Baby Nursery Buzz From Schue Love!

Hi Friends!  I'm Natasha from Schue Love and I'm so excited to be back!  This time, I'm talking about my latest obsession...the baby nursery!
Owl Nursery
{Click on board for more details!}

That's right!  My husband and I are expecting our first little one in June!  So it's fair to say, I've got baby on the brain!

We find out the gender very soon which will definitely help develop the ideas I have for the nursery.  Luckily, I'm quite drawn to gender neutral decor.  I love all white furniture, but it can look cold.  I challenged myself to embrace this warm wood crib.  It's very traditional, but I think with the right accessories, it can work!

To balance out the classic crib, I brought in this ultra modern side board from West Elm.  I love that it still has the dark wood at the base, but the white balances it out.  I'm a big fan of using more functional furniture for a changing table.  It will grow with your family and is much more versatile.

The yellow chair brings in a much needed pop of color.  The chevron rug offers some interest with pattern...along with the fun pillows and print.  To make this nursery a bit more sophisticated, I used a "grown-up" lamp and the fun antler sculpture.  The owl is a fun, whimsical detail too!  :)

I have to say, I'm very excited to find out the gender...this inspiration board would look great with a cute pink/coral color too!

Thanks to Shelli for having me today!

  8. I love the modern feel of the nursery... not too "baby" themed.
    That was my goal when designing my sons nursery as well!
