Anyway, since we're not finding out the gender I knew we needed neutral nursery colors and theme (I wasn't about to wait until baby was actually here to start decorating - the planning and prep work is half the fun!). As far as colors go that was an easy choice - "my" colors have always been sage green, chocolate brown, and white, from my high school bedroom to our wedding colors:
I just love that color combo and think it's perfect for a boy or a girl. As far as the theme goes, I found the below bedding set awhile back and loved the idea of trees, deer, squirrels, birds, and other woodland animals. I was originally going to get this set, but decided it was a bit too "matchy-matchy" and wanted to have more basic bedding with woodland accents elsewhere - this was a good starting inspiration anyway:
So here are some other inspiration photos of ideas of gathered here and there, and items I've ordered. The room will be pained a sage green, we'll have white furniture (crib, dresser & shelf), and a chocolate brown rocker/recliner chair.
I bought a dresser like this off Craigslist that Tyge will paint white, and we'll use that as a changing table
We'll also do a frame gallery above it, filled with the artwork I've ordered from Etsy below:
I love this popular Pinterest idea of using this Ikea shelf as a horizontal storage unit - it'll go under the window with storage baskets underneath, and a patterned cushion on top:
And a few woodsy accent ideas:
So there you have it - my ideas for our woodland themed nursery! I may wait to do some of the accent pieces until baby is here so I can get more feminine or masculine ones. I can't wait to see it all come together in the actual room over the coming months. Of course, it will be even more complete come 8/24 when there's a little one in there! :)
