baby boy monaco's nursery tour

the nursery is officially ready to welcome a baby! it seems surreal and i can't wait to meet this little guy, whom i am destined to fall madly, deeply in love with. when we found out that we were having a baby boy, i knew i wanted the nursery to be gray, white {light/airy} with rustic, vintage, and personal touches.  the room is pretty small but has three large windows {which is why some of the photos were really hard to take!} i love the natural light though. in late october, my dad created a white accent wall on one wall {it's about 3/4 of the way up with hooks- so in love with how it turned out! thank you so much, dad!}  it helped give the tiny room a lot more character. seeing everything come together has been emotional and so special- i had the best time gathering pieces between july-december. i poured my heart and soul into his little room. i am so excited to share it all with you today- i hope you enjoy it! it feels serene, peaceful, and calm to me- which is what i hope he feels in his space, too.

the nursery tour: 
the quilt hanging on the bed was my blanket when i was a little girl- made with love by my paternal grandma, leona 
the bookshelves are from ikea - $4.99! each 
mary poppins stole my heart as a child. 
the crib is simple and mid-modern 
i have loved it for years and searched endlessly at all options but came back to this one from babyletto- the hudson crib 
{we both love it!}
i am also hoping to share more of his closet with you soon 
we used bins, baskets, and organizers to make more room 
most of his clothes are consignment/were on sale/vintage from instagram 
i loved searching for pieces for him 
{clothes for baby boys were surprising aDoRaBle!}
this fox paining was painted by mr. monaco's maternal grandma - it's so precious!! 
our baby photos/family photos surround the room 
the lord's prayer, a forest print, a personalized window my godmother made for baby that says 'love you to the moon and back,' and a letter i wrote him are also ready to be hung on a gallery art wall soon {hanging these pieces is the only step left!}
my aunt judy gave us this mobile and it's perfect
she also has a love for birds like i do! 
the utility cart was purchased at ikea! 
print from urban outfitters 
we picked up this guy at the paris market in savannah on our babymoon
he's from blabla kids- my favorite stuffed animals! 
the curtains are white with light gray poms
i love you. 
forever and ever.
the glider fits perfectly in this little corner of the room
{we love everything about it!!}
the color, size and it's so comfortable
i find myself just sitting in it at night sometimes and already feel so relaxed
there is also a hanging air plant hanging above it
this rocking chair was mr. monaco's when he was a little boy 
the air plant is from a local farmer's market {atherton mill for locals}
the lady is the sweetest!! my mom and i love her. 
hanging over the crib 
baby boy needed a wolf in his room 
{wolf was my maiden name/holds a special place in my heart}
plus, i found him while shopping with my mom over thanksgiving- even better :) 
i picked up these vintage pottery barn adventure blocks at salvaged beauty- an adorable vintage shop
art print in the glider area of the room 
there are a few more pieces with his little name on it 

{which we just love}
