FINALLY!  Designing + creating Linen’s nursery was such a labor of love and I truly poured my heart into it.  I wanted each and every piece to be thoughtful and intentional so I curated a space that was just that.  From the moment we knew we were having a girl, I knew I wanted a French Garden themed nursery for her.  A neutral, feminine and functional space that we would enjoy spending time in.  I wanted linen (the fabric) to be a consistent theme throughout, as well as a mix of vintage + new pieces that would give her room character, like the rest of our home.  We started with this beautiful, vintage cabinet that was passed down to us from John’s grandmother and built the space around it.  From the moment we placed that piece in her room, I envisioned it full of cozy, neutral linens and vintage baskets categorizing her sweet accessories.  The sentiment and design of the French antique inspired the entire space and it came together so perfectly.  Everything from the cane detail on the crib + changing table and the layered rugs to the moody, floral art and cozy lamp light – I wanted it to be a space she would feel inspired by and safe in.

I assumed I would finish the nursery before Linen arrived, but in true J + Meg fashion, we kept thinking it wasn’t quite complete.  We added a few final details, like the hat I wore in our maternity photos and styling a few shelves, and finally felt like the room came together perfectly.  About that time, Linen arrived and the room quickly became full of dirty laundry, a full diaper pail, and disorganized chaos, so it took me the full 8 weeks to finally be able to share this space with you!!  Whether it’s the middle of the night or first thing in the morning as the light pours in – I look around this room and it feels so special.  The vintage pieces that have so much meaning because of what they are and who they’re from, the cozy textures that go from floor to ceiling, and the functionality gives this space such life.

It’s a room we’ve prayed over endlessly, poured out heart + souls into creating, and now, welcomed our little one into.  Such a perfect extension of our home and definitely a space Linen can grow into for years to come!

If there’s anything I didn’t link or any questions you have, feel free to ask below!  Thanks so much for stopping by, XX.

Love this space! I forget what you ended up using at the final olive paint color for the ceiling? It’s perfect.

love it!! I had a bébé girl around the same time as Linen and felt similarly about creating her space! I love where you ended up and it really is so beautiful .. however .. WHERE do you keep her clothes? All of the little Knick knack stuff that bebes need (I was so shocked that even trying to be minimalist, how much we have!)? Where is your diaper pail! Haha!

Wanna say something…Thank you so much!! Congrats on your little one, too! She has a little closet in her nursery where we keep all of her clothes and a lot of the smaller items she needs on a daily basis. It’s a decent size thankfully!!

Hi there! I am pregnant and determined to design a chic nursery without too much baby gear lying around, similar to this gorgeous space! Wondering if you might consider doing a post on how you are managing that in the nursery and around your home at some point in the future once you figure out what works for you? We have a historic home with limited storage and I am terrified it’s going to become overrun, so looking for any tips on how to contain the madness and keep my space as beautiful and serene as it is pre-baby (also to help keep my clean freak husband sane and happy ☺️).
