Isn't it Lovely?!

My clients Scott and Ashli hired me to help transform their tired guest room into a brand new nursery in preparation for welcoming their sweet BABY GIRL, Averi Rose!

Our initial inspiration simply began with this glassybaby trio and Ashli's love for a Farmhouse Style. Other than that, both Scott and Ashli were very open to ideas and suggestions, which is an absolute DREAM!

I love to utilize mood boards for design projects! It keeps our focus and vision at the forefront while we make decisions along the way.

As soon as I saw the space, the new layout was established. I also immediately knew I wanted some kind of texture-y focal point above the crib but...more on that later! (So very technical, I know!)

Once, we agreed upon the needs and wants for the space, I got to work finding specific furniture and decor options for Scott and Ashli to choose from.

We also agreed the existing wall color would be the perfect back drop and honestly, this rarely EVER happens! But I always say, if it works-don't change it! (For a similar paint color, I recommend Windsor Greige by Sherwin-Williams.) Next, we unified the larger furniture pieces by keeping them neutral and in this case, white. Finally, we layered in the accent colors in our decor selections, keeping a soft, delicate feel.

Okay, okay...let's see more of the transformation!

A much needed and fun change was the lighting! We switched out the track lighting for the Zander beaded flush mount chandelier from Overstock. |$134.99| We also utilized the small wall right inside the door. I loved this simple wood grid from Hobby Lobby to showcase the glassybabys and Ashli's own BABY SHOES!

Then, BEHIND the door we added much needed book storage. So SIMPLE, right?! These are the IKEA MOSSLANDA |$12.99| picture ledges. We love how they are both accessible but tucked away all at the same time!

The floral wall decor was inspired by various paper floral designs I've perused on-line and loved. But I really wanted greater depth and texture, more of a pop! So, I used various sized foam florals, faux floral bouquets and wreaths-all found at Hobby Lobby. Once in the arrangement we were happy with, Scott secured them onto a wood backing for safe hanging. What do you think??


Ashli chose the Monarch Hill Crib by Little Seeds from Wayfair. |$179.99| (It is currently sold out but I linked a similar crib.) It looks very close to other options we liked that were five times the price! The crib skirt |$24.99|, crib sheet and rug are all from Target. |Rug is the Elvia Rug in Pink. Hand tufted, 5x8. $114.99|

Scott repainted the existing black dresser and hardware (see below) and it turned out so gorgeous! |Paint: Ultra White from Lowe's.| I found this round mirror at HomeGoods |$39.99| and I'm obsessed with the antiqued, loop edge! We repeated the floral touches with this custom designed "isn't she lovely" print by Rachel at Rachel Johnson Calligraphy Co. It really finishes off this side of the room and provides wonderful balance and detail!

Before + After

I found the floor lamp |$64.99| and occasional table |$69.99| at Target. While I scored the bunny canvas at HomeGoods |$24.99|, it's also available at Overstock.

For the windows, we replaced the curtain rod with a telescoping, room darkening rod from Bed Bath & Beyond |$24.99| then, added the white ruffle blackout curtains, also from Target! |$24.99 each|

The swivel glider was Ashli's find from Wayfair! |$219.99| The color is sand, it's a linen but it is really soft! It's not too big and we loved the classic style. Plus, the back isn't blocking the window. (Personal pet peeve, right here!)

Scott also removed the annoying mirrored closet doors and replaced them with simple bi-fold doors that makes accessing the closet so much easier. It also provides a much cleaner look, especially for a smaller space!

Before + After

We are totally in love with this newly editing room! It feels bright, airy and SWEET.

Just in time for baby's arrival! Congratulations!

Thank you for following along!

Live Beautifully,
