gender neutral nursery nook

on january 1st, we welcomed our baby girl evelyn emma into the world.  as you can see, she is absolutely perfect.  and although she is all i really want to talk about, this post is about her nursery.  ironically, i started writing this post on december 31st, but was interrupted by my water breaking.  now i get to finish while cuddling with her in my arms-way better.

due to the size and layout of our home, we decided to keep evelyn's nursery in our room.  here is what our bedroom looked like before the arrival of our little.

and here is how that little nook was actually used:

to make room for the crib, we moved the oversized chair out of the nook.  we also rearranged the bed so we can have a nice view of evie as she slumbers.  many of the pieces used in the nursery we already had, such as our bookshelf, reading chair, and dresser.  but enough talking, here is little miss evelyn's nursery nook:

now that we know she is a girl, we are excited to add some more personal touches {and fill those picture frames!}. i'll leave you with one more picture of the precious little face i get to stare at all. day. long.

we are so in love with you evie girl!

    1. I purchased the bookcase from Walmart. It only came in black and I painted it white :)

  2. What paint color is your bedroom? Love it!

  3. First of all, congratulations on your beautiful baby! I just have to say that this room is incredibly gorgeous! It’s understated, elegant, earthy and playful all at the same time. You did an amazing job. Love it!
