What’s better than an adorable nursery? An adorable nursery for twin little boys, of course! Tiny Kyle & Jack are the lucky little guys who get to co-habitat in this incredible little space. Designed by their sweet mother, alongside her dear friend & designers‘ help, I can’t imagine a more soothing place for two sweet, tiny men to grow. Captured by the talented Gracie Blue, there’s lots more where this came from right here in the gallery.
From the parents… On mother’s day 2012 we were surprised and excited to find out I was pregnant! My husband and I thought we would start trying on our anniversary trip that June in the Amalfi coast. Instead, a week before we left we were, once again, surprised and excited to learn that we were expecting twins! While in Italy, the Italians often said “prego” for “your welcome” or “after you” and my husband would joke with me that they were talking to me and knew I was pregnant (at 10 weeks).
When it came to the nursery, I had so many ideas. I knew I wanted it to be perfect for them when they arrived so I consulted with my good friend and designer, Kathlee of Kathlee Kohl Interiors. She told me I had the rest of the boys lives to decorate the room how they would want it, that I should take this opportunity to create something for me. As a new mom of twins, we went for a calm, peaceful, and soothing environment. I adored RH Baby & Child’s catalog and specifically fell in love with their color cloud blue. I decided on the furniture first, RH Baby & Child’s Jameson line. I loved the timeless antique natural wood and it felt masculine. The cloud blue looked so nice against this wood color, we decided to paint both the walls and the ceiling! I ordered a sample from RH and had my local Sherwin Williams store color match. To balance the blue, we added neutrals in white, cream, and grey. The bedding search proved to be tough as I had a very specific idea in mind. I ended up finding Elizabeth Allen Atelier fabric and had the crib skirt and pillow made with linen trim. I ordered the crib sheets and changing pad cover from Polka Dot Peacock. I was after simple and classic curtains, so I opted to have them made as well in white linen with grey linen trim.
Admiring the cozy feeding corner in other nurseries online, I laid a sheepskin rug below a grey reclining glider from Little Castle. The ottoman is a knit pouf from Land of Nod. I found the lamp base and shade at Home Goods and had it covered with birch bark. I knew I wanted to use an animal in the nursery and settled on the giraffe because our family has height and we expect the boys will be tall. From there, I finished by adding a few other touches using objects that simply made me happy.
The most memorable thing about our newborn session is not a single moment but the session itself – Gracie’s kindness, endurance, and patience with not 1 but 2 newborns was unmatched!! Seeing the reward of her efforts as it all came together was amazing. My heart swelled with love as I looked at our boys posed peacefully asleep side by side. Our boys are only this little once, and we are blessed to have such beautiful images from Gracie to remember and cherish.
