I’ve been meaning to write this blog since I was pregnant and decorating the nursery for my baby girl. Well life happened and my baby girl is now 6 months and I’m just getting to write this blog. There are several little things I still need to add but here goes.
Inspiration for the room: I wanted bold colors because I’m not a fan of pastels. My Babe didn’t want a “pink princess palace” (my favorite color is hot pink). We both wanted a modern nursery that could easily be a toddler’s room as well. I didn’t want something all matchy-matchy and I wanted to utilize different prints and bring them all together. With those things in mind I set out to create the ideal world for our little girl. I finally decided I wanted the colors to be grey white and yellow with splashes of hot pink.

Nursery Decorating Tips: Google was my best friend if I had an idea I would search for inspiration all over the interwebs. I bounced my ideas off of my significant other and he would offer suggestions to make that idea come together. The other thing I did was give myself plenty of time to let the magic happen. I started the nursery in October, baby girl wasn’t due until January but I wanted the bulk of the work done before she arrived, before the holidays and before I got so big and tired.

My Babe did such a great job installing the LEDs.
