Drumroll please…We’re concluding Bringing Home Baby week with Liza’s NURSERY REVEAL!
After two boys, designing a nursery for my first baby girl was a dream come true! My sons’ nursery was beautiful in a neutral palette of white, ivories, and beige, but I was excited to use lots of color and feminine flourishes this time! The first thing we chose for this room’s décor was the oriental-style rug, which inspired our main tones of aqua and peach. We also incorporated plenty of crisp white and many monograms, of course. They say “a picture tells a thousand words,” so VOILA, Y’ALL!™ Here it is:
Lolli taught me to appreciate fine linens from a young age, and we certainly plan to pass that on to little Liza, too! From her crib sheet by Atelier Choux to scalloped Matouk towels in the nursery bath, she has plenty of pretty linens to learn to love as she grows!
Our decorator had the upholstery of the crib bumpers made to match the white quilted bedding on Liza’s toddler bed, and she also designed a boudoir pillow with bespoke monogram embroidery for added sweetness. We originally bought this toddler bed for our younger son who quickly graduated to a twin bed, so we decided to keep this mini-sized sleeper in the nursery for when Liza outgrows her crib (and for those nights when I need to lie down nearby baby).
I am so thankful for the beautiful, heirloom day gowns friends gifted little Liza at her baby shower for keepsake newborn photos and those occasional public outings when it’s time to dress her up. We decided to put them on special display in the nursery closet with their own hanging racks attached to the inside of the closet doors. I organized the rest of her wardrobe with closet dividers by size, which makes it easy to know where things go! The storage bin sets I bought for Liza’s closet and drawers came with enough bins to use a few in the nursery bathroom, within cabinet shelves and at the diaper changing station:
The Little Details
Precious little babies should be surrounded by precious little details! It’s the decorative accessories for a room that are often the most fun to curate. Our decorator selected Fabergé egg prints out of a book she owned to frame in gold for one wall of the nursery. Of course, no childhood is complete without a piggy bank, and Lolli gave Liza a collectible porcelain baby shoe by Herend for the night stand. I found an Etsy shop that makes cute, custom childrens’ products and ordered a sweet step stool and matching jewelry box from them for Liza.
We also commissioned several paintings by King’s Daughters, a company founded by some longtime friends of Lolli and mine who are also a mother-daughter duo! Each piece of their art has an inspirational meaning behind the theme, and they used colors that tied the room together beautifully:

Atop the chest of drawers where we keep folded blankets, onesies, socks and more, sits Liza’s library of timeless storybooks as well as some more modern classics. We especially love the Hathaway House fairytales collection, edited and published by a dear family friend, with beautifully reinvented illustrations. We just read The Tortoise and the Hare with our boys (again) last night. It’s currently their favorite bedtime story!
