Our New Home: Jaye’s Room

Jaye’s room was the biggest priority for me when we first moved in. I had it unpacked and everything hung up within a day or so. I really wanted her to feel at home. And it really seemed to help. When we first moved she was so clingy, but seemed the most comfortable in her room. 

Jaye’s furniture stayed the same, but now it’s all in the same room. The rocking chair and side table, used to be upstairs near her port-a-crib where she slept at night. The changing table was in the hallway. The orange rug was our living room rug, but since it’s too smal for our new living room, I put it in Jaye’s room, and I think it looks perfect. I’d always planned on orange being a major color in her room, but in her Nokomis nursery, it didn’t really end up that way.

I haven’t hung the yarn ball mobileover her crib yet, because I’d taken it apart to pack it by cutting the fishing lineand haven’t put it back together yet.

There are still a few spots I want to fill in Jaye’s gallery wall. I’m waiting for a few small frames to be unearthed from a box somewhere. I’m still in love with her library cart, of course.
Finally, this wall is the least finished. I’m envisioning a real dresser that will last her throughout her childhood, perhaps with some big DIY starburst mirror above it.


  1. So cute! I think it’s a great little girl space, but it has enough basics that as she grows you will be able to update it easily and cheaply! 🙂

  2. I love the large Window. Perfect for a little girl room. It is really pretty. I am so glad you did that. It has to make jaye feel more secure. And the colors rock!

  3. Cute crib and rocker! I love rocking my babies 🙂

  4. I love this nursery, it’s so cute!
