nursery inspiration

I promise not to turn this blog into a baby blog - really I do. But with a growing belly, stroller decisions {with or without a carseat?}, crib purchasing, a growing pile of lovely gifts and generous hand-me-downs, and of course name discussions, babies are definitely on the brain! And I have to admit that I am pretty excited about being able to decorate another room in our house.

I mentioned a few weeks ago that my office will be transformed into a nursery! I actually originally chose the colour scheme based on a Martha Stewart nursery {below} for inspiration - soft blues and oranges - anticipating a baby in here one day. I haven't decided 100% but am playing with the idea of changing it altogether! I've always liked soft natural colours for babies, but bright and dramatic is kind of cool too. And I wouldn't mind repainting the room with low-VOC paint.

I found some of these lovely fabric swatches on Tonic Living which are inspiring me!

And here are some nursery inspiration pics I have collected along the way. I'm keeping my eyes open for more...

As you can see, I'm a bit all over the place with my ideas here. Hopefully our decisions will be made easier next week when we find out if it's a boy or girl! Very excited! Happy weekend and stay tuned...
