Naturally since finding out we were expecting, I've had our baby's first room on the mind. I had a pretty clear vision of the large furniture that fit whether we had a boy or a girl, and I had a rug picked out for each sex. Once we found out BOY I've been filling in the gaps.
As a reminder, we are in a two-bedroom apartment. The second bedroom is currently my office, and also our "hobby" room with our guitars and art supplies and such. Most of the office pieces will move to our bedroom (more on that later) so we'll have two small bookshelves left over plus what you see below. We're using the curtains I already have.
*note - we haven't really started purchasing yet, so some elements may change. Dresser shown is an example of what we're looking for at the flea market. Glider is similar to one we chose that I can't find an image of online. I already hate that blue pouf I showed (hormones, haha), so that will be changing. But this is a pretty good idea of the direction we're heading!
I'm not a fan of "themed" rooms (all the pregnancy forums I've peeked at are debating "under the sea" or "rodeo" themes, etc. and I run away!). All the nurseries I've designed for clients have been theme-less, but with a basic color scheme. Mine doesn't even have that... loosely red and blue, I suppose. But I'm pretty confident that it will come together and be a fun and engaging place for our little guy. And with renting, can move to our next home with minimal changes.
So excited to have it start coming together! Hope to start ordering pieces (we got the red shelf already) in a month or two. Unless nesting kicks in early...
