I didn’t really have a “theme” in mind when I started off designing baby boy’s nursery, but when I stand back I think I see a bit of a Green Leafy trend coming into play. I love the neutral colours of white and birch a lot and paired with greenery I think it makes gives this little space a calm tone and I am so excited to get to spend the next few months cuddled up here with my new little boy.
Michael and I got started on the nursery pretty slowly, not wanting to create too much work for ourselves or to upset Magnus who started sharing a room with his big brother. Every weekend we did a little something, putting together the change table, buying a new rug, putting up a few palm leaf decals. Slowly it all came together, all the while we left the door wide open for the kids to go in and out and get used to the changes. And I think it worked well. Though I don’t think Magnus understands exactly what the baby is or what it will mean for our family life, he definitely doesn’t think of the nursery as his room anymore. He loves to come in there with me, to play on the floor or look out the window, even to spend some quiet time in the crib. But he calls it “the baby’s room” and I think that’s a pretty good sign.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on getting rooms started early? Are you a last minute kind of mama or a planner in advance like me?
