Valentina's Nursery

7:52 AM

I finally got around to taking some photos of V's nursery. Part of the reason I waited so long is because I left things pretty open ended before her birth since we didn't know if we would be having a boy or girl. Once she arrived and we got a better sense of her personality I added some pieces that I thought would work well. 
I suppose you could say my main inspiration for her room were nurseries in Russia when I was growing up. I wanted it to be reminiscent of Russian homes in the late 70's and 80's. What that meant was fairly simple furniture and the addition of color through toys, linens and pictures. With a little ingenuity I was able to get pretty close to that idea by using a lot of black and white, lace and vintage linens. 

Here are the details in case you may be interested:
Dresser, changing table, rocking chair, rug, & curtains - Ikea, foot stool, lamps & pillows - Target, crib - Amazon, yellow linens - Land of Nod, chevron blanket, books, globe & animal heads - thrifted, My Roots Lie Here print - My Roots Etsy shop, moose print - Society6, Russian toys & books - Ruskniga
