Henry's Nursery Gets a Makeover
Henry is 16 months old today! And I'm feeling a little guilty because it can be such a bummer to be a second child. Poor Henry's nursery did not get nearly the same attention as his sister's. Heck, he was lucky to have a crib when he came along (and almost didn't).
His room did double duty as a nursery/guest room for a while until his sister needed the bed for her new "big girl" status. Now his room is a little bereft. And girly looking. With lots and lots of brown.
This picture was taken before the full size bed moved to Caroline's room. The room is plenty big - you can't even see the crib or dresser in the pic! Above are the items staying in the room: Crib, floor lamp, personalized name print, and dresser. I can't find a pic of our dresser anywhere. The one above mimics the look but not the size; ours is a full size dresser. The weird animal/bird purchases I made (I chalk them up to pregnancy hormones) are going bye-bye.
There seemed to be a common color theme in my inspiration photos (found here, here, and here). Lime green, blue or turquoise, and white.
Poor Henry's room desperately needs color. For me this feels bold. What do you think?
The room has a big double window so I'm planning to put up two curtain panels on each side - one green, one blue. And the shelving unit underneath. I'll probably have to find another lamp too now that he's too squirmy to actually use the dresser as a changing table.
