A New Project

11.30.2009

I have a new project brewing at my house..... turning my guest room (or the office) into a nursery. Yes, that's right- I am pregnant. About 3 1/2 months today. Does that help explain why I've been MIA for the past couple of months? I've been exhausted and have put blogging on the back burner. But I'm back. I know it's a busy time of the year with Christmas coming up- but I promise to be a better blogger.

Now on to the nursery. I haven't thought much about it but it's starting to creep into my thoughts. Michael and I are not finding out what we are having (people have a hard time believing this) so I'll be designing a gender neutral nursery. I have a feeling that it won't look much different than if I did find out if I was having a boy or girl. I just love a neutral color scheme. The walls will more than likely be Monterey White by BM (to go along with every other wall in my house)- but everything else is up for discussion. If you are a frequent reader of my blog- you know what I like by seeing the photos/houses/etc. that I post. So, I would love any input on anything. If you've seen a baby bed bed or bedding or a chandelier that you think that I would like- please let me know.

I really do need help. I just went to my house file on my computer and opened my nursery folder and had two photos. TWO. Oh my goodness. I need some inspiration! Here is the nursery that I have saved...

That is so wonderful and so very exciting! Congratulations!!! I hope you are feeling well and will glide right through the remainder of your pregnancy. I'll have to pull a round-up of snapshots together for you. Be sure to check out Cookie Magazine's website if you have a chance. The publication unfortunately closed it's doors, so I don't know how long the site will be up. But they have many home tours on their Nesting Blog that will surely inspire!

All the best- nelya

Congrats, so exciting!!!

Congrats! I love the changing table in the first picture.
I had a gender-neutral room that I just loved- yellows and creams. When the baby was born I added blue curtains and got blue sheets, just enough color to tip the room in a "boy" direction.
I would like to say that I wish I didn't let my parents talk me into getting a white crib when I really wanted a dark wood one. Go with what YOU want during this very special time!

Red Door Home said...

What wonderful news! I know you will create a beautiful nursery.

Haven and Home said...

How exciting, a huge congrats to you and your husband!!!

I'm sure whatever design you come up with will be amazing, I cant wait to see more :)

nestegg said...

Yea!! Congrats Brooke!! You'll have a cute nursery no matter what. Stick with neutral but if you're going neutral you might as well go white. Key word: bleach. I'll send some of my pictures from my 'nursery file'- looks like it'll be a while until I crack those out! :)

Congrats!! How about this? It's something I've saved in my "imaginary children file" http://www.younghouselove.com/2009/09/reader-redesign-nursery-magic/

Ms. Bright said...

Congratulations!! How exciting! I have those same 2 pics in my nursery file, too! I love the idea of a yellow, white, gray and pale blue scheme. It's so posh right now that it would work for boy or girl.

Pink Lace and Cupcakes said...

Yay! Congrats:) Those nursery pictures are amazing! I love yellow and the window is too cute.

Very exciting, congrats! Out of all the things one needs/wants I think the most important is finding a crib company that has not had any recalls.

Love that nursery. I'm a big fan of gender neutral whether it's a boy or girl and the pics you have are great for inspiration. The wallpaper on the ceiling is great! Congrats.
