Our most recent house project was turning the loft area upstairs between one of the kid’s rooms and their bathroom into a nursery space for Sage. Initially, we were going to expand the room and make it a little bigger and more functional, but after having some contractors come out, we found out the wall we were going to tear down is a load-barring wall. This doubled the cost, which wasn’t worth it to us since it would still be a pretty small space.
We decided to close off the wall and add a pocket door, and it’s like the wall has always been there! Closing off the room and adding the door really created a perfect space for a nursery. It’s very small, but really cozy and we were able to fit everything she’ll need in there for the next couple of years. We purchased a mini crib and sold our IKEA crib we had used with our other two. Doing this bought us more space in the room.
When deciding how we wanted to decorate her sweet little room, we included Peyton in our planning and she came up with the idea of rainbows. Peyton’s choice of “theme” is actually really sweet and meaningful because Sage has been like our little rainbow in the midst of everything going on in the world right now, and we are so grateful we were able to bring her home safe and healthy.
So, we took Peyton’s rainbow idea and decided on neutral and mauve tones. It’s really such a sweet space and we’re so happy she will have her own her first year or two in our home.
