I’m so happy that I’m (finally) sharing the pictures from Ivy’s nursery! This room was originally a simple guest room as I didn’t put too much fuss into it when we moved in as I hoped it would someday be a nursery for baby #2.
Little did I know the long and difficult fertility journey that lay ahead. I still remember the days I’d peek over at the room (it’s directly across from our bedroom) and hope to see a crib in there. God answered our prayers with sweet Ivy, the most darling rainbow baby.
And now have all the sweet nursery pictures to share… FINALLY…
I wanted to reuse the rocker and crib that we already owned from Blakely’s nursery, but thankfully they were neutral in color because we did not find out the gender until birth! I’m not sure how we managed to wait until she was here to find out, but we did it – and it was the BEST surprise! I was certain she was a boy (which I also would have been thrilled about) but I was wrong!
Starting out, we kept the room very gender neutral with the bare bones of everything being rattan or white. I knew I would add warmth and color to the room once baby arrived with the rug and table-skirt so we opted to wait until baby arrived for those. I love how it turned out to be a sweet light pink nursery!
Shades of Pink Nursery Rug
For the nursery rug, I wanted a traditional oriental-style rug with shades of pink to give color to the gender neutral nursery. It has some peachy hues in it which I love paired with all of the pink and rattan in the room. It’s probably my favorite rug in the house now!
White Iron Crib
The crib was Blakely’s along with her same bedskirt! I’m so glad I’m able to reuse these items, it was worth all the storage! Crib is Bratt Decor.
The light pink buffalo check crib sheet is available here. Don’t worry, the pillows and all the soft items are removed for safe sleeping!
Speaking of pillows, my mom kept so many of our family heirloom baby pillowcases. We have them tucked into little carriages and around the room. We added a couple of new ones for sweet Ivy. I love this one (above) from Simply Sandra Designs!
I also adore this pink and white applique name pillow on the rocker. It’s by Peppermint Bee!
Gold Nursery Etagere
The exact gold etagere (from One Kings Lane) is currently only available in black or white (both beautiful), however this is a similar gold one! It was the first piece I bought for the room last spring.
My husband has secured it to the wall for safety. Blakely and I had the best time filling it up with sweet gifts and personal touches. We have a basket of books and toys on the bottom.
Nursery Dresser & Diaper Storage
I chose the Pottery Barn Kids Ava Regency dresser as I’d had my eye on it for quite some time. It’s just as beautiful in person! I added these easy drawer dividers inside (these are so helpful with lots of tiny clothes to organize) – HIGHLY recommend!
Beside the dresser, I am using this rattan cane storage tower for all the diapers, wipes, muslin blankets, etc. I LOVE it and plain to use it for books and toys in the future!
The sweet brass rainbow is from West Elm and we traded our the white yarn detail it arrived with for some pink and white satin ribbon.
The rattan mirror is from Lindroth Designs.
I had my eye on these Bunny Williams nesting scalloped baskets for a long time! They did take several months to come in as they were backordered, but they are worth it! I’ll admit they’re larger than I envisioned, but it works out in our favor as they hold all the things!
I also had a local closet company do some customizing to one of Ivy’s side closets. The other side of the room has a matching closet that we have left as-is for extra toy storage.
It’s a little tough to see in the photos, but I chose this Hampton Pendant for the lighting. I love how sweet it is!
White Nursery Drapes
I decided on the drapes before I knew she was a girl, so I wanted white drapes that would work well with either gender. I loved the tassel drapes from Ballard Designs, but they were simply too large for the space so I set out to create the look on my own.
I purchased white drapes from a local interior store here in Nashville and had my mom sew on tassel trim to create a similar look. I absolutely LOVE how they turned out, they’re one of my favorite elements of the room!
The drapery rods are extras from an old guest room redo – and I gave the rods a quick spray of white.
Doll & Bear Chairs
The little doll and bear chairs are all from various antique stores or my mom’s own collection from when I was younger. The tiny wicker chair (my mom has a matching rocking chair version) was bought in Palm Beach at an antique store years ago. If you love the look, keep your eye out for wicker chairs that can be painted! My grandmother loved wicker and my mom and I fall right in line, ha!
Nursery Table & Table-Skirt
I spent quite a lot of time looking at fabrics for a table skirt for this round table. I was looking for both genders, as I didn’t know if she was a boy or a girl at the time. I had decided on a blue antelope print if it was a boy and I was still not sure about a girl, but narrowed down to a few prints. Surprise, girl!
I finally chose this darling peony print from Spoonflower and my mom sewed it into the perfect round table skirt. The frames are a mix – some from HomeGoods, some from a local shop called Hot Pink here in Brentwood, TN.
On the table, we have this sound machine, and I absolutely love it! With two large dogs and a big sister running around, this has saved me during nap-times! For on-the-go or in a basset in our room, I highly recommend this portable sound machine!
The sweet quatrefoil pierced white lamp from the table is available here! It’s the perfect size for this space.
Sweet Girl’s Nursery Art
As for art and prints in the room, I absolutely adore anything Riley Sheehey creates. Her prints are just gorgeous. I chose these gold bamboo frames from William Sonoma Home for two of Riley’s prints.
These pink porcelain bunny art prints from Dogwood Hill remind me of Herend bunnies that my mom has! They come in blue too! We framed them over a sweet pink and white buffalo check ribbon.
My best friend surprised me with this darling giraffe when I got pregnant. I had shown her various nursery ideas over the years and several included this giraffe. It was the BEST surprise, and I love it! I tied on this white wicker rattle that was mine when I was little, my mom found it when we lived in Charleston.
There we have it! I love how this sweet “grandmillennial style” nursery turned out! It’s full of so many family heirlooms along with lots of new touches for sweet Ivy.
