Early Nursery Plans

I know that it's a liittle early to be thinking about such things, but I'm WAY too excited to wait!  I have the basic ideas for little Hayes's nursery in mind.

I started off thinking that I wanted a very neutral nursery.  Something along these lines...


But, I ended up finding my inspiration from my favorite nursery of all time (which I blogged about here) from Joni at laybabylay.  If you've never seen her blog, take time to look through each post.  Each nursery will blow you away!  This nursery happens to be a girl's nursery, so I'm going to change things up a bit.

Here are a few images for my inspiration!

My favorite parts of the nursery are (well, all of it, but if I HAD to choose):
  • the aqua blue walls
  • the black and white chevron rug
  • the Jenny Lind spindle crib
  • the French provincial dresser
  • the angel wings above the mirror
  • the gorgeous monogrammed valance panels
 I plan to use a shade of orange as an accent color instead of the pink in this room.  I would also love to have a beautiful sitting chair as well as a rocker like this nursery, but our room is too small for that.  She also has a tall black dresser (not pictured) in addition to the French provincial one, but we don't have room for both.  I don't want to overcrowd the tiny space!

I'm on the hunt for the perfect fabric for the crib.  Not sure what I want yet, but I'll know it when I see it!  If you experts have any ideas, let me know!

So there you have it!  There's a sneak peek into what I've been working up for Hayes!  Right now the future nursery is filled with items for our yard sale (read about it here in case you missed it!).  After we clear out that stuff, we can get crackin'!  Can't wait to get started! Pin It
