leila's nursery

i finally finished the nursery this weekend and am in love with it. here is a little tour of leila's room.

when you walk in the door, this is what is directly in front of you. right now there is fabric in the picture frames, but we'll fill them with photos once leila arrives.

to the right of the closet door is the changing station and crib. the name letters are huge but perfect above the crib. i wish the left wall could've turned out a little better, but it was hard to find vases at the right scale and the most important thing was having the video monitor camera aimed at the crib so we can check in on her when we're downstairs.

the opening on the left is the doorway into the nursery. the glider is nice and close since we'll need easy access during late night feedings and cry sessions! and yes abby- sock monkey made another appearance on the blog! ;-)

here's a close up of the wall decal above the dresser. auntie laura bought this for leila and it's adorable!

the girlie safari theme turned out pretty darn good if you ask me. this bedding was our inspiration for the whole room. jake even picked it out!

the only things left to do now are install the car seats and finish making the extra burp cloths. i am really hoping to have a post with a couple of the craft projects i've done before i go into labor. the burp cloths are the latest attempt at creativity. since i'm still 3 weeks from my due date i'm sure i'll have time to post something. tomorrow will be a better indication of that. i have my first internal so i will report back with the progress then. cheerio for now!


  1. Leila's room looks AWESOME!!! I love the wall colors and the decals. What a lucky little girl. :-)

  2. Love love the bedding, I'm expecting a baby boy in December and we just got our bedding delivered two weeks ago, the boy version of yours. Like I said I LOVE the bedding!!!!! It is the inspiration for our nursery too! We actually just finished painting the room like an hour ago.
    Leila's nursery just so precious, she is such a lucky baby!!!!
