When we found out that Baby Provencher was on her way, I was so excited! And then I realized I had a very valid excuse to completely redecorate a room – and then Pinterest didn’t know what hit it. I searched the Internet from top to bottom looking for inspiration, and I shopped ’til I dropped (almost literally… pregnancy fatigue is real) and now we have our dream nursery and are so happy with it.
I picked the color scheme first. I adore the dark turquoise color you see on the accent wall… my obsession with it started while we were on our honeymoon in France. My husband and I were paddle boarding on the Mediterranean and I looked down into the water and saw that color, and I’ve been enamored with it ever since. I wanted to add a bit of a feminine touch to the space, so I paired it with a muted blush pink color along with lots of whites and natural tones so the whole space feels very open and inviting.

We started with a blank slate, removing everything from the room; I would recommend that to anyone... it's easier to fill it back up with exactly what you're envisioning instead of settling for a mishmash of items. This space used to be a guest room... see what it looked like here. Also, be sure to pick a color scheme first and then bring swatches (and also room measurements) out with you while you're shopping. This will avoid having to make a ton of returns, which are really annoying to do when you're super pregnant and just want to sit on the couch!
