While it’s no secret that I was hoping for a boy when we first found out we were pregnant – there are a more than a few incredible perks to having a baby girl. First are the INCREDIBLY cute clothes and bows (of course), second is the future possibility of mani-pedis and shopping trips with your little girl, and third is getting to do a FABULOUS nursery. I saw a picture on pinterest (see here) with some limited edition Ellie Cashman Wallpaper from London and I was sold. Kenzie’s whole nursery is based around it.
So I special ordered the same wallpaper (here) and had it professionally installed – yes I am crafty but I don’t trust myself to get that perfect. All in all the wall cost $700 including install, smoothing, and the paper. Then using some other ideas across Pinterest we added the Sloan Crib from Pottery Barn as well as the beautiful glider in the corner. Added a couple other custom pieces and a play tent from Restoration Hardware. I really love the unique and special doll you can see sitting in the chair – its by Dollies for Lou and it was the FIRST thing I purchased when I found out I was having a girl. I love the “rag doll” look but with the real hair and charming facial expressions. I can’t wait until Kenzie is old enough to really appreciate it…Then I’ll buy her all of them. haha.
We also added a dresser and some cool art work including the dream catcher, 3 gold round mirrors, and beautiful handmade wood frame (inside which is an INCREDIBLE photo from Kenzie’s newborn shoot – see my previous post).
To finish we brought in some of our favorite products (discussed in detail in a previous post here) including the peanut changer (a GODSEND) and the Dock-a-tot that Kensington cannot sleep without (also makes travel super easy). Then we finished with a homemade butterfly/crown mobile and of course – baby KB.
Ultimately we love it. Its not too childlike – definitely has some aspects of adult sophistication – while still being whimsical and beautiful for our baby angel. It was so fun and already I’m chomping at the bit to do the next nursery…
