Avalon Elle's Nursery

I am so excited to (finally!) share some images from Avalon's nursery!  I feel like it's been done forever, since well before she was born, but I really wanted to wait until she was here to share.  My friend Brooke took these pictures, I have some more close-ups of the details to share & plan to very soon, in the meantime, here is the overall look of Avalon's new little home. :)

The room was pretty much inspired by my idea to do a pallet wall, which was something we decided on early in my pregnancy, before we even found out that we were having a girl.  I love the whole feel of pallets, my style tends to be rustic & minimal, so I feel like it just goes perfectly with everything I am drawn to.  Once we knew Avalon was a girl, I knew I had to add some girly touches to keep it from being too masculine.  We decided on mint & gold as the main colors, with pops of pink since we were using the pink glider from Waverly's nursery.


My mom found this print from Etsy to incorporate all the colors that I planned to use, we ended up using that for both the changing pad & small blanket on the gilder, than we carried around a sample of it for a couple months while keeping our eyes out for things to match!  I am so obsessed with the color mint, for pretty much everything, but also think it's a total pain.  Finding the exact shade is seriously a challenge & we went through lots of pictures, blankets & baskets that just were not even close to what we were looking for.  Thankfully though, it all worked out, I love the way that colors came together & look in the room!

The tassel garland is from Etsy & poms from Hobby Lobby, along with most of the other wall decor.  For the wall above the changing table, we just used our favorite prints from Etsy in the colors we were going with & then put them in white frames from Micheal's.  The crib skirt was actually handmade by my mother-in-law, just using gold tulle.  We couldn't find a small table for next to the glider that I liked so I ended up finding a broken one at TJMaxx, my husband cut some wood on top to make it match the room!

I got the same rug that we have in Waverly's big girl room, just a much bigger version, which honestly was by accident, but I ended up loving how it covered the entire room!  It's usually the first thing people comment on when they walk in, it just creates the most relaxing, peaceful environment which is exactly what a nursery should do.  The stool that matches the rug is from Target this past winter, my husband thought I was on complete white fur overload (& still laughs that it's going to end up every other color but white in no time).  So far, so good. :)

I tried to link everything I didn't mention at the bottom of the post, I hope you will find something useful as I know I got lots of inspiration from other rooms myself.  Decorating the room was so much fun, I know it will be a space that Avalon can grow in & I hope she loves it just as much as we do!
