The nursery

For those who read L & L by Lizzie religiously, you’ve read briefly about my home renovations and it has definitely been a long, tiring process while pregnant! Projects bring out the best and the worst in people and are always stressful, but they’re worth it. If you’re passionate about reinventing a space, renovating a home (or room), or doing a smaller-scale project, go for it! Don’t be afraid of the obstacles and issues that pop up. Our living room hardwood floor still needs to be installed this week (and there are more projects to come after Greyson is born), but the nursery is finished and absolutely gorgeous. I couldn’t have done this without my amazing, incredibly talented fiancé. As promised, I want to share photos of the nursery and with each project, I will post pictures and advice! I have always loved designing and shopping for new, beautiful pieces.

Welcome to Greyson’s nursery…

The theme of the nursery is Woodland (which plays off of the Cabin theme in our bedroom). I created a space that is playful, fresh, and woodsy. It is not only a space for our baby, but a space Andrew and I will be spending a lot of time in, too. There’s also a pretty bassinet and swing in our bedroom and of course, the living room will be a family space. I do believe a nursery should be a space for mom and baby (dad included).

Little accents are everything! Once the hard work is over, add personal touches, such as candles, photographs, and special decor. Grey is one of my favorite colors and it’s one of those colors that works beautifully with natural aspects, such as wood. The grey, blue, and bright white mesh perfectly with the wood and rustic accents. I wanted wood present in the nursery (the antique bench, the wooden side table, and the birch tree branches).

We also decided to add a holiday touch to the nursery, too! Christmas and Hanukkah are just around the corner and although Greyson will be too young to remember his first Holiday season, Andrew and I will remember every moment spent together ♥️✨

6FB2484F-7BB2-4EEF-85B1-AC480B6025A2Thank you to all of my amazing friends and family for thoughtful gifts and so much love. Thank you to my incredible, hardworking fiancé for painting, installing the hardwood floor, and assembling every piece of furniture. We make a killer design team, but I literally wouldn’t have been able to achieve such a creative, beautiful space without you. You’re already the best daddy in the world!

Stay tuned for photos of our finished living room and all other future projects…
