a nursery tour. (because she's actually due this week...)

we had such a good time coming up with ideas and working together on projects for the nursery. adam is very task oriented and gets very focused on a project. he wants to zone in, take his time, and present the finished result. and then there is me who LOVES to watch and hover and help and discuss each step at great lengths…awesome, right? 

every project man's dream wife...not.

needless to say, early on in our marriage we had to troubleshoot how to do projects together. luckily after painting a few rooms together in our first little rental we seemed to get the hang of it. two years later, i think we are a pretty good team. not that we don’t have our moments still…

anyway, of all of our together projects, this one brought us the most joy. we got giddy with every little detail. the other night after hanging a few a little things on her wall, adam yelled downstairs and said, “elise, her room rocks!” i smiled. one, because how sweet is it for a father-to-be to get all excited about his baby girl’s room? and two, because i totally agreed. it’s the first room we've actually “done” in our whole house. and yes, we moved in almost a year ago. these days it's our favorite room to just be in too. last night adam randomly asked "do you want to go hang out in the nursery??" ha, can you tell we are ready to meet her? 


we think it rocks. we think she rocks. and we can’t wait to bring her home and introduce her to the little space made especially for her. for real. there is going to be an actual sweet little bambina living in this space. eeeeeks!

this chair was in my grandmom’s house and she was getting rid of it. score! i didn't remember how cute it was until adam brought it home and plopped it in the nursery. could it be more perfect? plus, my awesome and very dear friend steph made this precious sign for her.

i have had this dresser and lamp since my second year of college. but how perfect are they in here? we did buy a new shade that matches a bit better.

we adore this crib and crib set. remember my rant about non matchy-matchy sets? and no crib would be complete without one or two jellycat animals. from what i can tell, there have never ever been better stuffed animals than jellycats. and that lion...eeek!

meet queen buzzy bee. my favorite of her toys so far. 

lil' newborn mocs? yes please!

she has a big old window and window seat too...which is the last project that we'll need to do. but these days, when it's dark about 20 out of 24 hours...we aren't too worried about curtains. we'll figure that out at some point.

ok child, big week! come see your room, if you want!


  1. Elise this is such a lovely nursery. When I was in it I just felt happy and calm. I think babes will love love love it! I can't wait for her to be sleeping in her crib and changed on that table and rocked in that chair!

    1. thanks! happy and calm is how it makes me feel too. :)

  2. Elise and Adam this is wonderful! Now your home is as ready for her as your hearts are. Bravissima!

    1. thank you martha! and yes, our home and hearts are getting antsy to welcome her!

  3. Hey Elise! Congratulations! The nursery looks wonderful. Anthony has told me that he has ran into you a few times. I am so happy for you and your family to be. You two will have similar birthdays!!
