Nursery Planning: Boy and Girl nursery themes

Wednesday, September 16, 2015

We find out on SATURDAY if our little babe is a handsome boy or a darling girl. I am kind of in disbelief that I'm already 20 weeks and will soon know if I'll have a son or a daughter. The fact that the envelope with the verdict is in my purse right now is really, super, extra tempting.

Our 20-week ultrasound was yesterday and to be honest, it was tough. I am not quite ready to share the details but we will be seeing a specialist next week to learn more. I covet your prayers as we find out more about our baby's health in the coming weeks.

For now, I'm going to focus on the good  and the fun, and what's more fun than nursery planning?!

To get myself geared up for our reveal on Saturday with our parents, I put the nursery plans that I've had in my head down on "paper" to get a visual. And to, oh I don't know, show the hubs how our kid's room might will be decorated. And I am so excited! I don't know which one is my favorite.

Baby boy nursery: Vintage Golf
I mean, this theme might be a little obvious for a golf coach's baby boy. But I couldn't resist! And Alex is on board. I plan to use some vintage golf posters, as well as pictures of Alex and his dad playing golf when they were young.

Baby girl nursery: Lilly Pulitzer-inspired Chinoiserie 
Okay, so a Lilly-themed nursery might also be a little obvious for a girl from South Florida - ha! While pastels are sweet, I love bright colors in a baby's room. I want to get some vintage Lilly fabric scraps to make some wall hangings and pillows, and include some chinoiserie elements in the room as well.

Notice that I used a gray glider in both mocks. I'm thinking I need to stay neutral with the glider, since they are such an investment and we plan on having more than one child, God-willing. But we might go the slip-covered route, which is more $ up front - but I can more easily change the look later. Any thoughts on a glider?

Let me know what you think! And again - please, please remember Baby H in your prayers.
