Sweet Dreams, Ella Mae • Nursery Reveal

Ella Mae Richardson will be making her grand debut in less than a month!  We can hardly wait to be grandparents!  And you, our readers, have walked through so much of this with us…the nursery ideas, deciding on a grandmother name, and her baby shower! We often talk about what she will look like, how much she will weigh, and how much we will love everything about her!

There are still a few weeks left until we get to lay eyes on her, but we are more than ready!  And that includes the nursery that we are sharing with you today!  We have been busy putting together the perfect room for our sweet granddaughter…Ella Mae, we are ready when you are!

There is no doubt that, in our eyes, she will sparkle wherever she goes!

“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭139:13-16‬ ‭

Just like our sweet granddaughter will be, the nursery is one-of-a-kind.  Allison found a website that did custom bedding, and she loved the coral and teal floral fabric…it became the inspiration for the nursery!

Every nursery needs a comfy chair…this one glides and swivels.  An added bonus is the gliding ottoman…I can imagine that many hours will be spent here!

Coral and teal chevron for the inside of the bumper pads and really soft, white minky chenille for the outside of the pads and one side of the crib blanket!

Window treatment fabric is also the coral and teal chevron!


Snuggles, Seth’s childhood teddy bear, made an appearance in Ella Mae’s room!

The side table was black, but add a little chalk paint…and voila – a cute piece for Ella Mae’s room.  Some of the books and headbands from the Baby Shower fill the bottom shelf!

I replaced the builder’s light fixture with this gold and crystal lantern appropriate for a “little princess”!

The “Bible in Pictures For Little Eyes” book is from Seth’s childhood collection!  I cannot wait for her to hear and know all about our Lord, Jesus Christ!  May her life always honor Him!

Seth enjoys all things outdoors…so we added a couple of features just for him!  Maybe Daddy’s girl will venture out into the woods with him (wearing pink camo and a matching bow, of course!)

The chest of drawers is a holdover from Seth’s college days.  It has a new look after Allison and Katy gave it a make-over!


This book has special meaning…a story for later!

The changing table is ready for our baby girl!

A lot of love went into this room just for you, Ella Mae.  We know this room will bring many hugs, kisses, cuddles, and play times into your little life.  You are already so loved, baby girl!

  1. Pam, what gorgeous color scheme chosen for Ella Mae’s nursery! When I saw those chevron bumper pads, I thought immediately how wonderful the graphic design would be for the baby before she fully distinguishes color in her development! That chair and ottoman are perfect! Love the sentimental touches of your son’s early years.

  2. Kim says:

    As I knew it would be, Ella Mae’s room is perfection – in beauty, comfort, and design. The colors are so fun and fresh. I think Sparkle and Snuggles will be wonderful room mates!

  3. Lynn says:

    Pam, the nursery is absolutely gorgeous, I love the colors, so girlie. And I love the name Ella Mae!!! Cant wait to see her, and I know how excited you all are for her arrival. I just can’t explain the love between a grandmother and her grandchildren, but you are about to experience it!!! love and hugs

    • Everyday Living says:

      Lynn, thanks so much for your sweet words! We are beyond excited to welcome Ella Mae’s arrival! I knew you would love the name! The name Ella, Allison loved! The name Mae is from her grandmother, Butch’s grandmother, and in recognition of my sweet aunt and your Beloved Mother! And today is her birthday, I know you miss her and your daily phone calls! Love you so much!

  4. rfloydcvicurn says:

    Just beautiful! Love those books! Have them at our house! I don’t think the Mommas understand just how much the Grandmas feel a part of having a new Grandbaby. So happy you are getting to enjoy baby Ella Mae.

    • Everyday Living says:

      Thanks so much for your sweet words! I can’t wait for her arrival and to spend time reading those books to her!

  5. What a beautiful nursery! Each piece planned to perfection. She is a blessed little girl loved already by her maker and her parents and grandparents. God’s plan is perfect.
    Happy for you.

