The Newly Designed Feminine Nursery

I pretty much started re-designing our twins' nursery as soon as we found out their genders. I never in a million years thought we were going to have twin girls, but here I am, a mom of two beautiful little girls. Their room was not fully decorated yet so after a few weeks, I realized their nursery needed some feminine touches.

With any good design, I started planning & pulling together some inspiration. I remember seeing THIS nursery designed by Lindsay Mens Craig and thought it was so chic yet still age appropriate for babies. I didn't want anything overly juvenile that I would have to change after a few years. I loved the soft colour palette paired with classic black and white accents.

1. Pillows 2. Wall Decals 3. Cribs 4. Hooks 5. Rug 6. Change Pad 7. Faux Sheepskin Rug 8. Chair 9. Dresser 10. Ottoman

Simple styling above the twins' changing table. I love styling with their own accessories!


I found this accent table on major clearance at Homesense. Always, always check the clearance section, people!



I chose to opt out of the traditional rocker or glider that you typically see in nurseries. I figured I wanted to invest in something I could use down the line, rather than a temporary purchase. This chair from Structube was a great price and I love the high back to rest your head during those late night feeds.

Since we needed to purchase 2, we didn't want to invest in expensive cribs. We chose the Sundvik crib by Ikea as they had closed ends and converted to toddler beds down the line. The crib sheets are from SnuggleBugz and I absolutely love them! They're by Little Unicorn and get softer with each wash.


I'm sure the nursery will evolve as they get older, and I will keep adding to it along the way. For now I like the serene & minimalist vibe it has, it is a very calming room to be in.


Thanks for reading!
