Baby girl’s room is so so close to completion and I’ve been rearranging and fixing and tweaking and can not wait for the final reveal! But for now, I am here to share with you the two biggest purchases – her rug (ahem….rugs!) and her dresser. These two things were both the most expensive items but also the two statement items. They make the biggest impact and determine the overall vibe of the space. But enough talking…let me show ya my girls nursery rug and dresser already! psst – all items are linked at the bottom of this post!
First up the rug….
For the rug, I wanted to get something that had a more modern feel. I found a very inexpensive rug that was pretty colors and a traditional vibe….and even though the price was amazing, I knew in my heart that it wasn’t exactly what I wanted.
Then I found this one. It was WAY more than I wanted to spend but I knew that it would be an investment. The abstract, almost pixelated pattern mixed grays and pink and creamy white so perfectly.
The best part about this rug is the super soft and smooth and silky texture. The boys love sliding on it because it is super slick. Ella immediately lays down on it and rubs her hands up and down, snow-angel style.
After studying tons of nurseries on Pinterest and Instagram, I realized that a common trend that I saw was layering rugs for texture. I loved it! Sometimes the larger bottom rug was the less expensive textured rug and then sometimes the smaller top rug was the one that added texture. In this case, I wanted to add a thick fur rug to make it feel organic and soft.
The fact that the fur went so well with the colors of the larger rug was perfect! And the colors of the bedding coordinated as well….
The bumper and quilt are both from Pottery Barn kids. And the sheet is also from PBKids and I love the smaller delicate organic dot pattern. The pillow is from Home Goods and the unicorn is from Restoration Hardware.
Oh by the way do you spy the newly potted olive tree in the corner there? Love the way that turned out!
The fur rug I had near the crib at first but then I switched it over to the other side under the rocker to tie together the grouping of rocker/bookshelf/lamp.
Love the look. Don’t love the footstool with it 🙁 Maybe I’ll switch that to a different room!
This little wall is rearranged now but all the stuff stayed in the room 🙂
Just look at that fur rug….isn’t it so pretty with that bigger rug? I love the combination of these two together.
Okay now that you heard me gush over the rugs like a schoolgirl crush….time for the love of my life….the dresser.
The dresser was love at first sight. I have been dying to jump on the bone inlay trend but authentic bone inlay dressers are extremely expensive. Also I am not a huge fan of the faux versions….until I saw this one!
Usually faux bone inlay furniture is either painted which usually looks more noticeable close up or they use substitutes for the bone – like tile or resin. I honestly have no idea if this is tile, shell or resin but it looks CRAZY real for a much lower price point.
I told Jeremy that if she doesn’t love it her whole life….I will.
The dresser is super heavy (its solid wood with the overlay!) and the capacity of the drawers is good so we were overall very happy with the purchase.
Also those are the knobs that came with it. I think they are the perfect compliment to the design of the dresser. They allow the inlay details to shine and yet they are still subtly holding their own.
So that is the nursery so far. Like I said at the beginning – I already have switched things up so be on the look out – I will do the final reveal next!
