Evy’s Nursery

  • A Baby Pink Polka Dot Nursery

Well, I never thought that I would be the girl who blogged her child’s nursery AFTER her daughter’s 2nd birthday… but that is totally who I have become… and it’s ok. I think I’m lucky to have just FINISHED her nursery after what the last two years have brought us. When Evy was just 4 months old, we started our Hip Dysplasia journey with her left hip, and we entered our first round of being in “survival mode”. Our 8 hour sleeper turned into a little girl who didn’t know how to sleep in a hip brace and cried every hour.

We gradually overcame that season, and then about the time we felt like we were getting back into the normal swing of things I found out that I was pregnant with James. Then we lost him at 31 weeks, and three months later I was pregnant again. Whew.

So really, I should just be proud that this post even exists and that Evy’s nursery was completed in the midst of all of those ups and downs!

I LOVE everything home decor, but our season of life has really kept me from being able to share much about our new home and what we have done with the place!! Evy’s room has been a work in progress for a while. I started with a neutral/wooden/baby pink theme and then found pieces one by one to make her room feel complete. I love that her mirror, her chandelier, her lamp and her dresser are all a similar wood grain and the crib is different! So often I feel like people think all of their finishes need to be EXACTLY the same, and it can really make a room feel redundant without any transitions!

These polka dots are from Urban Walls and let’s be honest, they are just stickers!! So easy! The curtains and chandelier were a splurge from Restoration Hardware. The mirror is from Pottery Barn (and the Crib, but it was a gift from Grammie and Paw!). The ladder shelf was bought years ago from Joss and Main, and the lamb rocker was a gift from Aunt Susan and is from Pottery Barn Kids! The Rocker is from Wayfair and the ottoman is super old from Homegoods!! The dresser is Pottery Barn Kids and the faux olive tree is from Amazon of all places! The book shelves are from IKEA and the picture frames are from West Elm! Whew! See why it took me a while to gather this stuff!!! Well, despite the delay of it all coming together, I love the way it turned out. It’s peaceful and bright, and Evy calls it “Evy’s House”!!!

Enjoy a little peek into Evy’s space! Oh and PS. That floral watercolor painting is something that I created for Evy’s room! It stressed me out and so I don’t think I’ll be doing that for baby boy’s nursery!! ha! However, the other “Everly James Alsop” watercolor that looks professionally done? That was done by Grammie, Michael’s mom!!!! She also made one for Baby James and we cherish these sweet gifts!

xoxo, Katelyn
