I wanted a nursery that was gender neutral since we were not going to find out the sex of our baby. I also wanted it to be able to grow with our child and be able to service not only our first baby but possibly future children.
Found inspiration through Project Nursery, Pinterest, magazines...
-Crib : Babyletto Hudson purchased from West Coast Kids -Rocking Chair : The same one my mom rocked me in as a baby, reupholstered -Footstool : Homesense -Side Table: Homesense -Dresser : Kijiji find that I repainted -Crib Bedding and Owl Nightlight : Land of Nod (which should really start shipping to Canada for a lot cheaper) My grandparents treated me to these items! -Curtains and Bear (Wilfred) : Costco -Paint colors : Amazon Stone, Twenty Carat and Underwater Wonders (all Behr paints)
My favorite items in the room would probably be my rocker, crib bedding and the feature wall which I think turned out wonderfully. My mom's boyfriend spent about 4 hours just taping out the chevron pattern for me, and then him and my husband painted it which also took a lot of time.
Take your time finding things that you like. I began planning for this nursery basically when I found out I was pregnant and finished in at about 8 months pregnant. I always carried and still carry my paint swatches in my purse with me to make sure my colors go together.
