I’m finally heading into my seventh month of this pregnancy, and I have yet to touch the nursery.
But I have been “pinning” on Pinterest for months to compile my favorite ideas and pieces. Here’s a glimpse of what I hope will be a beautiful nursery someday soon.
Because we live in an older home, we are constantly grappling for closet and storage space wherever we can find it. Here are some cute storage options for baby (and maybe mommy too!)
We also plan to pull up the well-worn carpet in the baby’s room to reveal beautiful hardwood floors. That means we’ll need a rug to cozy up the space a bit. Here are a few of my faves:
I promised not to paint another room in my house blue, so I’m looking to fabrics to integrate another more non-traditional color that I love for boys.
Art is an important addition to every room in our house. We try to collect things that speak to us or that reflect the things we hold most dear. We also want color and inspiration in every room – and that goes for baby’s room too.
I started with these adorable French prints. I’m hoping that we can start early so my children can all speak French someday and not “Franglais” like their mother.
I just love this print for so many reasons… and may not save it for baby’s room. I may actually put this up as a reminder for the whole family that each day provides us the opportunity to be amazing!
And while these little back-end doggy hooks aren’t really wall art, they do add functional whimsy to a room.
And last but not least, lighting. This is where my vision got started. I absolutely hate the light fixture that has been in this bedroom since the day we moved in. I just have never gotten around to replacing it and honestly, hadn’t really found what I wanted. Until now…
This light fixture reminds me of those cotton-y dandelion flowers that we blew as kids. I love that it’s neutral. I love that it’s unique. And I love that it’s inexpensive!
Hopefully, this nursery will come together sooner than later. Stay tuned for pics of the final project…
