Bumpdate – Nursery Plans

Now that the initial overwhelm is wearing off from the decluttering and reorganizing we (mostly) completed last month, I’m ready to start putting my focus on the nursery plans! I know furniture shipping is pretty delayed right now, so I wanted to check off some decisions so everything arrives in time.

Baby Girl Nursery Inspiration

It’s no secret I love the feminine combo of pink, white, and gold, but I also love vintage and french country touches. I still want to mix in some modern touches and not go too overly themed with the design, and use pieces she can grow into. Here are a few of the pins I’ve saved to my inspiration board recently.

When I made this inspiration board I was originally thinking we’d do a board and batten, but now I’m set on a more feminine Parisian trimming for the walls in the nursery. I’m leaning towards painting it white, but I may be tempted to do a soft beige pink, we’ll see once we get a few samples up!

I love the closet organization above, so I want to try and DIY the project with an Ikea shelf I currently have. It’s not a top priority before baby girls arrival, but it’s on the to-do list if we have time. The beaded chandelier is currently in our master bedroom nook, so we’re going to switch it to the nursery and go for something a little more transitional for our space.

I recently fell in love with these pretty chinoiserie panels I’m tempted to frame for the walls, but they are a bit of a splurge so I’m going to think about it!


We’re also completing our master bedroom design, and my plans for the little nook in our room are to make that a mini nursery for the newborn stage and also add another floor-length mirror for a secondary filming space. I’m looking at a few bassinets (this one and this one) because I want something pretty for the bedroom but obviously functional, too. I originally thought we would go with the halo bassinet I see everywhere, but I think it may be a little too big and bulky. Have any feedback for me on bassinets??

We’re still working on cleaning out the room, but I can’t wait to get started and share the final look with you in a few months.
