mister noam's nursery

Finally little Mister Noam has fallen asleep long enough for me to actually post these pictures! Not to mention this is the first time I had a chance to tidy it up enough for a photo shoot...it doesn't usually look this neat unfortunately. This nursery has been a loooong time in the works and I think it is finally done...it might just be my favorite room in the house. It has a really peaceful feeling as soon as you walk in. Makes 3 am nursing sessions kinda enjoyable!



One of my favorite pieces is this pouf I had made. I had seen a vintage circus fabric pouf at Chatelet but it was almost $300 so I didn't buy it and I was forever regretful. But then I learned I could have this one made for $95 and it could be the fabric of my choice! I love it! Also loving my Alef Betty series on the wall...such cool modern Hebrew art!



The "change station" was a huge achievement considering all the dressers we wanted were on indefinite back order weeks before Mister Noam was due! This one is from Pottery Barn and although way more expensive then we had intended, in the end I'm so glad we got it. It is perfect height and provides tons of storage. The cool diaper tin was from Pottery Barn as well. The quilt folded above the change table is the one of all my mom's clothing that a family friend made each one of us after my mom passed. For some reason both Noam and Sage smile and giggle at it when they are being changed there...it's really amazingly sweet and I like to think they are giggling with their Grandma!


We chose the owl fabric for the curtains and he loves staring at it! And here is a collection of trinkets I've gathered that make me smile...glad I have a place for them now!


Sock monkey brothers on the naughty chair!



We just bought this amazing vintage balloon mobile and it was the final missing touch to the room. I didn't know I was waiting for it but I was! I'm just as mesmerized by it as Mister Noam...I think I need one above my own bed! The combination of the balloons and the pennant flags add that hint of circus you know I love without being too obvious. I really didn't want his room to be themey at all and I wanted it to be somewhat gender neutral...although I realize I painted the walls blue...but it is such a pale yummy blue it doesn't really scream BOY when you are in there I swear!


And of course I had to include a picture of Mister Noam enjoying his new mobile in his delicious new room!

The room (and baby) are adorable! The personal touches are sweet, especially the quilt to remember your mom. What a precious heirloom.
