Rosie's Nursery

A while back, I put together an inspiration board for my sister's baby girl's nursery. While the board served as a great jumping off point, the room took on a life of its own once the design wheels were set in motion. I actually think the only pieces that we ended up pulling from the inspiration board were the crib and lamp. Which is fine by me, I am obsessed with the way it turned out! Her nursery is bright, cheerful, fun and I think it fulfills my sister's idea of it being a nursery but not feeling to "baby-ish".
It's the perfect room for our perfect Rosie!
Rosie's newborn session (I shared some photos at the end of this post) and some shots of her nursery were taken by the insanely talented Taylor Kinzie. Check out her work here!
The geometric heart is a DIY project from Vintage Revivals. The building blocks face is my Mom's from when she was little. I remember playing with them at my Grandpa's house when I was a kid and I think its pretty cool that Rosie will play with them when she gets a little older. My sister painted the abstract art piece!
My absolute favorite part of the room is the dreamcatchers over the crib. We found the feathers at Michaels and painted them by hand.
The Ikea dresser used to be in my sisters room, but with a fresh coat of white paint, it was repurposed into a changing table. We kept the Ikea mirror as is, because we wanted to bring in a natural material and not have every piece of furniture be white. The lamp is Nate Berkus for Target (unfortunately it is out of stock, but this one is similar). The brass camel is a garage sale find and the books are from World Market.
The cutest custom baby shoes are by Taylor Says.
The flamingo prints were purchased on Etsy. The Hudson crib can be found online here.
The upholstered rocking chair was found at Goodwill and recovered by my Mom.
The brass rocking horse was found at a flea market in Hawaii by my friend Natalie. The pink crystal and gold side table are from Home Goods. The white tray was a DIY project I did a few weeks ago. 
My sweet friend Ashley bought the mama and baby elephants from a remote village in Africa when she went on a mission there a few months ago. So adorable! The mirrored bamboo tray is from Home Goods.
Rosie was born on June 3rd at 9:25am weighing 8.1 lbs. and 21 inches long. 
There couldn't be anything more perfect on this planet. I thought I was prepared for how I would feel when I saw her for the first time, but was I wrong. So, so wrong. Sure enough, the first moment my eyes could see my sister holding her, tears were uncontainable. It really is such a beautiful sight to see a mother and a newborn. But to see my sister and her perfect child, well, it's like nothing I could ever imagine. It was so intensely beautiful and left me in awe. I met those unexplainable emotions for the first time in that moment. And now I have to be a crazy Aunt and share a few pics of my gorgeous sister and Rosie.
