Belly and I are feeling pretty ready for the next stage – babyhood!!! We’re 9 days from our due date and feeling good. Baby is working those little muscles and moving around like crazy and Momma is doing quite a bit of napping and smoothie making. We’re thrilled to share a few snapshots of baby’s woodland nursery which is now completely finished and ready to welcome the little guy of honor!
With a woodland theme in mind, we chose things that felt natural, clean and textured for his room. We wanted something that was bright and fun, but also soothing and calm. I started collecting pieces pretty early on in the pregnancy, after our 20 week scan, knowing that I wanted to take my time and enjoy creating a collected look. Pieces like the canoe shelf and the Animals of North America poster were Pinterest inspires whereas the Explore pennant and the Be Brave pieces I made myself.
Take your time when choosing the pricier pieces like the glider and the dresser. I fell in love with these pieces from West Elm and we splurged a little on these items knowing that we would use them for years to come. By paying a little more for better quality we hope that the dresser and side table will work for our son even as a teenager (unless his mom steals them for herself – hehe).
We had so much fun setting up baby’s room. It was a big happy project that kept us busy these last nine months. We’re really looking forward to enjoying the space and actually using all of the pieces we’ve set in place.
