Love on a spring breeze – Baby Lily Grace’s Julienne nursery (Part 3 of 3)

Ok. So we won’t say “TA-DA!” again. Instead, we will leave you with an excerpt from our Q&A session with mom from mom Stacey Cohen.

“This is our first baby.  Her name is Lily Grace!  I have always adored the name Lily for years now and my grandfather who recently passed away’s name was George so we wanted to keep a G in the family in honor of him who I truly adored.”

Love on a spring breeze – Baby Lily Grace’s Julienne nursery (Part 2 of 3)

“TA-DA!” again folks! As is custom, in our Part 2 of the 3-part nursery feature of Baby Lily Grace’s Julienne nursery, here is mom Stacey Cohen talking to us about the nursery and what inspired it and what she means to do with it in the future.

What was your inspiration for the nursery design and décor?
Pink! Just kidding- well, not really.  I wanted this to be a room fit for a little princess. I had gotten some inspiration off of Pinterest, like I’m sure we all have at some point but honestly it all just kind of came together for me. I would go to HomeGoods a lot and find pieces that worked together.  From the beginning I knew I wanted to do a pink, white and gold theme and I just added on a little bit more from there- I found her flowers and decorations above her crib then everything else fell into place!

What drew you to évolur over other nursery brands?
I didn’t want a baby crib, I know that sounds so silly but I wanted her to have a little princess crib and a beautiful crib that she could grow into and évolur had that! The headboard is what sold me instantaneously!

Did the room pose any design challenges?
No, not at all- I love putting colors and designs together and I’m such a girly girl that I knew this would be no issue at all!

Did you and your spouse agree on style, or did you blend styles and how?
Surprisingly, yes. We actually agreed. Usually we have some style differences but we both agreed pink was the way to go and

we loved the gray crib, dresser, and accent pieces and everything else really made the room pop.

What does this color scheme mean to you?
I just thought that pink, white, and gold would be so cute together and it turned out better than I could have dreamed.

What accessories did you choose and why?
Above her bed she has hand crafted paper flowers from Etsy which I LOVE and the flower letters are also from ETSY, the signs on the wall all are from Hobby Lobby and the 3 bookshelves are from Amazon.  It was really important to make sure she had a library (there are at least 30 more books in her closet that don’t fit on the shelves).  Every sign in her room has some sort of meaning about being special, being loved, and just being our everything!

What is your favorite piece or design element in the nursery?
My favorite piece in the entire nursery is her elephant balloon tree which is above the changing table.  We had a wedding tree (guestbook signature) for our wedding so it was important that our daughter had one too.

We had everyone sign it at her gender reveal party and then again at my baby shower.  I adore it and it’s from Peachwik.com

Have you thought of how you will use the nursery pieces down the road and can you tell us?
Yes, absolutely!  I adore the headboard in her crib, I think that when it’s time to convert her crib it will make the most beautiful bed and yes I have already bought her bedding- I couldn’t resist I saw it and it was too cute!  Right now her bedding is princess hippo’s from Pottery Barn Kids with a mobile of princess swans from Buy Buy Baby and I found princess swans at HomeGoods- too cute!  All of the pieces in her room are not “baby” pieces and aren’t things that need to be removed, taken off the wall to make that transition to when she will continue to grow.

What one word comes to mind when you step into the nursery?
Princess-Chic (Ok, I hyphenated, so I cheated) 😊

Well, that’s ok by us Stacey! 😊

Love on a spring breeze – Baby Lily Grace’s Julienne nursery (Part 1 of 3)

Think warm sunshine, the smell of freshly cut grass and colorful little flowers bobbing their bright heads in a gentle breeze. Well, hello springtime!

And that pretty much sums up Baby Lily Grace’s pretty évolur Julienne nursery.

We can’t help thinking how fortuitous, how appropriate it is for us to be featuring this lovely nursery that is all pink, white and gold in springtime. Because, to our mind, it seems to embody the very essence of what spring is all about.

The nursery is well-lit, thanks to a strategically placed window on the right corner of the wall opposite the entrance to the room. The fact that the room is not overly large coupled with the translucent chiffon drapes on the window, allows for a soft, filtered lighting that accentuates the warmth of the pink walls.

The crib, an évolur Julienne in Antique Mist finish rests against the left-hand-side wall. The wall above the head-boards is festooned with, what has now become ubiquitous, paper flowers from Etsy with Lily’s name in florals. A pink baby mobile hangs over the crib’s animal-print mattress and hippo-appliquéd quilt based on ivory white. Next to the crib, in the corner, are printed baskets with a veritable zoo of super-cute, super-cuddly stuffed animals and a pink, white-polka-dotted baby sized couch. Now, what more could a teensy little baby girl want?

Turns out, mom Stacey Cohen knows exactly what more she could want and makes sure it’s right there.

 

In the corner, by the window and against the opposite wall is a comfortable-looking grey glider and ottoman. The glider is stuffed with… you guessed it – little pink-white themed cushions. Over this are bookshelves for Baby Lily’s reading.

Next to this arrangement and directly opposite the crib is the double-dresser-changing station. The rest of the walls have a tastefully picked collection of wall-pieces.

Says Stacey, “My favorite piece in the entire nursery is her elephant balloon tree which is above the changing table.”

Our favorite? ‘When God made me, he said ‘TA-DA!’

Of all the nurseries we have covered so far, this is one nursery where the crib does not take center-stage. Instead, it simply blends into the décor, serving, as it were, a functional need. The reason for this, it seems to us, is quite simple. Everything – every single piece of furniture and accessory – has been carefully selected with not the nursery in mind but Lily Grace in mind.

It is beautiful, it is chic and it is deeply, deeply Lily Grace.

And we just love it all. TA-DA!
