Joaquín’s Nursery

February 15, 2015

I never imagined my son would be born a month early, which is why Joaquín’s nursery was almost not ready for his unexpected arrival. The weekend before I went on bedrest, I intuitively knew that I was getting sick and I had a strong feeling that we had to finish it immediately. My friend, Julie, whom was responsible for my amazing wedding in Buenos Aires, flew from New York City to help my husband, Lucas, and I with his room and to attend the baby shower. I told her my vision and in three days she created the nursery of our dreams.

We wanted the nursery to reflect both Lucas and I equally, thus there is a strong travel theme (for me) with elements of Argentina and soccer (for my husband). The colors are shades of white, gold, and blue. The first thing that was done was the accent wall. Instead of going to the beach with my family and I, Lucas spent his entire Thanksgiving break painting it to look like the Argentinean flag. Once that was completed, Julie stepped in a couple of weeks later to work her magic and add her special touch. The furniture was bought at Buy Buy Baby, Homegoods, Ikea, and Marshalls. The smaller items were purchased all over the world both before and after I got pregnant. I love that behind almost everything in Joaquin’s room there is an endearing story for me to share with him. His nursery is perfect in our eyes, just like him!

    I know this is for a little precious baby, but I want to make my bedroom look like this 🙂 I am in love 🙂

    I love the elephants, I buy handmade elephants where ever I go for my mom as they are her favorite, so they always make me smile 🙂

    This might be one of the most beautiful nurseries I’ve ever seen. Love the accent wall and love even more that it’s the Argentinean flag!
