - This is a perfect room. There is so much to comment on that I'm just going to sum it all up by saying I LOVE IT! Good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  17. LOVE!!!! What a perfect room for a perfect family. Been thinking about you this morning and wondering how you have been doing. Hang in there. Your life is about to get a heck of a lot crazier (in so many great ways). Miss you. We'll get together soon.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I love your nursery! It is so beautiful, peaceful and sweet. I'm sure you and your daughter will love spending time in there. Congratulations and good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  19. It's amazing! So much eye candy! I love all the touches of gold and pink. And it's just so darn classy. This little girl will have the best room on the block. (Really, I looked in all the windows on the rest of the block on the last drive-by.)

    ReplyDelete
  20. It is just beautiful! I love those cutie animal prints in the gold frames and the hardware on the dresser is awesome. Now all it needs is your little girl to complete it!

    ReplyDelete
  21. ...I am seriously at a loss for words. This room is exquisite! Honestly. What a beautiful space. Take care :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Wow, it turned out great! What a pretty nursery. I'm sure baby FC is going to absolutely love the room her mama created for her. Sending loads of baby dust your way!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Aww, it turned out beautiful! I think the peanut will be quite happy with her surroundings!

    ReplyDelete
  24. THANK YOU EVERYONE for taking the time to leave such sweet comments!! I can't express how much I appreciate your kindness. I heart you all.

    @ Jill: Thank you so much for the words of encouragement! I have to keep telling myself that: she'll come out when she's ready. =]

    @ Kristal: LOL, you're hilarious! Thank you, K!


    @ Elisa: Oh my gosh, congrats on your beautiful baby girl!! I'm over the moon for your happy family! (I adore that CB2 pouf too!!)

    @ LB: You crack me up! I give you points for trying. I caught Mr. FC trying to sneak a little boy's onesie into her closet. HA!
    * Her first name IS Quinn, good catch. We didn't see a point in keeping it a secret but are mostly only telling people if they ask. =]

    ReplyDelete
  25. @ Kate: If we lived closer I'd be over at your place every day devouring your culinary creations. You'd never get rid of me. It could get awkward, ha!

    For the poem, I did just type it up & tweaked some of the pentameter (felt a little bad for doing that since that sort of defined Cummings' work!). I used the font "Jane Austen" that I downloaded free from here:

    http://www.dafont.com/jane-austen.font

    The last line of the poem, I used "Scriptina":
    http://www.dafont.com/scriptina.font

    I read how much this poem means to you on your blog not too long ago & it brought tears to my eyes. Best wishes in the weeks ahead to you & the Little Miss!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!It's really gorgeous FC! Can't wait to meet the little one (via online) of course, lol!!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. This nursery is the picture of serenity. Well done, FC! Its such a beautiful room. And Quinn is at the top of my list for girl's names whenever we have another one - great name :)

    Wishing you a speedy and safe delivery!

  29. The only thing more precious will be seeing a picture of your little one in her lovely space. :) I can't wait to see how magical this room becomes for you both.

  33. WOW!!!!!!!! Your nursery looks amazing and so chic! You really need to think about a career in interior design! Your taste is impeccable! BTW... my favorite item in the nursery is...that sweet little stuffed animal that resembles your dog. :)

  47. I'm a new reader over from Centsational Girl... loving this reveal! The nursery is so calm and sophisticated. LOVE it. :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. Beeeeeeautiful! my baby nursery is coming along, but boy this is great motivation! :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. I came over from Centsational girl to watch your pretty nursery, and I totally love it, especially the grey pouf, did you make it yourself ? and would you like to tell us how ?
    Greetz and hope your little girl arrives very soon now.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Just beautiful! I can't decide which I like more... the crib, the gold framed Sharon Montrose prints, the bookshelf, the booties...! : ) Just gorgeous. Congratulations!

    ReplyDelete
  51. This room is so sweet and special I actually teared up. Can I truly like you so much without 'knowing' you that I'm this happy for you?! I can almost smell the room, and smell her precious head (baby heads are intoxicating, btw). I think she wants to share a bday with her auntie sugarplum...but I hope for you sake she doesn't wait until the 12th. But either way, she's a screamin scorpio!! you can consult me as she grows, I understand our indecisive complex minds. ;)

    Please tweet when you go into labor so we can send you good mojo! Enjoy the full experience...nothing compares to the birth of your first child. Why do I always leave the longest possible comments on your blog?!?!?!?

    ReplyDelete
  52. This room is gorgeous! I'm in love with that ottoman! Every inch is just perfect for your sweet girl! If she's still not here - get a foot massage - that can help naturally induce labor. I literally gasped at the patagonia booties ;) Too cute for words!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Thank you so very much for your kind words & supportive well wishes. They all mean the world to us! =]

    @ Suzie: Crawl on in, girl! You could easily fit in her crib, HA!

    @ Jesse: I LOVE that book to pieces. I always get it for my friends who are new moms but somehow slipped my mind (prego hormones?). Thx so much for the reminder, J!

    @ Renee: LOL! I wish she had arrived on 11/5! But nope, still prego. =]

    @ Cathy: Sadly I didn't make the pouf myself--I wish I had those skills! The knitted pouf is from CB2(I've provided a link in my source list at the bottom of the post).

  56. Hello, I've just started blogging so I am looking for other blogs to follow. I ran into yours and had to follow. I had a baby last summer and in her room I have... the same crib, same wall decal, same frame from an old mirror, and same, "I carry your heart saying..." Creepy. Good luck w new baby. It will be CRAZY in the beginning but worth it!

  57. @ Crazy Momma Amanda: LOL! A little creepy, yes. Great minds think alike! =] Thank you for your well wishes!!

    1. Hi there,
      We got the 24 inchers(sorry, I mentioned it in an earlier blog post but forgot to do so in this reveal).
      Hope this helps!

  71. I like the book shelves, but I'm worried how much weight they can handle. Have you had any problems with them?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The 24 in shelves come w/ a screw hole on either end & we made sure to use drywall anchors (or if you're lucky, you might be able to drill into a stud in the wall right where you want to hang the shelf) to ensure the screws/shelf were secure. Currently each shelf holds about 10-12 board books/hardcover kids' books & so far so good. The shelves are quite durable & can hold quite a bit (w/ no sagging in our experience). Just make sure to drill the screws into drywall anchors or studs in the wall.

      Hope this helps!
