Beau Lifestyle´s Nursery Revealing

Finally I can reveal Matteo´s nursery, after many ´to do´ things were done, thanks to the grandparents. It´s a mix of vintage finds, some new things, DIY projects and Ikea. I wanted to create a room that I am confortable in too. 15 more days untill my due date, I have the feeling Matteo wants to come a bit earlier, so today I have packed my hospital bag and took pictures of the Nursery.
I am so in love with the vintage faux bamboo chandeliers that I won on Ebay, I have got them rewired and painted them, so they are as good as new again.

The XL changing station, with everything in reach. The hat and sleeping bag are handmade gifts.

The curtains with the ribbon that my mom DIY-ed, I am so happy how it looks.

The Leander crib with the animal prints. The owl is handmade by my mom who used the same fabric as I used to upholstered the little chair.

I would love to have a little library with childrenbooks, so now I started collection them.

The wonderfull O´verlays, that give the 2 little closets an instant wow factor and you can´t really tell the mess behind them.
another love of the nursery is the vintage parrot lamp I purchased on Etsy. Other Etsy purchases is the vintage tea cup with the gold M monogram and the peepee teepees (fabric cones) so Matteo doesn´t pee on me when changing his diapers.

My love, the nursery is just perfect! I tear up a little bit when looking through the photos and imagining your perfect little boy who will live there soon! I LOVE the chair print (shocking, I know haha) and all the precious little details. There is so much love in that room already. I can't wait to meet the little man. Love to Mr. Beau. xoxoxoxo
