Now I’m going to stop you before your mind wanders any farther — no, this is not a story about me being pregnant…your mind should be several YEARS away from wandering there.
Anyways, when I learned that Target knew you were pregnant before anyone, I thought it was hilarious, so naturally I told Noel all about this directed marketing strategy. Well, I was doing some work for a client that involved a room for a little kid, so for about a week, I was shopping around the nursery furniture/decor section of Target online. Wouldn’t you know it, about a week later, we started getting bombarded with baby advertisements from Target, which resulted in a pale-faced “uh, Kirsten, is there something I need to know?” look from Noel. It was quite funny.
So, what is spurring all of this baby talk? It just so happens Noel’s aunt & uncle are expecting a little boy this August, and their shower is this weekend, so I was spending a little quality time online with Target’s nursery decor this week (which is super adorable, by the way). There’s also the fact that because I never know what design projects may come my way, I like to stay up on all the nursery trends. So if you see me pinning away baby rooms, there’s no need to jump to any conclusions.
Last year, I did a post on non-traditional nurseries, and since I haven’t posted much in the baby inspiration realm as of lately, I thought it was time for another glimpse into some of my favorite baby spaces.
This adorable nursery was designed by Sissy + Marley Interiors. I love the fact that it’s girly, without being too over the top.
If bold is more your style, try adding a large pattern, such as a stripe to the wall. If you do go bold, make sure you use a simple color scheme so the room can still feel cohesive. (I’m not sure of the original source of this image, but I found it here).
This last nursery, which is featured on The Handmade Home is my absolute favorite because it’s so unique. They took a risk by putting the pattern on the ceiling, and in this instance, it definitely worked, as it created a whimsical vibe. I like it so much, I had to share two views of it.
