nursery tour






As promised, I am posting pics of the finished nursery... finally! What once was our home office, has now been changed into Bun's new room. Instead of going the traditional pastel baby route, we decided to go with a gender-neutral cream and red (persimmon to be exact) combo. Also, the owl theme just sort of happened accidentally... can never have too much owl-y goodness. Oh yes, and of course the room became a perfect place to display some of our Barbapapa collection and Peanuts/Snoopy stuff too. So what happened to our home office? Well... I will post some pics of the new office space we have redone as well.... so those pics are coming soon! Now it's time for the waiting game.... Bun is due June 5th!

kelli g. { bug miscellany } said...

such a beautiful room! it's so neat to see strong color in a little one's room. i'm not a huge pastel fan myself, so i always imagined if we ever have a mini-munchkin, it will be surrounded by color from day one. :)
and, you're right: you can NEVER have too much owl-y goodness. :)
