The Vision, Part II

H. and I refer to my nursery planning as "the vision". Every once in awhile I'll email him with the subject "the vision", and he knows what's coming.

My vision has no theme, no colors, no gender. It is, really, to make me happy. The room that is going to be baby's is tiny, and dark, and I don't think we'll spend a whole lot of time in there. And, truth be told, there is a good chance we won't stay in this apartment for more than a year after baby comes. So, yeah, the vision is my vision, and isn't over-the-top babyriffic.

1. Chair - Clare Fabric Living Room Chair from Macy's, in Cobalt
2. Rug - Kite Kilim rug from West Elm
3. Crib - Baby Mod Olivia 3-in-1 Crib from Walmart
4. Mobile - Somewhere Over the Rainbow Mobile from JennaEBee13 on Etsy
5. Dresser (changing table) - We'll be using one we already have, but similar to this one.

I've already shown you the first print we bought, which was the "Jenny at the Table" Maurice Sendak print, from Higglety Pigglety Pop:

But I've also got my eye on these two adorable prints from The Black Apple on Etsy:

The Cat's Pajama's
The Bee's Knees
Finally, the three city prints that used to hang over our bed?

Brooklyn, London, Toronto
Those will go in the baby's room. About time we got someone to represent Brooklyn. (those prints, by the way, are from birdAve on Etsy).


  1. Your baby is going to have the hippest room ever!

    1. Until he starts putting up posters of football players/movie stars/paints the walls black, I'm in charge!

  2. I love how it doesn't scream BABY!!!!!.....but it totally screams MY MOM HAS AWESOME TASTE!

    Love it!


    1. Haha, thanks! Hopefully it also screams "if mom is going to spend money, mom is keeping this stuff forever"!

  3. How exciting! I love the mood board and the all the prints! I love the direction of nurseries these days. When my kids were born, the whole theme thing was strong! Think Beatrix Potter and some primary colours thrown in.

    1. Thanks Barbara! I love Beatrix Potter stuff as well - they have an adorable collection of BP stuff at Baby Gap at the moment!
