7 Things I Love {Nursery Edition}

We took M shopping for a big girl bed yesterday…

To say she had fun is an understatement. In fact, I’m pretty sure she thought she was at some sort of playground πŸ˜‰

She made sure she opened and closed every drawer in the store.

We haven’t purchased a bed yet, but have a pretty good idea of what we’ll be buying within the next day or two.

I finally ended up picking out a paint color for M’s room and ordered some cute wall prints. I’m really happy with everything so far πŸ™‚ Now that I have a good idea of what M’s room will look like, its time to start focusing on the room for baby girl #2.

This is where I need your help. I just can’t seem to make up my mind with what I want. Our moving truck arrives Monday. The plan is to buy M her big girl bed tomorrow. Mr. Weekly Bite will paint M’s room over the weekend and set up her new bed. When the moving truck arrives Monday, M’s old crib will go directly into Baby #2’s room. We’re hoping the excitement of a big girl bed will distract her enough that she won’t Β really care that her crib isn’t her’s anymore. (keeping finger’s crossed)

For Baby #2’s room, I’ve been book marking several looks I like, but I’m so indecisive I can’t seem to make up my mind. I’d love to hear what you think πŸ™‚

Here are my top 7 picks.

1) Aqua, Pink, & Black Nursery

There are several things I love about this nursery from Lay Baby Lay. I really love the vintage feel, but my most favorite thing is the color of the walls combined with the pink and black accents. This would totally work in our new house. Of course I would change things up to make it unique, but the basics is what I love. My only concern is that the black & white chevron rug might be a bit harsh in person. The rug is very affordable, but I’m just afraid I would get tired of it. Β Thoughts?

2) Yellow, Blue, & Green Nursery

I looooove this nursery from! It has the pale teal walls that I like, we already have a white crib, and we can add our own unique touches to the room. What I really love is the rug… but it’s way out of our price range. I’ve been searching online for a similar type rug at a reasonable price, but have been out of luck.

3) Brights & Whites Nursery

I love the idea of adding “grown-up” touches to a nursery, that way the baby can grow into the room. I love the color combos here, as well as the rug and the lamp πŸ™‚

4) Little Girl Wonder Nursery

I’ve never been a purple gal, but this is just darling. I would most likely paint the walls the teal color shown above, and then use purple & pink accents like the prints. Not a fan of the rug though.

5) Aqua & Pink Nursery

I know this technically isn’t a nursery, but I really love the colors used here.

6) Subtle Girl’s Nursery

This is so pretty! Since I already have the white crib, I could paint the walls a pale teal and add touches of pink using the rug and other unique accessories. The only problem is the rug is out of stock πŸ™

7) Mint Green Nursery

I have nothing that would make this nursery work, but it’s just so pretty I had to post this picture. I love the combo of mint green with turquoise. So pretty!!


So what do you think? Which one is your favorite? Or are there two styles you would combine? I’m at a complete loss. If I could find the rug in picture #6 I would totally do that look. Or at least something similar πŸ™‚

    I love look #1! Actually when I do have a baby (and a girl;)) I want to do that. I already have the perfect aqua color on my wall to just add pink and black to. Pratt & Lambert Makaha is one I have done that I LOVE! I actually did a shade lighter than it in another room since I loved it so much. A zebra rug might be cute in place of the black and white geometric :). I love decorating πŸ™‚

    Thanks for the tips! I need to check out that paint color πŸ™‚
    And you’re right, a zebra rug could be really cute!

    These nurseries are ridiculously cute. Kind of makes me wish I had a little one of my own πŸ˜€

    I Kim of want this to be my grown up room stuff! So cute!

    Why not do the 1st room decor and color and instead of the black and white rug, use the rug in the # 4 Little wonder nursery?

    Thanks Danielle! That’s what I’m leaning towards, but maybe use the rug in nursery #6 once its available for order again πŸ™‚

    #1 is adorable! I love it! (well, they are technically all adorable)but I love black + aqua so had to go with that!

    These are all gorgeous. For some reason I really like the pink + aqua combo.

    So, my vote is for #7. That is the cutest color…I’m loving mint green!

    M is absolutely beautiful. And U are too. πŸ˜‰

    I really like #2 (but then, my daughter’s room is blue and green, so I’m biased!) and I do like the rug in #4, as well as elements of #3–the sunburst clock, aqua throw pillow and tulip pendant lamp. Whatever combination you do decide upon, I am sure your new daughter’s room will be lovely.

    I’m loving #2. Can’t wait to see what you end up with. πŸ™‚

    How is M always SO adorable?! I love #1 but maybe it is too girly? So maybe 2 is best.

    M looks like she is having a lot of fun shopping for her bed πŸ™‚ Do you mind sharing the name of the store in the second picture? I’ll be soon in need of a big girl bed too πŸ™‚

  15. Estela said on June 2, 2011 at 11:44 pm

    Hi Chris, the store is called Children’s Land in San Diego πŸ™‚

    I love #2 also. I think your should use the rug from #3 in #2’s design and it could work. Good luck–can’t wait to see the final product!

    I absolutely love #2!!! You could try finding a rug from an online sample sale, I saw in my email that HauteLook has rugs on sale today πŸ™‚

  18. Estela said on June 3, 2011 at 12:58 pm

    Thanks Lindsay! I’m off to check out HauteLook πŸ™‚

    I think I like 1 the best (minus the rug) and then 2 is SO cute as well!

  20. Maryea {Happy Healthy Mama} said on June 3, 2011 at 8:56 pm

    Wow this is really a tough choice–they are all super cute in different ways. I think #1 is my favorite, but I’m unsure of the rug, also. I like that it’s black and white, but the print might be a bit too much. Good luck!
