We started with a very basic builder-beige guest bedroom. We decided to add board and batten and crown molding to add some interest to the space. Once I settled on a gray, pink and white color scheme, things started to fall into place from there.
My overall decorating style is contemporary, traditional, with some coastal/nautical touches.

My favorite items are the bedding and curtains. It was really important to me to get just the right shades of pink, so I splurged a bit on these items and they're absolutely perfect.
My advice is to take your time when looking for just the right pieces. If you rush to get everything done by the second trimester, you'll probably end up settling for some things you're not totally in love with. Take your time and the pieces will fall into place. This also applies to getting the best prices - if you're patient you can catch the rare sale from places like Serena & Lily and RH Baby & Child.
