My Son-to-be Nursery | Work in Progress

details of the decor for my son-to-be nursery

I finally started to buy the decorative accessories for my son-to-be nursery. Today, I bought an adorable monster/alien theme wall decal kit by Nouvelles Images. I did not want to stick to one theme: the owl. Like you do with fabric patterns, I coordinate illustrations that share similarities in their forms and colors.

Look at how cute are the Raplapla dolls that I bought for him. They go well next to the Candela Tooli Rechargeable Lights that we received at our baby shower.

Another challenge is to find items that will contrast with the green wall. The next thing on my list is an airy mobile that I can hang from the ceiling. I look for a mobile that shares the aesthetics of the mobiles by Ole Flensted. If you know a modern style mobile that could fit within my design, do not be shy to share it.

  1. Ces moments, au cours desquels une maman prépare la venue de son bébé, sont parmi les plus beaux au monde. Ils resteront pour toujours dans tes souvenirs.

    Elle est très jolie la chambre de son bébé!

  2. I love the wall color you chose!

  3. It’s going to be an adorable room. I love the colours you chose. It’s something that won’t get tiresome when your son is a little older. The blue rocking chair is tres adorable!!!

    I visited the One of A Kind show in Vancouver in the fall, and I was so impressed with the wonderful Canadian-made children’s products. There were gorgeous blankets, toys, clothing. If you haven’t already seen the show, you might really enjoy the one in Toronto (http://www.oneofakindshow.com/toronto/)

    This is a wonderful nursery, and congratulations on the birth of your son!

    We used a mix of new and old items for our daughter’s nursery. Lately, we’ve been keeping that theme going and I found a new site for gently-used kids furniture. Here’s a list of some of their items: http://www.storkbrokers.com/buy/Used-Baby-Cribs/search/8/44/0

    And I’m in the process of getting some of our older items ready to sell there, too, giving someone else a chance to enjoy the furniture, too.
