House Tour: Nurseries

 

It's that time again! I'm back continuing on our house tour. We've been slowly wandering around the house and so far I've shown you our very child-centric family room, our kitchen, our in-process dining room and our in-need-of-love outdoor spaces in this fun linkup with Andrea at Momfessionals. Today we're going to wander back towards the bedrooms and look at our nurseries.

Yes, nurseries. Plural. For those of you popping in for the link up, we have 18 month old twin boys and a week old son. Three boys in 18 months!

Our family of five!
 

 

I can't believe I've never shared pictures of the twins completed nursery on the blog before. I shared a number of in progress shots, but never the completed room! I'm guessing I was waiting for it to be completed. At this point, it has been 18 months and we still haven't gotten the frames all hung (or even purchased!). I actually thought we might get it done while Casey was on paternity leave this week. Ha! I had forgotten how tiring a newborn is! No work like that has occurred!

As with every single room in our house, these rooms are both works in progress!

 

 

So, let's wander down the hallway to the big boys room...

The boys room as it is laid out now.
The room layout when they were smaller.
 

Some details.
 

The hutch then and now.
As you can see, the books have migrated all over the house!
 

Things to be hung.

  • Cribs: built by Casey (designed to combine the genius of the Baby's Dream safety gate with the beauty if the Restoration Hardware Jameson Crib)
  • Changing table: used by my sister (refinished by my mom and sister)
  • Dresser/Hutch: CraigsList (refinished by my mom and sister)
  • Bedding/Curtains/Mobiles: Jill McDonald's Adorable Dino
  • Dinosaur Heads: DwellStudio
  • Dog Bed (turned kid bench!): built by Papa Mike (Casey's Dad)
  • Afghans: knit by Aunt Jennifer
  • Name signs: made by me for the boys first birthday party
  • Baskets: HomeGoods
  • Hanging Dino Light: online somewhere! I can't find it anymore but it was an odd webpage and shipped direct from China
  • Any others you want -- just ask!
 

 

And now moving next door into James' room...

View from the door.
 

The crib and bedding.
 

The dressers on either side of the window.
 

Some details.
The frame arrangement should have train track going through it to complete the room border, but I didn't quite order enough. The pieces came while we were in the hospital but haven't been hung yet.
The black train (bottom left photo) is actually a humidifier!
 

Fun little bench.

  • Bedding/Floor Quilt: ordered from etsy sellers; fabric is from the Scoot Collection by Riley Blake
  • Poufs: Target (don't you remember the drama to buy them!)
  • Mobile: made by me! Tutorial to come at some point. I'd say soon but I make no promises!

As in the twins room, I would like to frame and hang James' Native Texan Certificate and a few cute prints and photos in an arrangement. But, we'll see when it happens!

 

I know that I'm biased since I designed them, but I am in love with both of these spaces. They are exactly what I envisioned and I couldn't be more pleased with the spaces my kiddos call their own. I'll treasure these next few years of cute themed bedrooms before the boys develop preferences and opinions and want to hang posters (ick!) on their walls.

  2. What a lovely home you have! I'm enjoying back reading your posts about the house tour. Your style and personality really came out in the look of every room. The twins' nursery looks amazing with the blue and green colors. Also, baby James' room is absolutely adorable. My favorite feature for both rooms are the wall decorations, from the letterings to the motifs. Kudos to you for the wonderful job in styling both rooms. Thanks for sharing!
