Wall details

It's finally complete! Yay! I knew that I probably wouldn't finish Miles' nursery until after he was born, and to be honest it was not something I worried about while pregnant. I knew it would get done and we had all the basics (crib, glider, dresser, etc) but the actual decor and details could come later. While I wanted to keep most of the room neutral, I still wanted there to be different textures, prints and elements that made it fun. My close friend helped me design the room and pull all my ideas together. I wanted a bit of a safari look with lots of animals throughout, but without a full on "theme" room. 

My absolute favorite part of the entire room was the round mirror we found for above his crib! I even contemplated buying a second one for another room in my house, because I loved the design. A lot of people told me to invest in a good glider because it would make a difference since you spend so much time in it. However, I did not want to do that and ended up going with this one that was under $300 and I LOVE it! It's much more comfortable than I thought and rocks so easily. I switched out the ottoman for a lower pouf and find it works better for me. While I don't have a ton of wall storage right now, I opted for baskets and a larger dresser. This dresser is so spacious and can hold a ton of clothes, bedding, blankets, etc. And it will transition perfectly to a "big boy" room when Miles outgrows his crib. I do plan to maximize the closet space with tons of shelves and organizers, and will definitely share the final result on the blog when it's done. 

Everyone in the house (my mom, Stan and myself) love spending time in here now that it's all complete. I wasn't sure about spending the money on a rug because of all the spills, stains, etc that it would most likely see but we found this one for less than $200 which pulls the whole room together! In time, I plan to move out the animals in the corner (the plant was there just for photos, it normally goes in my office), and put a teepee there. I'm sure Miles will love that! 

I plan to do an update on Miles, his schedule and some new favorites that we have transitioned to so stay tuned for that in a few weeks! For now, you can read through all my past motherhood posts here, baby posts here and previous home decor posts here.
