Ok ok, so I know it’s early AND I don’t even know the gender of my baby yet, but it’s not too early to dream and think up ideas right?
I posted awhile back about nursery colors and designs I like and I can’t help but think more about it now. The sad thing is, I have NO decoration sense and trying to find things that match, and coordinate and look cute all at the same time is nearly impossible for me.
I’d love to find a unique style to make the room but it’s not easy with my lack of decoration skills.
My poor husband seems to think we’re going to decorate the room with Jazz jerseys and BYU helmets… Sorry, even if it is a boy that’s not happening. I’ll reserve a Man Cave for hubby at our next place.
I’m not sure if hubby would go for this, but I’ve dabbled with the idea of getting help… Oh yea, I mean professional help. Prices for designers are out of this world though and since I’m not making movie star money, I’m not getting a movie star designer.
I have a few friends who stage and decorate homes so I’m secretly hoping they’ll give me a tip or two and help me out. I also think I’ll flip through magazines and come up with a copy-cat design seeing what colors and shapes I like then try to mimic it in our nursery.
Here’s what I have to start with… A queen bed (we’ll leave in there cause it’s sooooo comfortable) and a crib. Luckily the woods on both match, so I know I want to get a dresser and/or shelf space that has the same espresso-colored wood. I also don’t really want to paint the room because we’ll have to paint it back before we move out of this town home. I’m thinking about some vinyl options or something fun like that. Ideas? This is the crib I got! The won I won was discontinued at Sears so we got to pick another and I chose this one! It’s by Delta and it changes into a toddler bed, day bed, and full size bed!Also, if you’re looking for something that’s in between hiring a designer to come to your home to decorate ant pay thousands of dollars, and just making it up yourself… Check out iBaby Interiors.
