Nursery Inspiration

The combination of a new house and a new baby on the way presented a great delightful and daunting new challenge: designing a nursery!

Even before we knew whether Baby was a boy or a girl, I had fixated on a look I loved--robins egg blue accented with yellow/oranges and browns. Nothing too blue or too green, but something that could feel very fresh, modern, childlike, without having a "theme". I wanted the room to feel like a space I would love to spend time in and that Baby would love to wakeup to and play in--things that right now are only abstract!

I have these images from OhDeeDoh (by the way, a completely addictive section of the Apartment Therapy website) and I constantly go through them for inspiration.

I love these looks and I think they show different ways that the direction could moe towards feminine or more masculine. We love the Ikea Expedit "window seat" and plan to do that in our own room for Baby. I promise to post pics of our real nursery as it comes together in the coming months. Forgive my small baby indulgences on this blog!

Any of you use Apartment Therapy or OhDeeDoh for inspiration? What do your favorite rooms or nurseries look like?


  1. I am totally addicted to that website. i check it daily (along with JCA, he he). Do you know who you are having? I had so much fund designing my nursery.

  2. You shouldn't apologize for what you put on your blog. Your header says My Favorite Things. Baby away all you want! I love the inspiration pics. So fresh and bright, but not cartoony. I like that :-)

    Hope you're doing well!

  3. Love the inspiration pics! I'm not addicted to apartment therapy - yet, anyway ;)

    Pease do post the nursery when it's finished!
