Tell us about your window treatments, lighting, rugs, wall decor and accessories. Where did you buy them - were any handmade? For window treatments I actually picked up some fabric at my local fabric store and sewed something simple. I chose a bamboo blind from Bou Claire to darken the room for naps, and to bring out the walnut wood floor.
My white shag rug is from Ikea, and really warmed up the space and tied it all together.
The wood change pad box was made by my husband and really looks great on the dresser.
There is a picture of tiny feet which was taken of my daughter Claire when she was 5 days old.
The lighting is a great shade I picked up at homesense.
The white rocking chair was my mother's and is special.
How did you store all your baby goodies? In baskets, on shelves? I store most my of my baby goodies in baskets in her closet, or in the drawers of the dresser. The basket on the dresser holds her wipes, and some cloth diapers.
How long did it take you? Was it easy, fun, difficult? What was your favorite part? It took a couple of months, it was fun but I found it very hard to find the perfect bedding set.
My favourite part was coming home, and putting my daughter Claire in her nursery. (The final touch that made the room perfect.)
Did you do the entire nursery on your own or did someone help you? Who? What did they do? I did it on my own, my husband put together the crib and made the change pad.
What do you love most about your little one's finished room? So peaceful, fresh and fun.
