Finally, the big reveal! Just in time for Baby Deux to arrive. He’s due this Thursday, which coincidentally, is also my birthday! I’m so excited to meet this little dude. I hope he doesn’t decide to arrive even later than big Sister, who was a week late. Arden is so excited to meet her baby brother. Every day she asks me if “Baby Brother is done yet?”. Too cute. I hope she’s just as excited to share her room with hime too 😉
For now you’ll have to be satisfied with the shared room pictures of the now shared toddler room and nursery. You can check out my inspiration for the room on this post.
In one part of the room, I’ve set up a little nursing corner with my new comfy Nurseryworks Empire rocker from Hayneedle. Love. You’ll recognize Arden’s old poster, lamp and nightstand from her toddler room. On the nightstand is an fun little “treasure box” from Land of Nod. The “No Whining” Print is from Urban Outfitters and the frame is from Ikea. The throw pillow you’ll recognize from this post.
We had to swap out Arden’s gorgeous antique scalloped front dresser for the ever-popular Ikea Hemnes. There’s just no beating the price, size and capacity on this thing, I swear. And it’s pretty nice to have drawers that easily open and close! One side holds Arden’s clothing and the other is Baby Deux’s, plenty of room for all.
This black beauty of a lamp
you’ll recognize from Land of Nod, love the modern feel and small footprint. I found the chalkboard piggy bank at Target a few months ago. And the bunny vase
and ceramic berry bin
are from Anthropologie.
I’ve kept and reused Arden’s changer since they no longer have them for sale, which is a shame since the Cooshee changer
is so amazeballs. It’s wipeable, waterproof and never cold on a baby’s skin. Here’s a similar concept from Keekaroo
. The canvas art
is from Land of Nod and will definitely catch baby’s attention! I also have this wire 3-layered bin
to keep all the lotions and potions handy.
I love how this burlap US map from Land of Nod looks above Arden’s striped hooks. It’s on the wall right next to the closet, so when the closet is open it matches all of those burlap bins perfectly.
Now for Arden’s side of the room! She loves all shades of fuchsia and hot pink so I wanted to reflect that on her side. I love the iconic “For Like Ever” print
in her favorite color and I feel like it can last until teen-hood and beyond. The Minnen bed
is from Ikea and so is the striped blanket
. The white and black dotted duvet
is from Biscuit Home and the pink sheets
are from Pottery Barn Teen and they’re organic. The lettered throw pillow
is from PBTeen as well. The mattress I’ll go into on another day, because it’s awesome and deserves a post of it’s very own. But it’s from The Futon Shop
and it’s organic latex and wool with no flame retardants….awesomeness, I tell you!
For Baby Deux’s side of the room I went with mustard yellow accents for a more “manly” feel 😉 We used Land of Nod’s striped crib sheet
and felt bin
and we couldn’t forget a Jelly Lion
! I thought the pirate pillow
added a nice “boy” touch too. The mobile is from Arden’s nursery
, you can find it on Amazon
. The zebra
is also from Amazon and is too cute. We’re going to write Baby Deux’s name on the vintage chalkboard above his crib
, once we’ve decided on one!
On the wall between their two beds I hung up a few of these Ikea wall ledges
to store their ever growing book collection.
I added the Morovian Star pendant from our old home’s entryway in here. I thought it added a whimsical touch and hopefully distracts the eye away from the sea of cottage cheese surrounding it.
Simple black shades
adorn the windows – I didn’t want to get too fussy because the wall of books is right underneath the windows.
Oh and let’s not forget a necessary detail: If you’re going to have a Hemnes dresser it would be against the rules to use the original knobs 😉 These ones
match the striped hooks on the wall.
This vintage light switch faceplate is original to the room from my Mother-in-Law’s childhood when shared the room with her older sister. It was a dingy tan color and a fresh coat of black spray paint made it a little more fun and almost like it’s made of iron.
