mint + tangerine

Well, folks, I'm having a boy.  No names yet, just nursery inspiration.  An aqua-minty-cantaloupe-tangerine sort of room is definitely something I can get behind.  Here's an inspiration board I very much enjoyed creating:

Nursery Inspiration board


No. 1  Peachy wall art (DiemDesign on Etsy)

No. 2  Wood Duck wall art (Land of Nod)

No. 3  Mint Wall Clock (Society6)

No. 4  Wild Orange table lamp (Target)

No. 5  Hurdal night stand (Ikea)

No. 6  Avandbar fabric (Ikea)

No. 7  Sniglar crib (Ikea)

No. 8  nuLoom Monegu rug (Wayfair)

No. 9  Baxton Studio rocking chair (Wayfair)

no. 10 Birch Wink Orange (Fabricworm) and Tile Canvas Aqua (Bobbie Lou's Fabric Factory) fabrics for changing covers

no. 11 Miriam Bos Roses Cream (Fabricworm), All the States Aqua (Bobbie Lou's Fabric Factory) and Stars Aqua Indigo (Bobbie Lou's Fabric Factory) for crib sheets

no. 12  Hemnes Dresser (Ikea)

no. 13 Flisat wagon (Ikea)

Which is not to say that all of these goodies are coming home to live with me, but it's fun to dream.  The crib and dresser we already have, and a rocking chair is a must as we were borrowing the previous one.  It seems I'll be making some curtains, changing pad covers and sheets.  Plenty of time for that.  First... back to those stockings, I suppose.

  4. Yippee! I hope this little boy is very active, full of wiggles and gets into everything. I hope he is very cuddly and sweet without ever any hint of guile. Later when he gets moving, I hope he is full of energy and curiosity and gets very dirty, the very epitome of boy.
