Spring 2018 ORC Week Six THE BIG REVEAL!
May 10, 2018
We made it! By "we" I mean, myself, other bloggers, featured participants and the tiny human who refuses to leave my body...On the bright side, I have a perfect space to welcome this sweet boy. I also have a ton of exciting reveals to read and drool over while I am in the hospital.
Let's start this party and look at some gorgeous things! We will start with the hub of the room; glider and crib. I can honestly say every time I walk past the door and see this view, I smile.
The crib featuring the a few pieces of the adorable Lily Pulitzer for Pottery Barn looks wonderful; and I love the little gold tassels. I was also able to make a fun pillow using a Duralee sample I had in my linen pile. I asked myself when is too much zebra, too much; but the pop of chartreuse green matches the changing area perfectly and ties the colors in across the room.
I shopped my home to find this simple gold and white tray top table which fit perfectly beside the new grey linen glider...
The gallery wall is so much fun. All the colors from the main Cannes print are echoed throughout the room, and I hope they can inspire my little boy to adventure into the big world. I also have a small desk area for the big sisters to spend time with me and baby brother in the room during the day...My imagination sees them coloring him sweet pictures and love notes but the reality will probably be much different.
The final main area of the room are his dual bookcases, and changing area. This set up makes the thought of dirty diapers much more bearable.
Each bookcase features the wild Kate Spade leokat pattern which I have loved from the day I laid eyes on it. This is also where the little girls DIY hippo head has come to rest. All the swaddles are at my finger tips and I cannot wait to see him wrapped up like a baby burrito in these adorable patterns.
I added a bit of style to diaper changing by resting Babyganics hand sanitizer and diaper cream in a brass bamboo tray which rests underneath a bright red vintage bamboo lamp. The gilded lining of the black shade lets out the perfect glow, which will hopefully make night times golden. I have nestled his wipes inside a vintage cigar box, and I could not be crazier for this detail. The Greek key changing pad echoes the ribbon detail I added to the face of this table skirt. After all, this baby is a Greek!
The tops of these bookcases feature julep cup palms, and various other items which all lend to the globe trotter vibe. On one bookcase, I have a vintage style print of gorgeous butterflies. The colors in this art are so vibrant and match the small Threshold globe beautifully. On the other bookcase, I have a coordinating black frame which will hold a black and white photo of my two little ladies meeting brother (once he finally arrives) and a framed Native American beaded purse. My college major was Anthropology and I scooped this beautiful purse up knowing exactly what it was and it's antiquity and I love seeing it framed. The IKEA bookcases also feature new pulls which remind me of golden antelope horns!
The toy and books all add an adorable touch of baby whimsy! I also have another vintage cigar box to corral pack and tethers.
The sweet hippo looks so perfect he deserves his own photo!
Our seersucker diaper bag is ready and waiting for baby Crawford James Karvelas to arrive...
That is the room in all its glory! I hope you have enjoyed looking at everything and do not forget to look at all the other fabulous spaces created during this exciting process. Thank you Linda with Calling it Home and House Beautiful for creating the One Room Challenge!
