I have not been a very emotional pregnant woman. I mean, I've cried over some things, but not at the drop of a hat, like some say they do. But when I think or talk about little man's nursery, I get a bit choked up.
I am loving the idea of having a boy. I love saying "my boys" and thinking of all the ways our little man is going to look up to his dad and all the things he's going to learn from him. Chris is an adventurer. If he sees a rock wall, he wants to climb it. A body of water-- he wants to jump in. He's hiked long stretches of the Appalachian Trail and spent a month on an expedition in Alaska. He's got story after story about his months spent in Fiji and I trust him completely when we venture into the woods.
And I hope that our son will pursue an adventurous life like his papa.
So, the nursery "theme" is going to be centered on the adventures I hope our boy has throughout his life. Bright and eclectic and inspiring.
>> The Katie Daisy print is the catalyst behind this theme. I'm so excited to see what our kiddo is going to do with his life.
>> To bring a little bit of a manly feel, we'll throw in a few industrial touches-- maybe an old sign letter like this one from The Vintage Wall, some wire storage and a brightly colored desk lamp (we have one that I might spray paint!)
>> We put this gray BabyMod crib from Walmart, of all places, on our registry. It' s a fabulous price, has a non-toxic finish and is made from sustainable pine wood.
>> A brightly patterned crib sheet like this one from SweetBobbins would be pretty adorable.
>> We already have this ZigZag rug from Urban Outfitters and the Poang chair from IKEA and I think they'll work perfectly in the nursery.
I also love all of these art prints from Etsy--
>> adventure print from FlourishCafe
>> over the sea print from lauraamiss
>> today is the day print from amandacatherinedesigns
>> you are my greatest adventure print from gusandlula
>> antique world map from AncientShades
I've also got some fun DIY ideas in my noggin. I'm going to make a mobile for above his crib and I'd love to find either an affordable or easy DIY moroccan pouf!
Obviously we have to wait until our move before we even know what kind of space we'll have. Can't wait to see how it comes together!
