Lately, all my extra effort and free time have been focused on house shopping (!!!), hence my lack of blogging. Chris and I met with a loan officer last week and have been officially pre-approved for a home loan. We've looked at countless house listings online and on Friday we're going to visit a few in person. It's about time! You may remember that back in September, the rental home we had been living in for the first two years of our marriage sold, leaving us homeless. We've been staying with Chris' parents since then to save money for a house, and with our little miss on the way (due in three months, give or take a few days!) we're ready to find a home of our own.
I haven't allowed myself to think too much about decorating a nursery since we don't exactly have a room to decorate just yet, but now that we're looking into houses, I've been thinking more and more about that tiny little space. I'm still not sure what we're going to end up doing (although it will probably involve a fox/woodland motif of some sort) so I've gathered up some lovey photos from blogland to fuel my inspiration.
Meadow Nursery collection from Dwell studio. It's the sweetest woodland-themed print in pink, light blue and navy that isn't fussy or too girly. That said, I refuse to pay more for a bedding set than for the crib it will go on, so I'll have to find baby's bedding elsewhere.
Senn & Sons? I love all the details, especially the yellow chandelier and Hygge & West focal wall.
this nursery from A Lovely Lark is one of my favorites. Those curtains provide the perfect splash of color without overpowering the entire room.
Style at Home.
constellation-themed room has a beautiful dark feature wall that doesn't feel too heavy, and the citron accents are wonderful.
pink nursery, though.
I think decorating a nursery for a girl will be more of a challenge than I originally thought. My room as a little girl was over the top: frills everywhere, pink everything. I had an extensive unicorn collection and a wallpaper boarder to match (that's right. UNICORNS.) Although that isn't exactly my style now, there's a tiny piece of me that wants to go overboard on the girlyness with our little one. I think the key is to find the right combination of items that inspire creativity and can grow with her, with just a touch of girlyness. Challenge accepted.
