The need to get things done around the house is hitting me full force. I can't help it. With Marcus' big boy bed coming at the end of the week, and the fact that we haven't even touched on the idea of a nursery, I'm in full-fledged nesting mode.
It will probably be several weeks until any nursery ideas come together, but Marcus' room is another story. A theme, or look, has been chosen, and I'm ready to make this room happen.
Here's some of inspiration we're working with.
We only have three bedrooms, and when grandparents visit we want them to have a place to stay without having to book a hotel. The full bed will work for two adults, and the twin trundle will be just right for Marcus. May I also add that I love the additional storage beneath the trundle, as well as under the bed (Marcus has already discovered that the under-bed-storage makes for the perfect little fort). There is no such thing as too much storage.
We have a dresser that was Scott's growing up, so we are going to re-stain that to a color that matches the bed, and I found some hardware that I think will tie in just perfectly.
After a little bit of contemplation the chevron won my heart (shocking). It resembles waves, and I'm just smitten with it.
The decor and accessories:
Navy and white will be the primary colors with pops of reds and yellows throughout.
My mom is making the comforter, and I just know it's going to exceed my expectations.
