a baby’s room

woodland nurseryBelly 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!

woodland nurseryWith 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.
