Since finding out we were having a boy, I have been planning so many things. From clothing to diapers to formula, I feel like the list is never-ending. There are so many unknowns when it comes to having a baby, but I do know that I am in major nesting mode and have been planning our baby boy’s nursery like crazy!
Personally, I do not like a heavy theme when it comes to decorating a child’s room. For example, trains or anchors or safari themes are not what I’m going for. I want something very chic, minimal, and bohemian inspired. I know that once my little boy gets older, he will want race cars or super heroes or whatever, and he can have it! But for now, I am going to design a very chic nursery that I love spending time in.
When initially planning Baby K’s nursery, I started with a rug. I wanted something soft and fluffy, and I loved the gray and rust-colored pattern. Even before I got pregnant, I fell in love with this Babyletto crib! It comes in five different colors, and I knew no matter the gender of our baby, I would have one. I selected the white and espresso colors for my registry because it added the perfect dimension and masculinity.
Next came the curtains – I was obsessed with the idea of velvet curtains and gold curtain rods. The ones I was coveting were from West Elm, but they were a bit over my budget. So I went on the hunt for a less expensive version of both. AND I FOUND THEM. These gold curtain rods are only $40 compared to $109, and these navy velvet curtains are only $40 for the pair compared to $180 for the pair. I also got these curtain clips because I didn’t want the curtains hanging directly on the rod. And if you’re skeptical, don’t be. I’ve already purchased and hung up the rods and curtains and they are high quality.
Keeping with my gold hardware theme, I wanted an industrial feeling flush ceiling light. Our home was built in the 1960s and some of the original lights still hang, so it is more than time to upgrade. Originally I wanted the light on the left, but found it to be sold out everywhere. Of course, it is now available here. I ended up purchasing the light on the right AND I got an open box deal on Amazon and only paid $90! You can find it here and here.
Even though it’s not pictured in my inspiration pic above, I needed dresser/changing table. I picked out this changing table because the style perfectly matched the crib, but I’m going to switch out the hardware for gold handles – either these or these, depending on the hole width. I am patiently waiting the four-week delivery period for this, and I can’t wait for it to arrive so I can start organizing baby clothes!
I can’t wait to show off the final product of Baby K’s nursery! It is slowly coming together, and I will keep updating you every step of the way. I plan on figuring out the perfect glider, wall art and decor, and ottoman, so stay tuned! If you have any ideas, please send them my way – I need all the help I can get!
