Vintage Victorian Nursery
Late night feedings can feel like purgatory! You stumble in the dark, half conscience, to find the crying baby, you change and feed the baby and pray that they go back to sleep, and you cry a little in between because you are so sleep deprived. Yes, I remember those days well. What helped make those nights seem bearable was a clean, well organized, and peaceful nursery, a place I actually enjoyed going to.
When the Jarrell family approached us about decorating their nursery for their soon to arrive fourth child, I was so excited. As a mother of two I know how much time baby and mamma spend in the nursery. It was almost like taking a walk down memory lane as I planned and dreamed about what the room could be.
Melissa Jarrell has a very classy and sophisticated style with a touch of vintage Victorian. She had a crib already picked out from Restoration Hardware which became our inspiration. Peaches and creams were scattered everywhere including a dramatic silk window treatment, my favorite thing in the room, which tied everything together. The floor was grounded with a huge 10′ braided cream rug from Joss and Main. The walls displayed beautiful shadow boxes made from old frames, which displayed trinkets and soft touches of peach accents. The rocker, our splurge item for obvious reasons, was surprisingly from Baby’s R Us. The soft linen fabric was perfect and exactly what I was looking for as an accent fabric. We were completely wowed at the quality and style of this glider and highly recommend it to anyone in the market for nursery furniture.
It was such an honor to decorate this nursery for this sweet family. I hope the Jarrell’s enjoy their new space and find it calming on those late nights and early mornings.
