Make Room for Baby

Lately, I've been busy prepping one of our upstairs bedrooms for our new arrival. We know we are having a girl but I wanted to keep the look-and-feel of the nursery fairly neutral. Instead of covering the room in pink and pastels, I decided to use mint, orange and shades of blue as the color palette. 

We also wanted practical furniture that would grow with the baby and wasn't necessarily just baby furniture. So instead of an expensive baby changer, we opted for the Ikea Hemnes dresser in a white stain which has roomy drawers and a top long enough for a changer and all the diaper accessories. I added World Market mint knobs to the dresser for a little extra pop. 

Dan's parents bought us the babyletto Hudson crib and it'll be delivered any day now! The crib is reasonably priced and converts from a crib (4 mattress levels) to a toddler bed and daybed. I loved babyletto's style so much that I even chose them for our bedding - babyletto Fleeting Flora collection

My mom and I used the colors from the crib skirt to create a baby quilt pattern. We picked 8 different fabrics in bright, colorful patterns to make the quilt and we'll use leftover pieces for art, pillows, and curtains in the room.

Lastly, we are going to get a neutral glider for the corner of the room. Instead of an ottoman, we're going to pick a knitted pouf that can easily be a footstool or be moved around the room to make an extra seat. Once we have everything together, we'll share photos of the big reveal!
