We are in the process of making one of our bedrooms a nursery. It's not as messy as it has been since we started, but it's not picture-ready either. In the meantime, I don't think I'm going to want to walk across the house to the crib. I am planning on breastfeeding, and I want baby next to me when I'm barely able to zombie crawl out of bed like a new mom.
This is what our bedroom looked like before
This is what it looks like after- that small space on the side will be the loudest part of the house for a few weeks, and I'd like to make it as serene as possible.
I fell in love with this modern bassinet from Monte Designs. Whether it's for a girl or boy, it looks so sleek. I also tried out Monte chairs and I loved how comfortable the Grazia glider is, it's a rocker and glider and swiveler (?) at once. I'm far from petite and most nursery chairs felt like I was eating them alive. This chair is big, comfortable but not so large it takes up space. The best part of the glider was having it custom made to the colors and fabric I wanted, so it'll look great in the living room years after Max is done with it.
Details; Furniture was purchased at Bel Bambini but you can buy the bassinet and chair both from Monte Designs. The organic blanket and ottoman are both from Target (the ottoman looks white online but I swear it's a heather gray). The poster is from Luke Beard, it's my favorite Mad Men quote when Don is lecturing Peggy on her insecurities. It's a pivotal point in their relationship and I can relate to that scene so well. I know it's not appropriate for baby, but this is still our bedroom and this definitely won't go in the nursery.
He's got a place to crash for the first few weeks and it's another thing crossed off my list.
