Planning the Nursery :: Ready for Baby!

July 25th, 2012

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!

  1. I just knew this space would be beautiful! I LOVE it! The bed is amazing and love the calmness of the space. So happy for you!

  3. Harper says:

    Lovely! The wallpaper and chandelier are my favorite details.

  4. 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!

  13. Daniella says:

    Wow! So hard to believe it’s already been this long! I feel like was just a few weeks ago that you posted your big announcement! The nursery looks absolutely lovely. A cozy little haven… beautiful!

    • Camille Styles says:

      Thanks Daniella – and I agree! This pregnancy has flown by… I really can’t believe she’s about to be here. Totally surreal, and I can only imagine how much the time will fly once she’s born. It is scary to know that she’ll be turning 1 before I know it!!

  14. It is stunning!!!! So serene and calm!

  15. You’ve got great taste (obviously)! I love how classy this room is. Not overly glamorous or gender-based, and it goes perfectly with your beautiful home. Congrats on the (soon-to-be-here) little one!

  37. Camille, these pictures are simply stunning – as are you.

    Quite Fondly,

  39. Thanks Camille. I can personally attest that in person, this space is just as tranquil and lovely as it is in the photos. Can’t wait to see it filled with your little girl!

  40. Molly says:

    I waited all day to look at this so that I didn’t have to look at it from an I*Phone screen. You are so beautiful. The nursery is so beautiful. She is so beautiful. Beauty, beauty, beauty. I love her so much already!

  41. Oh Camille. What a lucky little girl to be welcomed into such a warm, loving environment. Every last detail is just perfect. Re:baby booties…as soon as she is ready for shoes See Kai Run shoes are incredible. Flexible, adorable and they hold up to busy little feet. Best wishes to you during this last month!!!

  42. Annie Hall says:

  44. Sophee says:

    It looks perfect Camille, love how beautiful you’ve made it! Soon now 🙂 So excited for you guys!

  45. Geneva says:

    Camille, this space just radiates serenity, coziness, and love! I love the white, textured aesthetic for a little one’s room. Although I am a few years from a baby of my own, I’m tempted to buy that Restoration Hardware rocking chair now and hoard it for the future! Congratulations, what a beautiful room. 🙂

  46. […] it is there – sorry ladies.) Anyway… the other really fun thing from this week is that I finally got to show you guys my nursery, and I was overwhelmed by the sweet words and great advice that you’ve all been sharing. […]

  47. Amy says:

    I remember just sitting in the nursery prior to my son’s arrival too! I would daydream for hours. It’s a special time that should be cherished.

  50. Rachie says:

    Its is perfect Camille, so beautiful and little one is going to love it! Particularly love the rocking horse and the chandelier xx

  51. Linn says:

    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.

  52. Tracy says:

    So soft and elegant – love this neutral nursery! Love also your dress! I’m pregnant and on the hunt for a white dress for my shower..mind sharing where you found your dress? Thank you!!

  53. Erin says:

    So sorry, but now that you’ve had the baby do you realize what a (insert descriptive word here) you sound like in this post? NONE of this is important. Your baby could sleep in a cheap Ikea crib in the corner of your room and be just as happy and loved.

    • Camille Styles says:

      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. 😉

  54. Jessica says:

    This is an absolutely gorgeous room. I checked on some of the items featured here and honestly, who can afford these in a recession?? The cost of the changing table alone made my eyes bug out!
    We are, however, inspired to make the space for our baby serene and beautiful and will be trolling Craigslist and resale shops like crazy!
    Thank you for the beautiful inspiration.

  57. Gina Langford says:

    Hi Camille!

    Absolutely LOVE the space. Would you mind sharing where your found the curtains? Now that you’ve used the nursery, do you find it necessary to have black-out lined curtains or are sheer (linen) ones fine in your opinion?? Thanks!


    • 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

    Hi Camille!

    I love your nursery!!! I was wondering, would you mind sharing where you found the flag banner that is wrapped around the lamp? I’m in love with the colors.



  60. Nicole Clarke says:

    What an amazing nursery! I was wondering what paint color you used n the wall. It’s so fresh, clean, and happy! I love it!

  61. Mindy says:

    Where did you end putting the cute pink Paris map print?

  62. Merry says:

    I love the Love,Love,Love you print from Minted. Where did you order the frame?

  63. Rachel says:

    I love the addition of the bunting around the lamp shade, would you please share where you found it? Thanks!

  64. As an avid reader of classic literature, I MUST know where you got these mini-versions of classic lit. I want my child to grow up reading and enriching his/her mind from the get-go. I’m afraid the adult versions would be too advanced for just a wee little tot.

  65. […] IMAGINE how gorgeous it would be chez a little Bambino??  Or better yet, in my bedroom?  I die.  Camille Styles (do you know her??  She’s a DOLL!) used a similar style called The Malibu Chandelier from […]

  66. […] always so budget friendly. The ShopCandelabra version is a smaller but a savings of $400! Camille used the S&L option in her little girl’s nursery and it’s absolutely gorgeous! Do […]

    Beautiful nursery! Would you mind sharing the paint color?

  69. I would also love to know the paint color if you are willing to share! Just beautiful! We are considering a very similar scheme for our nursery! 🙂
