Lily's Nursery

This is a continuation from Tuesday's post and is once again all about baby Lily, the most popular little girl not yet born. I stopped by Kim and Dave's place last night to put the finishing touches on Lily's new painting and I got to see her amazingly chic nursery (which any little girl would LOVE). I kind of wanted it to be my new room! It was equal parts sweet and elegant. From mirrored dressers and custom art to plush rugs and luxe linens, this little girl has the nursery of dreams. Take a look.
Dave is such a devoted dad-to-be and is so excited for his little girl to get here. He took me on a tour of the house, of course saving the best for last: Lily's room. He took time to show me all the details, including their new glider, Lily's impressive wardrobe (the girl has more clothes than I do) and his favorite stuffed animal, a peek-a-boo bear from his mom.
Kim has done such an incredible job pulling this room together, and she actually did a lot of the work herself -- with the help of her sister -- to save some dough, which I love. She made all of these purple clusters hanging above Lily's crib, some from tulle, some from streamers, and some from cupcake tins! So creative and cute. She also made Lily this canvas with her name on it, using broken mirrors from old cosmetic cases, adhered to silver ribbon.
The mirrored dresser/changing table and nightstand/side table are from Pier One, but Kim got a discount by taking the floor model that had the slightest ding on it. I love, love these and think they are such amazing pieces for a room of this size. They reflect light making the room look larger, and they will be something Lily will have forever. Is it possible to be jealous of an unborn baby? If so, I am. I want these really bad.
Lily's bedding adds another homemade touch as her pillows and blankets were made by her aunt. Isn't the elephant fabric the cutest ever?
It was a real pleasure getting to see this little one's nursery, and I can't wait until I get to have a cute little face to put to the name in less than a month! Thanks to Kim and Dave for allowing me to share Lily's space on my blog. If you guys have a space you think my readers would enjoy seeing, I would love to feature it on the blog, send me an email at Also, don't forget to follow Trimmed and Tailored on facebook @Trimmed & Tailored, and on twitter @trimandtailored.

Have a great holiday weekend everyone!
