Gwynn’s Nursery

Without further ado here is our baby girl’s nursery…   IMG_6100IMG_6102IMG_6104

Meg and Chris made this wooden bar for my baby shower. Upon seeing it I fell completely in love with it and had to have it in Gwynn’s nursery. Chris sized it down a bit to fit perfectly atop her Ikea bookcase as a makeshift clothing rack. Special shout out to Meg for hours and hours of precise yarn wrapping. I love it because it allows me to showcase my favorite pieces of her little wardrobe.


Below in the cubbies I have less beautiful but necessary items such as: diapers, wipes, towels, swaddles, first aid goodies and burp cloths. As I learned with my friend’s 8 month old as she explored Gwynn’s nursery, picture frames and objects with sharp edges need to be well out of reach.


Her teeny tiny shoes!

We purposely left a few walls in her nursery blank so we can later add her newborn pictures to these walls.


Even though I didn’t initially intend to, her nursery took on a floral theme.  My mom commissioned my talented friend Regina to paint her name, Gwynn Emma as a gift for her nursery. Upon receiving this beautiful painting I began to envision her nursery covered in florals. I also consider it a small homage to my dad because no one has ever loved flowers as much as he did.


My amazing husband assembled each and every piece of furniture in her nursery, I’m so thankful for his handiness and hours of hard work.

Gwynn’s first “something borrowed” from a dear friend who’s baby girl has outgrown this family heirloom bassinet. It’s Gwynn’s first home in our bedroom for the beginning few months.
