My Nursery Inspiration Board

Now that we know we are having a boy, I'm all about planning the nursery. While my husband of course would like to lay down astroturf and install a soccer field atmosphere complete with a scoreboard and goals...I on the other hand am dreaming of a soothing, calming nursery for our little one.

I'm very excited to share my nursery inspiration board here, mainly because I would LOVE your feedback, but also because it is my very first photoshop collage!

It all starts with this pretty Full Circle bedding set designed by American quilter Denyse Schmidt for The Land of Nod. I love the color combo and  the bit of plaid that peeks out from the circles and the outside of the bumper. It was the only set I kept going back to so I think this is the winner. Our crib is an off-white, so this will work great. I'll know for sure once I receive the fabric swatches that I ordered.

From there, I knew I had to pull those pretty greens and blues from the bedding so for paint, I'm really loving these shades from Pottery Barn's Benjamin Moore Collection. The blue is called Sweet Bluette and the green is Stem Green. I think we'll paint the entire room in the blue and maybe do a low stripe in the green. We'll see.

I love the idea of accessorizing with green storage pieces like this basket, also from The Land of Nod. I figure if my son will one day have a soccer-field inspired type room that his dad has always dreamed of, I might as well invest in some pieces that will go along with it!

As for lighting, I'm torn between a gorgeous pendant lamp such as this beauty from Oilo that I spotted on LaylaGrace.com today or a ceiling fan. I've grown to enjoy ceiling fans and I think for a baby, it could be a nice choice.

I'm currently on the hunt for a dresser/changing table and will also have a white gliding rocker in the room so we're just about ready to start.

So, what do you think? Let me know!!

Do you have an image of this room all done- I would love to see it!? I love the bedding and considering this for my baby's room. I was going to choose a similar blue for walls maybe more towards a turquoise color, White furniture, Little Castle Monaco Glider in Pebble Stone(gray) and Pebble Snow(white) piping. White Cordless roman Shades from PB Kids, Round White Flokati rug or Gray and White striped rug from Dwell, and Green accents(storage bins, lamp base with white shade from Crate and Barrel, etc). I like the green strip on wall idea!
