My original "girl" inspiration was this:
I quickly realized I was more so in love with the different shades of pink and gold contrast idea, as well as the texture of that photo. I am also thinking that to add some midnight blue thrown in as an accent color, along with the gold and grey.
Bare with me as I try to explain it further. You can see that the top left corner is my closet, the top right is my bath, and the top middle is my 2 person sink. The right side is where my bed, dresser, and nightstands will be.
The bottom right will actually look more so like this:
OH, hey! There's a baby name throw hinting itself in there! Not sure if I'm going to go Clairelin or Clairlin yet (2 syllables for both spellings). Hmmm..
So the left is a sliding door to our backyard. The crib and a skinny yet tall bookshelf will be over a grey rug. I'm still not100% sure about the decorations, but I am thinking this is the most "bang for my buck" with the nursery layout design.
And this is the far back corner... the area that you would walk into upon opening the door. The blue "L" shaped contraption is actually and "L" shaped dresser set, which fits perfectly for the area and space need (99% sure anyway). I bought it a few years ago from Goodwill because of it's good bones, and all it would need is a paint job and new nobs. The rug would be a faux white lambskin, the gold circle will be a poof, and the great chair on the right is my mother's rocking chair. She rocked my brothers and I in it, and I plan on rocking my babies in it, too. The gold above the chair is a mirror.
So, for this layout, all I would need to purchase is:
the crib the skinny/tall bookshelf
- tall circle table
- changing pad
- baskets for organization
curtains and golden rod
- pillows for rocking chair
- decor :)
And my DIY crafts that I would need to get on are:
- paint the rocking chair
- paint the crib
- paint the dresser set
- sew a crib skirt
- make the name banner
- make the ombre dot decor
Not too bad for a VERY budgeted room! Fingers crossed I can stick with the colors and that it is a girl! :)
