Well, now that we know it’s a girl!
I have been turning my thoughts to the nursery.
I have some ideas, but I’m still really unsure of what to do.
So, I thought what better place to put my ideas together and get advice then from you??
First things first. The room is painted this deep blue that we LOVE and only painted last year when we moved in, so it seems silly to buy more paint and redo everything.
The mister says our baby girl won’t care if her room is blue…but I want to make sure that if we do leave it this color, that we add lots of girly touches.
Now, by girly, I DO NOT mean light pink and pastels because that’s just not my thing. I’m pretty sure Peanut isn’t a fan either.
But, I want it to be clear that the room belongs to a GIRL.
Am I crazy? Asking too much?
(Don’t answer that…)
We just got these amazing bunting curtains from IKEA and I promised the hubby that they would look amazing in this room.
And they do.
But..I’m not loving the red. All the colors I feel like I can work with, but not the red.
Would it be crazy if I painted the red flags hot pink?
Anywho, here’s what I’m thinking at the moment.
I just love them. Think they’re adorable.
These are from a store in Mall of America called the Afternoon.
Yes..I bought one.
I’m also thinking I want to paint a white tree.
Yes, this one is ah-mazing.
I really like the shape of this one.

Plus, they work really well together.
Or we could have the whole jungle. 😉
I also just really like brightly colored nurseries.
(Hello…have you met me?)
This is one of my all time favorite nursuries.
I love the birch trees and the bright colors.
So..what should I do?
My bestie recommended hot pink to use with the blue. And then maybe pull out some more colors from the curtains like orange, lime green, etc.
Oh, and we’re also considering putting in faux wainscotting.
But I’m just not sure.
