nursery series | boy or girl

Emily Oster

As I have mentioned in this post and this post, we weren't sure about finding out the gender of our baby. And while I didn't REALLY source/decorate the room before we found out, I knew what direction I was headed in if it was boy or if it was a girl. 

For a boy, I liked the idea of mixing reds and navy with the BM Caldwell Green paint color. Red is pretty out of my comfort zone but I did and still do really like the way a true red looks against the green.  I pictured a room that had a cool, somewhat expected, vintage vibe. Similar in feel to these great boys rooms...

For a girl, I initially loved the idea of doing a blush and dark green room. Emily Henderson shared this mood board for her daughter's room which is a bit more boho than I was thinking but still amazing.

Ultimately, the more I thought about the more I realized so much pink just wasn't us. Don't get me wrong I love blush and consider it one of my "power colors", I just didn't want to be so tied to it. Similar to my thoughts for a boys room, I wanted a nursery that had a vintage feel but mixed with more modern elements. A space that was a bit whimsical and romantic - sort of like the feel of these sweet girl's rooms...

Having an idea of how I wanted the room to feel was big in being able to quickly move forward once we found out we were having a girl! And what is more romantic and whimsical than a modern chintz!
