Nursery Planning: Work in Progress

Hatch | Sacramento Street

Can you believe it’s already been a month since I last showed you the nursery inspiration for baby Flemming’s room? Time is flying! I can’t quite believe that he’ll be here in less than seven weeks (hopefully he’s on time!). Since the inspiration post a lot has happened in the nursery – I’ve been busy having it painted, assembling furniture, figuring out a floor plan and much more. I wanted to share a little timeline and some sneak peeks at how it’s been coming along.

16 weeks: It was time to select a paint color. The room originally had all white walls like the rest of the house but I decided that I wanted a little color on the walls. We ended up going with Farrow & Ball Cornforth White.

18 weeks: Time to start picking out furniture, bedding, lighting, and so much more. I popped into the Serena & Lily Design Shop just a few blocks away from our house to get inspiration and pick out key pieces for the room.

20 weeks: Let the painting begin! Unfortunately I couldn’t help with this but Eric (dad of the year) worked tirelessly on making the room look perfect. He didn’t even complain when I asked for a second coat.

24 weeks: Receiving packages in the mail for the baby was like Christmas Day! I was overjoyed when each piece showed up because it meant that I could begin placing everything where I had envisioned them.

27 weeks: Assembly time! Both Eric and I were quite excited to spend our evenings putting together the Hudson Crib, place the Round Belly Baskets for toys, and the Mimi Floor Lamp.

28 weeks: Since we have hardwood floors, finding the perfect rug was important. I knew that I wanted to add a pop of color and that it had to be incredibly soft for our days spent playing in his room. This vintage Turkish rug stole my heart when I found it.

30 weeks: The nursery wouldn’t be complete without a mirror and artwork on the walls! This Serena & Lily White Mosaic Mirror has been on my wish list for quite awhile. Luckily, we had the perfect spot for it in baby Flemming’s room. I can’t wait for him to start laughing at himself in it!

Next up, the big reveal! You’ll just have to wait a little bit longer for that but I promise it’s worth the wait. Stay tuned!
