{Nursery Reveal}


So, I had wanted my favorite photographer friend to capture Oliver's nursery for me, but the day that she was here (the day of my baby shower), she mentioned that because there isn't much natural light streaming in throughout the day, it wasn't ideal for the impromptu photo session. Sooo.....I thought I would take it upon myself to snap a few photos of it anyway, before it really gets cluttered up with the stuff that the baby really needs (LOL).

Here she is in all of her (instagram-lightened-up-photo) glory.....

**Note: It's a circle tour - starts at the entryway and circles around to the right and back to the door.

(Sorry for the photo overload. I just wanted to make sure to show it all!!)


**I am still trying to find the perfect spot for some of my favorite items, specifically the owl from one of my besties that I shared in my previous baby-stuff post. The crate from her that I love made it in as a toy chest beside the crib. I am just looking for the perfect place for the owl :)

**No, I did not make dog portraits of our two fur-babies. LOL! The dog portraits above the crib were a total fluke. As you know, I am an avid 'Marshall's' shopper. Well, one day while perusing, I stumbled upon those two dog prints stretched on canvases. It just so happened that the only two that they had were the exact kind of dogs that we have - a Yorkie and a Black Lab. So, alas, they had to be ours. $16.99 each well spent!! Now Oliver's sisters will be watching over him while he sleeps, and the orange in the prints compliments the closet doors and the gallery wall prints. :)

**I decided against hanging the handmade hot air balloon mobile. At the end of the day, it wasn't needed, and I wasn't thrilled with the way that it looked. Not bad. Not great. So, I left it out.

**The instagram setting that I chose to use ('RISE') really lightened everything up a lot, but you all know that the true colors are school-bus yellow (as I have been calling it), gray, black, and crisp white :). I am not a photographer by any means, so this is the best I could do ;)

I hope you like it as much as I do!!! Now bring on the B-A-B-Y!

  6. Wow Lisa! You have a great eye! I found you through Primitive & Proper. I am getting ready to decorate our soon to be son's nursery and this is great inspiration. I love the mix of modern, vintage and classic. Is your rocker from Babies r Us? I think I have the same one pinned on pinterest.

  7. truly amazing. i love every perfect detail. congrats on your impending arrival!

  8. I absolutely adore the fabric mix and colors you used. My daughter is expecting her 1st child in April. They only have a small apt. right now, but I'm pinning this for the future :). (We don't know if it's a girl or boy.)

  9. I have the SAME owl pillow from Urban Outfitters (that is what I exchanged my HANUS pink skull from Roy for!) Owl's are my new obsession...So if you find any, give me a ringy-ding-ding:) Oliver is going to LOVE his new room:) xoxo
