A piece of heaven on earth – Baby Aubree Skye’s Aurora Nursery (Part 2 of 3)

After 3 boys I’ve been dreaming of a girls nursery for so long…

And then the dream came true. Baby Aubree Skye is Alison Russo’s only girl child and a rainbow baby. Says Alison:

“So her name is Aubree Skye. She is our 4th baby. We have 3 boys. Braydon who is 9, Noah 7, and Blake 3 years old. Aubree is now 10 months old. Our boys are so in love with her! She is our rainbow baby. I unfortunately suffered a miscarriage before her and my husband and i decided our family was complete. Well our lives had a different plan because this little miracle was truly meant to be here. She has completed our family and she continues to bless us everyday. After 3 boys, finding out the gender was a day i will never forget. My ultrasound tech turned the dark ultrasound room pink with pink lights and we all just screamed and my husband and i of course cried! I knew that once i found out we were having a girl that her nursery had to nothing short of amazing ! “

In this post, we talk to Alison and find out what her inspirations for her baby’s nursery were and how she set about putting this charming nursery together.

What was your inspiration for the nursery design and décor?
My inspiration for the nursery design and decor were three simple colors. Pink, Gold, and Grey. I started with colors and then researched different items I knew I wanted.

What drew you to évolur over other nursery brands?
What drove me to évolur over other nursery brands was the look and design. It was everything I was looking for. Pure elegance.

Did the room pose any design challenges?
It’s a bit on the smaller side but no big issues.

Did you and your spouse agree on style, or did you blend styles and how?
My husband pretty much let me take the wheel. He just wanted pink and grey but I assured him to trust me with the gold. He is so happy he did because he loves it. After 3 boys I’ve been dreaming of a girls nursery for so long so he let me do whatever I wanted.

What does this color scheme mean to you?
This color scheme is everything i dreamed a little girls room would be. It was a dream come true to finally be able to put the color pink in our home. The touch of gold is just perfect.

What accessories did you choose and why?
So in the nursery I have her name on the wall in gold and also some gold dots. These are decals that I purchased from Etsy. Since most of her room was grey and pink here is where the touches of gold come in.

Also the flowers on the wall I purchased from Etsy. They were my own color design. Again small touch of gold with the leaves. Also on the wall are some gold picture frames I purchased from Amazon. The pictures inside those frames, I also purchased from Etsy. That was super easy , you purchase the file for $5 and have it printed out at your local staples.

On top of her armoire there are two more frames with sayings. Again frames are from Amazon, sayings are from Etsy. Also on top are mason jars, another little touch of gold. I bought these painted from Etsy and flowers I bought from Micheals craft store.

Her hamper is also gold and purchased from Babies R Us. Curtains and pillows were from Overstock.com. Also her curtain tie backs are from Amazon. Another little touch of gold.

What is your favorite piece or design element in the nursery?
My favorite piece has tome the Armoire. It is so beautiful and elegant, pictures won’t do it justice ! Also my favorite are all the little touches of gold, a perfect element to add elegance.

Have you thought of how you will use the nursery pieces down the road and can you tell us?
I plan on using it forever for her. The quality is amazing and I know it’ll last a lifetime. This furniture will grow with her and will also fit any element we want to change down the road. It’s fit for a princess!

What one word comes to mind when you step into the nursery?
Aw man one word ?? I don’t know if I can say just one ! Haha. If I had to choose just one I think it would be elegance. Its just beautiful and fit for a princess. The furniture is just breathtaking in person. I would sit in her room and rock before she was born and just take it all in. I felt like I was in a fairy tale waiting on our princess. The room just took my breath away. Peaceful, calm, elegant, whimsical, just absolutely beautiful and everything I dreamed of for our daughter and more.

A piece of heaven on earth – Baby Aubree Skye’s Aurora Nursery (Part 1 of 3)

Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,…

So this poem by W.B. Yeats (for the poetically inclined, the full poem is available here) goes. And this nursery that mom Alison Russo put together for her youngest and only girl, Baby Aubree Skye brings to life this eloquent description of heavenly beauty.

This nursery is all warm pink and grey with gold highlights. The room is well-lit with grey walls that match the furniture – The Aurora collection in Akoya Grey. The room is not over-large and the crib, dresser with changing table, the armoire and a grey glider, all occupy adjacent walls in a flow of neatly arranged, easily accessible baby things.

Everything in this nursery is pure elegance. It’s a little surprising, because while it is almost a cliché – pink and grey complement each other – there would be a definite question mark against the gold. Well, we certainly dropped the q-mark after seeing Alison’s incredible work here.

Since the furniture occupies most of the room, there is not a lot of space left for non-functional items. But then, who needs them? The gold highlights set off the warm pinks in this room so beautifully that one is happy to just soak up all the beauty of this color-play.

The wall decor, however, does include painted flowers over the dresser and gold-framed pictures. The gold decal over the crib leads the eyes to Aubree’s name on the wall over the crib. Also, of course, in gold. A grey carpet covers the room and the finishing touches are provided by the warm pink rugs  – one in front of the crib and one by the glider.

The other little essentials in the room are either ivory or white.

Our next post, as usual, will cover a short interview with the proud and happy mom, where she will tell us why and how this nursery came about. So wait for it.
