Baby George’s Nursery

Designing and creating a room is fun, building an environment is even more fun and challenging! When creating George’s room we thought about how we wanted the room to feel, what we wanted George to grow up looking at, thinking about and how we could make the most of each investment and piece for future babies and family. the result was better than we could have imaged! Here it is; a peaceful and loving space, calm, fun, useful and filled with personal & intentional expressions of love, art and family! In the few short weeks we have been home, Benjamin, George and I have thoroughly enjoyed our time in his room, even those late night feedings and especially the cuddles & snuggles; we hope you enjoy the space as well.

As we prayed for George in the womb and to this day, we pray that he would grow to be both courageous and kind. Benjamin and I made this piece that hangs above his crib. It was a collaboration, I watercolored the background and Benjamin lettered the words. An expression of love and prayer from mom & dad.

The above piece is the catalyst and culmination of art, family and love for the room. Each image represents an individual memory and aspect of George’s parents, grandparents and great grandparents. My mom drew and painted each image with love and as it hangs above his crib now and in his future rooms, we are and will continue to tell George stories and memories of his heritage of love.

Investing in a comfortable and beautiful rocker is something I am very glad we did! I have already spent countless hours in this chair and will spend many, many more! This is the West Elm Graham Glider in a custom heathered wool blend.
