When I found out I was pregnant, I immediately started browsing Pinterest and trying to figure out exactly how I should decorate the nursery. Colby and I have a love of traveling and adventure and that was originally the direction I decided to go. As time passed, the room soon included a lot of nautical elements.
We started out with an empty shell. There wasn’t even carpet in this room. It was a hot mess. In September, we hired a wonderful contractor to come in and retexture and paint while putting in new tile, trim, and doors. Starting with a blank slate was so very helpful.
As the pregnancy progressed, I picked up things here and there. I truly lucked out because nautical/adventure/travel is very popular right now. I found most of the decorations at Hobby Lobby and Target. The curtains, airplane mobile, and bookshelf are all from Wayfair. The letters on the wall are from Etsy and the rug is from RugsUSA. The quilt on the crib is from Pottery Barn and my sister had the blanket on the rocker recliner made.
The dresser is super special. It was originally Colby’s grandmas. It was a little bit 80’s style when I started, but a fresh coat of paint and new knobs made it a fun feature in the room. Plus, it holds a ton of clothes and works fabulously as a changing table.
My sister gave me the little boat shelf that is perfect for storing time little boats. It is so cute!
This is hands down my favorite room in the house. Milo also seems to enjoy it a lot and I often find him dragging his toys into the nursery. It’s amazing how each little element came together to create such a perfect little room for our sweet Teddy.
I am happy to report that Teddy’s room is proving to be quite useful. He has been sleeping in his Rock N Play in our room across the hall, but we change all his diapers and feed him in the nursery. It is so nice to have a center location for all his essentials. I’m a bit of a neat freak and I’m surprised by how easy it is to keep everything in the proper location.
Anyone else have a nursery they need to design? I would love to help!
