Alright, I need all you lovely ladies to put on your design hats. Not sure why, but I’m seriously struggling here. I’m going for a eclectic modern nursery and put together a few inspiration boards to get the juices flowing. Plus, I’ve been pinning away, but honestly I think it’s making the process harder. I love this, this, this, this, and this room. So let’s take a look at our room (sorry I took the photos at night).
We already had this dresser and moved it to the nursery. It will also double as the changing table.
The Crib / Wall Color
I love the white. We painted the walls Olympic Gray Beard. Not sure how I feel about it. I think it might be too light. Yay of nay? Side note: we’re replacing the carpet with hardwood floors this summer.
(and on the fence about them)
I bought a grey chevron rug during the RugsUSA black Friday sale, but feel as though it’s too big for the room and it’s cream and gray vs. white and gray. However, I’m leaning towards something like this or a kilim style instead which could possibly work with the elephant curtains below. Thoughts?
On a whim yesterday I went to Pier1 Imports and bought these curtains (similar). Not sure they will really work in the room, but I thought they were fun and playful. I also really like these, but our store has them with navy tassels and they could go with the chevron rug.
To-do’s/Still Need Purchase
Finalize — curtains, rug & wall color (possible repaint, ugh)
Window Blinds — We ordered samples from blinds.com today
Light fixture for the ceiling — no clue
Changing pad cover — of course the one I want is sold out online and in the store
Closet organization — we’re looking at this shelving unit from Ikea
Picture gallery above the crib — we’ve decided to print photos we’ve taken on trips and around Tahoe
Mobile — on the fence and open to suggestions. I like this one and feel it would be an easy DIY
Pouf/Ottoman — open to colors and suggestions woven, leather or canvas
Miscellaneous — hamper, curtain rod, additional shelving in room, side table (not sure if we have the room), possible prints from Esty like this or this, etc.
So that’s where I’m at and this kid is due January 30th. Ideally I would like to have everything done and finalized by the second week of January, but with the holidays I’m not sure that’s going to happen. Especially if I keep being this indecisive. I usually don’t have this hard of time making decisions… I would love any suggestions.
Thanks in advance!
