baby harper’s nursery


back in february i gave you a sneak peek of baby harper’s nursery.  well now that harper is days away from coming into this world i’m back to show you the reveal.  it was such a joy designing this nursery for my friends jenny and brock.  i enjoyed every minute of it and got so excited as everything was coming together.

i designed the room around the silk plaid fabric.  the colorful plaid was originally used  as window panels in her guest bedroom that i designed a couple of years ago.  i couldn’t believe how well the vintage circus fabric matched it when i first found it.  it was like they were made for each other. 

Picture 038edit  DSC04216editfor artwork we decided that jenny should commission one of her friends to do a painting of the carousel scene in the bumper fabric.  she also got a wonderful shower gift from a friend with harper’s initials painted on it.  how cute are her initials!!!  “hee”

i knew i wanted to do something unusual for the changing table.  when jenny found this beat up dining buffet at a flea market i knew it was “the one.”

we turned this beast into a beauty by adding a few coats of paint and some new anthropologie hardware.

we used an antique that jenny had bought previously purchased at an estate sale as harpers dresser.  i added a mirror bought at homegoods above it.  the mirror was a little too pink to begin with but after a light brushing of antique white it was the perfect color.

the precious school desk and chair was also found at an antique store.  i had the itty bitty chair slipcovered in a neutral fabric and added a sash to the bath with the same vintage balloon fabric from her bedding.

i placed the sweetest gift of all on the top of harper’s shelves.  it’s a vintage-like train that jenny’s husband gave her last christmas…soon after we had selected the vintage circus fabric.  i also added pages from vintage nursery rhyme books to photo frames throughout the shelves and the room.

i can’t wait until jenny’s sweet little harper arrives and comes home to her nursery.
