Quincy Freeman Eldridge is a certified boss babe. She has changed the game on women’s western fashion with Rodeo Quincy, continuously brought us goals (squad, style, couple, you name it!) and she is a supportive rodeo wife. There are no boots this woman does not wear. And now, those boots are branded “mom.” Quincy and her husband, Dakota Eldridge, are expecting their first child this September. And in true the true fashion maven way, Quincy and her family have created the most incredible nursery for their new little bundle of joy.
We caught up with Quincy to talk all things nursery. And to give you a behind the scenes look at Quincy’s nursery goals. She even gave us where to shop her favorite items!
Tell us a little bit about your (soon to be here) bundle of joy!
I know that 2020 has been a tough year for everyone, but it has truly been the hardest year of my life. In April of this year my mother, Sally, very unexpectedly lost her battle with cancer and my world came crashing down. I was 17 weeks pregnant at the time. On Easter Sunday, just two days before we lost mom, my family found out it was going to be a little girl. I’m so grateful that I got to share that news with my mom but my heart hurts knowing that she won’t be here with us on earth when the baby arrives. My husband and I had been going back and forth on names, but on the day we lost mom he looked at me and said, “I guess we know what her name is going to be – Sally”. It seemed the good Lord knew exactly what my family and I, along with countless people that loved my mom needed. He blessed us with a baby girl named Sally due to arrive September 19, 2020. My mom was an amazing woman and without her, there’s a big hole in our lives, but this little girl will help heal our broken hearts. Little Sally sure has some big boots to fill!
You have incredible style in everything you do, how did your style translate to nursery decorating?
I would love to take full credit with decorating the nursery, but my big sister, Holly, helped turn my vision into life. The only thing I had to buy for the nursery was my Wayfair crib (shop here) and the Samantha Lantana wallpaper (shop here). Everything else were pieces I repurposed from my house and my mom’s house, along with a few antique store finds. It was almost like mom was giving us these little gifts for the nursery as we were raiding her house looking for cute pieces for the baby’s room. I wanted the nursery to have a touch of cowgirl but also be classic and pretty. We used colors of mustard, gold, olive and light pink. I’m big on family and traditions so I wanted to tie that in as well. We incorporated gold horse showmanship trophies won by my great-great grandfather, some won by my grandfather – Tom Marvel, and a few won by my mother. There is a vintage roller horse that was my mom’s when she was a little girl. You can find my silver baby cups decorating the shelves along with vintage glass bottles from my husband’s great grandparents ranch in Nevada. There is a pair of deer horns hanging in her closet that were from my husband’s great-grandpa Bill. My Catholic faith plays an influence with the décor as well, with a large picture of Our Lady of Guadalupe hanging on her wall.
What has been your favorite part of the process?
Spending the time with my family putting the nursery together and prepping for the arrival of this special little girl.
What is your most cherished aspect of your new baby’s nursery?
A lot of things in her nursery are very special to me. I cherish all of our family’s pieces, but my favorite piece in her nursery is the large photo I had blown up of my mom as a little girl. My mom has her cowboy hat on while standing with her hip cocked and her little hand on her gun. She was all cowgirl and proud of it! I know that my little Sally will have a special angel looking over her and with her to walk her through life. I pray that we can have a special bond like my mother and I did. We can’t wait for her to get here and to give Cowgirl Magazine the first sneak peak of our little Cowgirl Sally!
