Our Nursery

If you follow me on Pinterest, or if we’re friends on Facebook, then you probably know that I’m pregnant!  Yes, Andrew and I are expecting a little boy in July. baby boy items

(What we brought home from our first trip to Babies ‘R Us ;)! )

I’ve been gathering ideas for the nursery, and I plan to use a navy, green, and white color scheme.  I have wanted to bring navy into our home since I wrote my two navy posts (part 1 & part 2) a year ago, and we decided this was the perfect opportunity.

Here are a few rooms I pinned for inspiration.

Carousel Designs has great nursery bedding options, and we've been looking through all of the navy choices.  There are so many fun patterns to choose from, but here are two that we like.

For the window treatments, I wanted to find a fun fabric that would incorporate both the navy and the green.  This geometric pattern of random blocks in a variety of colors I think will be perfect.

We have a ceiling fan in the room that I’d love to replace with a fun light fixture.  Our ceilings are 8’ and Andrew is 6’5”, so any new light fixture can’t hang too low.  I've found three choices that I really like.  What do you think?

I didn't want to have too much of a theme in the room, but we do like these whale and nautical sheets.  They'll be a cute addition to the room, and something that will be easy to change out as he grows older.

I also found these artic animal prints on Etsy that are really adorable.  A penguin, a narwhal, a whale, and a polar bear, and you can choose the colors you want!

Those are the ideas I've gathered for Baby Boy Green’s nursery so far.  I’m still working on finding a rug, and we also want to find a dresser that we can paint and turn into a changing table.  The nursery has been fun to plan and I can’t wait to see it start to come together.
