Several months ago, my husband and I found out that we were expecting a little girl! Once we got past all of our mixed emotions of shock, excitement, fear and then happiness; it was time to start planning a nursery. Above is my design board, for what this little lady's new home will be once she comes home.
The goal of her nursery was to make it both baby friendly and chic. The biggest elements of her room, the crib and dresser are grey and white, which are two colors that work with everything. Secondly, since I knew we were having a girl, I wanted to make sure pink was in the room; but I didn't want to go overboard. So I chose a pink rug to anchor the space, with a bold pattern. Since newborns are attracted to bold patterns, and high contrast in colors, I thought this rug was perfect for my little girl.
Next, I found this fantastic quilt on ETSY that infused all the colors I wanted to use for the nursery: pink, green, yellow, blue, and white. I have been warned by many friends and family that babies go through A LOT of clothes, and that I will soon be doing laundry everyday. So I chose a Senegalese basket from West Elm that is fun and durable enough to deal with the loads of laundry coming its way. Lastly, finding a rocker that meant both my husband and I's needs was a real trial. We went to several stores, and could never agree on one chair, until we landed on the Shay glider from Room & Board. This glider has a nice high back, its comfortable for both of us, and it can be reupholstered in over 300 Room & Board fabrics. I chose a pouf over an ottoman so that as our daughter grows, it can be used for many other purposes.
Here is the floor plan for the nursery; I wanted to make sure there wasn't too much product in the room, so I left enough empty space in the nursery for tummy time, and just playing around with her toys as she grows up.
