As mentioned yesterday, we’ve officially started on the nursery. I’m super excited for the whole process and can’t wait until everything starts to come together. A reader made a comment about us already having the crib up, which I guess seems early to her. I just figure, we have the time now, so why not get started. I’m a planner and I hate waiting until the last minute, so we’re going to get as much done as possible. Less stress and who knows how I’ll be feeling in the last trimester. Since I’m right in the middle of it and pieces are starting to trickle in (the rug arrives today!) I thought I’d share our modern nursery inspiration with you.

I’ve had a couple family members and friends ask, “what’s the theme,” and to be honest, I never thought about a theme. I will say now, we’re staying very true to who we are when it comes to the whole parenting and baby thing. Meaning, we’ll do our best to have everything fit in with our lifestyle. We’re big on being present, living in the moment, mindset, clean eating, and living in little clutter. It’s who we are naturally, and while I know having a baby changes your life, I don’t think adding to the family will change who we inherently are. With that being said, we wanted Baby D’s nursery to reflect our style, but also be versatile and functional. When I say versatile, I wanted to invest in furniture that I know we could use down the road either as she grows or if we move, in another room. The only furniture piece we’ve ordered that is baby, is the crib, which means if it gets too cluttered or I get bored, I can move pieces into other rooms. We’re also not “theme” people. So as cute as all the bears, elephants, and hearts, can be, it’s just not us. So, no theme here. We’re sticking to modern, neutral pieces we know we’ll love for a very long time.
Once the room is done, I’ll share a review of some of the products we get. Whether they’re worth the investment or not, etc. I will say, I’m already obsessed with the crib. Easy to put together, modern and chic, and pretty low, so no need to stand on my tippy toes to put the baby down.
Since we’re on the topic, I’m going to sprinkle in baby and mom topics here and there, but if you’re interested in my motherhood journey and love seeing these types of posts, I’d love to hear from you. Maybe you could also let me know what you want to read from me as I start this brand new journey.
