I've noticed how much faster life whizzes by nowadays, so documenting everything has become somewhat of an obsession. I wanted something to look back on and remember the room we brought her home to, so here are photos of Margot's nursery.
I immediately knew how I wanted the room to look and feel—organic, minimal and gender neutral. A majority of the furniture is from IKEA, while small vintage and handmade pieces are weaved in.
I made this wall-hanging to add a little something to the space above her crib. It's definitely my favorite piece I've made...and so easy too!
Made by local artist, Ness Lee, this cute and quirky Sumo man is Margot's #1 sleeping buddy.
I bought these ceramic air plant cradles a couple of years ago from a shop called Mudpuppy, and they immediately came to mind as the perfect natural and organic touch for the space.
I designed these black and white prints specifically for the nursery. Margot especially loves the animals—she's always chatting it up with her "friends on the wall" during her changes.
Wooden toys were a must for her nursery. The time and care taken into handcrafting each and every toy is so special...and I just think they look nice! The whale (obviously not a toy, but my favorite piece) and the train were both found at thrift stores, while the others were gifts from my sister from a recent trip to Prague.
The nursery really is my favorite room in the house. All I wanted was for Margot to wake up to a happy space that felt light, airy and natural, and because we'd be spending a lot of time in it, for the room to be a place we both loved being in. I'm really happy with how it turned out and I'm looking forward to creating so many good memories here!
