Blake’s Nursery that Transitions into a Toddler Room, is by far my favorite rooms in the house with its Desert, Modern, Scandinavian Theme. She was 9 months old when he “gave” her a nursery and I was so glad I waited. My style transformed so much in those first 9 months of being a mother of two. Plus y’all know I just love going against the grain and not conforming to any norms. You may have read my post on the Easy to Install Wall Paper with Rocky Mountain Decals. However, this post is going to cover every single detail of her room!
The focal point of her room is definitely the Aztec Wall Paper from Rocky Mountain Decals. We went with a simple, modern and gender neutral wall paper. I was wanting something that could grow with our style and family over time. Plus I was going for a Nursery that Transitions into a Toddler Room!
Nursery that Transitions into a Toddler Room Design Inspo:
What started the Desert Theme in Blake’s room (other than my deep love for Plam Springs/Plam Desert and Arizona) were these two prints! They originally had been in our “guest room”. I always try to purchase decor that can easily be moved from room to room.
The Coziest Nursery Corner:
This corner is definitely as cozy as it looks! This rocking chair was found on Craig’s List in 2015 when I was pregnant with Liam. I truly loved being able to use it twice! To make the wooden chair a little more cozy, we placed a genuine sheep skin over it. I was really able to channel all of the gender neutral desert vibes with this Copper Pearl Reversible Quilt. We kept the round STOENSE Ikea Rug that had been in the room from when it was Liam’s, at $59 this is one of my favorite rugs. Plus being round, it really complements all of the other shapes we have going on in the room.
Giving you a close up of this little corner, one of my absolute favorite pieces to use throughout the house is the FLÅDIS Basket from Ikea! At $9.99 you really cant beat such a versatile piece. We use the FLADIS basket for swaddles (pictured above) shoes, toys etc. In Blake’s room we store extra swaddles to help soften up the room. Plus let’s get real, that basket is totally hiding the cord from the salt lamp and floor lamp. All three of the cacti are from Target! I have linked a few that are similar here, here and here. The salt lamp of course is from Evolution Salt Co, and the table is GLADOM from Ikea, at $19.99 you are getting style, function and not breaking the bank. Last but not least, the floor lamp is from Target as well.
Nursery to Toddler Room, Function meets Fashion:
This corner is another favorite, we started with $4.99 Ikea BEKVÄM spice racks, and I actually flipped the hardware on the back of one of them in order to turn it into a shelf to hang. Another Ikea fav is the KUBBIS Rack with 7 hooks, I think we have a total of 4 of them throughout our house. They are super heavy duty and when properly secured to the wall, can hold multiple full backpacks and bags. We also used the Ikea HEMNES 3 drawer chest in white and I substituted these gorgeous Amerock Golden Champaign Knobs. Of course this corner is not complete without a few of our favorites, a custom mobile from Baby Jives, Baby Tula Backpack, and all of the Slumberkins!
This gold mirror from Target has become a staple in our house, I believe we have three! It looks amazing with the knobs that we put on the dressers and the circular shape really contrasts with all of the sharp corners between the wall paper and shelves.
Here is another view of the Ikea BEKVÄM Spice Racks.
Last but not least, we can’t forget where Blake sleeps! If you have been around the blog or Instagram for the last 4 years, you know that we have always skipped the crib. We use the Guava Family Lotus Travel Crib with a Dock a Tot Grand inside. This set up makes it easy for her to sleep virtually anywhere, because it is what she is use to! Not pictured, is our favorite Lollipop baby monitor!
