Claire's Nursery

When we found out we were having a girl I was at a loss for what I wanted to do with her nursery,since about 90% of baby girls bedding sets are pink and I hate pink or at least baby pink. I don't understand why baby girl bedding sets have to be pink? I can do a little pink or even a dark pink but why does it have to look like pink threw up all over a baby girls nursery?!?! 

So I searched all over the internet to find just the right color combination. My first thought was my mom or sister could make it, but that is time consuming and if I could find one to order that would be easier on everyone. Finally after several weeks of searching I found the perfect set on Amazon (my favorite website of course). Once the bedding set was selected I started planning all the details. Unfortunately I had just got her nursery cleaned and the furniture set up when my water broke and I went into preterm labor, leaving my husband to finish the nursery for me which included picking the paint color. I have to say I think he did a great job and I love it!

The wall color is called Moonshade and we went with cherry furniture to match her cherry wood blinds. 

Her bedding is Migi Sweet Sunshine
In the beginning we did a lot of feeding here in the middle of the night. Now we love to rock and read in this cozy corner.

This is a custom canvas piece my friend made for Claire. I love it and it looks perfect in my glider corner.
Dresser and changing area. We selected a long dresser and added the changing pad. It looks great and we won't have to buy her another dresser when she doesn't need a changing table anymore.
Wooden Rocking Giraffe the sits underneath the other window. 

Her toy basket. Sits between the door to her room and her closet door. 
Claire's hair bows/flowers and head band hanger.  We hung this on her closet door. My sister made it for her.

Thank you! I wish the light would have been better when I took these photos. The paint really isn't that dark and it has a purple hue to it. She also has a big grey rug in the middle of the room. I thought the color combination would be and easy transition when the time comes for a big girl room. The letter my sister custom painted to match her bedding and her hair bow and head band hanger. She also makes a lot of her ow and flowers.

I couldn't do a 1 bedroom the older she gets the more stuff she has. I feel like its everywhere and we have a big The giraffe is amazing everytime since she came home we lay her down we put the womb sound on and she goes right to sleep. It's become a sleep cue for her so start from the beginning and it will help.

My sister is talented and I'm so appreciative of that. Wait to you see Claire's Halloween costume...
