We have officially moved out the old furniture and will be spending this weekend preparing the covert our guest room into a nursery for Baby Cox! It is getting more real with each day that passes!
I haven’t shared much on here recently, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been busy preparing for our little arrival. We have been shopping for baby furniture, building our registry, and of course, choosing our nursery scheme. And now, as we are just under 15 weeks from meeting baby, it is time to get this party started.
My inspiration behind this nursery is less of that modern farmhouse vibe reflected in the rest of our home, and more inspired by calming colors that are still neutral enough for baby boy or girl! I’m using a palette inspired by a set of stacking cups my mom bought for baby, but really plan to make the main color a sage green, mixed with other neutrals. I’ve been back and forth on committing to a theme – it feels hard to do when we don’t know if it will be a room for a little boy or a little girl – but think I might sprinkle travel-themed prints throughout the space rather than one full-force theme!
When we redid our Master Bedroom last summer (yes, I realize I still haven’t shared the completed space!), I toyed with the idea of building a batten board accent wall but decided to do it in our future nursery instead. The room we are using as our nursery is much smaller than our bedroom, which makes the thought of tackling this project a little less daunting. So between the accent wall and a pop of color, among a sea of other neutrals, I think this space will quickly become one of my favorites in our house.
Choosing furniture for this space has been a bit harder than I anticipated. I love this set from Pottery Barn Kids (as seen in the top left image of the inspiration board), but would prefer to get something a little more cost-effient. We have finally narrowed down what crib we are getting (and it is in stock – another roadblock we have run into!), and are on the search for a dresser with a changing table. Mamas, I’d love hear some of your recommendations! What were some of your must-haves for your nursery? Share them with me in the comments!
