The light aqua and taupe nursery color palette create a calming, spa-like space for both baby and mommy. I can't wait to bond with my baby in this comfortable and soothing nursery.
Blue is my favorite color and is used as an accent throughout the rest of our home. I wanted the nursery to "fit in", therefore choosing aqua blue and taupe was a no-brainer. I didn't want the nursery to have a specific theme (nautical, safari, etc), so I focused on colors/patterns I love, adding a few "dog" accents to make it feel more like a baby boy's room.

The glider! I followed my friend's advice and chose a very comfortable glider with an ottoman. She reminded me that MANY hours will be spent in this room, so make it comfortable! I also love the personal touches, like the framed maternity photos and the little rocker from my grandmother.
Keep the room simple. After baby comes, there will be a ton of things like toys and baby items that might work against your nursery design. If you keep the room simple from the beginning, it'll look less cluttered later on.
