We will cover Nursery & Kids Bedrooms during January 2011. To kick it off, I decided to give you a sneak preview at the decorative elements of the nursery of my upcoming baby boy.
I believe that a nursery should be fun. My design idea was to select a bolder color than pastel as long as it still feels peaceful. Plus, I did not want to go for the obvious blue nursery; especially since my husband gave me a light blue Eames molded plastic rocking chair. Instead, the color scheme of the DwellStudio’s Owls Sky bedding inspired me. I opted to paint the walls this nice fir stand green (P5036-41 by Para Paints). It is not obvious on my photo but the green on the walls is slightly paler than the green of the bedding pattern.
The room will be brighten by the pure white crib and the 3-drawer changer. Instead of a closet, I will put a pear stained wood armoire that used to be on my bedroom. It will be located on the opposite wall of the room. The pear stained wood should looks great next to great.
I have to see the Cameron 3-Shelf Bookcase first (I am afraid that it is too creamy white) but I am looking for something similar. It is not easy to mix furniture from several collections and with different finishes. Therefore, I will wait to see what how these pieces look in the room before I make my final decision.
It is still a work in progress. I will get a better idea when the movers bring part of the furniture in his bedroom. The rest will be delivered in a week or two.
