Okay guys…it’s the 30-day countdown until baby! Can’t believe we’re so close to welcoming our little girl into the world, and I have to say that I’m already proud of her for having made it this far, growing stronger and more ready for the world week-by-week (she currently weighs in at about 5 1/2 pounds!) In preparation for her arrival, I’ve finally put the finishing touches on her nursery, and walking through the doorway feels like the cozy, safe haven that I dreamed of – hopefully providing a sense of calm that helps her sleep through the nights! It’s been so fun sharing this process with you guys, from the early days of gathering inspiration…to the in-progress planning and decorating…and finally to sharing the finished product! I want to give a special shout-out to Serena & Lily for being such amazing partners along the way, providing invaluable planning tips and inspiration for creating the nursery that’s a perfect reflection of our little family. So without further ado… click through the images (shot by Chad Wadsworth) to see how it all came together!


Working from my original inspiration board, I set out to create a calming oasis in a neutral palette with lots of little feminine flourishes.

I love this initial view through the arched doorway – the monochromatic palette is so serene, while all the textural details make it feel super cozy.

The spot where I’m *hoping* baby girl will spend many sleep-filled nights! I dressed the dreamy upholstered crib with Serena & Lily’s nursery basic bedding collection in white, then softened up the look by draping a soft quilt over the railing. When working in such a neutral palette, using a mix of textures (like the flokati rug, linen upholstery, plush quilting and woven basket) adds so much interest to a room.

The carvings on this chakki add an exotic touch to the space, and I love that this piece can double as a footrest when I’m using the glider or as extra seating when guests are hanging out in the nursery.

I’ve heard that a functional changing area is a must for any nursery – I’m sure I’ll really appreciate it when I’m changing 10 diapers a day! This one has a vintage-y french feel, and the white damascus mirror hanging above is such a statement piece. Its intricate inlay pattern makes it feel like something picked up at an exotic bazaar from a far-flung locale.

I created this little gallery wall using a couple of sweet art prints from Minted’s new collection and a framed photo of the “grandmothers” from my baby shower. The glider, throw and pillow are from Serena & Lily, and the lamp is from West Elm. Quite a cozy little corner, don’t you think?

I’m determined to turn her onto the classics early, so I’ve started collecting every single one of these gorgeous editions which double as bookshelf eye candy.

A few sweet little details to accessorize the bookshelf – knitted booties I picked up on our babymoon in Santa Barbara, a big piece of white coral and an assortment of cute stuffed creatures gifted from friends.

The bookshelf is from Restoration Hardware Baby & Child; storage baskets from Serena & Lily just waiting to be filled with toys! (and I love that they can be tucked out of site.)

Dresses from Sweet William, Pink Chicken and OshKosh Baby. I’m more than a little obsessed with all three.

This wood rocking horse adds the perfect vintage touch to the space – a timeless piece that I hope will become a family heirloom.

Sometimes during the day I go upstairs and spend a few minutes in the quiet space, just imagining all the precious memories that will be created here over the years. I can’t believe the room is about to be filled with the sights, sounds and scents of baby as she makes herself at home here!

This Malibu Chandelier is definitely one of my favorite pieces in the room. It’s earthy and exotic, and its fluttering beads will provide something interesting for baby to look up at over her crib. Wallpaper is the Vintage Flock pattern from Graham & Brown.

Is anything cuter that baby booties? I need to stock up on a few more, so let me know if y’all have any favorite sources!

My cousin watercolored this “And Then There Were Three” portrait of Adam, the baby and me, and it’s one of my favorite little keepsakes along with the photo of my mom holding me as a baby. Rocking bird from West Elm.

Thanks again to Chad for taking such beautiful photos of the space, and click here to check out my previous posts on the nursery planning process!

    So beautiful Camille and you are just glowing!! I Love the calm, quiet feeling. I’ve heard an atmosphere that you bring a baby into really shapes a child’s personality overtime. This is perfect. Also, my parents read me classics since I was really young as well and I go back to read some of my favorites once a year! Great idea!

    This really is a beautiful nursery!! You have excellent taste. But it also appears that you have very expensive taste! This nursery is extremely unrealistic for most people (which is probably why everyone loves it- they can only dream of such a place!). Personally, I think you could have created something equally amazing with a much lower budget, which would’ve really shown your talent! Most people don’t have 10k + to spend on a nursery, and they baby won’t know the difference anyway! I think it’s sad for most people to see this kind of extravagance in our current economy.

      Hey Erin – WOW, sorry to hear that you think I sound like a… well, not sure if I want to know where you’re headed with that! Totally agree that baby Phoebe is happier curled up in my arms than any other place. A beautiful nursery does not equal a happy or loved baby, and that’s never what I meant to imply with this post! As with the rest of my home, I take a lot of joy in being surrounded by beauty and tranquility, and since the nursery is a very special room in my house, I treated it as an extension of that aesthetic. This blog is a place where I enjoy sharing things in my life that I’m excited about…and hopefully it served as inspiration to some of our readers as well! But thank you for the (hopefully well-intentioned?) reminder about what really matters. And for the record, IKEA actually has some really cute cribs. 😉

      Hi Gina,

      Thanks so much! The curtains are from Restoration Hardware. That’s a good question about the black-out curtains because it’s something I really debated in the beginning. Phoebe actually doesn’t seem to need a totally blacked-out space for napping, and at nighttime, the room stays really dark, so that’s worked out fine for us. But I have lots of mom friends who swear by the blackout curtains for naptime, so I guess it varies! Good luck! xoxo
