Calling All Designers: HELP!!!
Thanks for your kind words about our babymoon—it was the best! We had a blast in Charleston, and I was really sad to have to go. It made me realize that one trip to Charleston every six years is NOT okay—we need to be going back at least once or twice a year! We’ll see what happens, once the baby comes.
We got home on Monday evening, and spent yesterday…moving!
Not moving houses…thank the good lord. I don’t think I can handle another move just quite yet.
We were moving offices. Ryan moved into my office, I moved my office into the guest room, and now Ryan’s old office is ready to be…
The only problem?
I’m completely freaking out about what to do for the nursery. I’m not sure why—after all, the nursery is arguably the least important part of this whole process. The baby doesn’t care what the nursery looks like. But for whatever reason, my mind has gotten stuck on this part of the nesting process, and I cannot for the life of me decide how to decorate the nursery.
Color schemes? Themes? Crib bedding? Wall art?
I can’t decide on any of it.
The walls are a kind of dove-gray right now. We’re not opposed to painting…but I don’t know what color I want to paint.
I’m not huge on girl nurseries that have an overdose of pink. I’m thinking yellow or green instead, with a few pink accents.
One big step we finally took? We picked out furniture yesterday. That’s the good news. The bad news is that it’s pretty much just a vintage-y looking white set of girl furniture (a crib, a dresser, and a changing table), so it still isn’t giving me much direction in terms of everything else in the room.
I picked out the glider I want to get, but I don’t want to choose a fabric until we know colors.
Are there any interior designers out there who want to come design a nursery? I’ll bake you lots and lots of cookies.
All you artistic types– any thoughts? All you mamas out there– any website recommendations for nursery decor and ideas?
I want to get it done soon, so I just need to bite the bullet and go for it.
Easier said than done!
