Designing my kid’s nurseries has been one of my absolute favorite things to do. A space that you spend so much time in for those first few years deserves all of the special touches. When it came to our third baby, I had a vision, that was never quite executed because she came 5 weeks early. Given three young kids and a pandemic, I finally feel like I’m at a point where I can tackle this project and I can’t wait to see it all come together!
It’s been two years now, but I’m finally designing her space as I had always envisioned. While she will only be in a crib a bit longer, I am designing with that in mind. Her room will easily transition to a “big-kid” room when she is ready for a bed.
Fun fact, all three of my children have shared the same crib. I remember finding this crib on Pinterest when I was pregnant with my first nearly 8 years ago. I had to have it and it has been the perfect statement piece for each room.
While I don’t have many photos of the original nursery, I updated it when Charlotte was two, with intentions of it being a shared space for her and her new brother. We ended up moving into our current home so it was never a shared room, but it worked out to be a perfect gender-neutral style that I carried over into our new house.

And now the plans for Maeve’s new room:
- Feature wall with DIY picture frame molding
- Floral Wallpaper on the ceiling
- Vintage armoire for toy / clothing storage
- Modern style rocker
- Washable area rug with padded mat
- New light fixture
This bedroom is the smallest of our four, so it lends itself perfect for a nursery / toddler room, that is typically just used for sleep time. My son has been in here but as they get bigger and want to spend more time in their rooms, it is time to give him more space. My two older kids have been adamant about sharing a room for years. We are taking this as an opportunity to give them that shared space for as long as they want it. Knowing very well, it might not last that long — but they are only little once.
And finally my mood board for Maeve’s new room – I started over the weekend on the accent wall and I am waiting for some wallpaper samples to come in for the ceiling. Hoping this will be a relatively easy update, but only time will tell. Such is the way when designing with the help of three littles!
