Please Note:

From 2011-2016, we had an inspiration blog featuring nurseries, baby showers, parties, and portraits that were submitted to us by photographers, designers, and parents. We no longer accept submissions or post new blog content, but we have left the archive here for those who have saved this content, or for new readers looking for inspiration.

Swayze's Gray and Fuchsia Nursery

Baby Swayze's gray and fuchsia nursery was the anticipated project of the year in her household. Her mom and grandparents all had a part in making this space extra special. Her mom designed the custom art piece, while her grandfather then hand painted it onto a piece of Masonite board. Her grandmother created the lovely bedding. Underneath the chalkboard is their most cherished detail of the nursery: Swayze's 8 Pearls of Wisdom. The 8 pearls are Love, Kindness, Obedience, Thankfulness, Humility, Wisdom, Purity and Truth, representing the values they will teach her throughout her life. To see all the photos from this space, stop by the full gallery.
