Peach & Aqua Nursery + Giveaway

Days away from my daughter's first birthday and I just put the finishing touches on her nursery (thanks to Starlit Nest Gifts - more on her amazing products plus a {giveaway} in a moment!!). Yes, as much as I hate to admit it, life for the second child is inevitably a bit different than it was for the first - at least all that preparation time! Her nursery is, however, now an absolutely adorable room that she can grow into for years to come.

When initially brainstorming the concept for a girl nursery, I knew immediately I didn't want pink, didn't want characters, and didn't want something so babyish that she'd outgrow it in a year or two. I've always had an affinity for aquas and at some point decided on pairing it with peach and LOVE the end result!

Wanting to keep it soft and sweet, I used whites and greys as the base for the room. My texture/fabric inspirations came from this great floral fabric used in the baby quilt and a pillow, a grey flokati rug from Crate & Barrel (which I momentarily considered making from this tutorial) and these coordinating aqua damask and peach polka dot ruffle curtains and bedskirt (custom made by my talented mother and inspired by this nursery). 

We carried a subtle bird-theme throughout the room, purposely not being too "matchy-matchy". I purchased a collection of four birdhouses, spray painted them white, then hung them from the ceiling with peach ribbon in a corner of the room. I decoupaged an H with some fabulously whimsical bird paper I found at Hobby Lobby and embellished it with a fabric flower. I also added these fabric flower embellishments to a pillow for the rocking chair (which my mom, again amazingly talented, recovered in a soft grey canvas with aqua cording!). 
My husband helped me create a custom piece of art for the room with lyrics from one of our favorite lullabies..."I love you, a bushel and a peck". The basket of crocheted birds was a gift from my sister-in-law (thankful for so many talented people in my life!) and the adorable aqua and peach plaid "Cousins" frame came from my older sister.

Now for the grand finale and details on today's {giveaway}!! An adorable custom fabric pennant banner by Starlit Nest Gifts swooped across her closet with "Havyn" written on one side or easily reversed and plain on the other side. I'm so in love with this banner. It really adds the finishing touch to the room and makes it truly Havyn's! 

Alison, of Starlit Nest Gifts, was fabulous to work with and sent a very professionally made finished product. She was thoughtful and responsive throughout the ordering process and I couldn't be happier with the end result.
