I knew I needed a great light in this room, but moreso I needed a light that would reflect the style that I was going for in this room: playful, gender-neutral, but modern. Something that could grow with the baby as she gets older.
Back in February, I came across this amazing light on the West Elm site (it's no longer available online, so I can't give you the link). I instantly fell in love and knew that it was perfect for the space. So, I added it to my design board, and built the room around it. In March, I noticed that it was on back order until July. I had no choice to order it then for fear of not having the light installed before the baby was here.
And here she is - hanging in all her glory...
We also decided to install a dimmer for those times where we'll be in the nursery in the middle of the night - a bright light is less than ideal.
Stay tuned next week when I reveal the completed nursery! (But until then, you can read more about the nursery here, here, and here.
