Our Updated Shared Kids Room

 

 

Our Updated Shared Kids RoomPlanning to add a wall mural to the wall, but we had to wait 30 days for the paint to dry before doing so.

I’m so excited to be able to share our updated nursery/toddler room. I’m not going to lie, I wasn’t exactly sure how it would all come together, but I am truly so happy with the outcome. It actually came out better than I imagined in my head. We were incredibly lucky to work with Amazon Home on the shared kids room and it’s no surprise, that almost everything came from Amazon. Their selection, as always, was incredibly vast and the hardest part was choosing what pieces we would end up going with. I also discovered Amazon Home’s mid-century modern brand Rivet, which has some really fantastic patterns, as you’ll see in a few of the pieces below.

Babyletto Scoot 3-in-1 Convertible Crib:

Because this room was going from Nate’s solo room to a joint baby/toddler room, we needed a crib that was a bit smaller. Our previous crib was fairly large, and in order to not overwhelm the space, we went with this beautiful option from Babyletto. I love the wood and white detailing as well as the warmth that it adds to the space. Hanging from the crib is this beautiful, 100% handmade ‘Dream of a Little Dream’ mobile from Pehr.

Babyletto Gelato Changing Dresser:

Our previous changing table was massive and while it worked in Nate’s solo room, it was far too large for the updates we were planning to make. This changing table is from the same collection as the crib and it’s the perfect size and compliment to the room. I’m also not normally one for a matchy/matchy situation, but in this case, I love how the two pieces look side-by-side. I’m a big fan of Babyletto products and how the products add a touch of warmth to the room, while still looking fresh and modern.

nuLOOM Sheepskin Shag Rug layered on top of a Rivet Geometric Wool Rug:

I’ve found that layering rugs is one of the easiest ways to create warmth. It also adds an element of plushness to the room. While I love the geometric rug on its own, adding the sheepskin rug added a little whimsy and child-like feel (and comfort) to the room.

Nouella Changing Basket:

As soon as I saw this little changing basket, I knew I wanted it over a standard changing pad. It’s beautiful, and made incredibly well and just adds the sweetest little touch to the room.

Broyhill Twin Trundle Bed with Drawers:

Nate’s first big boy bed! We opted to go straight to a twin bed. It’s something he’ll use for years to come, rather than a toddler bed which is pretty short lived.  I picked this one because not only does it have three extra drawers, which is always a plus, but it’s also has a trundle option, something we knew we wanted. To make the transition from a crib to a bed relatively seamless, I added these Milliard bed bumpers and they’ve been great!

Ubabub Acrylic Bookshelves:

Dare I say that this wall of shelves is possibly my favorite part of the room?! Aesthetically pleasing and both functional and stylistic. Again, because the room went from being Nate’s solo room to a joint room, it was important to be able to utilize the space in creative ways. The shelves allow us to display some of our favorite books, while still maintaining a light and airy feel to the room. The key was to use more vertical, wall space and less floor space!

Our Updated Shared Kids RoomNursery Works Sleepytime Rocker:

In the previous nursery, I never actually had a rocker. I ended up using a big chair, which was fine, but I didn’t realize how much I was missing out. The design of this one – mixing functionality and the combination of a beautiful soft grey with wooden details – is what made me love it. I’ll even say, it’s even more beautiful and comfortable in person.

Signature Design by Ashley Poof & Rivet Modern Hand-Woven Throw:

I paired the rocker with this throw and this poof, which adds such a nice natural texture to the room.

Sputnik Chandelier Light Fixture

Sputnik Chandelier Light Fixture:

Initially, I considered a different light fixture, but it was a bit more rustic and we felt the room needed a bit of a modern touch. This one looks much more expensive than it actually is. In addition, it brings so much light to the room (due to the 10 exposed bulbs). We paired it with these dimmable edison bulbs.

So, there you have our breakdown. Luckily for us, since time was of the essence, almost everything was delivered via Amazon Prime – even the larger pieces. I mean, as a parent, is there anything better than Prime’s fast, free delivery?? I don’t think so.

Helpful Amazon Shopping Features: 

I also wanted to share two really helpful features that Amazon Home offers:

View in Room: 

View in Room is a helpful feature that lets you visualize products in your space by using your smartphone camera. You can access via two points:

1) camera icon on the Amazon mobile app and;

2) from a product page on the mobile app by clicking the link, “View in Room.” This features helps solve the following needs:

  • I need to know how this will fit in my space and measurements only get me so far. I want to envision how it looks relative to other pieces in my room.
  • Will it match the existing color, style, or décor?
  • I may need something to freshen up my space – show me the possibilities!

Discover Your Style:

Discover Your Style: is a visual way to shop that lets you see more of the looks you like by simply clicking ‘Like’ (thumbs up) or ‘Dislike’ (thumbs down) for instant tailored recommendations.

Hope you found this post helpful! Sasha is currently in our room and will probably be there for the next few months, but I love knowing she has a beautiful room waiting for her that all of us get to enjoy!

Thank you to Amazon Home for teaming up on this post!

Thank you to Larisa of Soeur Interiors for helping us figure out spacing and final details!

    Love the shelves so much but seem so pricey for plain clear shelves. Anything similar on Amazon you would recommend?

  • Rym

    The room looks amazing! Does the changing table linked on your post differ from the one you bought?

    • Helena

    The room looks beautiful! Can you please share your room dimensions? I am trying to design a shared space as well!

    Great post, love what you did with your space. But If i can offer one critique. As I read, it doesn’t sound like your “voice”. Your choice of words and the way you describe each item seems out of your character. I just feel like the writing isn’t “you”. but if I’m wrong, please forgive me.

  • ABby

    Love the room! We recently bought the same crib and was wondering what mattress you used for it?? Yours looks like a perfect fit!

    • Helena

      Hi! We have the Nook Mattress for both the crib and toddler bed. We love it!
