Nursery Inspiration

*First off, thank you for the kind words and encouragement on yesterday's post. Some of your comments and emails brought tears to my eyes (GAH! hormones). It feels nice to know I'm not alone in the way I'm feeling. Anywho...
...........................................
Before I even knew I was pregnant I found myself scourging Pinterest from time to time in search of the perfect nursery. I soon realized I'm not a fan of themed nurseries. I'm not drawn to the Winnie the Pooh rooms nor nautical themes (not that they aren't cute, they simply aren't my taste!), but instead I found myself drawn to simple yet eclectic nurseries with novelty touches scattered throughout.  

For our little boy's room, we've decided on a gray and white color palette. I wanted to keep the space neutral and then add the cozier touches that bring some personality throughout.  Below are some of the items and accessories I hope to incorporate.


We are fortunate enough to have some of the larger pieces already (the Jenny Lind crib and Ikea dresser [which are HUGE $$ savers as well!]) and we already have a pretty good start on our little man's library! I look forward to searching for those smaller pieces though to really pull the space together!  

Who knew designing a space for someone else could be so much fun!? ;)

I love it! You have excellent taste, friend. Totally love the crib. Is it terrible that we haven't bought one yet? Ah. So much to do!

LOVE the stuff you have pinned for the nursery. We have the IKEA dresser for Henry's room (in grey) and we use it as his changing table as well (with a changing pad of course). It works GREAT. Perfect height. And lots of drawer space.

This is all so cute!!! You should totally make the alphabet blocks yourself. I think they sell plain blocks at hobby lobby and other craft stores (:

Too kind.
