Today I’m thrilled to finally share Jackson’s nursery with all of you. This project was a labor of love and it all fell into place with ease. I envisioned a peaceful oasis for him to enjoy.
Originally, I had planned to keep the guest bed in the room. However, it quickly became apparent that there wasn’t enough room. I swapped that idea for a low woven bench with a cushion and pillows that is kid friendly that we could use as a reading nook. This allowed for more space to bring in the glider, crib, and changing table.
A nursery has all of the must-haves for a babies room – crib, changing table, chest of drawers. But when designing the nursery I thought about how it could evolve with time. That’s why I purposefully chose items that can change over time as he grows up. For example, the changing tray on the campaign dresser can be removed and it becomes a stunning chest of drawers. The baskets filled with receiving blankets can also function for storing toys. If you think ahead, you can buy items that serve several functions.
