Little Olive's nursery is a delightful mix of old and new, with many sweet handmade and personal details. Olive's mom, Laura Kackley of lark photography, started planning as soon as she knew a baby girl was on the way. With a home that is mostly gender-neutral, Laura was excited to finally have an opportunity to delve into the feminine side with her little girls room. The soft gray walls are the perfect backdrop for the white furniture and decor with happy pops of yellow, pink, peach, and mint. We are so charmed by the finished space! For more details about the planning process, read on for some info from Laura:

"I could not have done it without the help of my incredible sister and friends who custom made just about all the linens in the room and my husband who helped me paint. I promise you besides the crib just about everything in the room was painted or made. I used old frames from the antique shop my mom owned when I was a little girl, fabric and colors from my bedding as a baby, and many special gifts from loved ones. My mother-in-law made the quilt from scraps of quilts that were passed down in the family and had started to fall apart. The sweet little dress above the dresser was a find that my grandmother had been holding onto for years to give to the right little girl. My dear friend over at www.thelovelycupboard.com made my ribbon banner and another friend from www.lindsayletters.com made the pretty letters for me to paint in the yellow frame. In addition, she gifted me with the sister hot air balloon print that matches the one from her daughter’s room. I think my favorite find was the old palm olive ad. The top says “growing lovelier day by day”...I could not agree more!"

I love how it turned out! Do you happen to know what size the wire bins are that are used as storage above the changing table? The Container store has several sizes. THANK YOU!

Hi. I love what you did with the nursery! Can you let me know exactly where to find the wire baskets you used? I am looking at the container store website, but I can't seem to find the exact ones.

Also, did you hang your scale from the ceiling or from an L bracket on the wall?

Thanks for the info. :)
