One Room Challenge Week Three: Nursery Makeover

It is Week Three of the Calling it Home One Room ChallengeIf you are just tuning in, you can visit my Week One here and Week Two here.  This week I have been busy checking off items on my shopping list, including linens for the nursery. There is currently a queen size bed in the room, which we are keeping, and I have been looking for the perfect bedding that will eventually transition into a big boy room. Of course, I am obsessed with Leontine Linens but I cannot justify the expense for a baby boy's room. So I was on a mission to create an inspired look on a budget...

I am a longtime fan of Jill Sorensen. She is such a talented decorator, and I love her Jill Sorensen Lifestyle line of reasonably priced linens, including the "key" bedding, pictured below. I selected the duvet and European shams in navy, and I think they will be perfect!




I was also on the hunt for beautiful monogrammed pillows, and I was thrilled to find Michele's exquisite Etsy shop, calicodaisy, thanks to Tina at The Enchanted Home. Michelle's hand sewn appliques are just stunning, and she is such a delight to work with! Michelle is monogramming pillows, crib sheets, a shower curtain, and hand towels for our nursery, and I absolutely cannot wait to receive them! Here is a sampling of some of her work...

Above is the monogram I selected!







Click here to visit Michele at calicodaisy. Next week, I will review the art I have selected for the nursery, and hopefully I will have a few more sneak peeks of my progress in the room! Don't forget to check out the other ORC linking participants, and the ORC participants who posted yesterday

  6. Andrea, I just love the Greek Key blue bedding and monogram pillow you picked out! You're sweet boy is going to have the best room! I am glad I wasn't the only that kept the queen size bed in our daughter's nursery until just recently when we moved it into our 3 1/2 year olds room for her big girl bed.
