Designed from Top to Bottom, Keira's Nursery Reveal

Sunday, April 7, 2019

To say I had fun creating Keira's nursery is an understatement.  I'm not sure if it was because I got to decorate for a girl, or if it was because I was just really ready for a change from the nursery of the boys (aka brown everything!) or if it was because I've grown to better understand myself and trust the visions I set forth to create even if it isn't picture perfect.  Keira's nursery was a struggle at first because I wanted to go in so many different directions but one thing was constant, I wanted it lighter and brighter.  That meant white.  I wanted to change out the brown dresser and brown crib and brown rocker.  Brown, brown, brown! Ugh.  

When I first came across the crib from the Soho collection for Forever Eclectic by Child Craft I knew I had the key pieces, the furniture.  I love that they are white but have a natural wood foot.  Something that is minimal but, oh so different than every other set out there.  Plus, they are REAL wood.  That means a lot to me for durability and longevity. They have a definite modern/mid century style which I really was drawn too and the clean metal hardware is sleek.  The dresser has super large draws all on metal tracks and the chest is the perfect size for the otherwise awkward nook that I never was able to really use before.  The best part was that the dresser and chest came fully assembled!! The only thing I needed to do was unscrew all the hardware and re-screw them back on facing outward.
