We wanted a modern baby. Not to babyish not too modern. Just enough that he can grow with it for years to come.
Our project inspiration was a wall that we saw in a magazine... a wall with stripes. From there we just started adding our own ideas.
Our style is contemporary/modern.
We wanted and adult dresser with lots of storage. Came across this dress from Havertys (Eclipse Dresser #045001681) Very bold style yet clean look, and we knew that was the one! We wanted something that it will last for along time, not just a few years. Our first option for crib was a crib by Capretti Milano but it was pretty expensive and decided to go with something a bit more practical that will at least last a few years and bought the crib at Diapers.com (Babyletto Hudson 3-1 Convertible crib in 2 tone espresso/white) We wanted something unique that had 2 tone :-) Our rocking chair we purchased from Ikea (Poang Medium Brown Rocking Chair) , modern and loving it! It is so comfortable!
WE LOVE IT ALL! From the wall to the dresser, crib, rocking chair, accessories, everything :-). We had fun.
Get creative and do a lot of searching. It paid off for us and now have a nursery that we love!!!! :-)
