Not much to explain with this post, but I thought I’d show you what I’ve been up to since my last “nesting update” … we relocated the guest room furniture and decor in the now nursery to another room. Then, we painted the nursery walls and created a “feature wall” for the crib. I say we… but really, Michael and I just did the guest room stuff and picked out the colors and the type of “design” for the feature wall. We considered this and this … but ultimately went with this. But it was my sweet mother-in-law, who came up from Dallas, that actually painted the whole nursery and did the stripes for us. I couldn’t be more grateful! Here’s a look at the before and after of the room. More to come obviously as the room gets filled with things and as the next few months go by leading up to baby girl’s arrival.
(I should note…there are no ceiling lights in this room, nor am I any good at taking photos, so the lighting and the photos in general aren’t going to be up to par, sorry.)
Cash is always photo bombing…
Since it’s a girl! 🙂 We are indeed going with the soft, peach-y orange for her nursery. Remember the inspiration boards I posted a few weeks ago? That’s the plan!
You may have noticed the swatches seem really similar in the above pictures, but in this one, you can see that Serengeti Sand is much lighter. The color on the left is Whispering Peach, which we went with, and the right color is Sugared Peach, which I felt was too pink.
You can see that in the natural light, the color looks very light and almost white. But the color changes all day long depending on the amount of sunlight in the room – it’s just lovely.
I love how the color looks different in the yellow light of lamps at night.
TAPE OFF STRIPES.
My mother-in-law is a rock star and not only painted the whole room – two coats! – she also laid the tape for the stripes and then painted the stripes … she spent the entire day doing this for her granddaughter and it was just the sweetest thing! I could never have done all of that with my preggo energy being less than I’m used to.
Again, the lighting changes drastically in this room throughout the day and it transforms the new wall colors right along with it!
