I see a lot of parents-to-be posting pictures on Facebook and their blogs, with their nursery inspirations. I see people who find a picture of a nursery that they like, and pretty much replicate what they see.
I, on the other hand, have a vision for our nursery that was developed solely in my own head, so with this post, I will try to bring that vision to life!
My vision for our nursery is something that is unisex. This is going to be our nursery for not only Perogy, but for any future children, so I want it to be functional for at least 3-4 years or more. After we are done with babies, it will likely become a play room or a bedroom for one of our children.
I found this picture, which is pretty similar in layout to what our nursery will be.
|Imagine stairs where the window is, and that the picture was taken from the doorway to our master bedroom.|
I think that it would look best if painted similarly to the above picture, with the peaked ceilings white and the walls sage, but Ryan thinks that we should add a third shade to the mix, with one wall being a bit different.
|Grey-ish sage colour that I envision for our nursery.|
For flooring, Ryan will be installing laminate, in a medium colored shade similar to this one.
As we received a used crib from my older sister in white, this will serve as the basis for all other furniture purchases.
|Expedit shelf from IKEA. I envision this being used in its vertical position with baskets/bins for my cloth diapers & accessories, and open shelving for books. I also love how I can add pieces to this if I decide to later.|
|IKEA Hemnes dresser will be used for change station. Removable change pad will be handy to move throughout house as we need it.|
As you may have read in previous blog posts, I will be re-finishing a vintage rocking chair that was Ryan's mom's. Although the nursery will feature white furniture, I have chosen to keep the natural wood with this chair, and am hoping that it doesn't look too clash-y. I think that the wood floors will help to blend everything.
|The upholstery and stain colour of this chair are very similar to the one that I am doing, except mine will be teal instead of pink.|
|My only concern is that this decal may be peeled off and consumed by a hungry toddler!|
|Cricut Create a Critter owl. This is not the one that my sister made, but an example of how cute it is!|
Where did you get your inspiration for your nursery?
