I’m having a jolly time getting the nursery ready. I love home decor and design, and it’s a thrill to plan for a baby’s room. So far, the nursery exists mainly in my head. We’re working on some prep work (painting, mainly) before we really start buying furniture and assembling the room.
I do, however, have my rocking chair. I fell in love with this one from the Land of Nod, but I couldn’t justify the price. However, we happen to live very near a newly-opened Land of Nod outlet. We stopped in one weekend and found a floor model of exactly the rocker I wanted, marked down DRASTICALLY. Here it is in our (poorly lit) sitting room:
I love it. It’s just the right balance between comfy and supportive. With the curved back, it’s high enough for a tall gal like me to actually rest my head. I sit in it as often as I can!
Just this week, I also ordered our cribskirt. We decided against getting a crib set and are instead mixing and matching different things that we like. The nursery will have a woodlands theme and a color scheme of orange and grey, with some browns and blues thrown in. For the cribskirt, I found an Etsy seller who makes custom crib bedding, and she was able to get this orange woodgrain fabric (from this collection) for me:
The skirt will be straight with a box pleat. I can’t wait to see the final product in a few weeks, and I can’t wait to see my nursery vision slowly become a reality!
