Nursery Reveal

Planning the nursery is one of the most fun things about brining a new baby into the family, at least in my opinion.  I knew from the start I wanted to do something soft, serene and classic.  I started by putting together an idea board here with the general feel I wanted for the room.

I knew I did not want a theme but rather something that can change and grow with him easily as he gets
older.  I have always loved the look of breadboard and thanks to my parents who came to help it is probably one of my favorite aspects of the room and adds some depth to a plain wall. 

I knew though that I wanted a calm and relaxing feel with different textures and fabrics but nothing too loud.  From the velvety soft crib sheets and blanket to the precious burlap pennant banner and curtain ties I think the textures and fabrics that make up the room add interest and depth to what could otherwise have been a bland and stark space.  I also love the contrast between the grays and soft blues and whites, it couldn't have come together more perfectly.

I feel its a space thats relaxing enough but also visually engaging for our sweet boy.  He loves to look up at the banner when I change him and the scroll monogram on the wall grabs his attention when he is hanging out in his crib or playing on the floor.

The other thing I really wanted to incorporate from the start was some sort of book shelf on the wall.  This took me forever to find what I finally wanted but I love how it turned out and its fun to interchange the books with seasons and holidays.

A friends sister made me this personalized print with Good Night Moon and I couldn't love it more! It ties in the gray perfectly and it is one of my favorite stories to read the boys at bedtime. The elephant prints I think are beyond precious it was so hard to narrow down my choices!

This room turned out exactly how I had imagined and it is probably one of my favorite rooms of the house.  I can literally sit in there and rock the baby while big brother plays for hours.  The calm and relaxing feel came through perfectly.

One Kings Lane also has a great resource with their Nursery Style Guide that has some great ideas to think about when deciding what to do with your nursery!

pretty nice blog, following :)

I'm Katie a 27 year old mommy and wife. Welcome to my blog where I will chronicle the happenings of my life as I find the balance between being both SAHM by day and CVICU nurse by night.

I love Jesus and strive to be more like Christ every day. Running, reading, and cooking are some of my favorite past-times. I love photography but I am no pro, but it helps I have such a cute subject to practice on!!
