The stack of books on my nightstand speaks for itself. Trying to soak up as much as I can right now, but I know that no book can teach you what you need to know as much as that little baby will when it's in my arms! I'm also thankful for my mom and closest friends who have navigated this road before- they have been the best resources yet!
The nursery isn't quite done yet, but the main pieces are in place and I'm just working on the details. I'm planning on leaving some blank canvas space so that I can personalize it once we know if the little one will be a bambino or a bambina. Our nursery has no "theme". The only theme is BABY. I love gender neutral nurseries and even if we knew the baby's gender, I wouldn't be decorating any other way. I knew I wanted white furniture, crisp bedding and creamy colors. I also want the room to be timeless and a dreamy place for baby to sleep. Here are some of my favorite inspiration photos.
Mark painted the room a buttery neutral, Benjamin Moore's Ylang Ylang. My mom painted a striped wall where the crib is by using a clear semi-gloss polyurethane paint which created a slight variation in color and texture. I love the striped wall detail so much. I'm certain our little one will have many sweet dreams snuggled in its little dreamland.
