Laming wanted to craft the perfect nursery for Oliver, who just turned one in September. He needs a space that will provide comfort, and grow with him over time. This Summer we launched our Baby collection in collaboration with Burt’s Bees Baby to bring the best for every child. We can’t wait to show you the nursery!
We helped Houston-based blogger Leanna Laming refresh the nursery of her youngest child, Oliver. Creating a nursery is an exciting part of preparing for a baby! With a lot of questions to answer and decisions to make, we were so happy to work with Laming on this space.
A Room to Grow Into
During their first years, your baby is constantly growing. Buying pieces that can grow and change with your child is a great way to make the most of your nursery purchase.
For Oliver’s space, Laming chose pieces, like the crib, that would transition with him once he becomes a toddler and starts reaching milestones like crawling and walking. Remove the front panel and the crib can easily be converted to a toddler bed!
Lamming decided to pair a removable changing top with a minimal dresser. When she no longer needs it, the changing top can be removed but the dresser remains functional! The piece can stay in Oliver’s room even after his footie pajamas become skinny jeans.
The rocking chair that soothes Oliver to sleep can stay in the space and serve as a cozy seating area when reading or doing homework. As for the color scheme, Lamming chose a neutral gray to keep the nursery minimal and functional through Oliver’s life.
All Smiles in this Comfy Crib!
The average newborn can sleep up to 17 hours a day, according to the National Sleep Foundation. It’s paramount that you invest in a comfy mattress for your child, and one that will last.
Lamming chose a Serta mattress with layers of foam and a stabilized perimeter for the baby’s comfort and support. The mattress also has a laminated cover to protect your baby from spills and messes so it can last for years.
We are so excited to watch Oliver grow and love his nursery! You can check out Laming’s Instagram to follow along in the adventures of Oliver and the rest of the family!
