Well, it appears that everything in Nashville has shut down for the day, well at least my yoga studio, my neighborhood lunch spot and every store and restaurant I follow on Twitter and Facebook that have announced their closing for the day. So, I guess I am shut IN for the day. Taking full advantage of this, I have changed back into my flannel PJ pants and bathrobe and have nestled up in front of the computer to take care of some work. Easily distracted as I am, though, I now find myself scouring the net for more nursery design ideas. I have cleared out my nursery room of old furniture now, and the next step is to paint (with only 12 weeks to go, it is about time). Inspired by the pretty white snow outside, I am trying to find the perfect shade of white, ivory or beige to paint the room.
Here are a few shades I have found that I like:
|Benjamin Moore White Dove (lots of designers use this one)|
Benjamin Moore China White (another fave of designers)
|Restoration Hardware Cloud White|
|Benjamin Moore Cloud White|
And here are a few inspirational nursery pics I found yesterday poking around:
|I am trying to decide whether or not it will be too crowded if I have a daybed/single bed in the baby's room. |
I think it will come in quite handy. I love how this one looks.
|I love this look. Again, clean and neutral. |
The glider and pouf look like Serena and Lily, and I love the neutral chest for a changing table, as well as the contemporary art above the chest. It is fun, but sophisticated.
|This from the same nursery as above. Again, a sleek simple crib, neutral bedding.|
|Another simple crib with white and pink bedding. |
The wall color looks pretty close to Pantone's color of the year for 2011: Honeysuckle.
Probably a little too bold for my taste, considering I will be spending a
large portion of my life in this room for the next few years to come.
|Love this neutral look again. Simple and elegant with the pretty bedding details.|
|This is the same Oeuf Sparrow Crib I mentioned above, but in grey. |
I like this room for its organic look and still neutral colors, with pops of bright colors here and there.

Well, that was fun. Now back to work.
