Our little baby boy, who is arriving on May 10th, will be sharing our bedroom with us for the first few months of his life. We rearranged the furniture in our bedroom, which looked like this previously, and gave a whole wall of our room as a ‘nursery’.
We decided on the Oeuf Sparrow Crib & matching Dresser / Change Table for our little Prince, mainly because I love the grey it comes in. The hardest part of the nursery was deciding on bedding – I knew I didn’t want anything too busy, mainly because I’d have to stare at it out of my bed and I wanted it to ‘go’ in our room, so we chose all white bedding and threw in a Marimekko throw pillow to tie in with the Fatboy.
Hiding under the pillow (and the monkey and a plush Sophie!) is an Orange Dwell Blanket with foxes scampering all over it. I figured a baby needs some colour and with his chosen name, orange seemed to be a good choice…
And, of course, Mama needed a brand new bag and after some quick decision making, I chose this red Marc Jacobs bag. I love the colour, the size and the weight of this bag. I’m not sure if you can still get it in red, but every season Marc Jacobs comes out with new colours and patterns for this bag.
I’m not sure if I’ll have time to blog before the baby is born this Thursday, so follow along with me on Twitter & Facebook!
