Emerson Jane’s Minimal Midcentury-Inspired Rainbow Nursery

This is a really surreal blog post to be putting together, but I’m so excited to finally be doing this. If you’ve followed along at all on social media, you may have read about John and I’s first pregnancy that ended in a miscarriage at the beginning of 2019. It was such a difficult time for us, but made the joy of learning we were expecting again that much stronger. Being pregnant with a “rainbow baby” is tough. There is so much thankfulness and gratefulness, but there’s also a matched amount of fear and nervousness, especially in early pregnancy. When it came time for me to start envisioning our sweet baby girl’s nursery, I knew I wanted to reflect the idea of her as our rainbow… but not in an over-the-top way because while I connect with the idea of what a rainbow baby is, I also want to honor Emerson as her own little person. 

Little by little, my vision began to come to life. I wanted a nursery that looked and felt like it was for a baby, a child, a little girl, because while I love the clean, modern aesthetic of a lot of nurseries on Pinterest, I wanted that to be met with an element of *FUN*! What has resulted is a nursery that definitely reflects John and I’s love of simple, mid-century design merged with pops of fun rainbow colors. This has been a total labor of love… we actually refinished the hutch- it was originally a dark brown wood, and we knew we definitely needed something brighter for our girl’s room. I’m pretty obsessed with how this little space turned out, and while it will be a while before she’s sleeping in her own room, we can’t wait to use this space for tummy time and baby hangs!
