I am so excited to finally share Josie’s nursery tour! It’s been a work in progress, that’s for sure, and even though it’s still not officially complete, I can’t wait any longer to share it with you! Her nursery was previously Tim’s office, workout room, video game room, storage room, and our guest room, and if you haven’t seen the before and after reel on Instagram you don’t want to miss the full transformation.. it’s quite a site to see 🙂
I initially shared my pink nursery inspiration in this post. I knew I wanted to make the room a sweet feminine pink space, but also wanted it to feel mature so we could use the furniture pieces as she grew. The first decision for the space was deciding on the perfect pink paint color for the nursery. I sampled over 10 different popular paint colors, and decided to go with Sherwin Williams Intimate White. It’s a soft, creamy blush pink and really pops with the ivory furniture. I was worried it would be “too pink” but it turned out perfect. We moved this light fixture from the nook of our bedroom into this space. I’m still on the hunt for something to go along the wall over the crib.
There was a little drama with the crib. I initially purchased this tufted crib, but realized after we put it together it didn’t match the website description and photos showing there were three mattress heights. After a little back and forth with Pottery Barn Kids, the website was edited to match the new manufacturing of the crib with only two mattress heights. Anyway, it turned out to be a blessing because I ended up exchanging for this crib and I’m so much happier with it! This crib it can convert into a full sized headboard, so in the long run it’s a better investment. It’s also a little shorter in the front which makes it easier to lower her into with only two mattress heights.
For her bedding we have this crib mattress since it’s non toxic and 100% breathable. The bed skirt and crib bows were an investment, but really elevated the simple space and I couldn’t be happier with them! If you’re wanting to order, this is the color heirloom pink and there are a ton of listing options to choose from depending on what you’re looking for. Debbie, the shop owner, was more than accommodating to make my own custom listing to get exactly what I wanted – I got 4 crib bows, a bed skirt, 4 smaller curtain bows, and the ruffle pillow. I originally bought the curtain bows thinking they would go on each end of the curtains, but I thought it may be a mit much so I’m thinking of other ways to use them. I actually used one for Josie’s first month photo. I found a similar pink ruffle bow pillow here.
You may recognize this dresser and mirror from my office. When I initially purchased the dresser, I had every intention of eventually using it in a nursery one day. We use the top as her changing station with the Hatch changing pad and store her diapers, burp cloths, wipes, swaddles, and pajamas inside the drawers. Hanging above is this gorgeous vintage inspired gold mirror that really makes a statement in the room. I share more inspirational ways to use this mirror in your space here. Just to the right of the dresser is her diaper pail and it’s a must have to keep the smells contained.
Her ivory rocker is the perfect size for a more petite nursery. It’s made of performance fabric and you can usually find a 20% off coupon here if you register with your email. It looks similar to one from Pottery Barn Kids for a fraction of the price! The ottoman provides plenty of storage for extra blankets.
For the window treatments, my Mom whitewashed the bamboo roman shade that was already present there to lighten it up. I originally ordered this gold curtain rod in May, but it’s still hasn’t shipped.. so I used this more affordable option instead! The scalloped curtains are a heavier blackout material, which is a must for any nursery space. Next to the window is a cube storage shelf that I originally had in my office closet. It serves as storage inside the gold polkadot storage cubes, and also holds some of her growing book collection. The floral print was a Home Goods find a few years ago. This is the sweet little baby book I got for her, it’s so pretty it doubles as decor!
The closet makeover was what I was most excited to see come together. I shared my original inspiration in my nursery update that was a custom closet, but I knew I wanted to do something more budget friendly. I shared how we transformed the builder grade closet into this DIY custom nursery closet here. I absolutely love how it turned out! The wallpaper took me what felt like months to decide on because again, I wanted something budget friendly and wallpaper can be expensive! I rounded up all the patterns I was looking at here. I decided on this pre-pasted wallpaper because the blushy pink matched the paint color perfectly, and I love the subtle print of flowers and butterflies. The bow moccasins were one of the first things I purchased when I found out we were expecting a girl. I repurposed one of my own jewelry stands to use as her bow holder, but I wouldn’t be surprised if her collection outgrew this pretty soon 🙂

Linking some of Josie’s clothing below. If you’re shopping for littles or looking for my favorite baby gear, be sure to visit the Strawberry Chic Boutique here! I link my purchases and finds here so it’s updated pretty often.
Just to the right of the wall by the door is a tufted blue bench. It’s pretty bare over there, so I need to figure out what to do with that space and add some printed pillows. It’s a convenient spot to put down and fold laundry and place random things when packing up her diaper bag. As far as finishing touches, I need to decided where to hand these cute bow hooks and find artwork for the walls. I’ll be sharing any updates with y’all over on Instagram!
I hope y’all enjoyed the tour of Josie’s room. It quickly became my favorite room in the house!
