Since we found out that we are expecting a little boy I have been going crazy online browsing bits for the nursery. Of course I know I'm not even half way through this pregnancy yet, but it is expensive especially with a toddler and Christmas on the way too! I like to be prepared and always have things planned in advance.
I knew that I wanted a pretty neutral nursery for either a boy or girl so my picks could be for both really. There's something about neutral furniture and accessories that I just love and I wanted it to run with the decor from the rest of the house. I will be adding little touches to the room which I'm sure will be blue. I'm really debating whether to keep the walls plain white or cream and adding wall decals to one side to create a feature wall. I really love the triangle and dot craze that is going on but not sure if I could pull it off or if I'd get bored of it pretty soon. The round wicker basket will be used for some of his blankets and soft toys so they aren't stuffed in the wardrobe and I thought it would look cute in the corner of his room.
The room which will be the nursery has a built in wardrobe which is great as it means we don't need to buy one. I'm not sure how I'll organise the inside yet but I'm thinking lots of wicker baskets to keep smaller bits organised and I might install another clothing rail to make use of some of the space.
I love this cloud cot mobile, after browsing Etsy for days I finally decided on this one, but I have seen a few others which I like so I may change my mind. I think it goes really well with everything else and will look great above the cot.
I didn't have a rocking chair in the nursery with Amelia, I didn't really see the point. But this time as I will be wanting to use the cot when he's younger instead of from a year I thought it would be a good idea to add some extra comfort. We've not got a lot of space to work with as the nursery is our spare room but I'm sure we can make enough room for storage.
I will be posting updates on the progress over the next few months and can't wait to show you the finished look. I have lots of other ideas such as personalised bits and finishing touches too. I have ordered quite a few of the items above apart from the big items such as the cot and chest of drawers which I will order once I finally clear out the room.
