We haven't actually bought anything for the baby's room. Is that weird? surprising? uncharacteristic of me? Probably a little of all of those. But I have created a registry and made note of some ideas I have for the nursery, so I thought I'd share what I'm plans I'm cooking up with this inspiration board.
I had two objectives when putting the inspiration together: no theme and gender neutral.
1- crib bedding -I've always loved polka dots and I was having a hard time choosing one or two colors, so this multi-colored dot bedding seemed perfect for the baby's room.
2- owl lamp -I love that it doesn't scream "baby" so it can be reused once we don't have babies anymore.
3- book shelf -I already have a collection of children's books and I want my children to love to read, so a book shelf will be very important to the room. I love how this one displays the cute covers of the books too.
4- pegboard -I love the industrial feel a pegboard brings to a space and I love organization, so having one over the changing table makes total sense to me. I'm also excited to have a few projects for the mister to work on in the baby's room.
5- crib -I love the simplicity of a white crib. I actually hope to paint most of the baby furniture white since the walls of the room are a chocolate brown.
6- rocking chair -I love the color on this chair and simple lines. It's also super affordable (from Ikea), so it fits the bill.
Have any advice or suggestions for nursery must-haves? This first-time mamma would love to hear about it!
