Nursery Photos

Ok guys, so here is my attempt at Nursery Photos. And by that I mean, I am terrible at taking pictures of indoor spaces. Everything looks so cramped and condensed. Granted, it IS a bit cramped, since we had to combine a guest bedroom and a nursery, but I promise it's not as bad as it looks in photos. Also, after looking at some nursery photos that are so "perfect," I realize ours is not like that. We didn't have much of a theme, except I wanted everything in really bright colors. You will see we went more towards lime greens, blues, and oranges, but there's a bit of everything. So, without further ado, here is our very un-themed, unprofessional Nursery. I think he'll love it :)

Ok, terrible picture here, but it's the widest angle I got. You can see you the room functions as both nursery and guest room.

We wanted a little bit of Monte in the room, for after he's gone...

Ikea dresser/changing table.

We had these special made. They are hand painted on wood. Again, it's a good thing B is involved to pick out "little boy stuff" or we would have ended up with jungle animals instead of adorable robots.

Bear snuck into a photo here...

And then, since we had limited space due to the guest bedroom, we decided to convert a space in our living room that had previously been under-utilized as a sitting area. So now, it's a Play Area and place to nurse or rock the baby.

And that's it. Considering it's a rented house (aka no fun painting to be done), I think it turned out pretty well. The rocker is now my favorite place to sit in the evening and blog from and dream about the future. I hope he likes it!


  1. Ohhh it's super cute, it makes his imminent arrival all the more exciting. I am in love with the whale painting, the giraffe and the aerostatic balloons :) Also the rocking dinosaur!
    I really like it, you have a lot of space!

  2. I love it, too! Especially cute: the hot air balloons and your bookshelf. I love the rocking dinosaur, as well. :-) Great job!

  3. Cute! I think you did a great job tying everything together with the color scheme. I love tasteful, non-themed nurseries! That living room corner is especially sweet -- I can imagine you'll have a ton of memorable moments there with the little guy!

  4. It looks awesome! I love how colorful it is! And I LOVE the robot prints.

  5. I love it! The hot air balloons and mobile in the nursery are great. And the play area is AWESOME!! It looks like to perfect spot to just enjoy your little man. Made with love is better than "professional" any day!

  6. So cute! I love all the pictures. We got the same dresser in white. We also are making a corner of our living room a baby area. Still working on that, though. Having babies early really messes with making all the baby preparations.
    I need to post photos but my mother in law is currently camped out in our nursery so I have to wait until she leaves and it's clean again.
    I am ready for you to have this baby now. :) I'm so excited for you!

  7. Your nursery looks amazing! You guys are so ready for the arrival of this baby :)

  8. I love it! I love the different colors and photo bombing kitty! We are putting our furniture up on Friday but like you, have no particular theme. I do think it's easier to do a girls nursery...
    Also, like you, we are in a rented property so limited as to what we can do/paint etc.
    Hope you're doing ok - I am well and truly ready to evict this baby now! :)

  9. I love it- especially the robot prints and the whale! We have a mix of two themes which I am now regretting but oh well. You guys did a great job. :-)

  10. Love, love, love it! It looks guys did a great job. I especially love the cozy little corner in your living room!


Don't just sit there, say something!
