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!
It is gorgeous, Andi! So airy, bright, and spacious with lots of tactile things for him to look at now and touch later. 🙂
Thank you!!! Of course, we still have more things that we want to add to it, but for now it’s perfect. And yes, the light is amazing in the room!
I love SO many (if not all) elements of this! Being in a bilingual relationship myself, there are so many extra goodies that make your relationship and your new baby so special. Enjoy!!
Thank you sweetheart, what a lovely thing to say!!!
It’s beautiful! I love the color scheme and, obviously, the travel theme. Besides, it’s so relaxing!
Thank you so much! I love the way it looks, but above all, I love the way it feels — just like you said it is so relaxing and I love that my son is surrounded by good energy in his room. 🙂
Andi, the room is beautiful, but I wouldn’t expect anything else 🙂 So bright and the two of you!
Awww thank you so very, very much!!! XO

I am in love with this nursery!!!!!!! The flag idea is so great, and the colors of the Argentine flag are perfect for it.
Yay yay yay! I’m so glad you loved the nursery! The flag idea came to me in a dream.
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 🙂
Hahaha I love that you are in love and want the room for yourself! Elephants are the best!!! I have been collecting them for at least a decade now. 🙂
This is such a gorgeous room, and what’s more is it is serene and relaxing! Perfect for baby time.
Thank you darling!!! I feel like it is so perfect for Joaquín. 🙂
Seriously the cutest nursery I have ever seen!!!!!
