The Nursery Completed: Agatha's Little Book Shoppe

Despite being the tiniest room in creation, Agatha's nursery took quite a long time to put together.  Thankfully everything is in place now and I just love how the room turned out.   So without further ado, here it is.

You might remember I had a slightly different layout for this space.  The main reason I moved things around was because it just felt more spacious in here with the larger pieces of furniture on the left hand side vs. the right. To refresh your memory, here was the original design (read all about it here)

That change meant a few others fell into place as well like nixing the picture molding and changing up the art but I'm still really pleased with how it turned out.

Rewind just a year and this is what the room looked like.


Or going way back to 2007, it was a hot mess.

Naturally I have one or two small touches I'd like to add in here (isn't that always the way?) but I'll do those as I have free time.  Hahahahaha.  Free time seems like such a joke right now.

Now if only we could get Agatha to sleep at night and then we could really pat ourselves on the back :)

  2. A room fit for a princess. Eventually she'll sleep thru the night fear not.

  3. This is just such a perfect space. I love every inch of it. The spot of turquoise is unexpected but brings it all together so well.

  4. Really turned out great! Enjoy making lots of special memories in her new room.

    Very stylish and sweet. Like the big turquoise chair with the coral. And the dictionary is the best!

    This is one of the cutest nurseries I have ever seen! And it is original! Well done! I did wonder why you chose a turquoise chair rather than the orange shown in your original drawing? I like the change-up, but wondered your thinking behind the new choice. I aim to do a couple of blogs soon on two nurseries as my daughter and daughter-in-law are each awaiting babies.

  8. That room is adorable. I love the colors you chose. Such a sweet little room to enjoy your Agatha. Good luck getting her to sleep. I know how that feels.

    Wow, this room sure has come a long way! I love the use of what limited space you had. The perfect little room for the perfect little lady!

    Beautiful!! Such a great color scheme, and I'm in love with that crib! It almost makes me want to have another baby.......almost.

  12. Oh, the books! I love how you've displayed them and I kind of what that word art for myself. The room is adorable.

    Absolute perfection! So fitting for your sweet girl. I love the color palette... so classic and polished while having a trendy edge. The curtains might be my absolute fave in the room next to those amazing navy walls.

  14. It's such a sweet beautiful room. You are so creative! You said you'd give source info in a future post - I'd love to read the framed prints on the dresser wall. (I hope you haven't posted those before & I missed them)

    This is such a stunning room! But, more importantly, it looks like a happy place and I'm sure Agatha can feel that already. I'd love to know where you got the frames for the prints and what size you have the prints at. I remember you posting about them before and I've been thinking of doing my own version but am not sure about the size.

    I spied Knuffle Bunny on Agatha's bookshelf! That's my all-time fave children's book. Make sure to get Knuffle Bunny Too and Knuffle Bunny Free if you don't have them already. Great job on the nursery!

    It's gorgeous! My baby (ahem, *toddler*) is in a room about the same size (our floor space is even smaller than the dimensions you gave earlier, but we do have a closet), so I completely understand the challenges. While I definitely appreciate the closet, I am SO envious of your space for a chair. We only have space for a tall, narrow dresser and a small crib (now small toddler bed). If I'm not mistaken, you mentioned earlier that your walls are plaster. I'd love to know what you use to hang things – especially those book shelves. We're ancient plaster around here too, and have the hardest time hanging things without the wall crumbling!

    The room is just darling and I love the colors you used. Time, yes it is used differently. Enjoy these moments, they are the ones you will look back and wish for the world you had them again. It goes so fast.

  21. I really love the colors you used. On thing about parenthood is you will get lots of unsolicited advice. But a good tip a mother of 5 once gave me was getting my baby acquainted with Day and Night. I was keeping the house like a dimly light cave 24/7 and once I heard this an made the changes he picked up on it and started to change his sleeping habits. My son is almost one and sleeps through the night, she'll get there. Eventually!

  22. It came out fabulous! I am designing my third child's room now and it looks like the same size about 12 x 12 LOL What program did you use for the original concept drawing, looks hip.

  23. One of the most beautiful spaces I've ever seen! Amazing choices. Beautiful work. Just lovely!

  39. Thanks! Its from Old Navy of all places. In case you are in the market for a tiny faux fur coat, its on clearance now :)

  40. Thanks Julia. We are working the double swaddle this week trying to get her to snooze for longer stretches at night. It's not quite making her a good sleeper just yet but its definitely helping.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Thanks! I have some photos of how I made it that I was thinking of sharing as a DIY post but then I realized its probably pretty obvious how to make your own :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh how I wish I had 12 x 12 - this room is less than 11x7! I drew the original design in illustrator - I don't have a CAD program.

  44. Thanks Jenna. That book's background photos are of our neighborhood so I was actually familiar with this book even before children's books were on my mind. Such a sweet little story.

  48. OH WOW! What a transformation from the beginning!!! I LOVE the color combos of charcoal gray, coral and turquoise. :) The chandelier and fabric are absolutely lovely. Stopping by from Centsational Girl. :)

  50. Preeeeeettttyyy! Really, great job, Stephanie! And I love how the Premier Prints window treatments came out (I'm going to pretend that you went with those because I suggested them ; )).

    So, soooo lovely!

    I just finished up the last few details (ha! right!) on my twins' nursery (even though they're 5-months-old). It's actually a somewhat similar color scheme minus the coral...and with gray wall...so not quite. Ahem. I'll shoot you the link.
