My husband and I recently found out Baby #2 is a....GIRL!
I'm so excited that Auden will have a little sister as close in age as me and my sister were. I can't wait to watch them grow up and form the sweetest bond. Jon and Remi (our boy dog) will be outnumbered in the best possible way.
Now that we know the baby's gender, it's time to begin the nursery design! Unfortunately, Jon's man cave was a short-lived affair and will now become the new nursery. Because we recently painted and added board and batten in the room, we are going to keep that as the backdrop. The room is currently painted in Benjamin Moore's Charcoal Slate so to combat the dark hue, I'm going to add soft colors and textures to the space.
Several of the items from Auden's room will be moved over including the crib, crib bumper, floor lamp and rocker. And the dresser I'm going to use is a family piece that currently resides in our guest room. So the only items left to buy are a new crib skirt, curtains, rug, accessories and art.
Here's what I'm imagining at the present...
I want the overall feel to be warm, sophisticated and cozy with lots of character.
