Baby need a stylish and comfortable place to sleep…I better get working on that!
At the risk of turning my home-y blog into a baby blog, today I decided to blog about my nursery design inspiration. Next week we find out if this little baby I’m carrying is a boy or a girl. I’m at the halfway point of my pregnancy already and can’t quite believe it. I’m practically panicking because I think I have ZERO time left to figure out the nursery. Chris strongly reminds me that I have 4 more months!
Before I even became pregnant I started saving links on Project Nursery, a fabulous website where mommies (and daddies) can post pictures of their nursery design, including descriptions and references to where they got all their goods to complete the room. Of course Pinterest has been a huge help too!
My nursery design has changed at least once since I started seriously planning and pinning. I’ve changed crib styles and color schemes. Trouble is, without knowing yet if it’s a boy or girl, it’s hard to narrow down options. I HAVE NO PATIENCE. Most of the rooms I look at seem to be more girly…hopefully that’s a sign.
Let’s start with rooms I really like…
Baby T’s library:
Loves: Even though this room was for a girl, I feel like it is very neutral and could go either way!
-colorful rag rug (although we have carpet, so we probably don’t need a rug). This is actually 6 small entry rugs taped together. Cool idea!
-Jenny Lind white crib with colorful pillows and throws. I’m sure Nana S has some great ideas for a quilt. =)
-wall ledges to place books. The mom who did this room said she loved how the books were a great art display, that added lots of color to the room.
-As of yesterday I love the ceiling stripes and wall color. I know they would be a pain in the ass to do, but they say that contrast for babies is important. The only thing I need to strongly think about is if the gray color on the wall (Disney’s Mickey’s Shadow) would be too dark for our Northwest condo. However, that is the one room in the house that gets the most light and has the biggest windows, so it might be alright.
Loves: – hands down the crocheted blanket in bright rainbow colors and the large circular rug from Anthropologie
-The “LOVE” pillow and the bright prints over the crib
-The tissue Poms over the closet-click the picture for additional pics of this room.
No-so-loves: I love the dark slate wall, but am thinking for our dreary days it would be too depressing.
Gray and Pink Sweet Baby Girl Nursery
When I found this blogger I practically fell in love. She reminds me alot of myself, or maybe who I want to be, because she’s super cute and stylish and has a City Mini Stoller of course. This nursery is much different than the other two but there are elements I definitely like.
Loves: -the soft furry rug, the slate gray glider,
-Jenny Lind white crib, tissue poms over crib
-Hot pink crane humidifier
-Open concept changing table (refurbished cabinet with doors taken off), with accessory tray next to changing pad.
-Over the glider there is a little print that she made that says, “Today I will be happier than a bird with a french fry”. I love this!
No-so-loves: a little bit too barren for me.
Loves: -ledges for books
-IKEA Expedit Bookshelf that could double as a bench
– IKEA Poang rocker along with colorful pillows and throws
-Dresser with custom changing pad cover and clear accessory tray (I love this dresser, but unfortunately it was custom designed at a local store on the east coast.)
-Wall color: Benjamin Moore Natura, Stonington Gray
Individual Elements I love:
I think that’s all of it. Actually, who am I kidding, I have an entire other word document full of links to Project Nursery rooms. I had to narrow it down to three or four primary rooms and take elements from them to try and make a stylish and comfy room for Baby T.
Tell me, what do you think? Likes and dislikes? Suggestions?
You all know I have to ask everyone I know for advice before I end up settling on something.
