Last week, I shared the befores and a bit of the design process for Lincoln’s beachy nursery. This week, I’m so excited to show you the finished space! What makes this reveal even sweeter is that the nursery’s occupant, Lincoln, was born five weeks ago and I got to snap some pictures of him when he was just ten days old with his mama in the room.
He’s so tiny I could just DIE.
Ahhh. The perfect room to cuddle sweet little #babelincoln, change his impossibly tiny diapers, and store the insane amount of stuff that one little human needs. The rug was such a great find by Caroline. Things that were perfect about it: the price, the colors, the texture, the size. Things that weren’t perfect about it: nothing.
I know. I know. It’s a lot of cute things to take in at once. Take your time with it. The mobile. The octopus pillow. The side table. The pictures of baby Caroline and baby Ethan on the circular shelf. The curtains! So glad we went with the white curtains! As I mentioned, the room doesn’t get a ton of natural light, so these really brighten and soften the space.
Here’s another one just in case you didn’t fully absorb the cuteness up above. I mean. Could that mobile be any cuter? Also: wuddup super cute octopus pillow. You are also very cute. Times I used the word cute in this paragraph: five. Totally warranted.
Caroline made the wall hanging and I have to commend her- it looks AWESOME. The thick, rope-y cotton piping totally reads “beachy” to me without being too literal, and the copper accents coordinate with the copper side table. Plus, it’s just…cool. I want one for my room. Oh! bonus: if something insane happens and Austin, Texas gets an earthquake, it won’t hurt ze baby if it falls off the wall. We did want to be conscious of what we hung above the crib, which is what inspired something woven in the first place. Win/win!
Oh nothing, just a sweet, tiny gallery wall we squeezed into the glider corner. The pops of orange and yellow are great compliments to the wall color and other blue accents throughout the room. The petite glider is just the right size for the room, and it’s accented with a comfy throw for the parents during late night glider parties.
This side table was the perfect scale for the petite glider in this petite room. Plus, it’s copper, the shape is really cool, and it’s supes affordable from Target. (You may remember I used the same table on my patio.)
Love this precious handmade art that was given to Caroline and Ethan for their wedding and then found the perfect new home in the nursery. Topped with a sand dollar Caroline found at her grandmother’s beach house. ::dies:: Plus: dat curtain fringe detail.
The Pleasure Pier photo looks so great over their Ikea dresser-turned-changing table. This dresser used to be red! Ethan repainted it and spray painted the knobs in a brass finish and now it’s so perfect in this room. A sweet spot for Lincoln to pee on Mom and Dad. 🙂
We didn’t have room for a bookshelf, but were able to integrate some book storage with these picture ledges from Ikea. It doubles as a way to bring some color and fun to an otherwise unusable corner.
Oh ya know, just a mother casually holding her ten day old infant in his super cute, nautical but *naut* too literal nursery and looking gorgeous while doing so despite sleeping what most would call the minimum amount necessary to function. I am so in awe of my friends and so proud of them!!
GUYS. Guys. guys. GUYS!! LOOK AT HIM! Look at his little mouth/chin situation. Just look at it. Keep looking at it. Are your eyes leaking yet? Cool, me neither. Truly, though. He’s the best. If it’s not apparent yet, getting to work on making his room even half as cute as he is was so so fun and rewarding. If you have questions on sources, many of them were covered in this post, or feel free to leave a question in the comments! Or, it’d be helpful if you’d leave some synonyms for “cute” since I get the idea that I may need to have some different options available if I’m going to keep hanging out with cute, cute, cute Lincoln.
