Laura’s Little Fellow’s Nursery

Happy May! Flowers are blooming all over the city with bright colors and delightful aromas. I took an adventure over the bridge to meet Laura and her cute little golden retriever pup. Laura has four months to go before her little love arrives. What a wonderful way to start the springtime!


Get This Look!

First thing’s first: The Crib

The Elise Spindle Crib is one of our newer models! With lathe-turned spindles and a soft grey finish this crib provides exceptional comfort and meet industry standards for safety. This vintage inspired piece is also available in Cloud White and Black. As shown below, this crib is able to turn into a toddler bed when needed. I would suggest you buy the conversion kit at the time of the crib purchase in able to ensure the correct color and model.


Next, Laura wanted a modern, light and airy feel to her nursery. She liked the grey tones and wanted her bedding to reflect that. The soothing color palette of the Malibu Chic collection fit what she had in mind. Made of 100% organic cotton, this nursery bedding set includes greys and mint greens/light aquas for a touch of simple soft color. This set reads as online only on our website, but we have received many pieces in the store. If you like the set and want to see it in person you can contact your local Pottery Barn Kids and see if they carry it in their store! malibu-chic-organic-nursery-bedding-1-o

Many of our furniture collections come with a matching dresser and nightstand set, however the Elise is not one of them. We are able to match it with the Emerson collection because of the same shade of grey. This is an extra-wide nursery dresser with topper. The best part about our nursery dressers are the one step ways to turn them into stand-alone dressers for your children when they’ve outgrown needing to be changed. There is a simple bracket mounted to the back of the dresser that screws in the topper. Once the topper is not needed the screws come out and your topper comes off! No ugly holes in the front and easy to store if you’d like to use it again for a baby in the future! The Emerson Extra Wide Dresser and Topper set has classic round wood pulls, feature English dovetail joinery, and are set up in your home full assembled!


Finally, Laura needed a place to feed and read to her lump of joy! Pottery Barn Kids offers expertly crafted upholstered nursery chairs and ottomans in a variety of colors and fabrics to choose from. Going along with the theme, a Linen Blend Grey was chosen for her Modern Wingback Convertible Rocker and Ottoman. When deciding on a rocker it is best to check out the lead time. Most rockers and upholstered fabric are handcrafted and individually made for you, so the delivery date can take some time. Some fabrics have a  quick ship option, this usually takes 1-3 weeks. Others, will need a lead time of 8-10 weeks.


That’s it for this lovely May Nursery! Now it’s time to take some lemonade outside and crack open a good book! Let me know what you think of this nursery and what you would pair with the furniture or bedding.
