Whew! What a rollercoaster we have been on since I last posted!
Here's a quick run-through to get you up to date..sort of..
1. We found out we are having a GIRL
2. We started prepping for her nursery
3. We completed her registry (that is a beast to tackle)
4. We juggled the celebrations, preparations and an extremely busy season with clients (all good things! Praises!)
5. We vacationed (yassssss)
6. We are back to reality.. and it's really not that bad ;)
I wanted to bring you guys along some of the changes we have made to baby Scott's room so far! :) I thought it would be fun to let you go on this journey with us as we select paint colors, pick accessories, find the essentials, find DEALS ;), and make her room something special!
Yesterday, we were able to get her crib together (which I want to add is my sister and I's old crib! It's so neat to be able to use such a meaningful piece of furniture in her nursery), and we also got an old dresser painted (from my husband's sister! .. another meaningful piece that baby girl will have in her room!) for her changing table! These two things were pretty major for us because it means we are that much closer to TRULY being able to care for her in this room!
We started narrowing down some paint colors (call us crazy, but we are leaning toward a soft blush) to go above about the board and batten we will install very, very soon! (stay tuned for that little tutorial)
I think finding a good color direction and vision are the most important parts of the design process and usually the most time consuming! So, while it may sound like we didn't get much checked off the list, we feel very accomplished in knowing the vision is coming together!
Take a look..
(Just a few BEFORE pics)
The dresser we will be using as her changing table :)
We went with Benjamin Moore - Pigeon Grey
I love how the color turned out! I also had an awesome painter to do the job ;)
Next up, is her crib.. that was handed down from my parents :)
If you follow along with me on Instagram, you probably have already seen baby girl's rug that we bought a few weeks back! (Maybe we jumped the gun, but I just knew I wanted something cozy and soft and neutral on the floor! :))
Now, as for color direction in the rest of the nursery and overall vibe - here is what we came up with:
1. Neutral and light
2. Classic with a playful twist
3. Girly, without going overboard
The battle begins with finding the perfect blush pink for the walls (remember, it will only be about half of wall coverage with the board and batten), accent pillow fabric (shown) & also color inspiration for accessories in her room..
Let us know what you think of our progress so far! :)