    • Everyday Living says:

      Bonnie, thanks for such sweet comments! Ella Mae is already so loved…but you are right, she is perfectly loved by her Maker! Happy Tuesday!

    Qué alegría la espera del nacimiento de Ella Mae… Los nietos son la mayor bendición y regalo de Dios en nuestra madurez.
    Todo hermoso, todo perfecto…Los colores muy acertados, todos los detalles hechos con gran amor, del amor que nunca se gasta, que perdurará siempre.
    Te felicito, es muy hermoso todo.
    Por cierto, mi hija menor, Leticia, espera también su segundo bebé para el mes de noviembre. Todavía no se sabe si es niño o niña. Estoy también emocionada.
    Con cariño

  8. Patti Fralix says:

    Pam, I share your excitement about this blessed event! I so well remember Seth’s arrival, and his years of growing up, and what a wonderful young man he became. With grandchildren of my own now, I can feel your excitement! Alison is lovely and so sweet, and with two parents like Seth and Alison, and wonderful grandparents on both sides, precious Ella Mae will have so much love! And of course, the love and watchful caring of Jesus. There are so many memories in the making!

    • Everyday Living says:

      Patti, we are beyond excited, as you know and understand! Thanks for all your wonderful words of encouragement and well wishes! Much love and hugs!

  9. Oh this is absolutely darling ! Love the color scheme and everything about it and I know that you can hardly wait ! I HAD THAT BIBLE STORY BOOK as a CHILD, then ordered it for my boys when THEY were little. I don’t think there’s ever been a better book with such beautiful illustrations and paintings in it. I have seen a few other children’s Bible story books with cartoons etc. and I think oh boy, you don’t know what you are missing. I had to smile seeing it on the table in the nursery 🙂

  10. Stacey says:

    Pam, this is so adorable. I love that color combination and all the special touches that are just for Ella Mae. Love the name too! I can sense that you are so excited and I would be too. 😉

    • Everyday Living says:

      Stacey, you are too kind! Yes I am so excited to welcome Ella Mae, I can’t wait to hold her and read to her! Happy Tuesday, Pam

      • Stacey says:

        So glad you shared this with Thoughts of Home on Thursday, Pam. Pinned to TOHOT and my own baby boards. We want more and more people to see this special room. 🙂

  11. Lisa says:

    Nurseries are so much fun to decorate and there are so many beautiful choices out there! This one is adorable! I love the coral/teal color combo. It’s so striking and chic! I am sure Ella Mae will spend many happy hours in it!

  12. Jemma says:

    Such a sweet and perfect nursery, just adore the colors!
    Thank you for joining us in Thoughts Of Home on Thursday!
    Have a blessed weekend too,

  13. Pam,
    Thanks so much for sharing this darling room with us at Show and Share. I luv the colors and all the pretty little things (my girls had that Bible book too). The room will be featured at the party on Monday.


    • Everyday Living says:

      Linda, thanks so much! I am excited that you will feature the nursery that I decorated for our first grandchild! Will be looking forward to it!

  14. Jann Olson says:

    It’s all just darling Pam! The perfect spot to lay a new little bundle of joy. Love the fabrics and the aqua and coral color combination. I am having fun redecorating my outdoor space in those colors. We are hosting our grandsons wedding here in June and those are the colors she has chosen. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

    • Everyday Living says:

      Thanks, sweet Jann! How much fun to be hosting your grandson’s wedding in June! I know you are excited and I am sure you are preparing now! Can’t wait to see the pics! I know it will be beautiful!

  15. I don’t know how I missed this last week Pam, I just saw it featured at Coastal Charm, it’s fantastic! What a fun color scheme, and I love the coral dresser! Little Ella Mae has it made, she’s already a pampered princess!

    • Everyday Living says:

      Thanks, Jenna! It was so much fun to decorate her nursery and we are on countdown for her arrival! Excited!
