The moment we found out that our bambino is actually a bambin-a, I started plugging away on nursery ideas. The goal is to give her a sophisticated and comfortable room that isn't off the rack. Here's what we've come up with so far.
We have walls in Sherwin William's Dorian Gray. The paint is up and it looks beautiful. Even better than expected. Love it when that happens!
Crib...we are thinking we'll go with the Jenny Lind crib in white. It is just so clean and classic, and the price is right at around $200. You can purchase this at a number of different stores, but Baby Braithwaite has it and I like to support local businesses when possible. Plus, that store is amazing and it's an excuse to buy something else on the same trip, ha!
The bedding that I have my eye on is the Colette from Serena & Lilly. It is clean and simple, with just a touch of pink. Perfection.
How precious is the crib skirt. I love that little gray peek-a-boo dart.

I was literally JUST wishing for a pale pink poof for the nursery. Believe it or not, a sale popped up today so I ordered one in Papaya from Joss & Main! I'm obsessed with these. I recently bought the brown leather poof for the living room in our new house. The quality is great and they are much more affordable (at about $155) than some of the others I've seen.
The white ruffle curtains from Pottery Barn Kids immediately spoke to me. I love that they are girly and crisp. Plus they are blackout drapes. Maybe that's wishful thinking...
We've got an antique children's bookcase (currently used as a china cabinet in our mini dining room) that my mom and I are going to paint one shade darker than the walls. We'll paint the inside a turquoise to make the library pop. We also have the most precious three-mirrored children's dresser for some drawer space that has been used by all the girls in my family...my mom, my sister and me. It's painted turquoise (it's been every color under the sun) and rather than change it, I think it will be a nice color addition to the room. We have an old wooden rocker to use too.
My mom is planning on painting a piece of artwork to hang over the crib. On Pinterest, I found a boy's nursery with a southwestern feel that was absolutely adorable. A large painting of a steer was placed over the crib. A steer is a little too masculine, but we thought about a sheep. I'm thinking we can copy the below and change the colors a little bit!
Will post pictures once we get moved into the new house and started. Oh, I don't plan on having a changing table. So many moms have said they just change the baby on the floor. Am I making a mistake?
