Fleur's Little Pink Nursery

We moved into a new flat a few months before Fleur was born. It was a really hot summer in London and being so pregnant I was not the best at unpacking and decorating the flat at that time. The one room I wanted to focus on was the nursery. Even though everyone kept telling me, "All you need is a place to change the baby and a place for the baby to sleep, which for a few months is probably in your room." Well, even though that really was the truth, I wanted to get the room together so it could be the one peaceful spot in our flat where I could bring her to feed and spend time with her throughout the day. It isn't a huge space but it is the perfect space for her. With touches of pink and gold, her room turned out to be a lovely little space for our sweet little girl. 
I made the flower mobile that is above Fleur's bed. The ribbons are a mix of ribbons from my wedding bouquet {and it just happens to look similar to the large wreath that hung over our dinner table at our wedding}. It has only been during the last few weeks that Fleur is actually staring at it and smiling, it is so fun seeing her grow week by week!

I collected the prints below throughout my pregnancy knowing I wanted a gallery wall feature in her room. I love that each print has a special meaning to us. The Sir Oliver bow tie print was a cocktail at our wedding and Fleur's future buddy #siroliveruk. Il Etait Une Fois means Once Upon A Time in French and I hope Fleur grows up with the imagination of a fairytale. I got the print from the lovely Emily at Ever After PressEmma Block painted the pregnant pic of me at West Elm and she also painted the map of London, where Fleur was born. I had a good friend of mine Erin from Berinmade create a print for her that reads. "Be yourself. Unless you can be a unicorn, In that case, you should always be a unicorn.” - Alice in Wonderland which I will forever cherish! The watercolor is from an Etsy artist of peonies because, well, Fleur is a little flower, too easy right! I love the quote, "What if you Fail? Oh but my darling, what if you fly?". that I received at a workshop I attend with Bo Boutique. And lastly I put up a picture from our maternity session with Kylee Yee. I will eventually change it to a picture of us with Fleur but for now I love remembering the time we were waiting for her and that her parents love her VERY much. Not just a bunch of pics because I love them but because I love them and they mean something! Lucy Davenport - London Blogger - Urban Flip Flops

Her room isn't very big so instead of buying a big changing table we bought a dresser at IKEA that I fancied up with different drawer pulls from Land of Nod.

 I am so in love with the little pink table from West Elm. I'm tempted to put it in the living room but instead lucky girl Fleur gets it in her room.

We rent our flat so I am trying to avoid too many holes in the walls. Instead of a lot of shelves I have placed her collection of books in these pretty silver baskets from West Elm. Eventually I may need some shelves, but for now, these work great.

Fleur's collection of headbands and head wraps is growing. They are too pretty to hide so I have to put them out on display! 
One of my favorite pieces in her nursery is "Penny" the flamingo that I found one Sunday morning during our trips to Columbia Flower Market.
