After the shock started to wear off I started getting excited about this little bean being a little man! Let's be honest, part of the excitement came from knowing just what I would be designing for! While I have had to channel all of my nesting urges to packing, donating, and selling things we no longer need gearing up for our move in a couple months, I could definitely start thinking about this little guy's room!
Immediately I knew navy and white. Crisp and clean - sophisticated and something he can grow into. I don't usually do "themed rooms", but more color schemes. Ultimately we decided to add pops of orange for some bright fun flair! Of course I am excited about playing with pattern mixing too!
Here are some inspirations I have so far. All pins can be found on my Baby Room Pinterest Board
Navy walls, white curtains, with orange pops
Gallery wall with white frames - this will accent off of the navy nicely
I loved this idea for a memento gallery wall by using shadow boxes to frame
the first onesie and hospital photo
I have ALWAYS loved unframed canvas prints!
(this giraffe is also already a resident in Dablet's room!)
Lovely serine nursing corner (and the same giraffe!) I Love poofs for ottomans
Upcycled sign is a masculine touch with the wood - you could put anything on it
We will be re-purposing Dablet's crib and changing table to use again. The crib is the Catilina 3-in-1 and the Ultimate Changing Table, both from Pottery Barn Kids

However, I didn't want to keep the dark wood - but was scared to paint it with just any paint. I was SO excited to hear about Lullaby Paints! It's a baby safe paint specifically created for this purpose! I'm thinking of using this color to pop off the walls, but not be stark white!
Here's to daydream designing!!
