Thinking about a nursery for a little girl is really exciting. I am constantly looking for inspiration and ideas on the web.
I know that I don't want an explosion of pink to take over our existence, that is for sure. It's not that I will never dress my little girl in pink or have a splash of pink in her room, but I don't find that it should make up the entirety of her clothing choices, accessories or her bedroom decor. Some people go wild with this concept when they learn they are having a girl; they get pink carseats, pink carseat covers, pink highchair, then they paint the nursery pink that they coordinate with pink curtains, bedding and rugs....it's just way too much for me.
I moreso like the mixing of color combinations that you wouldn't ordinarily put together. I am thinking two or three of the following colors: Orange, Red, Grey, Teal, Yellow, Black or Fuschia.
Here are a few nurseries that I like.
This one is from a blog called My Shoestring Life. I am not a follower of this particular blog but this happened to come up in one of my random searches for nursery ideas. The post can be found here and a link to additional pics of the nursery on Flickr can be found here.
Isn't the combination of the seafoam hued wall, stark white furniture pieces and the vibrant yellow wonderful? I also love that on the wall art there are little punches of red as well.
Next, I found this one on Spearmint Baby. The link to the post about this fabulous nursery can be found here.
This one is great because I love the yellow, teal and grey color scheme. I think I would add a few more girly touches to it with the prints I chose to serve as the wall art, but looking at the colors of the wreath, the wall decal and bedding makes me happy.
