When I was first dreaming up Adalie’s nursery, I really wanted to create a relaxing and feminine space for her. I picked some of my favorite colors Aqua, Grey, Yellow & Metallic Gold to start with. The penguin theme came into play because originally we were going to spell Adalie’s name with an e like “Adelie” which is also a type of penguin. We recently changed the way we will spell her name because we know people would mispronounce the name. (Add-uh-lee) is how we will pronounce it. The meaning of Adalie is “God is my refuge; noble one”, so it’s pretty perfect for our baby girl.
I started with a collection of vintage, thrifted gold mirrors I had been storing. I didn’t know why I was collecting them, but now I’m glad I did. I added a crib with chevron and clean lines to make the nursery more modern in contrast to the vintage mirrors. I think the mix of modern and vintage came together really well in her room and created a perfect balance. To keep my mind off the wait in my last few weeks of pregnancy, I have worked on a lot of DIY crafts for her room. The ribbon mobile and love pillow were both things I wanted to buy on Etsy and ended up making myself instead. I can’t wait to bring Adalie home and spend a lot of time with her in this nursery!
