The view walking into my baby boy's room
Well, there you have it folks. That's what his room looks like :) His room is a mixture of new and old as well as lots of homemade items that are very special. When my parents came a few weeks ago my mom was so wonderful and made his crib skirt, a valance for the window, cushion for the rocking chair, comforter for his crib and covered the lampshade in matching fabric! She's extremely crafty and never ceases to amaze me!
The little white dresser was in John's nursery when he was a baby and remained in his room for many years afterwards. The beautiful blanket over the rocking chair was knit by John's Aunt Mary Ann, so sweet and truly a work of art and love. The rocking chair was my grandma's. When her first grandbaby was born she had it made (she's on the short side, like me) so it is specifically made for a petite person. The bookshelf is from John's parent's house and the blank space above it on the wall is waiting for baby boy's beautiful cross stitching that John's mom is currently working on. The prints above the crib were given to us as a Christmas gift from our dear friend, Alice. His room is chock full of love and specialness!
There really isn't a theme because I didn't care to choose one, honestly. I like to keep things classic so that they last for awhile. Before we knew he was a he, I knew that I didn't want a purely pink or (Carolina) blue room. I wanted to go with something a little more neutral but with a nod towards whatever gender the baby ended up being. John actually thought up the green walls and I thought that navy and white accents would be perfect. I really love how everything turned out in his nursery, I've already started sitting in there imagining the hours that I'll be spending in that little room over the coming years. I can't wait to meet this sweet boy!
