Nursery Progress!

I'd call myself a "fly by the seat of my (ever growing larger) pants" kinda pregnant lady. I've been thinking about the nursery forever but having the hardest time making decisions! I've bitten the bullet, convinced I absolutely LOVE what I picked out, only to spit it back out and start over again. BUT - I think we're finally making progress.

I had the hardest time finding inspiration pictures. I didn't want her room to look like she threw up butterflies, or flowers, or winnie the pooh (which still makes me giggle even with a child of my own on the way). Here are just a few that I found slightly inspirational...

I (errr...we) finally decided to paint her room silver sage -- the most beautiful color on earth. Restoration Hardware stores are always painted this color -- it's the most relaxing, complex yet neutral color there is and I've been obsessed for years. There is no imitation, you have to suck it up and pay the ridiculous paint per gallon at RH.

From there, I tried some 3-d "inspiration boards"

I love the chocolate/silver sage/white cream combination. Now that the walls are actually painted though, the silver sage reads with a good amount of gray in it in the light of her room - and a hint of pink looks gorgeous. (Mike actually looks quite handsome in the room as well). Unfortunately, the color doesn't read that well in the pictures!

And, since I just got a new flip camera - I had to try it out - so here's the video version (starring Michael).

Still on the way...
crib (no pics)
This bedskirt and sheet (along with a plain silver sage sheet)
These blankets (silver sage)

This gorgeous roman shade (so simple, but i love it) in warm white.

This adorable nightlight

Maybe this (in more rose shades)? Funny, added this to my etsy favorites the other day and didn't even realize I had saved the inspiration picture above with poms!

More to come!

And, upon's 27 week belly (the butt and, by god, the boobs, match the growth well).

OH! Just wonderful- especially Mikey all stretched out amongst all. Love the closet, the mirror, and the bedding. Very nice! what fun!! You both look belly-bootiful!!

OMG, please come decorate my house. If I ever have a baby, he or she is going to be so disappointed, they're going to request a transfer to a mommy who understands color.... Very impressed.

Love it all. Never would have thought of putting pink with the silver sage, but you're right--it's a neutral. It all looks fantastic together. If you need any help with anything, I would love to pitch in.
