Hi there, friends. I’m back from quite the long radio silence here on the blog, and if you ever came across our Patterns, Preggos & Painted Places series from last spring you won’t have to wonder why. The birth of our first baby came in late July, a little girl we named Persephone Snow West. Work slowed down a good deal but never came to a full halt, although activity here on the blog certainly did.
Well, we’re back, baby! I decided to start things off with a little inspiration pulled straight from my own domicile: the nursery. Behold all of it’s imperfect splendor. Note the missing crib sheet and changing pad cover from the above photo (in the wash). Drawer pulls are also absent in that photo, I had a few of these cuties on back order from Anthropologie at the time.
That being said, this little room is a rainbow resort is filled with assorted adorables, most of which were given to us by dear friends. It’s great that when your friends recognize your love of bright colors and patterns, they buy your baby things in bright colors and patterns.
While I didn’t exactly plan out a theme for the room, you might notice rainbows are kind of everywhere. From the super cool set of Pantone baby books, to the bedding, to the set of Alexander Lang’s fairy tales on the small book shelf.
The ceramic toadstool nightlight is one of the most unique gifts Persephone received, and one which we use on a daily (or rather nightly) basis. Other highlights from the room include a limited edition print from the amazing Esther Kim, and an early original drawing of beautiful ballerinas by fine artist Shirley Ruff. Both are priceless treasures that I hope my daughter will grow up to love as much as I do.
Thanks for checking out some of the colorful details in my babe’s new room. It’s an evolving work-in-progress that will no doubt grow alongside her.
