Violet's Nursery
I decided that I needed to capture some of my favorite parts of Violet's room. We have been talking about moving this summer so there is a chance that we won't be staying here. I obviously couldn't do a whole lot in her room because we are renting. So I didn't paint and I couldn't put up curtains and I had to leave the awful blinds. The other hard part was having to make this room a nursery and a guest room. So while I would love to have all her toys and baby things in there right now it just wasn't practical. Everything was pulled from different places and stages of our marriage and some from before Mike and I even  met. The dresser below is an antique given to us by my parents. The Mirror I found at a thrift store a couple years ago. The frame is from an old antique painting that my parents had reframed and then let me have the original. I made the chalk board inside it. The prints above her bed are from my textile tour through Europe when we were in Paris seeing a Valentino exhibit. The Bunny and the lion and blocks are from Vi's best girlfriends Sam and Lindz. Her bow box is from TJ Maxx. I made her bedding and bunting flags. My sister Kate made the quilt on her crib and my mom made the quilt on the bed. I made the bedding on the guest bed. The dresser in the corner is from ikea. The purple quote is from my Harding girl cousins along with a lot of her great books. The polka dot wall I did out of contact paper. There are so many little touches I love about her room. It is happy and bright . There are of course things I would change and always things I would add but that might have to wait until we move. For now here is a little peek into our home

 Yes I know the ugly humidifier is showing but I honestly did not feel like unplugging it and then having to crawl under the dresser to try and plug it back in so it stayed.

Hi Lauren,

I discovered your blog through a mutual friend's "like" on Instagram... your nursery is perfection! I'd love to feature it on my decorating blog, would you mind?
