Welcome to what is fast becoming my favorite room in the house: Jake's nursery! It's not 100% complete (what room is), but it's finished enough that I'm excited to share. When I started designing this space I thought I had an unwavering plan. I fell in love with every single piece I chose, and created a rendering that I obsessed over every day.
But as I waited for our baby to come, and hoped that his adoption would go through and we would finally become parents, I began to rethink my choices. I guess that's what happens when you have a lot of time on your hands lol.
This is the rendering I started with.
I really loved how light and neutral this was, but as I thought about the fact that we were having a boy I realized I wanted to add some more color to make the space more engaging (and hide as much little boy dirt as possible) as he grew up. I wanted a space that could grow with him with minimal changes over the next few years.
I began the process again by deciding what pieces I wanted to keep. It turns out only the light fixture, bedding, and curtains made the cut. I hit up Pinterest of course and began saving new inspiration photos. The following is the finalized mood board I worked with to complete his room.
And now for the reveal!
