It’s finally finished friends! These eight weeks definitely flew by, but I’m so incredibly happy with our sweet little nursery! It’s one thing to design and finish a space, but it’s incredibly exciting to finish a space that a tiny human will soon occupy and grow up in! Cue all the tears! And I should mention that this room is mostly*** finished! There are tons of manufacturing and mail delays in Canada right now, so we’re still waiting on a light fixture, a part for one of the window coverings, and a mirror! But the space can definitely function without all of those things, so I’m calling it finished!
While we were working with multiple deadlines (and literal due dates!) it was still incredibly fun to participate in the One Room Challenge again! Shoutout to Better Homes and Gardens for hosting these each season! It’s a great way to stay motivated, and there are always so many talented people participating!

Guest Room Turned Nursery
We were lucky to start with a blank slate for this space! We started clearing out what was our guest room in April, did a ton of painting and a few projects, and here we are!
Designing this space was so much fun, and it came together just as I pictured. While I love gender-neutral nurseries, there’s just something so fun and magical about flowers and floral patterns, so this boho wildflower theme just kind of popped into my head once we found out we were having a girl. I knew I wanted a pop of colour and some pattern, but also lots of neutrals and textures too. I also wanted it to tie into the rest of our home’s style, and be a space that she will enjoy for years to come!
The Feature Wall
The room was ultimately designed around this incredible wall mural feature wall that we were gifted from Decor Imprime. As soon as I saw this pattern and the colour, I knew it would be perfect for this room! Anyone who knows me or follows me on IG knows that I’m a big fan of the colour green, and this tone is just stunning! If you missed our Wallpaper installation post, the peel & stick mural was super easy to install, and it’s textured too, which is extra fun! I would for sure do this again in another space – and the pattern selection they have is incredible!
I wanted something subtle to go above the crib against the wallpaper, and I fell in love with the wildflower quote print when I discovered it on Etsy. Throughout this project I was trying really hard not to go overboard with the whole flower theme (which is so hard!!) but I thought this was perfect! We also added a Ficus Audrey and a Variegated Rubber tree to the corner beside the crib. This room gets great light, and both of these grow into tall trees, so I think they will be perfect and enough out of reach once she’s able to reach out of her crib.
This room has a beige carpet that I’m not a huge fan of, so I was so happy to collaborate with Rugs USA on this stunning braided rug! I wanted something neutral that didn’t clash with the feature wall, and this was so perfect! It is so soft and the texture works really well with the overall vibe of the space.
Changing / Nursing / Reading Area
For the other side of the room, I wanted to go with neutral and calming colours, and bring in a bit more of a boho style. We found the Ikea Hemnes dresser on Facebook Marketplace, and I fixed it up and added these fun flower details using gold knobs and wooden beads. We also had some leftover peel & stick wallpaper, so I stuck it to the sides of the drawers for a fun surprise when you open them! We were also gifted these really fun prints and frames from Opposite Wall, and I loved the selection they have for kids prints! There were so many to choose from, and I had so much fun making this mini gallery wall.
To create a little reading + toy area I decided to paint and add caning to the ikea Flisat shelves, and I love how they look holding her little book collection! We also used the Ikea rattan plant stand to hold some of her toys, and it’s the perfect size and height.
This part of the space is still slightly unfinished, as we’re still waiting for a mirror to arrive. But I’m excited to see how it ties the space together, and I can’t wait for selfies with the wallpaper in the background! We’re also waiting on a new semi-flushmount light fixture to replace this room’s builder-grade boob light! This room isn’t super tall, so it will hang at the perfect height and it also has a subtle flower look! I can’t wait until we get to install it!
The wallpaper wall is definitely my favourite part of the room, but the closet is definitely a close second!! We decided to take the doors off of the existing closet and replace the builder-grade racks with the Ikea Aurdal system. I absolutely love the look of the open closet, and it added so much extra storage for all of her things! I highly recommend this closet system, as it was super easy to install, and the quality is amazing. With the four separate clothes rails, we can easily separate her clothes by size, and I love that in addition to storing her clothes and swaddles, there’s lots of extra space for decor and toys.
Overall I’m SO thrilled with how this little space turned out, and now the end of July can’t come soon enough! I can’t wait to have her here in her dreamy little room!
