NURSERY SNEAK PEEK

Reading:

I swear we had Bowie’s entire nursery completed by the halfway mark of my first pregnancy, but this time we haven’t had a moment to think about it – until now!

I’m 26 weeks pregnant and finally just starting to pull ideas together for what I envision for little dude’s nursery. We’ll be sharing all of the progress in upcoming vlogs on my YouTube channel, so if you’re curious to see it all come together, make sure you’re subscribed!

In the meantime, I thought it’d be fun to give you a sneak peek of what I have in mind! The decor theme is all centred around Bowie’s old crib that we’ll be reusing for baby boy’s room. It’s the Babyletto Jubilee crib, which is very bold and very gold. I wanted to keep his nursery very neutral and midcentury modern to tie in with the style of our home overall, until he’s big enough to tell us what he wants for a toddler bedroom makeover. Bowie’s nursery furniture was all white apart from the crib and I found the white paint used on most of her furniture to chip easily, so this time I’m going for natural wood tones throughout.

With Bo’s nursery we used printed wallpaper for a feature wall, but since we moved into this country home, I’ve been obsessing over board and batten wall designs and think his nursery could be the perfect place for one! Since it’s a kid’s room, I don’t want to go too traditional, so I’m hoping a carpenter can get creative with me and come up with a cool asymmetrical geometric pattern. As far as color goes, I was initially drawn to black, but our master and Josh’s office both have black feature walls. So, we may want to switch it up. I think something in the teal/green family could be the way forward, but still unsure if I want to go light or dark with the shade. Please comment below with any good paint ideas in this color family!

I will tie in the brass from the crib into light fixtures and small decor items around the room, so it doesn’t look completely out of place, but I think it should really pop off the board and batten feature wall as a strong centerpiece of the room.

I tried gliders when I was designing Bo’s nursery and I didn’t like the feel of them, so I opted for a rocker instead. Frankly, while I love me some rock and roll, I wasn’t much of a rocker during those late night feeds! I always wished I could just chill and kick my feet up, so this time I’m looking for something comfy with an ottoman.

I also got a super tall bookshelf for her room, but only used the bottom two shelves most of the time, because that’s what she could reach. All the upper shelves were just filled with decor and felt like a waste of wall space, so this time I want to get something short and kid-friendly so we can put a cool photo or art piece above it.

One of the most important decor items for a nursery, in my opinion, is a rug. Your little creepy crawler will learn a lot during play time in that room, so having something that covers a lot of the ground and is cozy for them to roll around and explore on is key. When Bo was learning to roll over, she’d lose control of her neck muscles a lot, so we got a memory foam rug pad to keep her safe. I will definitely be investing in that second layer of protection again, because it makes a huge difference. Also, make it extra comfy for your own tush when you’re playing with them in there!

I learned a lot from decorating Bowie’s nursery and, with all of that in mind, I am really excited to create a new space for baby #2! I hope he likes it!!!

    Love the vibe!! As far as accent wall color, I like both green smoke and studio green by farrow&ball! (shops will color match, so you get the trendy shade for a fraction of the price!!)

the full story

Since Bowie was born I've been more motivated than ever to show up as the best version of me and also share the experiences of those who have a new perspective to share that could make us all better people. So with that, here's a space for you to learn, explore, and sit beside me as I navigate this world through this new lens. 

Content Creator. Mama to Bowie. Wife to Josh. Straight Talker. DIY'er. You may also know me from my roles in 90210 and Degrassi. 

Motherhood does a great job at putting a mirror up to you in the form of a child and because of that I've found myself gravitating toward spaces where I can learn and evolve as a person.
