A New Nursery

Here is a nursery that I finished last week. I painted the walls in this popular lattice pattern, which I blogged about here. It is a really big room, so it took a lot of patience and work, but I think it's going to be such a serene, calm, pretty nursery for two little twin babies due in a few months!

Obviously, there are lots of items that are needed to complete the space, but after I left last week, it really was starting to feel like a nursery.

This is a handmade stencil, painted on top of Benjamin Moore's "Nimbus", which may be my new favorite grey. It's so pretty.

I'll tell you more about that bookshelf tomorrow!

  7. Kristen, this is such a beautiful, serene nursery! The paint color is perfect and the stencil really adds a lot of interest. I'd love to add this to my paint color galleries. You wouldn't have to do a thing, just let me know if you're interested! Also, where did you get the white accent rug? I've been looking everywhere for one like that!
