Ava's Nursery

I'm finally able to share my baby girl's nursery.  I was waiting for it to be completely finished before giving you all the details!  Ava Marie will be 3 weeks on Wednesday and I cannot believe how quickly it has gone by.  There is nothing I love more than hanging out with my daughter in her nursery.  She is still sleeping in a rock n' play sleeper next to our bed so we spend a lot of our time in our room, so I try to expose her to her nursery as much as I can so she can get comfortable!

We waited until we found out that we were having a girl before getting her nursery started. The first step was to paint.  We chose the shade Blushing Bride which is more of a taupe color.  We also installed this beautiful chandelier and added a dimmer, since we knew we wouldn't want too bright of a light for middle of the night feedings.

The first piece we bought for her room is this beautiful Restoration Hardware armoire.  I really had to convince my husband on the value of this investment piece.  She will be able to use this for years to come!  Luckily, I was able to find this at the RH outlet for a fraction of the price. I also found these gorgeous silk curtains at RH outlet at a much lesser cost.  I purchased the washed velvet bedding on their website and waited for it to go on sale before buying.

Her crib, dresser and glider are all from Babies R Us.  This glider was the last piece to come in and didn't arrive until she was 2 weeks old.  Just a forewarning, if you are buying a special order from Babies R' Us, it can take up to 12 weeks.  The crib and dresser set is Truly Scrumptious by Heidi Klum and you can receive 15% off if you order online.  I loved this crib because it converts into a full size bed.  Details on where to purchase the above items are linked below!

This mirror was a Homegood's #fabfind, along with the lamp and sconces.  The changing pad is from Babies R Us and the bird cage, damask candle and letter A are all from Michaels.



My Mom gave Ava this beautiful silver plated rattle before she was born.  It is very special to us.





This was my Mom's Christening dress from many years ago.  We can't wait for Ava's Baptism!


Lenny has finally gotten use to his new roommate! He now loves hanging out in Ava's room, especially during tummy time and when I feed her on her glider in the middle of the night.




These bird cage shelves and decor are all from Michael's.


This gorgeous bed crown was a gift from my Mom for Ava's baby shower and is made by Horchow.  



We really wanted her room to be peaceful and feminine and it turned out exactly how I had imagined.  I can't wait to watch my baby girl grow into her little room!  I really hope she'll love it just as much as I do one day.
