Nursery Inspiration

I very nearly titled this "Baby Inspiration" and then I thought about what that phrase meant, and I I felt like I should post a bunch of pictures of cute babies, as though I was picking out attributes for my offspring.  And then I felt a bit like a mad professor.  The end.

Instead, it is about the nursery.  While we were on vacation this Summer, I asked Handsome if we could re-do the smallest of our bedrooms into a nursery.  And I mean totally re-do.  I asked him if we could rip the nasty awful very-bad-no-good popcorn ceiling down, if we could put up board and batten, and if we could install some new carpet.  Due mostly to the euphoria of being on vacation, he told me "sure!"  
ASIDE: Ha!  I got him so good.  Ladies, you want a "yes"?  Ask while on vacation.  Something about being removed from the everyday makes anything seem possible.  A well-timed drink doesn't hurt either. 
And then we came home, we built a shed, we paid for Dr.'s visits and labs and tuition and property tax... and suddenly I'm scaling down my own vision of what I wanted to do in that littlest of rooms.  D-man hasn't reneged on his promise.  He still thinks we're doing all the above, even though I'm pretty sure we're not.  

But I still dream.  And so I wanted to throw some pictures up here, give you a little bit-o-the vision that I see when I think about where our littlest will sleep (Oh, and baby will sleep.  Baby must.)  I actually have very little concrete ideas for what I want.  Grays (or some other neutrals) and brights.  That's all I know.  No light pink, no black, no dark brown (unless it's wood).  Basically, anything is fair game!  Here's what I've got in mind.

For The Room:



For The Accents:

One Two Three Four Five Six

What do you think?  What are your favorites?  Is there enough of a theme here that I'm not going to screw everything up?  Guess we'll just have to wait and see!  (Oh, and most of the "Accents" are from Etsy sellers, you should go check them out!)
Baby on the Brain,


  1. I love the scrabble letters for baby's name, and the repurposed furniture for the changing table. And a big comfy chair. Can't have too many of those. Also the ugly doll - so cute.

  2. i love etsy! i'm digging the grey mixed with a bright. can't wait to see what you come up with!
