Happy New Year, everyone! It’s finally time for a long awaited post…a full nursery reveal! I love Caroline’s nursery so much and it’s definitely my favorite room in the house. It’s more feminine than any other room I’ve ever decorated, and I had lots of fun collecting and designing pieces so that I could create the perfect spot for a sweet girl. Many of the pieces of furniture and art have been used in other places in our home over the years, so it really didn’t take too long to pull this room together once we got settled in our new home.
I partnered with one of my favorite companies, Carousel Designs, for a few key pieces for Caroline’s nursery (I did for Jack’s nursery in Kansas too and you can see that post here) and they really tied the whole room together. For those of you who don’t know, Carousel Designs is a Veteran-owned company (they’re fellow West Pointers, as a matter of fact) and they make their products in the USA. They have an incredible assortment of fabrics and I really like that you can customize everything so that you get exactly what you want for your child’s room.
The windows in Caroline’s nursery are extremely tall so Carousel Designs worked with me to make custom-length drapes (if you’re in the same boat just shoot them a note and they’ll work with you too). Their website has a nursery designer tool that allows you to see how your customized items will look before you order them. I seriously spent hours playing around with the tool and all the different fabric options. The drapes are hidden tab 42-inch wide with vertical trim and blackout liner with Pink Primrose as the main fabric and Solid Orchid as the trim. I used the same fabrics for the reversible rail cover for the crib (Jack was a big rail biter so I assume Caroline will be the same eventually). I also chose a 20-inch single pleat crib skirt with 4 inch trim in Solid Orchid. I love that Carousel Designs allows you to personalize all sorts of items, so I had Caroline’s name printed on the sheet (fabric is Banana Yellow Weathered Stripe), the changing pad (same fabric as sheet) and a throw pillow (fabric is Watercolor Floral).
This room turned out exactly how I envisioned it so many months ago when I first found out we were having a girl. I hope Caroline likes it too once she gets a little older. If you have any questions about items in the nursery please let me know! I tried to link to most everything below, including many of my DIYs/furniture rehab projects that ended up in the room.
