Luca’s Neutral Nursery

Morning loves! We FINALLY finished Luca’s nursery last month and wanted to share some of the pictures with you! I’ll be completely honest I totally lost steam with it half way through. I don’t know if it’s the second child syndrome or the fact that we’ve been so busy and exhausted with the two of them but it’s finished!! I wanted some something simple, clean and calming (because with a newborn and “three”anger we’re definitely going to need all the calming we can get! ;). So here we go with some snapshots from Luca’s neutral nursery…

I wen’t with soft grays, stripes and animal accents. The paint is actually much more gray in person than it is showing up in these pictures. We used Benjamin Moore paint in Nimbus for his nursery. My other favorite that is a touch darker than Nimbus is Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter.

Baskets and Picture are from Restoration Hardware Kids
Now you can imagine these books and animals didn’t last in these baskets for long. A certain someone is testing out all of these goodies until Luca is old enough to tell her other wise 😉

This rocking chair is the same one we used for Ava and it from Pottery Barn. The crochet pouf is from Restoration Hardware kids.

This distressed side table is from a local boutique in Newport Coast called Jux.ta.poisition 

Clock from Pottery Barn and I potted this succulent in this large distressed candle holder I bought at Michaels.

I  had big plans to do 8 point star decals on the ceiling but after countless calls it turned out they don’t adhere very well to textured walls. The only other option would be to measure out and hand paint stencils (ya, ain’t nobody got time for that lol) or else wall paper. I couldn’t find the exact color combo I wanted in the wall paper and it was super expensive anyhow so we just bagged it all together. We may do something fun on the walls when we transition it into a big boy room in a couple years.

Mixed matched gray print pillows all from Target
Ava is obsessed with this little rocking bear from Restoration Hardware Kids. As for the crib we really wanted to do something different but there was no use in wasting money on another one when they are only it for such short period of time. We just reused Ava’s crib from Pottery barn. Sheets are Aden + Anais and the crib skirt is from Restoration Hardware Kids. We don’t use bumpers for our cribs for safety reason (even though they look so much cuter with them) but we put on breathable bumpers (from Target) for both Ava and Luca so their little arms and legs don’t get stuck.
I love this gray dresser with the pull handle hardware from Restoration Hardware! This was a piece I bought in mind for when we transition his room into a big boys room! The Metal letters are from Land of Nod and pictures from RH.

One of my favorite pieces from Ava’s nursery (reused in Luca’s) is this mama and baby giraffe set. Purchased on Etsy a few years ago.
Even though I didn’t to all the Pinterest’y 😉 things I had in mind i’m SO happy with it! It’s actually my favorite room in the house. I love sitting on this rocking chair in the evening and nursing him to sleep! I’m holding on to these moments because I know he’ll be running around here in no time!

    Absolute perfection =) That RH dresser is amazing. I love that it can be used for years to come in pretty much any room in the house. In a large dining room that would be a great buffet! Love everything about this room. So very peaceful =)

    His nursery is absolutely GORGEOUS Andee! You did such an amazing job and I love all the RH details 🙂 Is that a real Fiddle Leaf Fig tree? I've been searching for one for forever and they are so hard to find.

    You have amazing style. May I ask if the pouf is the large or small. What a great idea for an ottoman/kids chair.

    It looks great, Andee! It's second child syndrome for sure. Either way, I love how neutral it is. I'm kinda glad the decals didn't work out right now. Save that for big boy Luca 🙂

    I love how you used neutrals and really played them up by adding all of the little touches. You did a good job! Don't feel bad for not doing all of the Pinteres-ty things, it looks beautiful! I especially love the adorable teddy bear rocker!

    Hi Andee! Absolutely beautiful room!
    Can you tell me more about the drum ceiling light? I’d like to do the same in my little girl’s nursery but I’m having difficulty finding a piece that’s robust enough without being overwhelming. Any help would be great. Thanks!

    What sizes are the baskets? Small, large, and hamper? Also, are they the natural color? Just wanted to make sure!!

    Oh! What color stripe is the crib skirt?

    Thank you so much! I adore this room! So simple, yet beautiful!

    Korey 🙂
