Our Nursery Inspiration

Monday, April 20, 2015

Pretty soon after finding out we were expecting, I headed to Pinterest to start brainstorming ideas for our little boy or girls nursery. Of course I kept all my boards secret (thank you to whoever came up with that idea!) and started pinning away. The boy nursery ideas came easier than the girl, similar to the names but after some searching We finally found some inspiration we both really liked.

I've always wanted a nursery that was classy and simple with small touches or character. When we found out we were having a girl, my inspiration was sealed and I knew what theme I was going to go with, hot air balloons. I'm hoping for solid colored bedding and curtains and some hot air balloon accents in the decor and prints. I'm also having my dad do a small painting in the corner of the room near where the rocker will sit. When we were waiting for my bother to arrive once we were placed with a baby for his adoption, my dad painted a mural in his nursery. And when I was older, we together painted clouds on my ceiling. Having paintings that my dad helped with has always been something I wanted to add to my child's room one day and I am excited to be able to see that come to reality.

Here are some of the images we are using to help lead our design of the room . . .
When looking back over all the images I had pinned for inspiration, I had pinned this one three times. I guess that's sort of a hint that I like it. I hope to use this same color scheme of navy, coral and gold in our little girl's nursery. 

I love how clean yet feminine this room is and also love some of the hot air balloon prints incorporated. 

While this room has more of an overall carnival theme, I love the hot air balloons they used! 

And finally, this print is the first decor item for the nursery and what I'm using for the inspiration behind it all! 

I can't wait to see how it all comes together! It has been so fun searching for items to add to our little girl's room and I just can't wait to see it all finished and watch her grow and enjoy the room! Do you have any places you found great items for your nursery?
