When I was putting together ideas for how I’d want to do Huntley’s first birthday “Cake Smash” photos, I knew I had to do them on the beach; after all, it is her favorite place to be! My sweet photographer friend Alicia, from Alicia P Photography, was optimistic and was willing to work with my crazy ideas and even helped me lug a teepee and a vintage highchair out under the beach pier. Well, the photos came out absolutely perfect and I couldn’t be happier with them!
Originally I had envisioned a modern chic-nursery in teal and yellow, but fell in love with this crib (not at all modern) and decided on a completely different style for this nursery.
When I was pregnant, I would always be on the lookout for things that would work in the nursery. Sometimes, I would just buy things because I loved it, not because it would match – you’ll notice I use tons of prints and patterns. If you knew me, you would know me as a collector of vintage! My mother-in-law is a perfect example of this, she purchased from flea markets/antique stores, etc. some of the most beautiful vintage things including the ceramic shoes, cream hanger hook, and wooden gold floral piece in the corner. Three of the frames and art on the gallery wall are also vintage, two of which I painted in gold glitter.
I knew pink would be perfect for this vintage-glam theme, but my husband didn’t want a bubblegum pink and so we decided on this pretty iced peach.
As some might think this small room seems a bit cluttered and too small for all that’s in it, Huntley just loves taking tours around her room with so much to see and touch!
The inspiration for our baby girl’s nursery all started with this beautiful Bratt Decor crib and vintage dressers!
Nothing to match-y, personalization is key! Many of the things that were used in the room were either gifted or found at thrift stores and on Craigslist. One of my favorite gifts was from a cousin of mine who got a little ceramic shoe personalized with Huntley’s name in gold handwriting – I thought this was such a sweet gift and so perfect in the room!
