Now that we know that Roo is a girl, I’ve become obsessed with figuring out her nursery. I was able to go to our new house (fingers crossed – still waiting to hear) and measure some of the rooms that we need to buy new furniture including Roo’s nursery. So, I have the dimensions and can start to envision how I want it to look. MH is very into helping me figure out how to decorate our new home – which I love but could be a challenge since we have most similar but some different tastes. I think his need to be refined just a little to catch up with mine 😉
Early on I wanted to use Winnie-the-Pooh’s Hundred Acre Wood prints that I got at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London many years ago. But, now that we know Roo is a girl I’m thinking more girly. The room is already painted a pale yellow, which I like. MH and I spent time in France on our three-week European honeymoon and love many things French. I was thinking of hiring a muralist to paint the outline of the Eiffel Tower on one of the walls along with some other French images that go along…the images would all be in a grey to compliment the yellow already on the walls. I could get yellow and grey bedding.
I’ve fallen in love with the Jenny Lind crib. Have you seen it?
I love the simple but sophisticated look and the fact that it can be found on various sites for under $300.
Have you pregnant ladies started planning your nurseries?
