Our oldest child (two and a half now) is a boy and I was so excited when we found out that we were having a boy. I couldn’t wait to decorate his nursery. I knew that I wanted to do something classic and blue. I went with a “Peter Rabbit” kind of theme and used yellow accents throughout. Here is what his baby room looked like.
Then with our second child we found out we were having a girl! Of course I knew I was going to have so much fun decorating her nursery but also was reminded that I would need to work within a very tight budget. So I decided that since I didn’t want to paint and my husband really doesn’t enjoy the job of painting, we would keep blue. I also knew we would be keeping all the furniture. This gave me the chance to swap out the crib bedding and accent colors. This time I filled the room with lots of color. Here is what her current nursery looks like…
I just changed out the blue basket liners for some pink ones.
Again I added pink changing pad covers and traded the blue chandelier pendent to a pink one (thanks to my Dad).
Obviously the bedding and accesories changed too.
I got the idea for the art above her crib from The Purl Bee – Liberty of London Swatch Portraits
