I know most of you have been waiting patiently for the Big Nursery Reveal! for a while now! It’s so exciting, no!?! I’m only kidding. I’ve been the one waiting to finally reveal the nursery because that meant I could finally say it’s finished!! And that is it, my friends! All I need is our baby boy to complete the space! Okay, maybe I’ll add the first letter of his name to one of the walls! We’ll see.
As I said in this post here and here, we went with a gender-neutral wall color and palette made up of natural woods and whites, then added some personal touches and gender-specific accessories. I wanted a calming place to have our baby rest his head and a place we can transition easily when he’s older. When ever I say that, I always think of those bridesmaid dresses they always say you can wear again, in the back of my closet, yep, still haven’t worn them. Maybe better thinking is Baby #2 will enjoy the space next while Baby #1 moves into another room all together. Yep, I’m a perpetual planner.
The bumper pad will be forgotten, due to the pediatricians new advisories against them in infancy. I may add one later when he gets a little older to protect his arms and legs but for now, it will stay open.
I’ll try to give a detailed list of all the goodies at the end.
Lastly, the other man of the nursery! We’re taking bets if he’ll sleep in our room or the nursery when the baby comes!

Love the nursery! All the little special details make it so unique. Baby boy Snitker will love it!
Thanks Alicia! I’ve had a really fun time putting it all together! ;) Can’t wait to have him here! We’ll have to have our babies meet soon, too!
I love your nursery (ours has similar color palette) – you’d done a beautiful job with it.
I was wondering if now, that you’d a chance to use the West Elm glider, you could tell me if you like it or hate it. I’ve seen this glider mentioned several times, but there are no reviews about how comfy it is for nursing. Could you share your experience?
Hey Maggie – I would love to share with you my thoughts about the glider. Bottom line: We love it. I use it a lot with Jack and those first few months, you definitely feel like you live in it. I love the high back. The hubs and I are both tall to begin with, but it was definitely nice to rest your head (sometimes fall asleep) on something when you’re nursing. The glider has cleaned up nicely, too. With those untimely vomit sessions, a little warm water and cloth does away with everything we have had to deal with thus far. I did look at the website recently, and they have added fabric options to the line which will probably give you better options than just the two we got to choose from. I would also advise getting the ottoman. At first the added expense was not too appealing, but now I’m happy we got the ottoman too. It’s nice to put your feet up on anything but the way they rock together is such a nice feature. I guess my one “complaint” would be with the velvety fabric. When you get up from sitting on it, the suede fabric shifts and a lovely butt print remains. Obviously one swipe with your hand to the fabric and it goes away, so it’s a manageable complaint. All in all it’s held up really well. The cushions look like new and haven’t worn. Well, I hope that helps! Enjoy your new adventure with your little one, and if you have any other questions don’t hesitate!
Is the Pashmina 100% or more? Beautiful nursery!
Jack’s room is Benjamin Moore Pashmina AF-100. I bought natura paint, their No VOC line. Is that what you mean?
It looks a little more saturated, but could just be my monitor. I’m seeing that many people are asking to have the colors mixed at 75, 100, 125, 150%, etc in saturation to get lighter or darker with same color. We are having BM Pashmina AF-100 painted in our home as I type. I love it, but do think I should have had it mixed at 125 or 150% saturation with all the natural light we get! Thank you so much for your reply!! Your home is lovely!
Oh, right, ours is straight! No extra saturation here! 😉 Thank you! I’ll put up our girls nursery someday, we used Pashmina there too!
could you please tell me the trim color?
I’m sorry, the trim color came with the house. I did have it color matched to touch up some spots and can give you the color they did for that, I just need to find it. It might take some time, but I’ll get back to you.
