Baby Room feedback

I have been enjoying the creativity that comes with planning our baby girl's room. There is something about gathering all the elements that is really fun for me. I FINALLY found a rug that I love when I was in Wichita last weekend. It fit the 'look' I was going for perfectly. The only things we don't have on hand so far are the glider and other accent pieces which we will probably get closer to when baby comes. I love that most of our furniture is from family...gives the room a sentimental touch. The chifforobe (fancy word that means a dresser than has drawers and a place to hang things) was my mothers, and mine, now will be our daughters. It has been in many garages and been revived many times. It was yellow before my dad and I refinished it to the current color many years ago. The crib was at B's mothers house for when she watched her grandchildren. We inherited it a few years back. So many memories, spring from these material things. I love thinking that when I am rocking our little girl that I will look around the room and history might speak. Maybe I will even pray some of the same prayers that mothers and grandmothers prayed. There is one element that I need help with, paint color: What color should we paint the room? Do you like the blue, pink or yellow version? Or do you have another idea I can try? I worked up these inspiration boards to lay everything out visually. I have been having fun with photoshop elements and learning a lot in the process.

I think the pink room is lovely! The others are nice too, but there's something about the pink that ties it all together so completely. I love your inspiration boards though!

Angela Spicer said...

carmen said...

Great idea with the boards! So, I prefer the pink or yellow. Such adorable choices you've made thought!

I love unique pieces/furniture that make a room homey! I think that a very pale pink would look the best. But you should do what you like, because it's your home. :) Miss you!

Let's see--I really like how the pink background looks with the reddish dresser (or whatever it is). I also like the blue. They all look adorable--can't wait to see it in person!

I've been sitting here for several min trying to decide between the yellow and the blue. I like them both but keep going back to the blue. I'm lovin' the way you laid all the elements out - I can't wait to see it! The paper globes are really neat!

Personally, I like the yellow. It's gender neutral and sunny.

Next, I choose pink. The monochromatic factor (the walls + the dresser) looks rad next to the apple curtains. Raise the roof for variations of complimentary colors!

Ultimately, I'll support any choice you make! :)

I personally like the blue...I think it's calming and more neutral than the other colors...but all three are so so pretty! love you!
