When you live in a small space, each room needs to serve more than one function. My daughter’s bedroom doubles as a homeschool room, and our dining room doubles as a home office. And now the master doubles as a nursery, too.
#Thenewestbabiekins surprised us all by arriving early — welcome, Lochlan Ambrose! — so we didn’t even have a nursery space ready for him yet. Yikes! And after his NICU stay, he moved home to a small bassinet. But this month, things finally stabilized enough around here to create a little haven for him in the corner of the master bedroom.
Since the master bed linen is already white, setting the light and airy palette was easy. I started by layering a large Whitecaps Indigo Rug from Ruggable (it’s washable!) over the existing wall-to-wall carpeting, then paired it with a modern whale-print crib sheet from Peapod and Nate. The whole space is anchored by Babyletto’s 4-in-1 Gelato Convertible Crib in White/Washed Natural. (Bonus: it will convert to a toddler bed later!)
I love how the earthen textures of the Oaxaca-made pillows from Moon Water Co (moved to the master bed when baby is using the crib) counteract the breezy lightness of the other nautical textiles. And of course, no room in my house is complete without books! Favorites from author S.D. Smith and Catechesis Books are close by on my Tolix-inspired nightstand. (The lamp is from Memoky a few years back. Here’s a similar one.) The guitar is in our personal collection, and the Dylan poster is merch from a concert we attended several years ago. The woven rainbow, a promise of hope, was a gift from my friend Spot of Sunshine — she found it on Etsy!
This space is calming, and it has quickly become a favorite spot in our home. It’s clean, bright, and minimal, and the soft golden tones really warm up what might otherwise by a stark look. And best of all — Lochlan is happy here!
