Baby Boy’s Nursery Before

A few weeks ago, I shared Lily’s toddler room (which was recently featured on Apartment Therapy!). I love that Lily’s room is organized and has evolved to suit her spirited and playful personality. I wish I could say the same for Townes’ room. Sadly his room has been somewhat neglected.  In our defense, he spent his first 6 months in a sleeper in our room but his room is now being fully utilized so I need to get on it!

Aside from moving a few pieces around to accommodate his crib and a chair (and excess hand-me-down furniture from Jacob’s room), it is still very much the same old playroom.

I’ve committed to giving him his own room by the time he turns 1. I have 3 ½ months to get it done. My target is to have a design board by the end of the month. DSC_0842

Decisions to make:

  • Do we keep the current furniture?
    • If yes, is the current furniture configuration working?
  • Do we keep the primary color scheme?
  • Decide on theme

Items on my list to incorporate into the plan

  • Add curtains (the temporary paper shade HAS TO GO!)
  • Incorporate a diaper changing area
  • Switch the existing chair for a rocker (every nursery needs a rocker)

The room is 10×14. What are your thoughts on the theme or layout? I’d love to hear your suggestions!!

    I like your suggestions….shade has to GO and definitely need a rocking chair. Diaper change area would be nice if possible. Add more bright colors and perhaps some large animal murals on the wall and ceiling or stars, moon, sun!! Guess I am getting carried away. Good luck…anxious to see what you decide…hugs…Sue p.s. stay warm
