Featured Nursery of the Month: Sahara

Newborns, Photography

Sahara’s newborn session was one of my sweetest sessions to date.

Her Boho Chic inspired nursery with pops of pinks and plants for pops of greenery (you know I was obsessed) was the perfect backdrop for her newborn session.

Kinzly, her big sister, welcomed me into her home. It’s perfectly clear that she was meant to be a big sister and both Sahara and their brother, Brexton, are so blessed to have her!

What is your nursery’s theme?

The theme for Sahara’s nursery was BoHo Chic. I wanted to focus on white with a blend of natural accents and touches of pink.

What was the inspiration for your nursery design?

The inspiration for Sahara’s nursery was the new macrame trend and the beautiful changing basket.

Did you utilize help from any professional designers?

I did not hire a professional designer. Some of my inspiration came from Pinterest.

Did you have a particular budget in mind for your nursery?

I did not have a specific budget in mind, but I was trying to remain as budget friendly as possible.

On which items did you splurge vs. save?

I splurged on the functional items like the crib, crib mattress, baby monitor. I tried to save on design details.

Did you experience any challenge with your nursery design?

My biggest challenge was… the curtains! I probably ordered six different sets of curtains until I found the right pair for the room. I wanted something that would complement the pink color in the rug without being too overpowering for our small space.

Is there anything else you’d like to share about your nursery?

The macrame wall hanging above the crib was actually a DIY. I went to Hobby Lobby and purchased a wood stick, yarn, flowers and got to work. It cost about $60 total. I found some beautiful wall hangings on Etsy but they were several hundred dollars and much smaller so that is what inspired me to try to make my own.
