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.
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.

It’s courtesy of Chasing Paper and it’s called Simple Stripe. The wallpaper is made of PVC-free fabric, printed with latex ink and uses a non-toxic adhesive. Which means no strange (aka toxic) smells at all and it’s good to go straight from the package right to your walls. It took me and the Mr. an hour and a half to install it. It was pretty painless, even for us 😉 And you can easily un-peel it and rehang if you end up installing it a little crooked *ahem* – not that we did that or anything.
Here’s a few boring “before” pictures:
First things first, the closet (and the whole room) received a couple of nice, new coats of paint. I used Lowe’s Valspar Ultra Paint and Primer In One because it’s no VOC and has great coverage. I had Lowe’s mix it up in Benjamin Moore’s Decorators White.
After that we added a couple of my go to closet shelves from Lowe’s. They’re only $12.99. That’s less than the price of most decorative storage bins! They really help differentiate Arden’s side of the closet and Baby Deux’s.
I used these adorable black and white zig zag baskets from Land of Nod and they fit perfectly in the shelves. The green art caddy is from Land of Nod as well. It’s perfect to hold all of those little knick knacks that come along with newborns.
On Arden’s side of the closet, her dresses, coats, skirts are hanging from the original rod on these baby/toddler sized wooden hangers. They’re the same hangers that Mom and Dad use, but smaller. Love that. We use the hangers with clips for her skirts and when she was younger they were perfect for her dresses and matching kick-pants.
In the picture below, you can see how the wallpaper shows a bit of the texture from the wall behind it. It’s really not noticeable in person, but it’s accentuated by the camera flash, but obviously the wallpaper would probably work best on flat walls. Also in this picture you can see the slight seam where one panel of the wallpaper meets the other, it’s barely noticeable.
Baby Deux’s side is still pretty empty, but I’m sure that will change when he arrives! Right now he only has a couple of cold weather bunting suits hanging. We’re ready for the cold weather here in California 😉
I love opening this closet now, it’s so organized and coordinated. I just wish all of the closets in this house were just as pretty! And the closet coordinates with the rest of the nursery, so if I leave the doors open it actually looks good. Might have to remove the doors…still debating on that.

I used Land of Nod’s bedding as my inspiration for both sides of the shared room. The goldish yellow in the crib sheet really helps warms up all of the black and white going on. And Arden’s favorite color is hot pink, so those neon pink sheets were a no brainer. Now all that’s left is to combine the two in one room…easy, right? 😉
