Nursery Mood Board.

Tuesday, January 12, 2010



Yesterday, after 4 hours of modified bed rest I thought I was losing my mind. I have never been one to sit still for very long and I have a feeling this week is going to be tougher than I thought. Tough, but completely worth it. Around hour 5 I found myself reverting back to one of my old favorite habits; designing baby number two's nursery.

I was completely inspired by the new adult bedding design that I saw in Serena and Lily's new catalog. When I found out that they will turn any of their fabrics into crib bedding? Um, sold! The best part? The nursery is eventually going to become our future guest room. So, as I told my husband last night, if I design this room around this bedding, and keep the accessories "child neutral" we will have a perfect and easy transition into a gorgeous adult room. All we would need is to purchase of a new bed, and switch out some artwork. Even he was keen on the idea. Miracles do happen!

When ever this next baby decides to grace us with its presence not only will I get the baby bedding but the adult as well. Then when we decide to put the kiddies together I will finally have the guest room of my dreams! (Yes, I do dream about this kind of stuff.)

I still have a few key pieces to find (a rug, curtains, artwork,) but I am already picturing myself sitting in this perfect room. Wow! Who knew you could get so much done just laying in bed. After a few months of this I'm pretty sure I could take over the world. That or at least get my house fully furnished!

Thank you all for your well wishes, and for those of you who gave me a much needed reality check. I'm staying positive that we still will be able to do the transfer but preparing myself for another two month wait. So long as my internet holds my sanity should remain intact as well!

I always liked the idea of doing a gender neutral nursery since it is upstairs and can be seen from our living room. If I did the room in traditional pinks/ purples than it would look really out of place and would be hard to transition into a guest room. I've never been a girly girl kind of girl so I figure she will just be following in mom's footsteps!

Me, too. Gender neutral all the way, lady. How are you feeling today, btw? I had the pain after the retrieval, too. It's freaky but hand in there. You are doing everything so well. And being a good patient. xo B

ooh no i didnt mean for the color scheme!! I am all about gender neutral. Colors don't have gender, silly society.

I meant, if you have a girl won't you need the room for her, rather than a guest bedroom.

Yummy Mummy said...

Oh, haha. I think we will likely put the two together, whatever the sex. We probably won't live here more than 5 -6 years more so while they are little we figure we might as well make the most use of the three bedrooms. Then hopefully in the next house we will have 4 bedrooms, that would be magical!

Thanks Bri! i appreciate all your support :) You are awesome!

Anon...I used iWeb. I just opened a blank document and copied and pasted the things I liked. I do this a lot because it really makes it easier to picture everything together. I do it with clothes too! It is too much fun!

Hope you're feeling better today. A dear friend of mine went through all of this and more. It failed once but now she's got beautiful twins, male and female, and she's blissfully happy. Persevering is the key. Best of luck. Ciao. Antonella
