house tour: esme's nursery

welcome to esme's nursery!

when you first walk into the room you see a picture by kyler.
it is a family portrait he had drawn when i was pregnant with aspen.
kyler knew i was pregnant with a sibling and drew me pregnant with a baby between my legs.
it was so endearing and sweet, i knew i needed to include it into the nursery.
it makes me smile every time i enter the room!
i wanted to keep the newly painted blue walls but knew i needed to find a way to add some girlie touches.
{ but not too over the top! }
i started with a crib bumper that i loved and worked from there
it is red, white, pink and blue. it was perfect and fit the budget!
cute crib bedding is hard to find and the majority of the designs that i was drawn to were so expensive.
i ended up buying the changing pad cover from the same line and that was it.
i hate walking into a nursery that is all pre-designed.
i used ikea's expedit shelving to house all her clothing and diaper changing supplies,
used the top of the shelf as a changing station
and then added some more ikea shelves up top to display some of our favorite lovies, books and bowls which hold her headbands and bows.
 i added my own crafty touches like this felt bunting that i updated from my last post
we also keep her swing in her room.
this was originally aspen's but he is WAY too heavy to be using it now.
 i also found these dragon fly hooks that i positioned near her closet 
so we can display some of her clothing boutique style!
 
 since i had placed the bunting above her crib, i still wanted to add a personal touch.
i created this from card stock and attached it to a photograph mobile. 
i hung this above our big leather chair that i use for feedings.
esme' loves to sneak glances at her mobile as she eats!
the ottoman was actually a gift from a dear friend.
i couldn't imagine life without it!
 
since we spend a lot of time in her room while i am feeding esme'
i added a large bucket of toys for aspen to play with while i am preoccupied. 
it was originally a beverage bucket from a summer entertaining line hence the bottle cap opener.
he loves to grab a book and climb into the big chair with esme' and i so he can hear a story.
hope you enjoyed the tour!
