A room to grow into, is what I always envisioned for our baby. We are finally pregnant after four years of IVF treatments, and such I've had a lot of time to think about what would make the perfect nursery. It was important for me to have a quiet, calm and inviting space where baby, mom and dad could create special moments together.
Inspiration for this project began with those beautiful golden polkadots on our feature wall. I knew I didn't want a traditionally "girly" nursery, so I gravitated toward grey's with hope of adding feminine details (for ex changing out the knobs of the dresser, or the DIY mobile in soft pastel colours.)
I'm not sure I have a style. I've never considered myself "creative" in the traditional sense. That being said, I love to explore Pinterest and other sites for ideas and have found that I lean towards cooler colours, and clean straight lines.
