The nursery is well underway. There is still so much work to do, and my crazy type a self feels like I’m behind schedule already. I have 3.5 months before he’ll be here. I admitted I was crazy. We have a 2 bedroom house right now. Since he’ll be sleeping in a bassinet in our room for the first few months of his life, and we’ll be moving in the first few months of 2017 (he’ll be born in October), we’ve decided to make a combo guest/nursery room.

That room is already a guest room, but I had just thrown all of our random outcasts in there when we moved in – it had no real theme or purpose other than a bed for our guests. But to finish it up was easy. I needed a bed, some decor, and a little table by the bed! I’d loved to have dresser or bigger table for our guests to put their bags on, but that’ll have to be on the list for our new house! All of this was already in the guest room so I just had to bring it all together.

Our entire house and the nursery has lots of blues, greys, greens, and white added in to bring the light so it was easy to feature those colors in this room! I grabbed this duvet insert to give that down comforter feel, but keep it cool since we’re in Florida. I figure I can also easily add a duvet cover to change things up if I ever feel like it. The pillows are from our couch that we don’t use in the living room, but you can find similar ones here. The floral pillow is fabric from Joann’s clearance bin that I made a cover from. Once those things were set, the room was all ready for decoration!

For the wall decor, I made a little gallery wall of old family heirlooms and pictures surrounding this mirror from Target that everyone has. The nightstand I kept it simple. I’ve had the eiffel tower lamp for years – like 15 years. I love it so, so much, and it represents a lifelong dream for me so I’ll never throw it away. You can find similar ones on amazon, but none that are silver.

So there it is! The half guest room of our house! I love the way everything came together and how bright and happy it looks. That is how I want all of our guests to feel when they visit. Anyone else have a guest room/nursery?
