Ava's Purple Nursery

Hi lovelies! Sorry this post is way overdue! Being that we moved right after Ava was born I had to wait to put together her nursery but it is FINALLY finished!!! I'm still bummed I didn't get to have this "nesting" experience while I was pregnant but am happy with the final outcome. Here are a few pictures I wanted to share and hope you ladies like it as well! 
I went with a really soft lavender and gray color combination mixed with some silver accents.  
The crib is from Pottery Barn kids and converts into a toddler bed and eventually a big girl bed, so hopefully it will last us for years to come! The fitted sheet and crib skirt are also from Pottery Barn Kids.The bumper isn't as pretty as I wanted but its a "breathable" one and has been great so far!

I love these prints I purchased from Etsy!
Our changing table is from IKEA and I just swapped out the knobs for some distressed mercury knobs from Anthropologie. The silver mirror is also from IKEA.

Im so happy with this bookshelf I ordered from Target! We filled it with a framed quote, map and books that hold special meaning to us. On top I filled some baskets with her diapers and baby products.
 *Note this room was a guest room and the t.v. was already mounted so Ava scored with getting to have a t.v. in her room. It was not installed for her :)

  9. Her nursery came out so great! Love it! ;) I bought Sophia's bumper from Serena & Lily, only to take it off per our doctor's request, so I'll have to look into the breathable bumper now that we are transitioning to the crib! xo

    1. thanks girl! I was so surprised how many stores still sell the bumpers after i kept reading about the increase in SIDS etc it made me so paranoid. This one isn't the cutest but its been great. The first week we put Ava in the crib she would wake up crying bc he little arms and legs would be stuck between the slats. This one was around $20 from Babies R US and has been great. Hope the transition to the crib is going well!!! xo

  18. I absolutely love it. You picked the perfect pieces that will allow you to transition her into a big girl room one day. I adore the bookcase, my daughter needs one and will be definitely looking into this one. I also used a few pieces from Ikea for my girls nursery and let me tell you that I am glad I did because my daughters were a little curious opening drawers and they ended up breaking one. I didn't hurt at all because they were super affordable pieces and just waited until they got older to splurge on their bedroom furniture. Love it!!!!

  35. hahaha i wouldn't judge you if Ava had a tv in her room. The pottery barn crib is so fancy, but I love that you picked a crib that has multiple functions.

    I really like the mama and baby giraffe too. Very sweet.

  50. I'm also interested in the names of the paint colors you ended up using in Ava's nursery! Also did you install the chair rail yourself or hire a contractor? I'd love to do something similar in our baby Ava's nursery as well! Thanks!

  52. Hi - Adorable nursery! I am in the process of decorating our nursery for our baby coming in January and had a question for you on the color of the crib from pottery barn. We ordered their Kendall crib in simply white, but not that it is in the room it actually looks more of a cream/off-white vs. a true white. And the trim and decor in the room is actually white. Did you notice this with your crib and if so, did it bother you?
