The other day I came to the realization that I’m over halfway through this pregnancy and we haven’t done anything to our spare room that will be the new nursery. Seriously…nothing. There’s still old furniture and random bits in piece from when it was storage, let alone all of the dresses and suits hanging in the closet. Oh man! Time to kick my rear into gear and get going on this sweet boy’s room!
So what’s the theme you ask? Seems like our theme is pretty much the up and coming popular one, camping/adventure. And I really don’t mind that it feels like everyone and their mom is doing it because that means more ideas for my Pinterest board and more product available to decorate. Bring it on! Also, with this theme, even my husband is excited for decorating. He was a boy scout growing up and he loves all things outdoorsy/camping.
Here’s what I have in mind:
For Mr. G’s nursery, I did the whole pastel, soft colors. This time I wanted something bold! Whites and grays will be the neutrals with pops of deep greens, mustard, and some blue thrown in for good measure.
Oh! How dreamy are these wooden walls?! Now, we won’t be going all out with a full wall but I definitely want an accent of it (like #3) because it’s just simply perfect.
What’s an adventure in the woods without an animal encounter or two? Faux taxidermy is my jam by the way, you may remember from THIS post, and those cardboard creatures are fabulous on the eyes and the wallet. Also, you know I’ll be DIY-ing a ton and I may have an idea up my sleeve for #3…just sayin’!
I can honestly say that even though Mr. G had a mobile that turned and sang little songs, we never used it. He had a sound soother giraffe from day one and still uses it to this day. This is why I’m going a much simpler route with RC’s mobile. No need for music or movement really, just something for him to look at and wonder.
And then there’s the art! So many amazing prints out there on Etsy, in stores like Hobby Lobby, and even free prints. So much amazing art for inspiration!
What do you think? I can’t wait to get going on this boy’s nursery! This weekend is our first step by getting all the old, unnecessary stuff out and bringing back Mr. G’s crib. What I love about this theme too, is that it’s something he can grow into. Some of the elements, like the mobile, won’t always stay but the room can grow with him until he tells us he wants something else.
