Project: Nursery pt 1

I've been on the fence a little (okay, a lot) on how I want baby girl's nursery to look. I've explored every option from gender neutral to all-out-girl. Then my mom's neighbor just re-did her girls room with the most spectacular pink wallpaper and offered me her extras ... and the nursery "theme" was settled on.



The idea is this: the wall paper on one wall with the rest of the walls in a light/blush pink. The ceiling will stay the same grey color, so I want to make it sort of a grey and pink themed, girly but classy/elegant. Like this:

One of the things I knew I wanted was a girly chandelier. I found the perfect one, and last night Jason and I (okay fine, Jason) installed it:









And yesterday I made my best find, an upholstered rocker/glider better than the one I'd been jonesing for from Pottery Barn Kids. At a price that I could not pass up (especially with the addition of the 20 percent off coupon I had!) Thank you DownEast Home!!

How cute Jess! I'm so excited to see the results!

Totally making me want to put up the girly chandellier (spelling?) we have. We never put ours up because we didn't know how long we would be staying at our place...

I just wrote a nice long comment and accidentally exited out of the window without publishing it!

in short, love everything you are doing! we have a chandellier (spelling?) that I would love to put up, but still haven't.

Can't wait to see your beautiful nursery!
