archer's nursery

archer nursery

Heather and I spent months sharing Pinterest boards and texting photos and links to things to get for the baby's room. We decided to make it woodsy and smart. Kid friendly, but not childish. We wanted a stimulating, interactive environment that didn't scream BOY, but something he could also grow into.

Heather and I put a lot of effort into making Archer's nursery, and there are still a couple of finishing touches to be done, but I think we nailed it.

I took most of these photos before a couple things were changed/added. The wreath and national park posters above the crib between the birch trees were place holders for some embroidery hoops I made. We decided to fill that space in with a bunch of different sized embroidery hoops. We have three to start.

Some other lighting solution's gotta go where that tall lamp/Christmas light situation is.

 Heather and Guy used the Sky Map app to place constellations throughout the room.

 IKEA bug mobile, log pillow, and crochet toadstool rattle

Heather got a Moon in My Room light for this wall and I'm obsessed with it.

and a rocking horse that's been in Guy's family for years

Archer's Aunt Amber got him a marquee letter A, which we put under the arrows

(the lower garland was just part of the "Welcome Baby!" decor)

 "Look! Moon!"

We ordered a green shag rug from IKEA to pull the room together and sort of resemble grass.

The plan is to fill that wall in behind me with more embroidery hoops.

I think once we have that space filled in, a different light for next to the crib, the area rug, and some tie backs for the curtains I will be super happy. The next step would be to convince Heather to get a changing table and/or a new dresser. Baby steps, as they say.
