Nursery Tour

When we found out we were pregnant, we wondered how we would turn our cozy second bedroom into a nursery for our little one.  We happen to live very far from our family, so we wanted to keep our guest room available as much as possible, while creating a place for the baby too.  

Because we will hopefully be making a move in the next 6 months to a year, we also didn't want to go too crazy with decorating/painting/completing the room like we probably normally would.  But I did want it to be special.  Special for our sweet baby boy, and special for our wonderful guests who visit.

Without further adieu, our guest room/nursery!

I love his closet!  I find myself looking through his clothes all the time, and picturing him wearing each outfit :)
the other side of the closet - with plenty of hanging room for guests above the storage.

I wanted to do a simple gallery wall above his changing table, and I love how this turned out!

I am really happy with how it turned out!  We actually plan to have the baby sleep in a bassinet (the one I used as a baby) in our bedroom for the first little while, as we plan to have guests for the first month or so.  And then we will transition him into the nursery to his crib.  I actually like having a bed in there too, as I could sleep/nap with him if needed.  Always good to have the option.

I wanted to make the room sweet, simple, and not-too-baby.  I love the baby blue accents, the stripes, and the soft textures.  I still have a little bit more to do (crib pillows, and a few more art pieces to hang), but we are pretty much done!
