With only two weeks to go until my due date and knowing that our pea pod could arrive at any time, I'd say that David and I finished up this room in just the nick of time! I know it's a sentimental space since we're bringing home our first baby to this room, but prepping this nursery for our pea pod has been so much fun. David and I have loved every minute of it.
Needless to say, you won't mind if I share ten bajillion pictures of the space with you, right? : ) In that case... get ready, get set for a tour of our little guy's nursery! Quick note- I will be back 'atcha later this week with a full source list for everything you see in the room. Until then, you can check out all of my previous nursery posts for more information. Enjoy!
I've known all along that I wanted a navy blue + light blue + yellow + white color scheme without locking our little guy or ourselves in to just those colors. I know, I make no sense. Basically, I wanted to make the room feel organic but also not completely mismatched, all while bringing in all kinds of colors to stimulate our little man's senses. I knew those were some tough goals, but I think we made it work!
David and I still aren't sure that we plan to announce the baby's name on the blog, but even if we do, we want to at least wait until he's born to do so. That's why you see little dots on the banner on his wall- they're covering up his name : ) Censored to keep away all of the paparazzi, duh.
And to the right.
I'm head over heels for the family photo gallery wall we created above the changing table. It will create the perfect opportunity to show our little man his family every day!
Even though it's a small room, I found a nook for essentials like a laundry hamper and Diaper Genie.
Books are important in our house, so this is a space that will certainly grow as our little man does.
I still can't get over the gorgeous bead board ceiling that David worked so hard on. He's the man.
We kept the crib area pretty simple and sweet.
Of course, all of the stuffed animals and blankets draped around the crib will come off before our pea pod takes his first nap! Safety first.
I love how the rug ties the room together!
Ta da! I hope all of you love it as much as we do. And like I said above, I promise I'll report back later this week with a full source list for the room. Assuming I'm not too busy delivering the sweet little guy who will soon occupy this room! ; ) So feel free to ask any questions about the room that you'd like answered in the follow-up post.
Now who's ready to see a baby in this sweet little room? Meeeeee!
