I'm SO excited to finally have gotten my vision for the nursery nailed down and to share it with you guys today! I went back and forth for so long on doing a neutral nursery to work for any future children or just to go all out in pink girly gloriousness. It wasn't until I stumbled upon this first image on Pinterest that my mind was made up. As soon as I laid eyes on that wall color, the artwork, the chandelier - I was dying over it all and my mind was immediately made up.
Through some Internet stalking, I was able to determine that the paint color in the above picture was Sherwin William's Intimate White. After a sample went up beautifully on our walls (always sample!!), we finally said goodbye to the black glow-in-the-dark handprints and hello to the sweetest baby pink.
Our next order of business was the big furniture. A crib, dresser, and glider. I had no doubts in my mind that I wanted to go with the IKEA Hemnes 8 drawer dresser because you simply can't beat that price. We purchased these pulls instead and it's going to look awesome. The glider was probably the thing I was most picky on. We're going to be spending a LOT of time in that thing so I wanted it to be comfortable. And cute of course ;) After tons of testing, we decided on the Kersey Glider in Linen. While it does recline, I am also going to get one of these Moroccan poufs to use as a foot rest.
For our crib, we went to Pottery Barn Kids and brought home the Emerson crib. Well. We went to set it up this weekend and did NOT like it. Their white color is called 'cloud white' and what that means in our house... an off white that looks more like a dirty gray. We were so bummed so it was back to the drawing board. I'm leaning towards this DaVinci Jenny Lind crib now- anyone have it? It's half the price so I really can't complain about that and it's a true white.
The rest of the room will start to come together once we have those big pieces in place. My initial light fixture crush hangs too low for our 8 foot ceilings, so I'm planning on order this beautiful flush mount instead. I'm majorly crushing on this Lulie Wallace print, but why must it be so expensive?! Still waiting for this rug to go on sale and I love this little side table with this lamp. Can't even wait to start putting everything together - I think it's going to be the sweetest room in the house!
