I did not get pregnant just to have an opportunity to decorate a nursery but it's definitely a perk. Her little space in our home has been a work in progress for months but it finally feels finished. We live in an 1970's, just under 600 square foot duplex, complete with wooden doors & half windows. It's not aesthetically pleasing but we love it here.
Designing this room was a feat because not only is our 2nd bedroom teeny tiny (so-teeny-tiny that I needed to borrow Lexi's wide angle lens to make her room look like a room & not a closet,) it also doubles as our laundry room. I needed to create enough storage for her things, knowing she's without a closet, but also keep the room functional as a place we do our laundry. Apartment living, it's good fun.

Product breakdown:
+ mid century dresser : thrifted & refinished
+ mid century dresser hardware : brass bar pulls
+ rose gold baskets : home goods
+ wood diaper & wipe holder : target (I wasn't able to find it online but you can find it in store in the Nate Berkus office supply area.)
+ gold foil manti temple print : collectivity lane
+ grey & chartreuse dish : target clearance
+ geometric lamp : target, again. I believe this lamp was from Nate Berkus' (he is my favorite) summer line from last year. McKay gave it to me for Christmas, so it may be a tough one to find. It was originally black with a panel of gold but it felt too heavy in her room so I refinished it. Land of Nod makes a similar shape, if you can't part ways, here.
+ tufted chair : cute-as-a-button erin chair from world market. This chair was purchased a few years ago, but we moved it into the nursery when McKay surprised me with another chair I had fallen in love with for Christmas. It worked out rather nicely.
+ pompom, lumbar pillow : home goods
+ rabbit stuffed animal : finkelstein's center
+ white, book ledges : ikea
+ curtains : fabric from JoAnn's. Homemade with the much needed help from Bri.
