Thoughts of a Girlie Nursery

My recent post about Natalie's nursery and a very good comment/question from Nora, who asked, " Is there anything we can help you out with for your little ones' nursery?" ... got me obsessing thinking about BGV 2.0's nursery.

Even before I found out I was pregnant for a second time, I thought we'd just transition Natalie to the room across the hall and keep the nursery - as-is. It's done in primary colors, the decorations are totally unique and adorable, I really like it, it's done and ready, it's the practical thing to do, ...

However, since finding out this one is a little girl, I have been so, so, so tempted to create a more girlie space ... I am not a huge fan of pink, but there are some cute bedding options out there, and tonight I allowed myself to look around a bit.

Like this one from Land of Nod - Oh! What a Beautiful Morning!

It's definitely more neutral than girlie, but I love it. It's so serene and peaceful. According to the description, one side of the bumper has a sunrise while the other has a sunset.

Again from Land of Nod, All Aflutter Butterfly Bedding

More than anything, this color combination called out to me. I like pinks that fall under the bright category, and the addition of orange and brown just makes me smile! I also like that the print is graphic and just a little grown-up.

Penelope - PBK

I cannot believe how much I like this room. I mean, come on, the walls are pink for goodness sake! But that tree and the little birdies are too adorable to resist.

Oh, I never should have allowed myself down this dangerous path ... toward spending too much money (I don't even have a job) and doing something totally impractical and making more work for my husband ... but a mommy-to-be and her female fetus can dream, can't we? :)

I love the first one with the sunrise & sunset! So cute :-)

I have the PBK Penelope collection for my daughter, but in a twin size bed set and I love it! She's so excited to go to bed each night with her birdies. I have found a lot of stuff on ebay for cheaper so I would start camping out there.

I love the Beautiful Morning. I wish I had seen that at some point. We would have tried to do a knock off. :)
And the PB one is sort of sophisticated in its cuteness and would look really cute with pale green walls, with a tree painted on it (really spares branchy-type) with fabric leaves in all sorts of cute patterns. I've seen it somewhere. I'll try to find the link.
Ooh, or, you could have your friends each design a leaf or tree, like you did the letter for Natalie. How cute could that be?

I love the butterflies with the brown - my friend just did her little girl's nursery in pinks and browns and it is so so sweet.


i just did my daughters room in very soft and muted pinks, browns, and off-whites. it is not super girlie but gives off a feminine vibe that i absolutely love
