Decorators Delight

Now that the word is out about the upcoming baby I can chat more freely about the questions that keep me up at night. One of them being, How do I decorate a baby's room for a baby when we aren't going to find out the sex? Actually that doesn't keep me up at night, but it's something I think about. I mean really let's be honest, we aren't really decorating for the baby, it's more for our own aesthetics and tastes. The room doesn't need to be neutral does it? How about lots of color & fun prints? I recently purchased my first baby room item, this print of You Are My Sunshine by thewheatfield on etsy. I love the colors and notice the little giraffes, my favorite animal.

I just want my baby to be surrounded by color, cheerful brightness from the start. This is another room that I am drawn too. I think you could tone it down so it isn't so pinky for a girl, and add some fabrics that might be considered more neutral?



(Oh Dee Doh)

There are a lot of options and a lot of winter DIY projects that lie ahead of me. And I'm excited!!!

Love the sunshine wall hanging! So cute! We had to actually take things off the wall and tone things down for seth because he was so overstimulated he would just cry and cry and had a hard time falling asleep...he couldn't have a mobile either for the same reason. *SIGH* But he was definitely a high needs baby! Love all the patterns in that room!

CONGRATS!!! So exciting! I think a baby's room with lots of colours is a perfect choice. I would just wouldn't incorporate too much pink.

You are so freaking talented. I have totally lost my baby nursery mojo. This is where I plan to find my inspiration.

And Sabrina, my Grandpa used to sing You are My Sunshine to us all the time. Then when he had dementia, my aunt and I sang it to him all the time...I'm totally getting that.

Love you and your peanut.

I just realized that saying you're talented may lead you to believe I'm thinking you made all of the above.

I should have added, "I know your baby's space will be THE BOMB" because of your talent.

Done explaining something I most likely did not need to explain :)

GET OUT OF TOWN!!! I swear we are sisters from another mother? or something like that. I suppose it will be no surprise given our past of "I have that too!"s that just this week I spent time searching for this very same artist......I knew she was from Asheville but I couldn't find her site until now. I just placed a rather large order that surprisingly did not include You Are My Sunshine, though that is prolly the song I sang most often to my girlies! I swear our tastes are IDENTICAL!!! That wall color looks like what we had in our nursery before we moved and the baby grew up to be hormonal pre-teen:(
