Back before baby number two was on the horizon, I put together a thoroughly girly nursery design board. Now that there’s at least a 50% chance of actually being able to make it happen, I’ve tweaked it a bit – partly because some things weren’t available any more, but also because we’re going to stick with the existing wall color now rather than painting.
I found a substitute rug for the Pottery Barn Kids one in my original design – this one from Dash & Albert. I think I love it even more, and the best part is that it’s quite a lot cheaper – $104 for a 4×6 (I think the PB one was $300).
Speaking of the original design (in case you’re not sick of seeing this board!), here it is again…
I wanted to keep a similar feeling but without the wall color. I think it works, although there are a few things in the original design that I couldn’t squeeze into #2 that I probably still want to keep – namely some of the artwork and that cute little owl lamp. The only reason I took the lamp out is because I couldn’t find it online anymore, but I’m going to do a bit more searching before I give up on that one. And the crib might end up staying wood-toned, because I’m not sure how safe it would be to paint a crib yet. I do love the turquoise though!
Now I’ll shut up about it for at least 3 weeks until we know for sure whether we’re actually having a girl. Be prepared for a lot of similar idea shooting in more manly colors if it turns out to be a boy!
