When it came to designing LJ’s nursery, I knew exactly what I wanted. But when people would ask me what the theme was, I struggled to perfectly describe it. I would be like…um…think woodland meets adventure meets safari! Haha. That’s the best I got! In my head it made sense. I really wanted tones of neutral colors with pops of “boy” tones and wanted it to feel like a nursery while also achieving a mature vibe as well. So I collected all of my favorite things and created what I think is the perfect little nursery for our perfect little boy. For starters, we got all of our furniture from Babies R Us. After getting all of Arabella’s from Buy Buy Baby, that was my first choice to go looking but Josh and I just happened to see this gray set and fell in love. The drawers in the dresser are soft-close and it is probably my favorite thing about them. If you have kids, you know just how easily they smash their fingers in closing drawers. We opted to go with the book case instead of an armoire because I knew I had a bunch of cute stuff I wanted on display. In terms of decor, Target & Hobby Lobby pretty much had everything my heart desired. If you have not checked out Hobby Lobby and you’re planning on designing anything in your home – you’re missing out! BUT proceed with caution… You will end up wanting to buy the entire store. I personally have been keeping away lately because I know all the Halloween decor is now fully stocked and is calling my name. Side note: Stay tuned for an upcoming blog post on our Halloween decor. We LOVE Halloween and my hubby and I love to go all out decorating the house inside and out! Anyways, shopping for and designing little man’s nursery took tons of man hours!! A big shout out to my bestie Lexi for literally spending hours upon hours shopping with me until I had everything I needed! (And for not being embarrassed when everyone was looking at us in Target when Arabella had the meltdown of the century). I had so much fun designing my baby boy’s nursery. I hope you guys enjoy it as well! Scroll to the bottom for a list of what’s from where!
