I find myself constantly trying to define my home decorating aesthetic. The problem is I often find myself making contradicting choices that don’t fit well into one exact style. I like a cottage feel, but not too country. I like modern pieces, but they can’t feel too harsh. I like vintage and eclectic, but not too bohemian.
My opposing aesthetics are top of mind right now as I am in the process of planning and decorating the nursery. I’m not relying on any certain theme for the room… I’m just trying to pick pieces that I love and am hoping that it will all come together in the end. Am I crazy?
I think I’ve finally settled on a crib…
Initially, I wanted all white furniture for the nursery, but I like that the espresso finish incorporated into this crib helps tie it in with the rest of our furniture throughout the house.
I found some great vintage children’s wall art that I am definitely using. I loved one image in particular (of course I forgot to take a photo of it before I dropped it off to be framed), but here are some of the other pieces that I got at the same time, to give you an idea.
The room we are using for the nursery has some great built in shelves, which I am planning to use for storage (obviously), but also as a way to display books, toys and a few framed pictures. As soon as I have made more progress, I’ll share pictures.
I’ll leave you with a ‘baby bump’ picture. I’m almost 30 weeks!
How can I get any bigger?!
We did a few shots where I actually posed for the camera, but this random candid shot showed my belly the best. 10 more weeks to go!
