It’s here, it’s time, I’m FINALLY ready to share Austin’s big nursery reveal with you all! I kept wanting to share this with you from before he was born, but it was never “complete”. Well, it’s still not “complete” now either, but it’s probably the most I’ll get done for awhile as things are pretty busy around here. From the beginning, I always knew that I wanted to do a grey themed nursery. I just LOVE the color grey and I think it’s a great neutral color palette to work with. And it can easily be turned into a “girl” nursery too (for possibly later down the road, way later). I also love the innocent look of white furniture and how it goes so well against grey walls. Blues, greens, and yellows brighten the room up and complement each other well. I have a sincere love for baby animals, so much so that some of my coworkers even call me “baby animals”. I think they may have caught me looking at Cute Overload over a lunch break one day… haha. Anyhow, so I knew that animals needed to be a part of his nursery. Besides animals, I also wanted to bring in a design element and since chevron print has been another obsession of mine for awhile too (can’t you tell from my blog banner), I figured that was the perfect modern touch to add to his nursery. There you have it, a little background on how I designed his nursery, now I’ll let the pictures do the rest of the talking!
