i am finally getting started on the baby's room (should i be worried that his due date is just over 2 months away?) i had a mini freak out last weekend about how i had no direction for the room, no color scheme or ideas. so i thought about it all weekend and pretty much figured out exactly what i want to do. so now i'm going from freaking about about having no ideas to freaking out about having none of the things for my ideas, and having time to get everything done. you feel me? here is where we are going with everything. i'm hoping to have it done a month before his due date- giving me just over a month! here we go!
first of all- i have been dying to do a geometric wall. since the baby really only gets one wall (the other side of the room is the 'office', one wall is all windows, and the other wall is the closet) we are painting the background in a geometric pattern. jarman actually got it done last weekend and i love it. it is quite a bit brighter than the walls above (i can't help myself with bright colors).
i definitely want to have a sort of open closet, with a bar underneath the shelves that we are putting in there.
i am loving the plus sign trend right now- i'm thinking i'm going to use it in the curtains for the room. i'm super diy. i bought 4 cheap white ikea curtain panels and an going to paint black plus signs on them. hopefully it turns out- wish me luck!
i am also loving the copper trend- i want to have accents of it in the room. the clothing rack underneath the shelf will probably be copper, and the curtain rods.
i love natural wood cribs with colored slats. since i'm not going to buy a $600 crib, we are going to improvise by painting an ikea cribs slats.
and finally, the color scheme- bright neony yellow, teals, navys, mints, and black and white. and probably a little bit of orange. like i said, i can't help myself with bright colors.
