Harper's Nursery Reveal!

When we found out we were expecting, I was so excited to get started on the nursery. Even before I knew if we were having a boy or girl, I knew I wanted a very calm, neutral and serene space. I wanted lots of pops of white to make the room feel crisp and airy.  

I'm really happy with how Harper's room turned out and I can't wait to share it with you all right now! I decided to add mint green to my color palette after not liking the way light pink was looking in the room. I think the mint green makes the space feel really fresh. I also installed wall bookshelves to add a pop of color to the otherwise neutral space.

The first two photos were taken by Allen Kramer during my maternity photo shoot and the rest were taken by me. Many thanks to Melissa at Fawn Over Baby for editing the color balance in these photos!



This shot was taken from the nursery door:


Our glider area/nook:


Book Shelf:


Harper's crib- I hate that I even have to put this disclaimer but she is not currently sleeping in her crib and when she does we will remove the bumpers and the netting will be pulled to the side so it is not in any way accessible to her. I may remove it completely.



Her dresser, which we also use as a changing table. Please note I removed the changing pad for these photos.  The gold prints don't read as well on camera as they do in real life---they are beautiful!

If there is something I missed, please leave me a comment and I will answer! I hope you all like Harper's nursery. It was definitely a labor of love to put it all together. One thing I may consider adding over time is a rug. I haven't quite found the perfect one just yet.

Have a wonderful week and thank you for reading (and for your patience as we've been settling in at home with our lovely new addition).

  2. Love everything - you are so talented at decorating! The grey color scheme is so soothing & beautiful, love the texture added by the faux sheepskin. The book ledge on the wall is a brilliant idea. You and Harper are going to have such a fun time together in here :-)

  3. A sweet room for a beautiful baby girl. Enjoy motherhood. It is a journey like no other. I noticed Harper's library. As a teacher and a Mimi always read to Harper. It affords a great educational foundation and a special time each day with your daughter.

  7. Beautiful room! You accomplished the calm and serene part. (As an aside, I don't think you "owe" anyone a disclaimer about the bumpers or netting, either. ;)

  8. So lovely! Congrats on the little one!

  14. So beautiful and calming...just what a baby needs! The mint green is perfect, I think! Love the H above the crib too! Oh, and my son has always slept with a bumper and I saw the questions about the nap nanny on instagram and we used it for many months and we love it too!

  15. Hey Veronika! Beautiful room! Congrats on your adorable baby girl! Moo Baa Lalala is my absolute favorite baby book. My baby boy just loves it. :) As a side note, while I know people will make rude comments about bumpers one way or another, I can tell you that I planned to remove our bumpers once our baby started sleeping in his room and when that day finally came (around 6 months), we actually decided he seemed safer and more comfortable with the bumpers. All that to say---you have to decide as a parent what you feel comfortable with and what you feel is the safest. I would guess that most of the people out there with really strong opinions probably do something on their own that isn't the safest thing possible. You'll figure it out as you go! And don't stress about baby-proofing yet...you have a long ways to go before that becomes a concern. Best wishes to you!

  16. It's the best nursery I've ever seen! Wow so pretty! She's a lucky girl

  17. absolutely lovely. I have been swooning over a similar color scheme for my next nursery whenever baby #2 comes along.

    ReplyDelete
  18. It's such a beautiful room! You did an amazing job. Love the neutral palette...will be very serene for baby girl! :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love how beautiful and simple it is! I struggled with the simple part myself and so have taken various items down as I decide they're unnecessary. Now it just looks incomplete... Harper's is lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  20. oh, it is GORGEOUS. Next baby I have, you're coming to NC to decorate for me :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Gorgeous room! I would love the ottoman for my son's nursery, but did not see it on the RH website link. Did you buy online or in store?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Beautiful! I love the chandelier, I hope to get one for Aubrey's room when we move into our new home. The bunny theme is so cute- love the wall prints and rocker. Your glider looks so cozy and that can definitely transition into another room once she grows. You did a great job, it's so calm, serene, and fresh.

  23. Just wanted to mention to you that we did a change pad on top of a dresser and we weren't using the buckle, so we tucked it underneath and it scratched the top of our dresser pretty badly. After we fixed it we put down some of that semi-thick shelf liner down under the change pad and it works great. Bonus - it keeps the change pad from sliding around!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Very calming. Will you be adding anything with bright or contrasting colors too? Young babies don't have strong vision so they're mostly stimulated by items high contrasts (e.g. black/white, black/red, etc). That's why a lot of baby mobiles are very colorful.

  25. Absolutely gorgeous!!!! Harper is one lucky little lady!

  26. oh hun it turned out just perfect! LOVE it!!

  56. Wowwww you truly are a gifted decorator. You should work for a home interior design magazine or something! :D Green/mint-ish colors are my favorite because they're natural and calming.

  58. Hi, congrats on the baby. I'm just wondering if you're going to be posting any more fashion/beauty updates or is it going to be more about baby stuff from now on? I feel like all my favorite bloggers have turned into nothing but baby stuff :( I'm def nowhere near the age of having a child, so I'm wondering if I'll have to find another other blogs to read now? Thank you

    ReplyDelete
  62. So pretty! Even though we went the opposite route with our nursery (lots and lots of colors), I think this monotone gray is nicely done :) The chandelier was a great idea, it really makes the room.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I love this! You have fantastic taste. I've been in search of your ottoman. I can't find it on RH Baby or RH. Did you purchase in store or on-line?

    ReplyDelete
  64. Beautiful nursery! I love the feel of the room. I've been searching for your ottoman. I can't find it on RHBaby.com or RH.com. DId you purchase in store?

    ReplyDelete
  65. @deidreI would call the store. I don't see it online but it was online a few weeks ago. I ordered at the store to get free shipping but they ordered it from the website. Call customer service they can help! :)

  66. Absolutely beautiful! I am positive that Harper loves her room!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I love the curtains! Are these the same ones you have downstairs in your kitchen? I know you said you purchased them from RH Baby & Child, but I was wondering what style and color they are. They have optic white and warm white on the site. I absolutely love your style!
