NEUTRAL WOODLAND ADVENTURE NURSERY
Updated: Jul 31, 2021
Where do you even begin when planning a nursery?
I’m not one to leave my baby’s gender a surprise until delivery day. The planner in me just can’t handle it! However, we do prefer to find out at the 20-week ultrasound, which is as much suspense as I can take!
Of course, I already had a Pinterest board of ideas for boys and girls before finding out we were having a son. As this was our first baby, and God willing, we’d have more, I knew I wanted a somewhat neutral nursery so that we could use the furniture and baby gear again in a future nursery.
Another aspect that was important to me was choosing a theme that our son would grow into –something that he would love beyond the toddler stage.
And finally, there were messages I wanted to convey through the design: Be true to yourself; seek adventures; live your faith.
So I settled on a Woodland Adventure nursery theme, but in place of the typical browns and greens, I chose white and grey with wood accents. I would say that 96% of the room was sourced from Pottery Barn Kids and Hobby Lobby. I loved how light and airy the room turned out, while still feeling like a boy room.
