Now that Simon has arrived and I have finished taking pictures of the nursery, I am finally ready to show you!
If you’ve been reading over here then you know I have been working on this room for months… back in March I was creating the ever-evolving, never-ending checklist which I am proud to say is completed and I couldn’t be happier with how the room turned out. Simon will be sleeping in a bassinet in our room for awhile, but having the room done & ready is such a good feeling.
We change him on the changing pad in his room throughout the night… & T and I have both sat in the glider to rock him to sleep… His little outfits are hung up in the closet & folded in the drawers…And the art and photos are hanging [untouched for now!] on his cute little pegboard gallery wall.
It is definitely a happy place for us (and Simon, too, I hope)!
The walls were gray to start with & after removing the guest bed, dresser & nightstand, it was go-time! If you remember my mood / inspiration board for the nursery, I decided to go with navy, green & gray as the color scheme. I wanted a bright and bold look and achieved this through mixing fun patterns & textures!
