Nursery Update

I know it's been a while since I've posted, we moved and I just haven't had any time. Now we're starting to get settled, I have a quick moment for an update on how the nursery is finally starting to come together.

After much much much deliberation we chose the Monte Alto Rocker in white leather. It wasn't quite as curvy as I was hoping for, I actually prefer the shape of the Luca, however the Luca doesn't come in white leather, and I don't love seeing the gliding mechanism at the base, particularly when it's such dark wood. I wish Monte would be more flexible with their customization! So we went with the Alto instead, and with a nice soft bright pillow I think it will be fine, particularly paired with our silver metallic ottoman.

Over the past week or so I've purchased the Land Of Nod Jenny Lind bookcase, some white shelves from West Elm, the Calypso Zig Zag Rug in Jadeite, a white Newport Cottages style dresser, some Blabla dolls and some Ugly dolls. I'm in the process of ordering the mobiles and art, mostly from Etsy, and two prints from Sharon Montrose of a baby monkey and a giraffe.

I'm still on the hunt for a vintage lamp, preferably yellow, a side table or two, organic fitted sheets in plain colors (why are they only sold in sets? So frustrating!), and a laundry hamper. Oh and all the basics, like thermometers, diapers, etc.!

I just heard the crib (the Ray crib by Muu) is arriving Monday which is so exciting, and I'm so glad it's finally coming together! Below is my attempt at a collage... will try to post another update in the next few weeks, if not I'll definitely post photos of the finished product when I'm done!
