How did you decide on your sweet baby girl's name – Finley Rose?
We knew early on that we wanted to have the middle name of our little girl be Rose, after my grandmother Rosemary and my husband's mom Marie Rosetta. As my husband and I were discussing first names, a blogger I follow, wrote an amazing blog about adopting a beautiful little girl with cerebral palsy who's name is Finley. I've always liked the name Finley, but it wasn't until I read that blog that I learned that Finley means warrior.
I come from a family of very strong, independent, successful women – I want my daughter to carry on that tradition and so learning that Finley means warrior the name just felt right. I presented the name Finley Rose to my husband, who had shot down every other name I had suggested in the past, and without hesitation he said “yes that's it, that's our little girl's name”.
Where did you get your inspiration for the nursery?
Within days of finding out I was pregnant, I came across the Jolie wallpaper on Pinterest and fell head over heels in love with the print. Once we found out that we were having a girl, that print became the inspiration behind the nursery's design. It was the perfect combination of whimsical and feminine.
The room that we had decided to turn into the nursery is fairly small, so I needed to keep the design light and airy in hopes of making the space feel larger than it actually is. I knew we would be spending a lot of time in that room once our little girl arrived, so I wanted to have a space that was super comfortable and inviting and have lots of different textures and materials throughout.
