Nursery Mood Board

Alright friends, I’m a day shy of ten weeks from my due date with this little munchkin that’s been growing and karate-ing inside of me! And while I still have the energy and drive to get things done, those things are getting much more difficult! A little more winded and a little less bend happening around here. But now that I’ve got most of the house painted and pulled together, it’s time to get cracking on this little boy’s nursery!

I’m glad I took the time to think over the details and look around before settling on anything as I feel more confident about what I want the end result to look like! Here’s what I have in mind…

  1. The Babyletto Hudson 3-in-one Crib: This was not in my field of vision until I came across one on Craigslist for $150!! I couldn’t believe it. Oh- and definitely picked it up– yesterday!
  2. Feiss Semi-Flush mount Light Fixture: I’m in love with this light for the nursery. A modern, fun design that sells for only $60!
  3. Star Charts by We Are Brainstorm: I stumbled upon these once upon a time and couldn’t shake them from my mind. They would look amazing in white or pine frames in this nursery scheme.
  4. noLOOM Moroccan Trellis Rug: This was actually my first purchase for the nursery. I bought it in 5’3 x 7’6 for $124 on Overstock. It’s not crazy soft wool, but for that reason it doesn’t shed and it’s actually decently thick. All in all, a happy purchase!
  5. Hillevi 170 Pretty Peg Legs: I  can’t wait to use this legs (in birch) in my modern nursery as an IKEA hack with the—
  6. 2 x 4 Kallax: This will be my changing table, bookshelf, and toy organizer. It’s so multipurpose it was a no-brainer for me.
  7. Ekby Jarpen Wall Shelf: Love the simple combination of the white with birch on this wall shelf. I’m not sure if I should go with one long one, or a few short ones. We’ll see!
  8. Astronaut Curious George: Because he’s just too cute.
  9. Side Table: I thought I could make a side table like this one for next to the rocking chair.
  10. Planet Mobile: This would be icing on the cake for this cute little space themed nursery. (Ps. My nursery walls are the same blue color shown in the background!)

As for curtains, I can’t decide between white or navy with stars blackout curtains… With blue walls and what furniture, what do you think?

Speaking of decisions… Can I just say picking out a rocker is the most difficult task for me yet!? I loooove rocking. It’s soothing for me and the babes I’ve nannied for in the past. In fact I’m usually the one to fall asleep in it first! I also looove minimalism.  So when it comes to style vs. comfort vs. cost I get torn! Here are what I see as my options.

Comfort wise, the Eames modeled chair would definitely lose. I honestly shouldn’t chose it, but it’s just so cute right?! The full on glider with ottoman looks heavenly for being up all night with a new born. The only drawbacks are that it’s little busy and big.  The Poang Ikea rocker is commendable for its minimal design and option of coming in white or gray (or upholster my own cushions!). The Babyletto chair is incredibly gorgeous, but it falls quite a bit out of our price range. Here’s to finding one on Craigslist!

What is your experience with rockers? Let me know below!

So there you have it. A nursery mood board. Once the bigger items are in place, I’ll be getting more focused on the other little details that I’ve been dreaming out. Can’t wait to share those with you too!

Petite Modern Life

I'm Karisa. I live just outside of Seattle with my husband Michael {Mr. G}, our two cats, Rue and Archimedes, and our new Australian Shepherd pup in crime, Moose. We are do-it-yourself enthusiasts. I'm the dreamer, he's the strategist, and teamed up we get it done. In January 2014 we purchased our first house! The many adventures of remodeling, decorating, and inevitable redecorating will be documented here. I was born and raised in the PNW & I love the PNW life. Mountains, lakes, rivers, ocean, trees, rain, and sun: every sight & season has its own flavor & tune. It inspires in me activity, coziness, and sprees of creativity. I'm rather obsessed with white paint, natural light, homemade pizza, and a glass of red wine.
