Room for the Little One.

I haven’t put a lot of time into thinking about how I will decorate the nursery for our little one yet. We are going to find out the gender soon, so I guess I am waiting until then to really start the planning! To be honest, I don’t usually like how nurseries are decorated and I haven’t even found many online that I really love, they are usually a little overdone for my taste and a lot of them look the same. I don’t want to use many ‘for baby room only’ items – I want the baby’s room to feel like an extension of my home… this also makes sense economically as you can reuse a lot of the pieces as the child grows. Anyways, I thought I would leave you with some of the kids rooms that have been inspiring me lately.

I also just found the blog Lay Baby Lay to be an incredible source of nursery inspiration. Joni is a new mother and does up the most beautiful inspiration boards. Below is an example, but you really should go check them all out when you have a few free minutes! I’ll be sure to do one of these for my nursery once I am a little more sure of what I want – I’m still busy gathering ideas at this point.

Dustin and I are off to the States tomorrow for a little day-trip to buy more vintage goodies for Twig Home! Can’t wait! What are you up to this weekend? Whatever you do, I hope it is wonderful! See you Monday!

    I especially like the butterfly garland (I must make one). I didn’t like the look of gliders for Naomi’s room, so we used our Ikea Ektorp armchair, which I love, and we still use every day to read to Naomi. It was great for nursing her, with it’s nice big arms rests. We also got the matching footstool. I recommend getting a footstool for nursing. We still use the footstool to lay her down to put her sleep sack on her. (And it has storage, too, which is great cause her room is small).
