Nursery tour!

I have been OBSESSED with this nursery since loooong before I was even pregnant. I've been researching, planning and generally going crazy over it. Well - it's FINALLY done! 

I started with a giraffe theme in mind. That changed to dinosaurs. Which changed to robots/dinosaurs. Which changed to robots. And ended up - with no theme! It's just bright, modern, cozy and fun - with a few dashes of chevron and elephant, but definitely not babyish and no theme. I'm extremely happy with it, especially the handmade items - both by myself and loved ones - and items gifted from friends and family. 

So without further delay... Parker's nursery!

Looks really great girl!! Love all the handmade touches. It's funny, I actually 'know' you from Instagram & had seen your nursery pics on there, and then I went to submit my own project on and saw this there, too! :) Great job!
