The nursery, that is.
Up until last week, it hadn't changed much since this post. Besides getting messier and more full of stuff.
We're taking baby steps.
Here are our loose nursery plans:
For the walls? Green!
To be more specific, it's called Bay Laurel from Restoration Hardware.
We also plan to use punchy accents of yellow, pink, and orange.
When it comes to decorating a little girl's room, we're all for sweet, feminine, and cozy. But we're also going to try and avoid a pure pink explosion! When it comes to nursery stuff, we're most drawn to modern furniture and prints.
For our crib, we really like this one:
It's from Wal-mart. I saw it used over at Young House Love and really liked the looks of it. Plus, it's pretty inexpensive. Bonus!
For a rocking chair/nursing chair, I was pretty tempted by something like this early on (photo from pottery barn kids):
Poang chair that we bought right after we got married, which I'm sure will work out fine! Friends of ours have used Poang chairs for nursery chairs and have been happy with the results. Plus, it continues to be the single most comfortable seat that we own. Couch included, in my opinion.
Here it is in our very first apartment!
We'll probably just buy it/make it a new pad to match our decor.
We're still working out dresser options. We'd like something that's has a pretty simple look and modern lines, to go with the crib. And we'd rather go with a shorter, longer one so that we can top it off with a changing pad. Any suggestions?
I'd really like to include a built-in bookshelf along a particular stretch of the window wall. It's an awkward little spot and I think it'd be great to find build in shelves to house some books. Because goodness knows any child of ours will have lots of books. She already does.
We're also going to install a ceiling fan. Our A/C is great downstairs but our 2nd floor gets TOASTY on hot summer days and nights. We put one in our room and DANG is there a big difference. Plus, the existing light fixture is ugly. It needs to go.
I'd love to hear your suggestions for companies, websites, ideas, etc. for sweet modern nurseries. Or just any baby gear, really. Cloth diapers? Bottles? Changing pads? Bouncy seats? I'm a novice at this!
