colorful vintage bohemian nursery inspiration
The nursery is DONE! It’s the best feeling. I love sitting in this room and visualizing Morg and I with our little bundle. That lounge chair (rocker/recliner) is now Morg’s favorite place in the whole house — I let him pick out the rocking chair, after he was appalled at the cost of those adorable modern gliders. This was a hilarious task for him and he ended up going with this lounger from (yep!) Costco. It’s so comfortable, I’m not even mad about it.
I had an idea of what I wanted to do for the nursery about half way through my pregnancy and started with projects I already had on deck — like this DIY refurbished vintage dresser. I knew I wanted it to be colorful, bright, have a vintage flare and steer clear of any “theme” (just not my style). But other than that, I didn’t really kick things into gear prepping for Banks until I got home from our LA shower around week 32 and realized that I had nothing I would actually need if I had to bring the bubba home tomorrow (I hear this is normal…). Luckily, my rockstar Mom (Oma!) was in town from surprising us at our shower and was able to relax me/help me get organized. We made a list, shopped for all the essentials, organized the room and she even helped me stencil his arrow wall — a project I wanted to do, but wasn’t sure I had the energy for anymore (she really did the majority — thank you mama!!).
What makes this room so special is really all of the love that our family and friends have put into it. My mom got Banks this vintage inspired wood name plate in Germany, Morg’s Yaya has knit him multiple blankets, friends have contributed countless books, and his aunt, Jenna, brought him home a beaded elephant mobile from Thailand. I can’t wait to show the little man how loved he is!
