For several months now, I’ve been trying to picture in my mind’s eye the perfect nursery to assemble for my soon-to-be little one. All I can picture is soft, neutral colors. No bright pink or bright blue. No giant polka dots on the walls. No cars painted on every square inch of space (although we still love my son’s room).
I thought it was odd that I kept gravitating to white and tan. Those colors don’t seem very “baby” to me, but it was really the direction I was headed. Then, I saw this photo, and I knew I was right on the money.
I plan on mimicking the canopy over the crib, the sweet shelf hanging on the wall (mine will showcase vintage baby clothes), the chandelier, and even the paint and trim technique. My crib is a blonde wood, but I still think I can make it work – my grandmother bought the crib for us as a gift before my son was born, so I’m NOT going to get rid of it simply because it doesn’t match perfectly.
The only thing that I think I will change will to be to add in some tiny pink accents. I definitely don’t want anything over the top, but I do want to add it in somewhere for an elegant splash of color.
Wait, did you catch that? Pink?!? It’s a GIRL!
