My other overzealous weekend activity...coming up with a mood board for the baby's room. We will be turning our guest room into the nursery, and right now it is painted pink, with red-stained wood floors. I really want a calm, peaceful, serene room with mainly soft colors, and the occasional pop of brighter colors. I am going to be painting the room a very soft blue, and hanging long linen curtains trimmed with red pom poms (to bring in the red of the floor). I am also going to try making my own crib bumper (inspired by the Serena and Lily one above), as well as a quilt, many soft toys and cute outfits. I hope that the rest of the decor will come from Etsy, Craigslist and friends eager to pass along their used baby goods! In fact, I already found the Pottery Barn changing table for a steal on Craigslist, so I am going to pick it up this week.
I know this all might seem premature to some, but with a book to write, a few article assignments, and a backyard redo in the works (more on that later), I feel like I want to start getting all of my ducks in a row for our big arrival!
So what do you think...any ideas, suggestions, thumbs up??!!
