I swear I never had 'nesting' instincts when I was pregnant with Brigitte. Shopping instincts yes...cleaning, not so much.
But boy oh boy - this time around I feel so energetic that I can hardly shut my brain off at night when I think about all I need to do, clean, organize, and buy the next day! It has motivated me to finally (& shamefully) start finishing Brigitte's room so I can weed out all the little reuseable baby things for brother.
Brigitte's room is coming along nicely, I just need to find a CUTE chair for her room, and get everything put where I want it :) We transitioned her to a big girl bed, and its pretty much the cutest thing I've ever seen. She's done great sleeping in it too, she thinks its lovely and especially enjoys the fancy pink bed spread Grammy & Pop bought for her. Pictures to come....
So on to my current quandary : Operation Boy Room. I can hardly believe Im having a boy. The only boy I know is Gabe...and im not about to decorate a room out of ugly Redskins football paraphernalia (sorry husband, Im a real heartbreaker). So it bodes well to ask the question: what does one DO to turn a space into a boy appropriate dwelling? I know not.
I do know that I have a fear of 'baby rooms'. As you may recall, Brigitte's digs were akin to Art Deco hotel furnishings... and it took me a year to even get her wallpaper up. There will be no Dora lamps. And No Princess murals. And likewise, this Boy will have to abide by my no-ugly room policy. I just can't tolerate cartoon airplanes, primary colors, or gasp - a 'themed' room. I know you all agree with me, im just stating the obvious.
So tell me, all my gifted decorator friends - what do I do? What have you seen around that you thought "oh what a good idea"? I have an adorable room completely ready for a makeover. Hit me with your best sources. (pictures are even better). Im open to anything cute, modern, and especially different.
I cant pick a color. I cant pick a style. HELP !! Here are a few I like. Tell me if they make you barf ;)
(Obviously I wouldnt have a pink floor. And I would do away with the matchy animals. But browns, blues and yellow???? maybe...)
Dont ask me what that moose-like thing on the wall is. And not even I would put a girl in this room. What is that pink coat doing?
yup - this was Tori Spellings nursery in one of her houses.
