Calling All Moms: I Need Your Design Help!!steveecurtis
Ladies, I need your help. I’m currently decorating/designing my son’s nursery, and I’m stuck. So far, I have his furniture, bedding, art, and a few decorative items. However, I still need more decorative accents, a crib skirt, floor lamp, table lamp, book shelf, hamper, curtains, and gilder… and I’m not sure where to go, or what to buy from here.
I have about six weeks to get this done, and I’m starting to feel the crunch… and some crazy nesting hormones. I think I would feel so much better if I could just get this finished. For my own sanity, I need a place to put his things, but I need some design inspiration. I’m hoping you gals can help me out.
Continue reading to see what I have in his nursery so far, and to see if you can give me any design guidance, tips, and/or ideas…
If you couldn’t tell by some of the random toys in this room, this space use to be my daughter’s playroom. The play kitchen is staying, but the toys and pack n’ play are going. I figure if I keep the play kitchen in his room, my daughter will have something to play with while I nurse.
Ok, so here’s what I have so far…
The bedding didn’t come with a crib skirt, which is a total bummer. The crib has a drawer at the bottom, and with the mattress being in the highest setting, you can see what’s inside the drawer without a crib skirt. What crib skirt do I get? A solid color? Maybe something bright orange, or green, or blue? Where would I even find just a crib skirt?
I couldn’t choose a color, so I bought the three I thought would go with all the artwork. I figure one could sit in the glider, and one in the crib (of course I will take this out when the baby is in the crib). What colors do you like?
Then there are these french doors. I have to put some curtains up, but I have no idea what kind, or color to get. I will have to buy them seeing as though I can’t sew to save my life. This room has to have curtains to block out light, and for privacy, but my mom was not a curtain person growing up, so I have no idea how to do this. Any ideas??
I still need to pick a glider, floor lamp, table lamp, hamper, knick-knacks, and book shelf…and this is where I am hitting a major wall. I can’t seem to pick anything. The only thing I know that I am going to do is a picture collage. It is the only thing my husband has asked for. I did a couple in my daughter’s nursery, and he loves them, but I am having hard time even picking out frames for this. Here are what the collages look like in my daughter’s room…
Alrighty, girls… I need your design expertise. What would go cute in my nursery? I’m open to ideas, and would GREATLY appreciate them!
Stay tuned! I’ll be posting updates on the progress!
