The Little Franks will be six months old in a few short weeks, so I decided it was finally time to take a few photos of their nursery (translation- I finally nagged Mr. Frankel enough that he hung the mobile for me). I don’t have time to include a list of sources right now, but I’ll update this post with one very soon.
I went through several iterations when I was deciding what I wanted in the nursery (here and here). I knew I didn’t want a theme because I change my mind so frequently when it comes to interiors. The part I found to be most challenging was not letting the nursery seem too girlish/boyish. I just wanted the room to feel whimsical and peaceful.
I’m extremely happy with out it turned out. Christopher and I both agree that it’s our favorite room in the house. I’m tempted to put a blow-up mattress in there and start sleeping in the nursery myself!
We love the Expedit shelf from IKEA; I think Christopher loves it for it’s price and functionality, and I for the fact that it’s high gloss.
I REALLY wanted star wallpaper on the ceiling, but I also REALLY wanted this chest. In the end, I had to choose. When it comes to decisions like this, I’ll always choose furniture because we probably won’t be in this house for more than another five years. Also, I recall making a certain pact with my husband to never use wallpaper after we spent hundreds of hours tearing it down in our last house. How quickly I forget!!
I can’t wait until the Little Franks are a little older and we can start playing in here! Eventually I may replace the rocking chair with a teepee!
Hope you enjoyed a little peek into their room! We absolutely love it, and so do these two goons:
