Today’s the day!! We finally have an evening free to paint the nursery! Once that is done then I really get to go crazy creating our sweet little girl’s room. So here I give you our nursery inspiration.
After much thought and countless hours of pinning, we have decided we want our baby’s room to be a cozy, chic, classic nursery. After waking up for the third time in the middle of the night to a crying, teething baby, I want to walk in to a relaxing, inviting room. Originally, I thought I wanted some bold and vibrant colors (like this one which is stunning!) but ultimately decided against that route for our nursery inspiration.
Three years ago, as we were falling asleep one night, I asked my dear husband what colors he imagined our future little girls nursery. Of course he thought I was crazy, but after I took a minute to explain that I was hoping to start a baby hope chest with a handmade puff quilt for our future children he thought I was a little less crazy. We decided then and there that for a girl we liked a deep, plum purple with shades of gray. We never settled on boy colors so lucky for us, our first is a little girl since I started that quilt three years ago (and still haven’t finished it).
Mr g is a graphic designer. With that means he went through years of art school being told to criticize everything…which he now has down to a perfected art. This is both a good and a bad thing. When it came to planning our wedding it meant he was involved and opinionated with all the little details from colors, to font choices in the program, to what type of flowers look well together. Now is no different. So thankfully I love him and will put up with his opinions and ideas. Now, it’s super handy not having to make these decisions on my own.
So all that to say, a few years ago when we were dreaming about our future he said he imagines a tall, free-standing white giraffe with silver spots in the corner of our nursery. Where the heck he came up with this, I have no idea!! But that’s what he imagines. We have been on the hunt since that day looking for this giraffe that he envisions but I have never found anything close. The closest I’ve found is this one. So if you see one, please let me know.

So with that in mind, we are creating a cozy, chic, classic nursery. Gray walls with purple accents and classic giraffes.
