Baby Brain: The Nursery is Complete

So the nursery… AHHH THE NURSERY. This is something that I started late in my pregnancy. Mostly because of the past two miscarriages, starting the nursery would mean that this pregnancy might actually last, that this baby would be ok, and working on the nursery became this thing that I was desperate to start but terrified to begin. Like if I started it would be putting all my eggs in the basket and let myself actually hope.

So I started late, which is why it has taken me so long to finish it. But finally today I hung the curtains, the last project for the room, and I was able to sit back in my rocking chair and take in the room with a sigh of relief. It was finished, I was still pregnant, and I adored the room. Ok so it might take me months to decorate a space but all that planning at least always leads me to a space I really adore.

Since the walls were already a pale green and since we found out we were having a boy, and since Mr. Rogue loved the color we decided to keep the green walls for the nursery. That’s what started the whole theme – woodland, nature, soothing. I filled the main pieces of the room with creams and whites, pieces that I can use again easily for another boy or a sweet baby girl.

THE TOY BENCH WAS A GIFT FROM MY GRANDMOTHER, A TRADITION SHE STARTED AS A GIFT TO ALL THE GREAT GRAND CHILDREN

For the accents I picked various woods like the side table, the rocking horse and the picture frames. And then I spotted the tree bookshelf in a magazine and knew it was the perfect final piece to go with our theme. The book shelf in face may just be my favorite piece in the entire room but then again I also love the distressed crib AND the gorgeous rocking chair!

ALL THE WOOD ACCENTS PLAY RIGHT INTO THE WOODLAND THEME – I LOVE HOW MUCH TEXTURE IT BRINGS TO THE ROOM

HOPEFULLY THIS KID ENJOYS READING AS MUCH AS I DO

It’s a quiet room, it’s a soothing room, it’s a room that appeals more to my senses than to a babies but since we plan on getting pregnant again quickly I will be able to rock out my little boys room in whatever fashion he wants soon. Until then I can hopefully manage the late nights and the crying fits in a room that fills me with serenity. Or if serenity is too much to ask for at least it’s a pretty room to look at!

I love the diaper cake in there, but I think my favorite piece is the tree bookshelf. Everything looks perfect.
