We put the finishing touches on Lucy’s nursery at the tail end of last year, hanging the last piece of artwork and folding the final blanket into place right around the holidays. And then, we waited, but luckily, not too long! Creating a room for our little girl was one of our favorite makeovers to date, if only because we knew it was for an incredibly special person. Throughout the process, we invited the dogs to join us in the space and allowed them to sniff every corner, and we talked them through every project we completed. This crib is going to be for your new puppy, we’d say! Even now, CC loves inspecting the books on the shelves, and from time to time, we’ll catch her gumming a stuffie that she couldn’t resist.

You might remember that the nursery has come a very long way, and before we were fortunate enough to call it that, it was initially nicknamed The Scary Room! For years, this small, skinny room (coming in at less than 7′ wide and close to 16′ long) was used as storage. It overflowed with vintage items we might use someday, boxes that we never unpacked and all the miscellany that fell under the category of ‘out of sight, out of mind.’ Last winter, we stopped procrastinating, put our heads down and got to work. After ridding ourselves of hundreds of pounds of stuff, the original woodwork in the room was restored, we shuffled around electric, new floors were laid (an especially exciting feat, as the room had no floors to begin with!) and a closet build-out was completed. We ultimately decided on a soothing color palette of white on cream on neutral, and not for one second have we regretted that decision. Every day since Lucy has been home, we have found this room to be a quiet haven. It’s cozy. It’s peaceful. It feels like a hug wrapped in a blanket – just like Lucy herself. Every day, Scott and I turn on the whirrrl! of the sound machine (we have this one in every bedroom), draw the shades and turn on the night light, and we just play, nurse and cuddle with our new peanut.
