A few weeks ago I showed everyone the nursery mood board that we were going to base the nursery around…
I have made some progress and definitely have made some changes in the plan. I shared the crib, dresser and rug with you guys a while ago also (those aren’t changing).
We decided on a paint color for the upper part of the wall (there is chair rail throughout the whole room). I can’t wait to see the Benjamin Moore Old Navy paint on the walls! Here it is in a mod nautical nursery (via Hudsen Baby Design):
Below the white chair rail will be solid white. I have decided to do green accents instead of baby blue that I originally was thinking about.
The astronaut light fixture has been ordered from Amazon. Today it is $16 less than it was when I bought it, darn.
It’s so cute…I hope it’s bright enough to light up the room, but not too bright.
I searched high and low for a unique crib mobile. I really wanted something that looked like molecules from organic chemistry, but I couldn’t find anything I liked. I figured I could make something, but I was paranoid about it falling apart and becoming a choking hazard. I have decided to make something that the baby won’t choke on! The base of the mobile will be this, also from Amazon:
And the hanging objects have to do with robots…I haven’t made it yet, but hopefully it works!
My mom made baby Kevin a beautiful quilt which she gave us at the shower. I helped select the fabrics and the design. I just love the finished blanket and I know Kevin will have it for many years:
Instead of the blue robot curtain fabric I originally added to the mood board, I think I am going to go with this argyle print from fabric.com:
I am loving the bright green with the navy, and the argyle is perfect with the educational thing we have going on. I wanted to do a coordinating print for the crib skirt, and I think I decided on this chevron:
I also purchased a pull down school map, vintage globe, and am working on another piece of art for the wall. I originally wanted to add some more art, but we are running out of room on the walls (it’s not a very big room). I hope I can fit some more scientific objects in there!
What do you think? I’m hoping it looks good when I get it all together, and not crazy! Kevin is worried I am all over the place with the design, but I feel like a have a plan. It’s “eclectic nerdy baby chic”, lol.
