Nursery Preview

 Today I am sharing a sneak peek at Julia’s nursery.  It’s about 80% finished and LBH, it may stay in that range for a few more weeks or months.  🙂  And nothing is ever 100% done around here anyway — that’s part of the fun!

My favorite elements of J’s nursery so far are the subtly striped walls (my husband did a great job!), the wooden monogram above her crib and the playful roman shades….

So, it’s coming together.  The last bits and pieces are:

  • Bribing my husband to Paint the dresser and an end table a high gloss white.
  • Select lamps for either side of the love seat.
  • Choose a few more pillows for the glider and love seat.
  • Decide what to do for wall art above the glider.  I am thinking about fun DIY abstract canvas or a medium-sized gallery wall with framed family pictures and mementos from her birth.

I will include a complete source list when I do the big reveal, but here is a quick one for you in the meantime:

Paint Color: Benjamin Moore Daiquiri Ice
Monogram letters: custom order from KY Grace Designs
Jenny Lind Crib: Land of Nod (ordered in 2007)
Crib Sheet and Skirt: Serena & Lily
Crib Bumper: Pottery Barn Kids (ordered in 2007).  This will come out before the baby sleeps in the crib due to recommendation that bumpers be removed from cribs (reason why I didn’t order the bumper that matches the crib skirt from Serena & Lily)
Roman Shades:  custom order from Windows By Melissa
Pink Flower Pillow: Serena and Lily
Green and Pink Flower Pillow: Caitlin Wilson Textiles
Dream Big Print: The Love Shop
Owl Wastebasket: Target

Stay tuned!  I hope to be back before the week is through with an update on the 2-years-but-who’s-counting bathroom renovation….

Nursery Inspiration

So, we found out that we are having A GIRL

Even before we found out the gender of the baby, I have been envisioning a mint green nursery.  Now, I am thinking mint green and white horizontal stripes with hot pink accents.  Here is my inspiration image:

Substitute hot pink for the red, and promptly remove the wall decal!

Here are some other inspiration images of nurseries, stripes and the color palette — I can’t wait to get my husband painting that room!

What do you think?  I am still not sold on the stripes and considering wainscoting on the lower half of the wall with mint green up above.  Hmmm.  Lots to do.  Stay tuned!
