Nursery Inspiration

Now that one of the empty two bedrooms in our house has some lovely light green paint on the walls, I probably ought to start thinking of nursery ideas.

Here’s what the walls look like as of yesterday!
Pardon the quality. I will definitely take better pics as it progresses.

While we don’t find out the gender of Baby O. until Monday, I like more of the gender neutral nurseries to begin with. Thanks to Pinterest and their toolbar, I’ve been pinning a lot of inspiration photos to my “Baby” board.

It seems like I like a mix of eclectic, modern, and soft looking nurseries. I want to pair light and dark furniture with the room. Also, since Greg is a Baylor Bear, I had a fun idea of making the nursery the “baby version” of green and gold – light green and light yellow with little bears here and there! Tasteful, mind you. I don’t want it to look like bears/Baylor threw up everywhere. If Baby O. is a girl, pops of pink would be fun, and if it’s a boy, pops of blue.

Here are some pins I really like that can incorporate those wants.

This photo incorporates all green walls (which we will have) along with mixing the dark and light with pops of color. I really like the wall art.

I’ve kind of been obsessed with chandeliers lately. After all, we just put one up in our master bathroom. Could Baby O. use one? I also love the lightness of this nursery.

This is just a really cute, eclectic space. Inspires me to mix patterns and shapes.

I like the wall very much, but not sure if I want to take the time to do something like this. Look how it’s green and yellow, too. I also enjoy those Dr. Seuss pictures.

This is a good mix of dark and light, and the rug is super cute.

I just love that wall mural and the lamp. Great colors to add into the mix.

Simplistic, yet clean! I really like this. Also incorporates dark and light furniture.

Has Pinterest inspired your interior spaces lately?


Also, I added a little Pinterest button up top on my link bar if you would like to follow me there!


  1. I love them all! Good luck deciding, I could never make up my mind! Ha! Sic ‘Em Bears!

  2. Beautiful pictures!! Can’t wait to see what you decide on!

  3. Baby O definitely needs a chandelier! My fave is the 3rd pic, so cute! I can’t wait to hear the gender. I need your address too, can you email me? :)

  4. Wow, that last pin was super chic! I like the paint you’ve chosen and am excited to see where this heads!

  5. things are really progressing–love those green walls!! so excited to find what you’re having!

  6. I love the green paint you used!

  7. I think that if Baby O is a girl, she NEEDS a chandelier!

  8. Chandilier is a must!

  9. I love your inspiration! I especially love the light turquoise room with the grey dresser! I never found out the gender for either of my boys so my nursery is very gender neutral too! We have a faded primary colors with yellow walls and a pea green and red pops everywhere, it’s still my favorite room in the house! And surprisingly Ikea has some awesome baby room stuff! Can’t wait to see it finished! We alse have a chandelier!

  10. This is SO exciting! I love the green and gold idea for Greg! And of course Baby O needs a chandelier.. what baby doesn’t?!

  11. These are so adorable! My favorites are the first and third. I think I’m starting to like nurseries that don’t look like nurseries, if that makes sense:)

  12. I love that 3rd nursery so much!!

  13. These are all cute, but a few of them didn’t have that nursery feel, you know? They looked like someone picked a random room and stuck a crib in it. (I’m thinking of pictures 1 and 7). The rest are great!

    I like neutral colors too with points of color here and there. It’s also fun to pull a room together by using a few key colors. Good luck!

  14. All of these nurseries are so sweet! You can’t go wrong using any of these for inspiration!

  15. Love all of then – I know baby o will have a fabulous room

  16. How sweet! I love the idea of the baby shades of Baylor’s colors. Trace has a Penn State Nursery! :) I love that mural…how stinking cute!

  17. these are great nurseries!

  18. I’m obsessed with chandaliers, too. The second and third pictures made me want a baby RIGHT NOW so I could have an awesome nursery [not really. I just liked the rooms a lot].

  19. love them!!! i can’t to see what you decide. my faves are the second and 3rd one. :) baby O. is going to have a fab room!

  20. Ohhh, what a cute idea! And I have a feeling you will of course keep it tasteful and not too Baylor-y, haha. Gotta say that I LOVE that first pintrest photo. All the pictures about the crib, too cute. What a perfect way to get great ideas for the nursery!

  21. Love all of those nursery ideas! I’ll be pinning some=-)

  22. Wait wait wait. I know I’ve been MIA, but I missed the announcement that you’re expecting? Really? CONGRATS!!!!

  23. We have light green walls too! But we have all white furniture that we painted and pink/white bedding. Actually it’s more of a coral color and it’s not exactly what I wanted but I will have to work with it!

  24. Baby O most definitely deserves a chandelier!!!!! I love all these pics! Especially the pink and green nursery…gorgeous!!!!!!!

    Thank you for linking up Meg!

  25. Awww this must be so exciting… I really love light green walls for girls. My sister did that for my neice and did a green and pink theme with dark wood. I can’t wait to see how it turns out- O-mazing for sure! ;)

  26. Eeeeeep! can’t wait to hear if Baby O. is a girly or boy! YAY!!!

  27. That pottery barn kids/chandelier nursery is to die for. Drooooooling.

    Notes She Wrote

  28. I really like the room with the green stripes on the wall. Depends if you want to go with gendered colors I suppose?

  29. I love the green walls! Just be careful about where you hang the pictures. I hung some I thought were super cute and caught Wee ‘Burb pulling them down at about 9 months. So make sure they’re out of baby dangle reach :)

  30. I love that 3rd nursery too!!
