We moved into a new home while I was 26 weeks pregnant. I knew instantly this room would be our daughter's nursery. I loved the natural light flooding in. It was pumpkin orange when we moved in and we quickly painted it a soft pale pink. I wanted a calm peaceful space and a room our daughter go grow with.
I have since added curtains and the wall above the crib is reserved for her newborn pictures (yet to be taken).
I chose the color first and knew I wanted bright, calming and clean. I chose white as the furniture color next and the rest of the room came together with pieces I bought over several weeks. I used nursery ideas from project nursery and pinterest and kept the room simple. I decided against going with a specific theme, but rather incorportated pretty girly items as I found them and also included a few important family heirlooms and recycled items.
Clean, simple and fresh.

I love the reading nook in particular. I love books and am so happy I have kept all my books from childhood to pass on to my children. I also love the bedding.
Design a space that will grow with your baby and one that you love to be in because really the nursery is more for you than for your baby :)
