Nursery Tour with Kennedy Escobar

We're excited to share another gorgeous nursery tour, designed by a talented mama of two, Kennedy Escobar. This space features a stunning pattern and colour combination and a seriously gorgeous DIY dresser makeover. Read on to find out more about Kennedy and how she created this dreamy nursery for sweet baby Palmer.

Hi there! I am Kennedy. I am a momma to two beautiful kids, Luca who is 2 years old and Palmer who is freshly 2 months old. Being able to be a momma to a boy and a girl has always been my dream. I get the best of both worlds and I am oh so blessed. 

My husband and I decided that Palmer would be our last baby and with the ending of this chapter of our lives it was so important to make this last nursery so beautiful. Interior decor is my absolute favorite thing to shop for and create beautiful spaces with. 
Nursery with a black, white and coral peach color scheme including a rattan light fixture.

For Palmer’s room, we went with neutral colors and boho theme with a hint of a beautiful pink colour. The colour is called New Haven Rose by Valspar and when I saw it I just knew we had to paint her board and batten wall with this colour. 

Board and batten walls are one of our favourite projects to do in the house and they’re actually pretty easy. We have one in our living room, Palmer’s room and we are going to redo our son’s room featuring one as well. It’s just a beautiful way to add a statement in any room. If you're interested, click here for my complete list of materials & instructions.

When creating a space for our children like a nursery, my husband and I always make sure we put a special piece in their rooms that we have repurposed or even made ourselves to make it extra special. You only create their nurseries once in your life. 

With Palmer’s nursery, the dresser that is in the picture was repurposed. We got it from Facebook market for $35 and redid the whole entire thing. My husband sanded it down, primed it and then painted it white. It was a hideous brown colour and looked an absolute mess. After painting it white we found the perfect gold drawer pulls on Amazon, and the dresser came out beautifully. It’s definitely now one of our fav pieces in the house; and was such a special thing to do for our daughter as that piece can now go from her nursery into her toddler room and then into her big girl room in the future. Definitely a transitional piece!

I hope y’all enjoyed hearing about our sweet girl’s nursery and if you DIY a dresser or build a board and batten wall tell me or tag @nest.in.the.city in the pictures. I’d love to see them.
