Hey friends! Unbelievably, I'm already six months along in this pregnancy with baby #2. Unreal, right?! Time flies. Before we know it, he'll be here and will be ready to enjoy his own room. Guess it's time to get crackin' and plan a nursery!
By the way, I was joking on Instagram about how I needed a gangster nickname (like HDawg) for baby #2 when someone suggested "Deuce." I kind of love it. It's hilarious and perfect for our second little bean. So I'm going to try it out for awhile... what do you think?! HDawg and Deuce, that's how we roll ; )
Anyways, my nursery scheme for baby Deuce started off with a bath mat. Seriously.
This is H's bath mat right now. The colors are off in this photo, but it's basically got a few shades of aqua, a few shades of yellow and some brick red and orange. I'm smitten. And have decided to design baby #2's room around it!
I'm thinking we'll paint the walls a light, bright neutral like the gray color pictured. I really want to get him a stained wooden crib, but will otherwise use mostly white furniture in the room. I also plan to use a lot of the same elements from baby H's room... the same mobile, a large off-white rocker and another custom quilt (that's already in the works!). But instead of navy and yellow like H's room, this room will focus on mainly aqua and brick red. And lots of other colors, as you can see... I'm a big fan of including many colors in a baby's room to stimulate their senses.
I just love the red striped area rug. And will definitely create some sort of aqua + red + yellow + orange patterned wall hanging of sorts. You know I have to DIY for this baby, especially after making H his scrapbook paper cityscape art, his color-blocked rocking chair and his DIY black out curtains.
I haven't decided on curtains yet... would love a non-geometric, non-nurseryish pattern but I haven't found exactly what I'm looking for yet. Any suggestions? What do you think? I'm still all over the place with sourcing, so if you can think of anything else out there that may fit this room, hit me up!
If you're curious, the source list for HDawg's room is right here.
