Now that I’m well into my third trimester (how is this pregnancy going so fast?!) we spent this past weekend working on baby girl’s nursery! I got some pink paint samples (for the walls? for the furniture?) on Friday over my lunch break and it was probably the first real thing I’ve purchased for this baby so far (I know, I need to get on it!)…Anyway, it made me really, really excited. Of course it was fun shopping for Shepard before he was born (and still is) but I have to say – decorating and shopping for a girl is very exciting. I fear that once I start, I won’t be able to stop 🙂 Today I thought I’d share a few of my favorite baby girl nursery pins that have given me lots of ideas and inspiration for how we’re going to decorate this baby’s room. I’m going pretty traditionally feminine, because why not? If she hates it and wants to paint it all blue in the coming years, she can have at it! You’ll have to wait and see which “pin inspo” we actually went with – I will definitely share before and after photos once it’s complete!
If you’re not following Motherhood for Me on Pinterest yet, I’d love it if you would! I share all of our blog posts there as well as others that I find on Pinterest that are relevant to that topic (i.e. pregnancy, birth stories, postpartum, toddler years, etc.) so it’s a great place to find even more mama-written stories that aren’t shared on our website!
I am a huge fan of Jillian Harris' decor style. I often draw inspiration from her blog and home decor anytime I'm looking to make changes to our furniture or home in general. I'd say a lot of her stuff is french country meets modern meets feminine. If you haven't checked out her blog, you definitely should.
There are a lot of really beautiful wallpaper / murals / decor options in the Monique Lhuillier for Pottery Barn line. I really like how this is framed in wall trim - very cool alternative to wallpapering an entire wall!
This is sort of a left turn in comparison to the other nurseries I pinned, but there's something that I love about this rainbow wallpaper. It's muted but colorful, fun, and definitely something that would be adorable for both a baby and a kid as they grow a bit older.
Can you tell I'm really into wallpaper, murals, and accent walls? I think this is categorized on Pinterest as a boys' nursery...but it's gorgeous for either a boy or a girl. I love the soft blues and ivory - keeping things light and bright but a bit different than your traditional flower wallpaper.
I know this isn't technically a nursery but I've been down a full rabbit hole on accent walls. Ever since Eric added wainscoting to our office this spring, we've gotten the bug to do similar projects in other rooms of our house. I also have a girlfriend who did this board and batten square trim but in white in her daughter's nursery, and it's unbelievably cool and gorgeous.
Ashley and her husband Ryan live in the suburbs of Chicago with their two daughters Palmer (5) and Remi (2). In 2018, Ashley left behind her corporate career selling software to pursue her Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing. She now works part-time as a Dermatology nurse, allowing her to do the work she is passionate about while also spending time with her daughters.
In her free time, Ashley can be found spending time with friends and family, geeking out about skincare, reading, or writing. She tries to be very honest when it comes to keeping a candid and raw lens on motherhood so less moms feel alone in the best (but sometimes hardest) journey of their lives!
