At 23 weeks, my nesting instinct has hit with a vengeance. I suddenly have an urge to get Baby Cuatro’s nursery done. Now.
Only one problem there, folks. S/he doesn’t have a room yet!
When we bought our house, I thought my days of my own crafting space had finally arrived. Tucked at the top of our stairs is a lovely little loft bonus area. I started bookmarking craft nook ideas right and left, painstakingly planning and scheming just how to get the very most out of my new creative digs.
Amazing how two little pink lines have a way of changing things, yes? 😉
Come October, we will have six people living in a house that currently has three bedrooms. That, girls and boys, must be remedied. We feel so fortunate that we serendipitously purchased a home (before Cuatro was even a twinkle in our eye) that will make adding on another room so incredibly simple, as the bonus area was originally written in the plans as an optional fourth bedroom.
And I promise: I am in no way saddened by the fact that I’ll be sewing and crafting at the desk in my master bedroom for the foreseeable future. I know this little one will be totally worth it!
We are in the process of taking bids and such for the labor to complete the new bedroom and closet, but until then, I’ll have to leave my nesting to the Pinterest realm. So far, I’ve decided on a color scheme I love, and I’ve been bookmarking decorating ideas to really punch up the space.
This, my friends, is “the” color scheme. The moment I laid eyes on this nursery, I knew I had to incorporate that lime/royal blue palette into Cuatro’s room. Since we won’t know whe s/he is until delivery day, I think this will be a great route to take for a room that will be equally appropriate for a boy or a girl. My plan is to add accents of more gender-specific colors (possibly turquoise for a boy, magenta for a girl) once the baby arrives. I am thinking, too, and a little zebra rug might just *have* to make an appearance in this space.
There are so many inspiring design elements in the blog below, I scarcely no where to begin! I adore the use of the chickenwire frame above the crib to display the vintage pieces, as well as the cheery color of the freshly painted crib. (I think I might need to be committed for this decision, but I am contemplating painting the crib for Cuatro’s space.)
