Make room for baby…!

As if the finishing details of our home were not enough to focus my full time attention to, we now have an entire room remodel to take on. A baby room. That’s right we are expecting a baby in March. We are over the moon excited and feel so blessed. Naturally, one of the nesting activities that excites me the most about this new addition is…the nursery.

We decided to keep the theme gender neutral. No we are not waiting to find out the sex, we have an appointment in a couple weeks for that. We just want to keep a neutral theme and palette so we can transition another baby into the room in the next pregnancy. Since we would ideally like to have siblings close together, I see no reason to spend money all over again when another baby comes along.

Ok, let’s get to the good stuff. Check out my ideas below…

This classic Jenny Lind crib is what we decided to go with. I love this because the style is so classic, has been around FOREVER, and will never go out of style. Plus, there was a screaming deal at our local store here. I love supporting local small business and was so excited when we discovered my favorite crib design of all time was available. Plus, this style is sustainable, lead free, and non toxic. Check out the manufacturer here. Can it get any better?

Here is the crib set I chose. Serena and Lily Rory pattern. I had been eyeing this set even before I was pregnant. Then, it was marked down to clearance to make way for new inventory, and I knew it had to be mine.

We have a family heirloom rocking chair (which I cannot wait to show you a snap shot of…it’s beautiful). Since it’s not a glider, I will need something to rest my feet on. I love this Moroccan pouf from Serena and Lily. Though, the price tag is a bit steep. I know John Derian sells one as well here. Does anyone know where else these are available for a better price? I do have to say that I would spend a pretty penny on this investment pice, as it would transition to any room in the home post baby.


This is the current color of the walls in the room, Devine’s Muslin. I love the way it looks and I will keep it as I think it’s the perfect neutral base.


For the walls….either of the sweet decals.




This one above is fabric vs vinyl. Does anyone have experience with either one? I am curious as I have never attempted wall decals before. Let me know if you have any advice.
