Then one day I decided I really wanted a softer feel for the room. Even though I still adore the look of a dark nursery, I thought as she grows up, maybe we can do something more dramatic, but she's a baby and maybe I should keep the nursery soft and light. (And our bedroom, which I haven't shown on the blog, is Hale Navy so I hesitated having two dark navy rooms.)
So now I am thinking more along these lines, but I'm still liking the idea of gold, blush pink, and now light gray instead of navy as the main color (and possibly some navy in smaller doses).
While the final color scheme is technically still up in the air, we've picked up a few of the bigger items for the nursery:
The glider (it's the West Elm Graham glider in dove gray):
The crib (the classic Jenny Lind crib in white). This was really a no-brainer because both Justin and I slept in Jenny Lind cribs when we were babies. Cue the awwwws.
The dresser/changing table (the Hemnes dresser from Ikea) with new hardware and
with anne overlays painted in gold:
Here's a sneak peek of the overlays painted gold (as well as a few other items too). I think I may have a gold spray painting addiction!
And Justin painted some test swatches on the wall this weekend. Spoiler alert, we've picked the color (BM Shoreline), but it's not one of the swatches painted on the wall in this picture! I'll do a more detailed post with all of the colors we tried since I think it's so helpful to see paint swatches next to each other.
So that's pretty much all of the big picture things. It's so exciting to pull this room together. Now on to all the fun details!
