We are in the midst of doing a renovation on our suite. You may remember the apartment tour I gave you a while ago. There is no room for a baby in our current suite, so thankfully Nana Tweedle has agreed to let us expand our basement suite into her beloved storage area (think: LOTS of moving, shaking and trips to the dump!) and build a whole extra bedroom. Mr. Tweedle and I will have the new room (pictures of the progress coming soon!) and the baby will move into our room.
I can't get started on the nursery until we finish our reno, but it is coming along nicely thanks to lots of "encouraging" and "reminding" of our timeline from yours truly.
|This is my most favourite nursery that I have found. Becuase we are not finding out the sex of our baby, I need to be sure to come up with something gender neutral. This one looks a little girly to me, but I am using the wall colour and furniture as some of my inspiration.|
|When you think of blue, you always think BOY, but I am envisioning a turquoise and sky blue gender neutral nursery. I absolutely LOVE all the nurseries that are posted on the blog Lay Baby Lay, where this one is from. They are always classy with mixes of vintage and modern. I got the idea of doing a gender neutral blue from this post. However, I am going to stick to more muted blue tones than the cobalt blue she uses.|
|Here are my fabric inspirations as of late. I LOVE looking at fabric on Etsy and I am constantly saving swatches and favouriting new pieces. As I said, I am going for turquoise and sky blue, with touches of the wildlife theme here and there. My favourite fabric right now is the fox one in the middle. I also love the animals in the top right corner, but it doesn't really go with the colour scheme. I am trying to think of a way to incorporate it. Most of these swatches are from the shop Fabricbubb.|
|Lastly, if I could get my hands on one of these "Joya Rockers" I would be in heaven, but they are pretty pricey (899$) for my budget. I keep thinking of how I could justify buying it- it would look nice in a living room later.... don't you think? I can just picture it with a white dresser and crib and a cute little embroidered animal pillow on it!!! For now I will stick to scouring Kijiji and Craigslist for second hand wannabes... :(|
I am planning to sew my own crib bedding and change pad cover. I am going to make a quilt for the baby as well as embroider some cute animals for some wall decor. I'm on the lookout for a couple of throw pillows, but might end up sewing those also. I can't wait to get started on all of it! Stay tuned for the progress!
