Sentimental Touches in Baby Girl’s Nursery

We love that baby girl’s nursery has some personal touches from her grandparents. We have baby photos from each of her grandparents that are being framed now, and they will add some history to her room.

I also framed this sweet print that was in my Grandmother’s room as a child. When I was a little girl, Grandma would point out all of the things that were happening in the picture. “Look at the little kitty drinking milk.” “What do you think those two little girls are talking about?” I will likely have the same conversations with my little one. I also added these cherished Beatrix Potter music boxes to the shelves of her room. I received these as gifts from my Grandparents for special occasions throughout childhood.

AListBaby Girl’s Nursery!

Hello readers! Today is a big day! We want to share with you a few photos from baby girl’s nursery. We are thrilled with how everything came together. Our goal was a glamorous and timeless look. After much debate, we selected White Dogwood paint by Sherwin Williams. It is a soft pink. We did not want something too cotton-candy, yet I still wanted the wall color to be girly. After all….I waited my whole life for a baby girl! The trim and ceiling is Extra White, also by Sherwin Williams. We selected a flat finish for a more sophisticated look.

The chair and matching ottoman is Nava from the Storytime Series by Best. The chair is so comfortable! And we love the size. We looked long and hard for the right chair…and this one looks elegant, and does not overwhelm the room. The gorgeous crystal chandelier is from Lighting New York. We are thrilled with our choice of the Maria Theresa 5 light semi-flush mount. It took us hours to select the perfect chandelier, and this one sparkles like crazy, and is just perfect for the room.  We are also in love with her dresser and crib!

When I found out I was expecting, we knew we wanted Bratt Decor furniture for sure. I love the style…and the quality is among the very best on the market today. It was a dream come true the day the Chelsea Antique Silver Dresser and Venetian Pewter Crib arrived. We also purchased the changing table tray for the dresser, so we will just remove that when she is done with diapers, and the dresser will be hers forever!

The dresser is one of the nicest pieces of furniture we own. It actually arrived in one piece–no assembly required! It is so gorgeous in person. Of course, it was a thrill to have Mr. AList assemble the stunning Venetian Pewter Crib. I have always wanted an iron crib! The pewter look is very unique, as many people have the white iron. The crib can be set up as a canopy, four poster, or standard look. We chose the canopy look, and we may eventually add some sheer white fabric to drape over the top of the crib. Over the next week, we will share some of the sweet details in her room! I must say, decorating our baby girl’s nursery has been one of the best parts of pregnancy.

Crystal Chandelier for Baby’s Nursery!

Hello! We are putting the finishing touches on baby girl’s nursery, and we cannot wait to share it with you. But first, we want to give you a sneak peak of her glamorous crystal chandelier from Lighting New York. We could not be happier with this Maria Theresa 5 Light Semi Flush Mount. It looks elegant, and adds sparkle to the whole room. Our ceilings are 8′ tall, so we did not want anything that would hang too low. The semi flush mount was the perfect choice. The crystals were individually wrapped, and superior quality. Ordering was a breeze with Lighting New York. Mr. AList did a great job hanging it! It set the tone for her very glamorous room!

 

 

AListBaby Loves: House of Antique Hardware

The nursery is almost complete! I look forward to getting the photos taken, and sharing all of the fun with our AListBaby readers! Here is a little sneak peak…in the form of gorgeous crystal doorknobs for our nursery, courtesy of House of Antique Hardware. These glamorous door knobs are like jewelry for baby girl’s room. I must say, before the nursery design process, I never gave appropriate consideration to a room’s hardware. Friends, it can make a big difference in a room! We chose the Classic Rope Rosette set with Diamond Crystal Knobs.

 

The Perfect Bassinet

My mother-in-law made us the most glamorous bassinet ever! I am just thrilled with it, and I adore the white dupioni silk. AListBaby girl is going to sleep peacefully in her gorgeous new bed.

A Lawn in the Kitchen!

As we all know, having a baby in the house dramatically increases your dish washing! That’s why we love Boon‘s line of counter top drying racks. They look like a spring day’s lawn on your counter and are great to dry dishes, bottles, and food storage containers with. The flexible grass blades can accommodate most anything. We also love the “stem” which holds nipples and sippy cup parts. Both are BPA-free and PVC-free, and can be washed in the dishwasher.

 

 

Nursery Paint Color: Melted Ice Cream?

Let the nursery decorating begin! We know we want to add decorative crown molding to the room. And we know we want to have the ceiling made smooth and painted, along with the room. I have decided on a color scheme of pale pink, white and silver. (I know..BIG surprise!) We have a contractor coming today to take a look at the room and give us an estimate. I found some thick, elaborate dental and egg molding today that Mr. AList and I both love. We also purchased a ceiling medallion that will look gorgeous atop a glimmering chandelier that we may be on the hunt for all summer. Now the big question is paint color! I am leaning toward Melted Ice Cream by Benjamin Moore, but I have a list of eight colors that I will be trying on our wall in the next few weeks. Below is a photo of a room painted in Melted Ice Cream.

HALO Safe Sleep Crib Set

Crib bedding has come a long way, baby! We know that bulky bumpers are a no-no, and this smart HALO Safe Sleep Crib Set gives mommies a coordinated look, and keeps baby snug and safe. They set includes a 2-in-1 adjustable SleepSack Swaddle, SleepSack Wearable Blanket, two 100% cotton jersey fitted crib sheets (one solid and one coordinating print) and one coordinating decorative crib skirt. The 2-in-1 adjustable SleepSack Swaddle allows for swaddling arms in or out. The SleepSack Wearable Blanket replaces loose blankets that can cover a baby’s face and interfere with breathing; plus it’s a cozy blanket your baby can’t kick off, for a better night’s sleep. No lose blankets or bumpers mean a safer sleep! The sets come in a variety of colors and patterns.

AListBaby Loves: Bebek Collection

We are loving Evenflo’s new Bebek collection! This soft, wide-base nipple also provides an easier latch for baby when transitioning from breast to bottle. With a modern, ergonomic design and shape, the bottles (available in 2oz, 5oz and 8oz sizes) are also comfortable for parents and baby to hold. The line is available at Buy Buy Baby!

Beyonce and Jay Z’s Baby Nursery

Check out the $3,500 crib Beyonce bought for baby Blue Ivy. Maybe we just have to see it in person to get the vibe.
