henry’s thoughtfully vintage nursery

baby room ideasMandy recently sent me photos of the adorable room she put together for her son, Henry.  I love all the little details that showcase the thought and love she put into creating this space just for him.  My favorites include that pegboard, complete with diaper storage, and the alphabet cards strung simply above the crib.  She actually bought the cards at Anthropologie a couple of years ago, knowing she would use them in a nursery one day!  She also scored that Jenny Lind crib for free on craigslist, and painted it by hand (that kind of makes me want to cry thinking about painting all those spindles, but it looks beautiful!).  She also handmade the bedding and curtains, and found all the other furniture pieces vintage.  Visit her blog to see more photos!baby room ideasOn another note, Chip and I are currently in LA for a few days to celebrate our 5 year anniversary, and have a little bit of a babymoon.  Any fun suggestions on places we need to see and go?  So excited to be here!

    Glad you’ve caught L.A. while our weather isn’t awful…it’s hard to make suggestions without knowing what part you’re in. But I guess I’d suggest Santa Monica–lots of options in one spot, and Cha-Cha Chicken’s coconut friend chicken is really yummy.

    This is beautiful! I LOVE it! One small worry, though. The baby could get caught in the alphabet card twine. Sadly, babies and even toddlers have died getting caught in rope, usually from blinds, but this rope would be very condusive to strangulation. I would recommend removing it completely, at least when the baby is able to sit up. Love the nursery however, it is completely divine!
