Last week we transitioned Jonah to his crib. It was a bittersweet moment as I did not think that he would grow out of his bassinet so quickly.
His nursery is probably one of the more "complete" rooms in our house, and definitely our favorite. However, there are a few projects that I didn't get to before he arrived and have been putting off for three months now. This seemed like the perfect time to add those finishing touches to his room.
THE MOOD BOARD:
When we found out we were expecting, I had the idea of painting the nursery walls as part of the gender reveal, pink for girl and blue for boy. I've been wanting to add color to our home and thought this was the perfect room to start.
Choosing a blue, however, was a challenge. Although we were going very traditional with "blue for boy," I still didn't want the color to scream BABY BOY.
We finally decided on Sleepy Blue by Sherwin Williams, a very subtle blue with grey undertones. We painted the walls, ceiling, trim and doors that color. Walking into the room feels like stepping into a snow globe, in the best way possible.
I didn't give too much thought to the theme when I had decided on painting the walls, luckily the color was neutral enough that we could make most themes work. After seeing the sweetest baby mobile of woodland creatures on Pinterest, I couldn't stop thinking about it. A woodland theme was perfect for baby boys nursery - with woodland animals featured on his mobile, hamper, and stuffed animals, cozy textures, and organic patterns scattered throughout.
With this being such a special room, I knew I wanted to make a lot of the little things for it. I made his mobile and name banner just before he arrived (it totally slipped my mind to record the process but I will try to share some sort of tutorial)
Finally, I have two projects in this room before I can call it complete - Roman shades for the windows and a pleated lampshade for his floor lamp. I'll be sharing the process on Instagram stories so hope you can follow along!
