My dear friend Alaina put together this uber pure baby girl nursery for us. Isn’t it dreamy?
Also, Paloma at La Dolce Vita asked me to do a post on my dream home today, which has got my jonesin’ for another big project!
I say if you’re having a baby girl and you can use pink, use it with a no-holds-barred approach. An abundance of blush hues accented by soft neutrals create a calming and unapologetically feminine space helping any bitty baby drift swiftly into dreamland. And with little bee McCarthy, we are talking first-born, so this darlin’ is getting all the bells and whistles. The sleek, white crib is by Dwell Studio, the French-inspired changing table is from Restoration Hardware, and nowadays, it seems a room isn’t complete unless you spy a Moroccan pouf nestled in the corner. Plush textiles and oversized lighting anchor the space without being too brash or heavy, and the artwork is simple: floral prints complete with ABC’s and an oversized photograph of a baby lamb – in lieu of the lion Bailey had originally wanted for a boy. As for accents, clothbound Penguin classics with all of our favorite childhood tales like Anne of Green Gables and The Secret Garden are too pretty to pass up, even if it will be a couple years before baby actually comprehends what you’re reading to her. And perhaps my favorite item in the room is the white egg nightlight that lights up to cast a canopy of stars on the walls and ceiling. Magical. Sleep well, tiny one.
