Boho Neutral Nursery_Natalie Strahorn_Washington DC.JPG

Nursery Reveal


I’m super excited to share the details of the baby’s nursery because I really did this on a budget.  I repurposed quite a few items from our home, and then purchased pieces to fill in the spaces to create a neutral boho jungle vibe.  I didn't want anything too cutesy, but instead a space that felt warm and chic- basically somewhere I wouldn’t mind hanging endlessly while chained to the baby breastfeeding.  I should have installed a laptop table to really hit a home run and multi-task. Below the images, I’ve listed the items I repurposed and purchased to pull this nursery together.


Crate & Barrel Kids TeePee - $159: This used to be in Scarlett’s room, but once we transitioned her to a bed, we no longer had room for a Tee-Pee. So take note if you want an item that will live longer in your nursery/little one’s room, because a Canopy is just as adorable and takes less space.  We purchased this one for Scarlett’s room.

West Elm Velvet Curtains – Metal $79 – 119 each:   These were in our living room in our old home and I didn't have a place for them once we moved.  So these curtains were one of the first pieces I moved into the nursery and worked around them.  The added bonus is that they really block out light, and trust me when I say, blackout curtains are a must with a little one.

Babyletto Hudson Crib - $379:  I really loved this crib we used for Scarlett.  It was fairly easy to adjust the mattress height as needed, and when we were ready to transition her to a bed, we simply removed one side of the crib, which turned it into a small bed low on the ground.  We let Scarlett use this crib as a bed for about 2 months before transitioning her into a big girl bed and moving this into the baby’s room.

West Elm Velvet Navy Swivel Chair – No longer available for purchase.  This was in our old family room and I didn't have a place for it when we moved into our new home.  So I was thrilled that it worked here.  The downside is that it doesn't have a tall back or actually rock, which is preferred for a baby’s room.  But I simply didn't want to buy another glider chair, so we’re going to make this work.

Ikea Malm 6-Drawer Dresser - $199

Keekaroo Peanut Changer - $109:  This is an expensive changing pad BUT the material is a soft plastic-like material which is incredible for easy cleaning.  And I like the modern design.  We bought two, one for each floor.

Ikea Lack Tall Standing Shelf - $59.99


 Target Project 62 Faceted Curtain Rods - $24.99 Each

Ikea Sinnerlig Bamboo Ceiling Light - $69.99: We paid another $40-60 to have someone from the Thumbtack app come and swap out our existing light for this one.

Amazon Toy Sorter - $49.99: I wish we’d bought the one I linked to make my life easier, but instead we bought a white one with light pastel color bins and plans to spray paint the bins silver.  12 cans of spray paint later, we spent more money on spray paint than the actual shelf itself, but I’m happy with how it turned out.

Ikea Askvoll Bedside Table - $49.99: Honestly, the quality isn’t great, but it does the job.
