Nursery :) part 1

{Nursery Part 2 is HERE.}

Here is the nursery! Well, actually the first half of the pictures :) Thankfully, Brent's mom is a wonderful photographer took lots for us!

Brent and I put a lot of time and effort into it we love the way it turned out! Luckily, we both had the same taste on most thing and even Brent made some quite a few design decisions. It was fun doing a nursery for a boy and a girl. As I've mentioned before, I really like the eclectic look, and I thought it would go great for the twins' nursery. We also had several friends that gave us advice and input and that helped out tremendously!

Back in January, I decided to get a new blog header. A few days prior, I decided I wanted to use polka dots and chevron in the nursery.  I've kind of stuck with the patterns on many things during this pregnancy. I love them both!

I'll do a part two of the nursery and it will give links and such where I got things from. Many were also kindly gifted!

The first place we took Knox & Sloane when we got home last night was to their nursery. We are pretty certain they liked it :)























The pictures were taken last Wednesday and two days later, Knox & Sloane were born! We've been home almost 24 hours. It's been fun, busy, sweet, hectic, etc. Here they are hanging out today.


Brent's mom is also putting a picture slideshow together of Knox & Sloane's birth and their first few days! I can't wait to see it all and share :)

  2. It looks wonderful. You have a great eye for decorating. (I may be a bit biased because I have become a bit chevron-crazy myself lately.) I love the picture of the dog that looks like Elton in the swing and the one of you and Elton in the nursery. So sweet.

  5. What a serene & sweet nursery! I love all of the boston terrier things...so fun. Your babies are precious. Does it feel real yet?? It took me a couple of days for it to sink in once we brought Grayson home! I'm sure Knox & Sloane LOVE their new room!

  7. Megan, I have been following your blog for quite some time now and have never commented, but wanted to tell you how wonderful the nursery looks. Even more so, though, are your new precious babies. They are perfect in every way and I see a bit of Cohen in them. I know you and Brett with cherish every moment with them. Best of luck to you and I cannot wait to read about this new chapter of your life.

  11. So beautiful...love the canvas print "love you to the moon and back"! And the babes look beautiful. How did you sleep or should I say did you sleep? I will be praying for you...nursing 1 baby is tough the first few weeks so I can't imagine how 2 would be....even just keeping up with diapers etc. It can be overwhelming...so don't worry if you are feeling the tinest bit stressed among your joy! Blessings!!

  15. WOW- it looks amazing!!! What beautiful pictures- so lucky to have a photographer in the family! I'm working on a nursery for our little guy due in October- I noticed that I have the same pair of blue and white sneakers for him (ordered from zulily or totsy!?) and we have that swinging dog print, too- only ours is a pug instead of a boston! ;) You guys did an absolutely WONDERFUL job on the nursery! It's amazing...just like those sweet babes!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Um, it's so perfect! it's definitely our style and has similar elements to our nursery!

    Where is the gray chevron fabric from?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Very sweet! Anthropologie has some grey chevron bath baskets that I bought for my baby's nursery that might look great in yours. I'm using mine for toys and laundry. They're a bit spendy, but so cute!

    ReplyDelete

  22. I love the nursery, you two did a GREAT job. It has such a light and airy, yet personal feel to it, perfect for a nursery. I like how you guys incorporated Elton into and Cohen. The pic of Elton in the swing is just too cute.
    I have to ask though..is one of of the pics on the top white shelf David Hasselhoff?

    ReplyDelete

  24. The nursery is beautiful!!! So happy for you and Brett... I had twins born on 8/19/78. They were also a boy and a girl they turned 30 years old this year. They were my third and fourth of 5 children.. I was crazy enough to want one more after that. So I had 3 boys and 2 girls. Knox and Sloane are so lucky to have you and Brett as parents. Good luck...rest when you can and ENJOY!

    ReplyDelete

From the crazy cute art work, to the little night light in memory of Cohen, to the fun green clock, and even the little "baby elton" in a swing picture! You guys have put together such a nice room for the little ones! And they are just the most beautiful babies! They have the same profile and look SO much like big brother C! Can't wait to see the slideshow! Hope you are getting enough rest and loving on those sweet babies!

  37. Great design eye - I love it! I particularly like the mix of colours, the chevron fabric and the art work (as you can see, I had difficulty picking a favourite element). I also think it's so nice that you've incorporated Elton into some of the art work. Sloane and Knox are two very lucky babies!

    ReplyDelete
  107. I absolutely love it! Way to go mommy and daddy! Also for a bow hanging tip, once Sloane has lots more. I found one of the counter top metal/iron bodice things. You know, it looks like a dress. I tired a piece of ribbon, to match the girl's bathroom, around the waste of it. Now I can click bows on the ribbon and on the metal of the bodice. It is a fun and easy way to store the bows once you get too many for the ribbon hanger :) Just thought I would share.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  142. I am blown away... the twins' nursery is beautiful!!!! I can't imagine how busy you are, so do not worry about getting back to me. But when you have a free minute, I would love to know where you got the letters hanging on their cribs. I adore them.

    ReplyDelete
  143. this nursery is gorgeous! so happy for you and your double blessings.

    ReplyDelete
  144. I can't wait to meet the little ones! :) My sister has the "I love you to the moon and back" canvas ... i ordered it from your friend! I absolutely LOVE it!

    ReplyDelete
  145. What a great nursery! I love the picture of you in the chair. And...chevorn...never knew the name of that pattern, thanks :)

    ReplyDelete
  146. I know you posted this a while ago but I couldn't believe the similarities in your nursery and the one I have planned for our twins. The walls are painted a very similar light blue with the same ceiling color even. Those are the cribs I picked out too. That is as far as I've gotten but I'll definitely be using your nursery as inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  147. Adorable. <3
    And those babies are so precious!

    ReplyDelete
  148. Do you care to share what color you ended up painting the dresser? I love it!
