My pregnancy is just whizzing by and I’m now starting to panic that we don’t have everything bought or decorated. Don’t get me wrong we’ve done a lot of decorating in our house these last few weeks. But, I’m quickly heading into my last trimester and I’d love to hurry up and get our nursery finished so there’s somewhere to store all our baby’s ever-growing belongings. Her clothes are currently folded up in bags upon bags around the room. I’ve been collecting lots of pretty things to decorate the space with too. So, I thought it’d be a good idea to gather all my inspiration for the nursery, so I can finally make some final decisions. Planning how to decorate the nursery is so exciting, yet so daunting. I want to create what I have imagined in my head – whatever that may be!
When I first found out we were pregnant, I envisioned our nursery to be monochrome and pretty simplistic. Fast forward to finding out that we were having a girl and I now want everything to be pink! We’ve settled for a blush pink with white and grey accents – which are my favourite colours! It’s almost impossible to find the most perfect blush pink paint. I may have finally found the perfect shade from Crown’s Period Collection in Ballet Shoes – it looks nothing like the swatch on our walls though. I’d still like to grab a couple more testers before making our final decision at the weekend, when the decorating starts! Then we can start ordering and building up the furniture.
Something else I’ve always imagined in our nursery is a feature wall of wallpaper. We don’t have any wallpaper up in our home, but I’d really like to have a pattern or illustration to add some detail to the room. I didn’t want anything too bold, as I’d love for it to grow with our child. I’ve now got to whittle down my four favourites and finally order the rolls. I only want one wall wallpapering where our cotbed will sit in front. We’re using our smallest spare room for the nursery, as it’s the perfect shape too.
Anyone else recently decorated their baby’s nursery or panicking like me to get theirs finished?
