Without Further Ado...

Come on in. The baby's room is done.
This is what I have been waiting on. The focal point of the room. I LOVE IT!! It needed to be reupholstered after Gunnar; he did a number on it with his acid reflux situation. Hopefully Larkin will be less acidic. ;)
My muse was cupcakes. I love them too. Ever since my visit to NYC's Magnolia Bakery with Larkin's middle name namesake, Olivia, I have had an infatuation with the sweet little cake. I thought it would be a delicious way to decorate a room. I think it turned out pretty yummy.
Her bedding isn't super descriptive, pink and white stripes and polka dots. If I did anything too frilly I think it would have taken away from the rest of room. I actually like the simplicity of her bedding.
A friend of mine has a sticker making company (If anyone is interested let me know and I will get you her information. She made the cupcake sticker (below), the Sweet Dreams, and the L. I really like those little touches. Thanks, Joy.)
All the furniture was Gunnar's. Pretty cool how it has been transformed into something feminine.
What could be more feminine than her first 20 pairs of shoes. That really is a Larkin trait, wouldn't you say Mom and Kor? ;) Sorry, J; she will love them as much as I do. The Nordstrom shoe department will be our mecca.
Even though the room is
this soon-to-be big brother enjoys hanging in there. We all do. There is something about the color pink.
He has no idea what is about to happen to his world...:)
Our house has really taken shape during the summer. The baby's room, Gunnar's room, and our room are completely furnished and almost decorated. Oh, and the backyard almost has sprinklers. I hope it has sod...before Sept. 17th. It takes time, money, and a decisive mind, but I am starting to feel much more settled. Not everything will be finished before Larkin comes but that is ok; we will keep working until we are perfectly comfortable in this home.
p.s. Jaren, thank you for everything you are doing. All the finish carpentry work and painting you have done takes my breath away everytime I walk into a different room. When I look at the maze of sprinklers from our window I am in awe of your abilities to take on projects and complete them with complete professional skill. I appreciate you and all you do for us, our family, and our home; thanks for working so hard and for being my favorite phone call of the day. Now can I have a built in? ;) I love you!! K
Hope the tour was delicious- Kam

Finally, a peek! I know this sweet room will be un lugar celestial for your family, may Larkin and all of you enjoy it fully!

Mary Ann said...

Kamee it is beautiful! Larkin is going to love it!

Julia said...

Oh, Kam....it is beautiful. I love the modern take on a girlie girl room. Fabulous work! I will have to save this away in my head for our 'someday' baby room because this is my favorite ever.

Congrats, again! Can't wait to see the girl of the hour!

Sheryl said...

Oh my, what an amazing job you have done. I can see why you would all want to gather and dream of a little Larkin soon to be, sweet as icing, and twice as pretty as those yummy cupcakes!

Michelle said...

Once again you show your impeccable taste and seemingly effortless style. I am in love with that chair. I'm going to ravage my home for something to recover!!

Natalie said...

Wow it is amazing. Your little girl is such a lucky girl. I only wish that I had your talent for decoriating. It is really beautiful.

The room looks great, and the chair would have to be my favorite part. Love the print. Nicely done.

Paige said...

Holy Cow. Larkins room is nicer than my whole house. Nice work. You really SHOULD be a stager for Pottery Barn.

Rebecca said...

Drooling, I love it! The chair is so cool. Larkin and I are going to be fast friends so I can have a slumber party in the girly room. I also love the nightstand. Is it a spin top?

*Jess* said...

I don't think I've seen a nursery as lovely as Larkin's :) You've really outdone yourself! Great job! Now I am having a hard time imaging it with baby toys strewn about, but I'm sure it will be that way soon!

Hey Kam! I've been waiting for this post as I have two little boys I was dying to see the results. What a great room. Oh, I love the wall hanging and the clever way in which you hung them. I'm sure lil' Larkin will love it. Very exciting! Congratulations once again! Can't wait to see the photos of your new little one too.

Ok, the chair sent it over the edge!!! :) LOVE it. Seriously Kam...you are SO talented!! I want to see pictures of the master too!! :)

Carri Lewis said...

It is gorgeous! I am LOVING the cupcakes! Any chance you can divulge the name and brand of the pink that you used on Larkin's walls?! I am really thinking about using it for my daughter's walls in our new house! Now I'm dying to see the rest of the house! You are a great decorator!

Rhiannon said...

I'm still voting for Tate! But just won't call her that to her face ;)

Room looks great! Now lets see that BABY BELLY!

Liz said...

Wow! Everything is lovely. You have a beautiful eye for design. I too am in LOVE with that chair! Just three more weeks until she'll be sitting in it with you...

Tonya said...

Perfect Kam! I love every detail.
I was shopping in the children's shoe section at Nordstrom yesterday. Paige was in heaven. I just kept thinking of you. I even pulled out my camera. I'll have to post some pictures.

Jodie said...

GORGEOUS! I love it. Your husband did all that? Can he come to my house?

The Lauper Family said...

Kamee! I LOVE this room! I LOVE...LOVE! You know I'm baby hungry for a little "pink cupcake" of my own. So so fun. I miss you!
