Pregnancy: My Nursery

I have been promising for weeks, even months, to show you baby B's nursery.  Unfortunately, things didn't start coming together until about three weeks ago.  I'm still missing a dresser (don't get me started on my issues with Amazon) but I can say with confidence that if she came tomorrow the nursery would be workable!  Considering that I'm now officially "full term" she could make an appearance any day now.  I'm just happy she now has a personalized space of her own.



When we first painted the nursery we were unaware of the baby's sex.  We decided on a light green because it's the perfect gender neutral color.  When we found out she was a girl I decided to play with pinks (of course) and other pretty pastels.  I really wanted an owl theme because, honestly, it's so easy to find owl related items in any store.





As you can see, a lot of my Hello Kitty collection has made it's way into her room :)




Her shoe collection is already quite impressive.  Looks like she takes after mom!


Her custom closet is done!  I opted out of regular closet doors and went for ruffled waterfall curtains instead.  I think it makes the room look a little bigger and adds an extra touch of femininity.

I should be getting her dresser in the next week or so and I'll be adding the finishing touches while I can.  Being on maternity leave is pretty nice but I feel like I always have something to do here at home.  I guess you can never be too ready!  What do you think?




  1. It looks so cute! I love her ruffled closet curtains!

  2. Oh, Ashley! That is darling! I love the color choice, and that ruffled curtain.

  3. This room looks fantastic!! I absolutely love the green, it's such a fun bright colour. All the owl details are fantastic and her closet is adorable!

  4. LOVE it. Such great colour choices.

  5. Aw it's so cute, I love the wall color and I also love what you did with the closet!

  6. it is soo adorable Ashley, you two did a fantastic job! i also esp like no closet doors, I think it softens the room a ton actually. and the colors are just perfect.

    B's room looks so cute! The custom closet is so impressive, and you're totally right about the ruffled curtains instead of the traditional doors.

    Best of luck to you and Kevin in the next couple days/weeks! Can't wait to meet this little girl of yours!


  8. this is too adorable! love what you both did to the nursery! and don't get me started with that closet, she's going to be as fashionable as her mother <3


  9. So bright and very adorable! I love all the Hello Kitty toys. Hope she will enjoy playing with them eventually too! Lovely job!

  10. aaaaahhhh! that is so cute! i love the owls! great nursery you have set up!

  11. I love this, but I really hope you won't force femininity on your child if it's not what she turns out to love.

    1. Not to start a huge debate, but I think *any* sort of effort of this caliber shows she'll be an amazing mother, because she already cares enough about her unborn child to make a special space for her, even if the style will change over time. I think the assumption that femininity is being "forced" is a little harsh. I think it just shows a lot of love and caring. I think too many people take this kind of thing for granted, but trust me when I say, not everyone gets a beautiful nursery before they are even born... In other words, I think this sort of effort is to be commended! <3

  12. It looks adorable. I did a post on a wall we painted in the nursery but other than that we have a long way to go and so much to so. I hope to get it sorted soon x

  13. Clearly you put a lot of love into it, it looks great! :) Love the owl theme!

  18. Such an adorable room.. love the light green and pink bits thrown out. I can't get over how cute those teeny clothes are in the closet!!!

  19. Wow, this is really beautiful Ashley! I love the green with all the pink and pastels - such a nice change to all the yellow, pink, beige etc walls that you see around for girls these days. My nursery is not even completed yet as far as hanging art on the walls goes! I need to get on the ball considering my little guy is 6 months soon! Best wishes for a happy and quick labor and delivery :-)

  21. Simply adorable and so colourful!

    That closet is fun and I love your collection of Hello Kitty.


  22. It's so pretty and strangely what I imagine a little Bianca to live in! Honestly, I can't wait to see how you two transform her room as she grows up. I love the closet and owls + hello kitty = a little girls dream. Also I really want her chair. It's kind of perfect.

  23. That closet is gorgeous and all the cute shoes!! I may already have a few pairs of shoes for my future's a problem.
    I love the green paint, this is absolutely darling Ashley!

  24. I love that you went with green instead of the usual "gender neutral" yellow. I always thought I'd do green too when that time comes along. I think the touches of pink are so cute too. I love that she has a shoe collection already too. Baby shoes are just so cute.

  25. awwww how beautiful I love everything!!! I haven't been able to do alot of prepping yet cause Im waiting on my shower but everything looks beautiful you have done such a great job and the baby can come any minute now what a great feeling to have !!!

  26. I looove all the colors- and that hello kitty collection!! And not to mention her adorable shoe collection- she's going to be one stylish little tot ;) You did an amazing job here!

  27. I love the pre-collected Hello Kitty collection. I have a smaller one as well and that is *defiantly* going into my baby girl's bedroom (once I have a baby that is! ;D)

    1. You are too sweet! I could never give my collection up so I just passed it on :)


I read and appreciate every single comment!
