Nursery Visions

I'm not sure how you all were able to put together a vision of how you wanted your first nursery together....how to capture the feel you wanted to create, but mine fully relies on the piece of material I showed you last day.  Not too girly, not too baby-ish, something fun, but not so bright that the baby would be overwhelmed by her room! Too much thought maybe? Haha, well, I saw this material and that was it....my inspiration was complete!

Here is a sample picture from the website:

Its the perfect mix of colors that can work for a boy or girl, so as long as I still like it....I can mix it up when we have a boy(Lord willing) with the darker greens and blues while for this one I can pull out the pinks and lighter green and yellow to be softer and girly!  You gettin' my vibe??

Here are a few more inspiring pics for the baby room...course we'll see how far we take the painting the walls and such, but I can't wait to see it all come together in the house....and SO excited that we can really put effort into it since we'll hopefully be in the new place for a few babies:)  And since Mom is returning to help out with some house projects in January before baby arrives, there should be a few transformations coming then!  To make up for my slacker months recently;)

Here we go...

You all getting my drift here??? What did you use to bring your nursery together? A specific piece or focal point, color, shapes.....so much to use!!

Promise to take pics and share on the rest of the nursery projects thus far and hopefully some christmas projects too!!

Have a great day everyone!

Those look like great ideas Krista! Why wasn't there a belly shot w/ this post?? lol. I'm excited for you guys.

For our nursery, it was based around some neutral bedding I had found (although I had an alternate vision if it was a boy, lol). We don't know when we might be selling this place and moving someplace else (bigger? hopefully?) and since it's only a 2 bedroom it needs to be able to be staged as a 2nd bedroom/office so the walls/curtains etc aren't very babyish, but the stuff I put up on the walls is.
As well, I wanted to let you know about a site called Polyvore. You can create a 'mood board' with items from the internet (here's ours: http://www.polyvore.com/babys_room/set?id=17005283 ) by using their clipper tool: http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/clipper. So just create an account, install the clipper, and then anytime you see an item on the web, you click the tool on your browser toolbar and then click on the image in the browser. Make sense? You can email me at jenniferdewell@gmail.com if you have other questions!

Ooh I love the polka dots! So cute and moderne.

I had a style I wanted. That was all I knew for the babe's nursery. Did it come together? Sorta. I do like her room. Some of it doesn't really completely "go". Whadaya do.
