We were over the moon when we found out this past summer we were having a girl for our second child! Our son's nursery is very preppy, with a nautical theme incorporating navy, yellow & red. My favorite color is navy, so my first instinct was to go with pink & navy for our daughter's room. However, the more things started to come together, I completely ditched the navy and went with full blown pink & white. I wanted to create a nursery that was very sweet, girly & shabby chic.
Our son's nursery has all dark furniture so I wanted to go a different route and have Kennedy's nursery filled with all white decor instead. Especially since the pieces I already had, a nightstand and dresser, were white (my bedroom set from when I was a little girl). Also, instead of using maternity photos throughout her room I added the detail photos from our wedding day (shoes, wedding dress etc) to make it 'princess like' & feminine.
I would probably say my style is contemporary & traditional. I like things simple and believe that you don't have to spend a lot to have beautiful things in your home.

My favorite are her beautiful white curtains and pink rug. I decided to splurge on these two items and I'm so glad I did (I also waited until these big purchases went on sale). I also love the simple pink knobs I found to update her dresser with.
Take your time figuring out what you want your nursery to look like. Don't rush on big pieces or purchases. It takes time for everything to come together. I always find having a budget on projects really helps. I knew if I stuck within my budget I would make better buying decisions - while also making my husband happy. :)
