nursery inspiration

12 Jan

I am in full swing nursery mode over here. I love home decor and design in general so the project of working on baby Glodney’s room is an insanely fun one for me. I bet every parent enjoys building the baby’s nursery though. It makes their impending arrival feel even more real. The room we are turning into his nursery is currently our office- we will be leaving our desk behind though so baby G will have to learn how to share until we move to a larger home one day. Even though we call it our “office” the space has never felt finished and it’s purpose has always been ambiguous. I never actually work in there! Let’s just say…itΒ has needed some loving for quite some time. As I mentioned in a previous post we spent most of our holiday break cleaning it out.




Looks like a terribly fun holiday project, huh? We made a big dent but there is still some work to be done. I’m hoping to get the last of it cleared out before the painter comes this Saturday. I’ve settled on light grey walls for the baby’s room. If you know me then this color choice will not come as a surprise. Grey is most definitely my favorite color. It goes with everything! I love the way it looks with white and I love the way it looks with bright pops of color- both of which I plan to incorporate into his room. I also love ethnic rugs and baby animal heads. Let’s hope the animal heads don’t scare the shit out of the little guy. Here are some of my inspiration photos…

    Nursery planning is so much fun! I’m currently in the process of converting ours into a “big kid room” right now. The little guy is so excited about getting a new bed… But I’m sad to say goodbye to his crib. We have the gray/white version of the white one in your fourth picture. Is it weird that a crib is one of my favorite pieces of furniture I own?!?! I just love how it looks!

    It sounds like Baby G is going to have such a stylish nursery! Of course he would with a mama like you! I love the baby animal heads. They look like they are peaking through a window to say hello to their little friend πŸ™‚ I can’t wait to see what the finish product looks like!

    We have three of those little animals for Charlotte’s nursery! I love them πŸ™‚ I think this nursery is going to be so adorable. I like the direction you’re taking the theme. Also, I think I was one of few moms not excited about decorating the nursery. I found it really overwhelming because there were several ideas I had – it was hard to narrow down the choices. This is one of the reasons my house is so bare – too many choices so I just never end up making a decision!

    What FUN – love the decor, especially the artwork – there is just something about neutral color with pops of color and fun artwork that make a room just feel alive! Enjoy πŸ™‚

    You are due a few months after me and you’re diving into the nursery. High five! Because we are moving slowly in that department! We do have that same crib that is in your 4th photo, as well as the faux fur throw on the glider. We also have gray walls (which were already gray)! So much fun. You have great light in that room! Can’t wait to see the progress. xxx
