So now that we know we are having a GIRL, Ive been having a really fun time getting my nursery ideas in order. I thought maybe we could all have some fun sharing what our plans are. Since it is our first, Im going a little overboard probably but WHATEVER! I decided to go with a "Hawaii Baby" theme. I was born in hawaii, my husbands parents and my parents where married in Hawaii, the august birth stone (Peridot) is found in Hawaii (not exclusively but still, it is a volcanic made stone) and this baby will be a Leo (fire sign) and a water Dragon (Chinese sign) so I thought HEY! Fire + water= Hawaii!
So for our wall colors Im going with Teal and a soft Pink:
I found this crib set at Pottery Barn Kids that has both the teal and the pink AND the Peridot green which is great because Im going to put together a little chandelier type light fixture and decorate it with pearl and peridot.
THEN, I found these three really cute pictures Im going to put up on one wall:
And lastly (for now), I pulled out my own baby blanket from Hawaii and saw this really cute picture on it of a little Hawaiian girl riding a seahorse. My friend who is a great artist is going to do a painting of it that I can put over the crib.
So, I know Im going a bit crazy but planning her room just makes things seem so much more real! This room that was an absolute blank canvas is turning into my little girls room! Sorry for all the image-heaviness, I wasn't able to shrink these down right now so Im sorry if they are too big! Would love to hear what some of you mommies are planning. What sort of space you are planning for your LOs?
