When we bought this home in the summer, we had plans to turn this room into an office, but we’re so much happier to transform it into a nursery in the coming months. We have a direction for this room, but not a complete mood board put together yet. I think that will be one of the first posts of the new year. So far, we have painted the crib and this weekend we painted the room taking it from blue:
To a peaceful white:
The nursery is on the main floor (right across from our bedroom) and so while we thought about color schemes and accents on this level, the nursery was right in the middle of the plan. We have a dark navy
, sophisticated green
, and a light gray-ish taupe
already on this level. We’re leaning toward a charcoal grasscloth wallpaper for our bedroom right now (mmm) and the nursery seemed like the perfect place for a highlight. Ace Hardware’s
“White Mosaic” is a beautiful, perfect white I’m so glad I stumbled upon.
Whites are kind of hard, you know. There are so many and so many undertones. White Mosaic looked the purest. No gray undertones, no yellows, or blues. Just a beautiful calm white. Being a part of the Ace Blogger panel
, we used the opportunity to use their Clark + Kensington’s paint and primer in one (in eggshell) again–the same brand that we used for our great room
and stand by it being a good budget brand, starting at just $25/gallon.
As you can see, we bought an unfinished wood dresser from Ikea too (the Tarva). Our friends actually bought it and it didn’t fit in their space so we bought it off of them and are excited to put some sort of finish to it as the rest of the room comes together. The next project in here is actually removing the carpet and laying new floors and painting all the trim and the doors the same white in a glossier sheen–but that’s another post for another day. ;)
