Nursery Inspiration

As promised, I’ve completed an initial draft of the nursery design inspiration board and wanted to share.  The initial color idea for the room was fuchsia and tangerine with the emphasis on fuchsia and pops of tangerine to just break up the space.  Here are the inspiration pictures:

via pinterest. I love how saturated the colors are and the feeling that the room evokes.

Suzie: Modern Declaration - Sweet orange & pink girl's nursery design with two tone walls paint ...

via pinterest.  Much calmer and serene but still punchy with color.

So that is the color scheme I chose and now I’m attempting to combine that with my love for the Petal Pusher Wallpaper mentioned earlier.  Here’s what I’ve come up with so far:

The room is a large bedroom, clocking in around 18′ x 11′.  So there is a ton of space to use and (my understanding is that) babies don’t really need that much space. 🙂  So I’ve decided to turn the full-size guest bed that’s been living in the room into a daybed with built-in storage on the back wall.  The day bed will get the lovely fuchsia linen headboard (and sides) and the cabinetry will be white. The rest of the room consists of the traditional nursery furnishings.

I’ll share the process as I go along but I’m most excited about the wallpaper and the pink ceiling!  Just to give you an idea of how far we have to go…here is the room when we moved in:

Since then, the painted wallpaper has been removed, the walls and popcorn ceiling skim coated, and the floors are currently being installed.  By the end of the weekend, I hope that the floors will be finished, trim installed, and wallpaper ordered and scheduled to be installed.  Wish me luck!  If you wish to follow along, feel free to check out my Nursery board on Pinterest.
