Nurse-cessories

What was once our guest bedroom has now been renovated with a fresh coat of Benjamin Moore's Titanium, some built-in Pax closets, a Schonbek crystal chandelier, new floors and crown moulding; to become our new nursery. I also took the opportunity to replace some mismatching baseboard, because staring at this kind of thing makes me crazy:




























We resisted the temptation to make it super girlie and cutesy, figuring she may be changing rooms in a couple of years, and this would once again become a guest bedroom:
























































To bring the "baby" into the "baby room", we added the requisite items - a crib, a dresser/change table from Captain's Treasures, lamp and comfy chair, and of course the all important nurse-cessories. In our case we added a rug that my wife had in her room when she was a baby:




























An original oil painting from talented Canadian artist - Amanda Hill:




























A lamp from Homesense:




























And here are the afters:

What a beautiful room! Your daughter will love it. It fits beautifully with the rest of your home, from what I've seen. And a Schonbek chandelier? We should all be so lucky to have one in our room!

It looks very comfy and cozy and even elegant. Looks like you are ready to go. Just add baby.

I love Captains Treasures!

I love the finished room! The sentimental rug really makes the space and the whole thing seems to blend well with the rest of your house. I'm sure it will be a well loved room.
