A few weeks ago, I stumbled across the gorgeous nursery Rachelle created for her baby daughter Kenzie on Rachelle's fantastic blog KenziePoo. I absolutely love this nursery. It epitomises my favourite design rule- decorate your nursery for the child your baby will become, and your child will grow with the nursery (for more on this subject, see the article I wrote for Connect2Mums). I adore the Lulu ghost chair and the fab Eames rocker. I also love the colour scheme- it is so feminine but not PINK! I asked Rachelle to tell us about the nursery and how it came about and here is what she had to say.
"My name is Rachelle and I reside in the US (Idaho) and I love all things baby. After having my little girl Kenzie I was so inspired to start a blog called Kenziepoo. The blog is all about baby from clothes to Nursery, featuring great finds, fab baby sites, giveaways etc...I also have a fun Etsy shop that I do for fun on the side.
Inspiration: After searching through magazine after magazine I couldn’t decide on what I wanted to do for the nursery until…One day I was registering for my baby shower at Target, and they gave me a booklet of things you could register for. While flipping through that book I found a picture of a room that I absolutely fell in love with! Yellows and whites with lovely wall decals. And that was it!
Favorite Element: I would have to say my favorite items in Kenzie's room are the ABC print with the beautiful frame I found at an antique store, and the beautiful bedding that my good friend made (she is an amazing seamstress).
Biggest Challenge: My biggest challenge was putting the light up….We ended up having to call a friend and have her rewire it!!
What Friends Say: What a blessed baby!
Proudest DIY: I am definitely not an artist, so I was pretty proud of myself when I made the silhouette of Kenzie on her wall.
Biggest Indulgence: Probably my biggest splurge in the room was the crib and the amazing Eames rocker.
Best advice: My best advice is to go homemade.
Dream source: I would love to eventually buy Kenzie a Madeline Weinrib Atelier rug."
