I'm in a different place this go around. I have a house, and I'm much more settled. Since we have planned this pregnancy, I have been thinking of things like the nursery already.
We are considering keeping the gender of the baby a secret. As in, we aren't going to know what we're having until delivery time!!! That's a whole other blog.
So this makes planning a nursery (which I didn't do until 8 months pregnant with Anisten) a little more tough. I know that I want to do something modern. I want bright. I want something that I can add too, after the baby is born and persuade the room one way or another.
We will be purchasing a toddler bed for Anisten, and then using her (black) crib for the new baby. After talking to Scott. We've decided to do a "black and white" theme. We will accent it with the bright aqua blue. I feel like, with this color, I can add some orange or green for a boy, or pink to the room for a girl.
I've been scouting, and have found a few ideas that I love already.
I'm also considering,if I have to, just making the bedding! I know, this seems INSANE. I have a brand new sewing machine, that hasn't been used yet. I'm thinking this would be a perfect time to bust it out.
Depending on the bedding, we're thinking of doing one of the walls striped like this. This is the green that I would accent with as well, if we have a boy! I'm not super opposed to this color alone! But everyting (including the walls) would be black and white, with accents of the green, like this room.
Here is what I was talking about, with the "accent" wall. Do you think that green is too "boyish"? I really really love it. Anisten's room is super hot lime green, so Scott says we don't need another green room, but I kind of love the look of this.
