Williams turned 6 months old yesterday, so I figured it was prime time to finally post a few nursery details. His room is easily my favorite room in the house; first, because I dreamed so long of what joy would fill those four walls, and secondly, because it's so calm and cozy. And now, of course, because that sweet baby boy sleeps in there.
If you didn't know, we didn't find out Williams' gender before he was born. So decorating a nursery posed a bit of a challenge, since I couldn't go the typical pink or blue route. That's one of the questions we got the most when talking about our choice to wait--"But how will you decorate the nursery??"
My answer was always this: "Honestly, I would've decorated his room the exact same way if we had known girl or boy." I pictured a neutral, classic room. Lots of white, cream, gold, with pastel colored accents. I wanted to use pink or blue with either sex, along with pale green and yellow, also. Classic pieces that could be used for babies in the future. A beautiful iron bed that I had my eyes on for years. And lots of scripture here and there. So it was easy, honestly. I loved every second of decorating his room! It came together effortlessly and quickly.
His hospital door sign from Hi Y'all! Art now hangs on the door to his room. It's so special to us and makes me smile every time I walk into his room.
I knew I wanted to do a gallery wall above his changing table--something fun and beautiful for us to look at during the many diaper changes to come. Each piece has a sweet meaning to us; from the books given to Williams by aunts and cousins, the antique silver that was Andrew's as a child, and the Psalm canvas given to us by his great-grandmother, everything is sentimental and brings a smile to my face.
I took this photo when Williams was teeny tiny. I feel like that was a lifetime ago! Now he kicks everything off of the end of the changing table!
The "And Baby Makes Three" piece was the cake topper at my baby shower. Now it sits on the table next to his crib.
My parents gifted us with our glider last year for Christmas and I'm so glad we chose that one. It's super comfortable and so versatile. I can see us using it for years to come!
The crib was my big splurge for the room. I had my heart set on this one for a long time and I love it even more in person! I can't wait for all of the Walker babies to sleep in this bed. It's from Bratt Decor and it's absolutely gorgeous!
We have a deep love for all things Hi Y'all! in this house, and his nursery was no exception. I asked Catherine Ann to make him something gender neutral for the nursery, and to include our Bible verse for Williams. The verse has always been my absolute favorite, but it's even more meaningful to me as I say these promises over my sweet little one.
I love this canvas more than words can say!
We kept a twin bed (of Andrew's from when he was a child) in the room also, in preparation for many sleepless nights. It's one of the most comfortable beds in the house and I love the simple, white bedding with his monogram on the pillows.
His bookshelf is another one of my favorite pieces--my mom found it at Dirt Cheap for a steal and I think it's perfect in the corner. We love books and love reading to Williams, so it's full of all the good reads our friends and family have given him!
I still have to pinch myself that I have a sweet baby boy to enjoy this space with. He is such a joy to us and these four walls hold a lot of love.
