The Nursery Theme Reveal

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

It took us months to finally decide on a plan for Baby P's nursery.  I wanted to have some sort of underlying theme, without it jumping out at you as soon as you walk in the door.  I wanted it to feel sophisticated, yet fun for a baby girl.

Enter:  Baby P's "It's a Small World" Nursery.

Here's the plan:

We've hung board and batten on all of the walls, 48" from the floor.  Hanging it this tall means it will extend above the crib and the light switch and just provide a nice, clean, white backdrop for the rest of the room.  Above the board and batten, we're painting the walls Aqua Chiffon by Pittsburgh Paints.  We pulled that color from the city prints and think it will be a bright and cheery backdrop for the artwork and bedding.

Speaking of which, let's talk about the artwork!  I ordered 3 city prints from Laura Amiss on Etsy.  I fell in love with the overall feel of them, and they tie in with the small world theme perfectly.  Oopsy Daisy has a fun line of "It's a Small World" art.  We'll either order a canvas print or I will attempt a DIY - not sure yet.

The crib and glider both came from Target.  Her bedding and curtains are from Pottery Barn Kids.  The dresser is from IKEA, and will also serve as her changing table.  The monogram came from Groopdealz.

Above the crib, hanging on the wall, will be a wall crown canopy.  We're not exactly sure how we're going go pull this off yet, but I don't think we'll be paying $300 for the one from RH Baby & Child that I included in the mood board.  It's just for inspiration.  We'll either use crown molding and hang sheer curtains behind it, or find something else that will work.

To round out the Small World theme, we ordered three of the cutie Small World dolls from the Disney Store.  They each sing the infamous song in English and their native language.  We're not sure yet how they will be displayed, but they are too cute for words.

So that's it - Baby P's nursery in a tidy little mood board.  We're so excited about the direction we've taken and can't wait to get the room painted!  Board & batten is hung, just a little bit more caulking to do and we'll be ready to roll (literally).  :)
