The Beginnings of a Nursery

It turns out one could probably lose years of one's life looking at the options for baby bedding. From basic solid sheets to the full custom bedding decked out crib there are thousands of choices in a huge range of prices. Yikes!

We definitely plan on finding out the gender of this baby (6 days!) but I am not really into the all pink or all blue explosion for our baby's nursery. Luckily that actually helped us narrow down our choices for decor because SO much of what is out there is uber girly or screams "little boy". I'm a big fan of great design without breaking the bank and I felt it was important to make practical choices without sacrificing style. Given that we eventually want two kids I decided all our furniture and major gear should be gender neutral so it can go the distance.

I ended up stumbling upon this Carter's bedding:

It is totally adorable and made putting the rest of the room together super easy. We will be painting the walls the green color to match and putting in a beige carpeting. The glider is a chocolate brown wide courderoy and the furniture is a medium wood.

It was just coincidence that the scrapbook paper I last used for a reveal at A Cherry On Top happened to have some of the same colors. I had a blast making these three pieces of wall art:

More nursery updates to come after we paint and get the carpeting!
