Today we are sharing a sweet gender neutral nursery designed by Lauren of The Picket Fences Blog. Baby Anderson's nursery is a beautiful combination of neutral colors and classic white furniture.
Solid wood molding and graceful lines adorn the Foothill Crib from Million Dollar Baby. Lauren chose the warm white color, which blends perfectly with this neutral nursery. The soft green paneled wall is the perfect backdrop for the white crib. Lauren chose our popular Washed Linen in Ecru Stripe bedding collection which is made of a washed stripe neutral linen. Perfect for a unisex baby's room.
The adorable felt deer crib mobile is from Etsy.
The comfy white glider is from Delta Children products. A leather accent pillow adds texture a contrast. Handcrafted knit doll Noah the Dog from Cuddle & Kind is soft and sweet.
Accordion racks are great for organizing nursery items and are decorative too. Sweet wood birth announcement sign is from Wondermint Goods.
We love the popular trend of using a seagrass basket for the changing area. See more on this fun idea on our Changing Basket Blog post.
Modern Burlap, the maker of this muslin blanket, donates $5 to charity for each product sold.
A cozy window bench is surrounding by decorative shelves. Nursery shelves are the perfect spot for memorabilia and keepsake items.
This room holds a special place in Lauren's heart, as 1 week before Anderson's due date, after not feeling movement from the baby she went in to the doctor for a check. Baby Anderson no longer had a heartbeat and did not make it to birth.
Lauren reflects: "One area I felt committed to address head on was thinking through how to cope with Anderson’s nursery–the beautiful room that his dad and I lovingly planned for many months. Many nights we would just sit in there and think about our little guy’s future–from what sports he might like to play to how we would eventually convert this room into a ‘big boy’ room. I anticipated that visiting his empty nursery would hurt my aching heart.
But I didn’t want that hurt to last forever. Instead, I decided that I wanted this room to be a place that serves as a kind of sanctuary, a place that comforts me, where I can sit and reflect on the nine months he was here with us. One day, I hope this room becomes my foxhole of faith, or my physical place where I go to be still with God. I want to enter it and feel at peace while I reflect on the things that make me feel closer to Anderson, like looking at his scrapbook while sitting in the rocking chair. But I also want to have this room to do things I enjoy for myself like reading or blogging."
Thank you so much Lauren for sharing this beautiful room with us.
The heartfelt love for baby Anderson is abundant throughout his sweet nursery.
