poke's nursery inspiration board

not finding out the gender of our baby has made it a challenge (read: for me a lot more fun) to come up with a cute nursery! i always knew i wanted bright colors and nothing themed. i've never been into animals or letters or anything like that. i have always wanted something simple that would grow a little bit into the next stage in life without having to completely make the room over.

that being said, here is a 90% certain preview of poke's nursery which we sincerely hope to complete before the baby is born. ;)

  1. The color combination is very cute and unisex. I love the pop of green and the pattern on the quilt will definitely capture your baby's interest :)
    I am following you now and would love for you to follow along.

  2. I am in love with it! Well done, mama!

  3. I'm restraining from hitting the "add to cart" buttons!!! But it is soooooooooooooooo hard.

    i'm a new follower!

  5. I love it!! We LOVED not finding out with Wesley. I ADORED doing his nursery and found it to be so much fun (although slightly challenging) because we didn't know if he'd be a he or a she. I LOVE the nursery you've designed and know it'll be perfect for little Poke! People will give you a hard time because you've chosen not to find out, but it's the most wonderful surprise ever!

  6. Well, this just answered my previous question. Orange spice will look lovely in Poke's nursery. :) I LOVE the colors you chose!
