one room challenge linking event week five: it's all in the details!

5.05.2016

Welcome back! Here we are in week five (whaaaaaat) of Calling It Home's One Room Challenge linking event, which means we only have one week left until the big room reveals! It also means I am very, very--did I mention very?--pregnant.

This spring's ORC has kept me busy working on a nursery for our little girl, who is due any day now! Hopefully she, too, will hold off (at least) one more week to see her room...and to give me time to tour all of the amazing transformations by the featured designers and my fellow guest participants--so. much. talent.

As for my own room transformation, you can catch up my progress over the past five weeks below:


So by now you have seen the bigger design elements in the nursery: the paint, furniture, rug, window treatments, lighting and a special clothing display...

And today I'm going to show you the little details that I'm hoping will pull the design together and help to polish off the final look!

Many of these details were gifts we received from our registry, which we created using BabyList. BabyList allowed us to register for items from all sorts of different stores, from big box to boutiques, and we were very hashtagblessed to have such generous family members (shout out to Nana!) and friends!

So here we go--short and sweet compared to last week (thank God!):




I bought these two Babar posters from eBay and I think I am going to spray paint the black frame below yellow so it blends better in the softer space:

(As you can see, elephants and giraffes are kind of my jam...here's hoping our daughter inherits this affinity for safari animals.)

And last but not least, I am also planning to include some of my own baby clothes, books, and blankets in the nursery. I can't wait to finally show you everything next week!

Until then,

I adored Babar growing up.... probably the beginning of my love for France and anything related!! Everything is so cute and I can't wait to see both finished projects :) baby girl and her nursery!!

I love all the elephants and animals! The elephant basket and blanket are my favorites. Those are so adorable. What a special time for you. I remember decorating nurseries for my boys. Now, I'm doing a media room to handle all their gaming, hanging out, and smelly socks. But I'm putting my own twist on it. Good luck with this last week!

So exciting!!!!!! I can't decide what will be more exciting next week; finding out you had your babe, or seeing the reveal! JK - BABY WINS that hands-down!!!

Love everything you picked out. Do you know Three Sprouts brand? They have some cute animal themed organization and storage items. I just had a baby girl on the 29th and the snuggles are the best. Enjoy what is to come!
