It’s official. With the exception of one last detail (that is still a week or two out in the mail yet), the Bean’s nursery is ready and waiting. I’m delighted that it came together in time for Gramma to arrive to use it as a guest room for a bit, and I feel like I’ve crafted a space that will be peaceful for rocking times and nursing and just getting to know our sweet baby better. I can’t wait to spend time here with our little babe soon!
I always look forward to sharing a new space with you, and this may be my favorite to date. I wanted to keep things really neutral and mellow for baby number three, so I kept that in mind when curating the space. Inspired by a Land of Nod activity mat that I loved the first time I spotted it, and it was easy for me to decide on an ocean/water theme from there. I don’t have the mat out in the room yet because baby won’t need it for a bit, but I love how everything else came together around it.
Whether baby is a boy or a girl, I think I can slant the space to skew in either direction. A few splashes of pink or some additional olive and navy will make it more gender specific. For now though, I’m just loving that it feels like baby…there’s a lot that settles for me once there’s a room ready for each of our little ones. Without further ado, here’s the reveal (Links to products mentioned can be found at the end of this post):
It was such a joy to piece this room together over time. Thanks for letting me share it with you! The beauty in having nearly nine months to dream about a space is that nothing need be rushed–sweet elements can be added here and there for a long while, allowing me–for some time, to be in and out of the room where our little one will rest and grow before I ever rock or set him or her down to sleep here. I pray that the peace I feel in the room today will be evident to baby for a long time to come. He or she will be here so soon to call it home. I can’t wait!
