We’re switching it up in here. What used to be our guest bedroom will become our nursery, and what used to be our to-be-exercise-room will be our guest bedroom.
That means… two new rooms to design! Yay!
Today, when taking things out of the ex-guest-bedroom-turned-to-be-nursery, I decided to doodle and play around with possible room arrangements.
Although we’re moving our guest bedroom downstairs, our planned color scheme (orange and gray) will remain in this room. I fell in love with this fabric that I spotted at Effortless Style, so we’ll be adding in navy blue and some greens and yellows in the mix.
I think this would be really great as curtains, maybe. Or a headboard for our sofa (more on that later).
We really want to work with what we have as much as possible to save money so we can buy all the baby stuff! There are so many things to buy!! Aghhh… but we’re not focusing on that right now.
Here’s a very, very rough moodboard:
The chair, orange shag rug, side table, and the ceiling light are all things we already have. The “sofa” you see in my sketch is actually a twin bed mattress that my mom gifted to us. We’ll be turning that into a sofa, inspired by Aubrey + Lindsay’s cute couch in their nursery.
What we need to buy: a white crib, a long dresser to serve as a catch-all and changing table (Craig’s List or thrift store), and pillows and accessories (West Elm has lots of cute navy pillows I’m digging right now). I would love to add a pouf that I’ve been coveting for a long time – the cute gray knit pouf from CB2. I still want nine RIBBA frames for art, but $20 x 9 = $180. Hmm. Hey, my birthday’s coming up. (hint)
Not bad, but still far from a finished vision. We’re getting there, though!
