With last week’s announcements about our growing family and second floor expansion, it’s no surprise that we have a nursery in the works. While the paint and decorating may be a few weeks away, I’ve been busy scouring blogland for inspiration. Little did I know, Apartment Therapy’s OhDeeDoh site is basically one-stop-nursery-inspiration-shopping. Here are some of the pictures that are striking my mother-to-be chord…
First off, I am loving this DIY approach to a little library. I think a pair of these book slings are definitely in my future. (And I love that this particular nursery sports a little elephant doll similar to the one that will live in our nursery!)
When it comes to inexpensive, colorful wall art, I am intrigued by the idea of fabric displayed in embroidery hoops, as seen here…
I’ve been seeing a lot of nurseries with a mix of lanterns and tissue paper flowers, and I love it. What a fun and simple design that serves as a larger-than-life mobile.
I love the idea of refinishing a plain old dresser with a bright pop of color like Dusty did here. And the storage above the changing area is right up my alley. Really, if I were having a girl, I would pretty much want to copy her whole nursery. No pastels, for me please!
How cute are these little stenciled numbers? Something like this would be a great way to embellish a few empty wall spaces…
And finally, I think a DIY ottoman is definitely calling my name. It can’t be that hard to make, right?
Want to check out some of these nurseries yourself? Here are the Ohdeedoh tours (or blogs) that correspond with each photo: 1) Leighton’s nursery 2) Graham’s nursery 3) Hadley & Kohen’s room 4) Kate’s nursery 5) Clark’s room 6) and Graham’s nursery again.
