When I was pregnant with Phoebe and putting together her nursery, I was very conservative. We didn’t paint and I keep everything very neutral, and by neutral, I mean bones, soft browns and whites. There was little or in fact no colour in that room now that I look back.
We only ever planned to stay in this house of ours for a few years, so we have always been apprehensive painting and hanging things from the walls (I married a plasterer, what can I say). But this time around, I’m feeling much braver!
My first baby purchase arrived the other day and has set the tone for everything to come. I love Pinterest, but nothing is better than good ol’ madeit and etsy for a purchase!
I’m thinking now of yellow and grey throw cushions as well to brighten the nursery even more. I have my eye on a beautiful yellow throw with some words written on it. Thecot quilt that I bought is from Alphabet Monkey on madeit, and I can’t wait til I can’t start moving all the nursery furniture in and start pulling all my ideas together!
My sister says that I’m definitely leaning towards boy colours, and maybe I am. But the fact of the matter is, the quilt is by far my favourite colour at the moment.
So what do you think? What colours would you decorate a new nursery in?
LOVING that colour!
Actually, I just love colour 😉
I recognise alphabet monkey through my work on Down That Little Lane (they are a seller there), & their stuff is BEAUTIFUL 🙂
I wonder what you’re having! 😉
I could spend days at Down that Little Lane! I think I’m having a boy for sure, but then again, I thought that last time! Thanks for visiting Cherie (made my day a bit brighter x)
This is beautiful! I must get onto madeit and etsy and source out some nursery items myself! I dont actually have any visions for the nursery yet, colours or theme! I love the sounds of yellow and grey together, that will look gorgeous!
You obviously don’t find out what sex you are having?
I found out with Evie but this time I think I want to keep it a secret, Im just not sure that I can! Undecided
This was the first thing I saw, I loved it and will build from there.
Not going to find out what we are having, I have my days where I’d like to though! We didn’t find out for Phoebe, and we loved the suprise of it all.
