One of the hardest parts about not knowing, was figuring out how to design the nursery. We knew we had to keep it gender neutral, and easy enough to add a pop of pink or blue if we wanted to.
After looking around Pinterest for ideas, I decided on a modern safari "theme." I didn't want to go too heavy on the theme, because I hate hate hate super themey rooms (pretty sure I just made up the word "themey" :).
This became my favorite room in our old house & it was a little sad saying goodbye to this room when we moved into our new house.
I decided to take a trip down memory lane and share some photos from Raegan's nursery. I have been thinking a lot about how to design R's big girl room and have plans for it to look completely different. Stay tuned!
Here are some photos of R's nursery, thanks to the talented photographer Ashlee Gadd (If you're in the Sacramento area, definitely consider her for your photos!). She was so fun to work with. Also check out her blog, Where My Heart Resides, here.
