Pink and Gold Nursery

Soooo.. yeah.. seems like fitting words for the first post of my THIRD blog. If you were an avid reader of my last two blogs (JOKES) I hope to exceed your expectations on this one. But, really I hope to post more and actually plan posts. Not all posts will be home decor and not all posts will be baby. I promise to find some sort of balance but, to kick us off I thought I'd share one of my favorite rooms in the house. Aspen's nursery.

So the funny thing about Aspens nursery is it actually got set up in two different rooms. Yup, thats right and not only was it in two different rooms, it was in two different houses. Sharing Baby Daddy and I's non-traditional love story is another story for another day but, when we first found out I was pregnant we weren't living together. The plan was for me to sell my house and move in with him so that's where the nursery began. His house didn't have white trim which I pretty much deemed that a necessity for the nursery. So he worked really hard painting the walls Accessible Beige and all the trim in the room white. It really was a labor of love. My house sat on the market for 6 months. It was a weird price point and in a growing neighborhood where new spec homes were popping up everyday. As soon as the nursery was complete at his house I got the crazy idea that we should sell his and move into mine so we didn't have two house payments. The plan was to move in here and keep it on the market and when it sold buy something together. The poor guy didn't even blink an eye when I told him I wanted to move. He just started packing. His house sold without even going on the market so, we were left with only one house payment. YAY. Log story short, "my home" is now "our home" and we are staying here for awhile.

My vision for the nursery was a very soft pink, white and gold color palette. It was already painted the color I wanted. I wanted to enhance the walls a bit but, at this point I was about a month away from my due-date.  I debated forever on a Restoration Hardware crib and finally settled on the Jenny Lind crib that I could actually order through my insurance points at work. If you don't have that luxury it's also a very cute crib at a good price point. Let me say this though, in person it definitely seems like a $200 crib vs. $800 crib.. But, hey Aspen hasn't even slept in it yet so I'm glad I went the cheaper route.

The dresser was another labor of love by my moms friend. She found it at an estate sale and painted it petal pink for Aspen.

I should also note that the nursery was very much inspired 12th and whites Peach and Gray nursery. Courtney is such a talented decorator and as my style has changed over the past year she has really been a huge source of inspiration of the direction I want to move in my home!
