Now that our official adoption has been finalized, Christmas is over and the house is settling down… we have finally finished the nursery!
If you remember from my prior blog post, I used this picture as my inspiration for feel and palette. I like the soft elegance of the colour combinations, and the easy breezy feel. I tend to get inspired by images that aren’t pictures of rooms. I like the way certain things make me feel, and use that as a jumping point.
The room Lily was moving into was our guest bedroom, which was still builder greige and was an empty palette to say the least. I knew I wanted to add some texture of dimension to that blank box. I decided that I would do a board and batten wainscoting in a crisp white. I thought it would elevate the space, and provide visual interest. I am so glad I did it. I was scared at first because I’ve never done anything like that before. I really like how it turned out! Now I want to add the feature to several other rooms.. especially the mudroom or the main floor powder room.
So here it is. The room really feels so much larger.
There you have it. We now have our baby girl’s room complete! I’m happy with the end results. I think it is a room that can grow with her.
Next up I’ll be redoing Conor’s room.
