Wow, can’t believe another month has flown by since I first showed you guys my nursery inspiration! At the time, I was still pulling together the colors, textures and samples that appealed to me. It’s pretty exciting to see how far the room has come since then, and I’ve been busy choosing wallpaper, hanging light fixtures (or let’s be honest…pointing to where I want the light fixture hung) and unpacking accessories as I wait for some of the bigger furniture pieces to arrive. Are y’all ready for a peek at how it’s all coming together? Click through the images to see the nursery in progress!

There are so many decisions to make with a nursery and the incredible number of cute things out there makes it tough to narrow down, so it really helped to start the process by refining my inspiration, then sticking with that color palette and general vibe throughout…

Remember my original inspiration board? I keep referring back to it to make sure that the pieces I’m adding are in line with the neutral, slightly-exotic vibe I’m hoping to create. I love how it’s coming together as an extension of my personal style…a room that feels in line with the rest of my home’s aesthetic, but still feels like a cozy haven that’s specially for baby.

Did you see the before photo of the room? Even though I love the light grey-blue that the walls are already painted, I thought they could use a little jazzing up… so I decided to cover one accent wall in wallpaper. After ordering a few samples to try out in the space, I settled on this Vintage Flock paper from Graham & Brown (part of their collaboration with one of my fave designers, Kelly Hoppen.) It’s the perfect balance of embellished, feminine and subtle.

Next up: the light fixture. I knew I wanted something eye-catching hanging above the baby’s crib, but a traditional chandelier seemed way too formal for this space. It was love at first sight when I spotted the beachy, glamorous Malibu Chandelier from Serena & Lily. I love the bone colored beads and earthy frayed tassel contrasted against the refined wallpaper.

Let the fun begin! It’s amazing how much more excited I get when boxes are delivered for baby than when they’re just for me and Adam…

I was thrilled to open up the box that housed my Serena & Lily Herringbone Throw. Though I ultimately stuck with the “stone” color to stay in line with the monochromatic feel of the room, it was a tough choice between that and all the other gorgeous shades available. I really want them all.

Doesn’t the throw look gorgeous draped over my new Presidio Glider? I love the clean, modern lines, and the plush cushions are going to be so nice to sink into during nighttime feedings.

Even though the room already has a flat-weave carpet, I wanted to add an extra layer of coziness with a flokati rug. This one from Serena & Lily feels so luxurious and will make playtime on the floor really comfy.

I love the way the rug provides a layer of plushness under all the furniture, including this Chakki ottoman. I’ve been craving one of these pieces for ages, and the nursery created the perfect excuse to finally get one since it doubles as extra seating for guests, and a place to rest my feet when I’m lounging in the glider. The only issue was deciding which one to get…

The Indian-inspired carvings on the chakki’s wood base give it an exotic vibe, and the cushions can be slipcovered in a gorgeous array of Serena & Lily’s linen and cotton canvas fabric choices. I settled on the bisque diamond, which feels really timeless to me. Which one’s your favorite?

I brought so many cute things home from last weekend’s baby shower that it’s really time for me to start getting the closet organized! Do any of you moms out there have advice for arranging baby’s clothes? Do you sort by age? Or by type of item? I know she’s going to outgrow her newborn things so quickly, so I’m trying to get a good assortment of outfits that will fit her later, too!

These rope bin baskets will be an invaluable organizing tool, I have no doubt. I’m planning to use the smaller square baskets on her bookshelf for corraling toys and books, and the taller one will make a perfectly chic dirty clothes hamper.

I’m planning on having baby sleep (very peacefully, I hope!) in this Sausalito Moses Basket for the first couple of months by our bed. Isn’t it sweet? Looks like such a cozy place to rest her head, I almost wish they made one in an adult size!

The nursery wouldn’t be complete without some great art on the walls! I’ve been stocking up on some great pieces from Minted’s art prints to add a modern punch of color to the otherwise monochromatic room. I’m going to frame this one (in pale pink) really big as a constant reminder to our little peanut…

I’m still waiting on the crib to arrive, but I’m all ready to go with baby’s bedding! I decided to stick with Serena & Lily’s nursery beddings basics in white, then add subtle pattern with this aqua trellis crib sheet, some patterned throw pillows and a textured quilt that I can drape over the railing.
