Here is our color scheme:
One thing about decorating a nursery is that it never really is for the baby, we all know it's really for the mother. When thinking about ours, I was determined to give it a style that reflects the rest of our place, not something that was overly "baby". When looking for pieces and deciding on a color scheme, I kept in mind that I wanted to decorate in a style that our son would still like when he gets a little older, so I steered clear of anything looking to "precious" or "lullabye" (not that there's anything wrong with those, it just doesn't reflect the rest of my style).
Right now, Brian and I are living in an apartment, and have a small little room for the baby, but we are moving early next year, so we decided not to paint any of the walls. Even if we were painting, I think we would stick with white walls and have two feature walls - one in warm grey, and one with some kind of wallpaper.
I found a great vintage dresser here in Houston, and the owner also custom-paints, so she transformed it from a country cream color to a gorgeous, modern azalea leaf blue. I love how it turned out - the elegant, vintage shape is a great contrast with the bold blue. I love the idea of an eclectic nursery with bold pops of color. Right now we have it topped with some of my vintage milk glass and a fun yellow typewriter, but once baby comes, those will move to a bookshelf, and the changing pad will live there.
I will post more updates as we piece together the new space. :)
