nursery planning!


Wooooo! We had a nice little break from Handmade Monday and tutorials will start again soon. In the meantime, I thought I'd share our "handmade" nursery ;) Okay, it's a stretch, but just go with it. We are DIYing a lot of the items in it, so it totally counts, right?

Right now, I'm stuck between two "themes" for Little One's nursery. Our color palette is pretty decided & based on our vintage globe, but anywhere there is pink, substitute it with orange. I want there to be pops of navy & teal for contrast, but all the fabrics that fit this criteria are more woodland in nature, which I also love. So, I'm still deciding between an "adventure" theme ((globes, maps, paper airplanes, hot air balloons, etc)) and a "nature" theme ((deer, wood grains, foxes, even buffalos!)).  Who knows, maybe I'll find a way to seamlessly tie in both together. ;)

Here's what I've come up with so far:

1 // 2 // 3 (DIY) // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9 (DIY) // 10 (already own) // 11(DIY) // 12


I'm making the bedding and possibly the curtains, so I basically have to pick a few "main" prints from the following selections and will go off of those for some solid accents. It's so tough to make decisions!





love.

  1. I love your choices! All of them. That grey & white woodgrain fabric is adorable! It's always so hard to decide when there is so much cuteness to choose from. Surely your nursery will be fabulous though.

  9. Oh my goodness! So cute. I had such a blast planning my sons room. Once we find out in a few weeks what we are having this time around I will be making some tweaks since our two will share. :) I can't wait to see the finished product. ;)

  14. So darling! I love the polka dot rug (I'm thinking about buying it for our own wee one's nursery!). Plus, we can argue with adventures and maps!!

  15. We are using the Ikea rocking chair for our nursery too! Do you have links or just the main website/store where you found some of your fabric? I'm really interested in the second row of fabrics- we are trying to do natural woodgrain print and nature stuff with chevrons (rug, curtains, blanket) and some girly accents! I love seeing your theme boards, can't wait to see it all put together!

    1. they're all from hawthorne threads. also -- we're not using this rocker, it was just a space filler :)
      ((i've heard terrible things about comfort, getting in & out of it, and the wooden arms being a no-go))
