Project Dream Home: Nursery

Yes! It is finally time to start working on our nursery! We have had so much work to do in our new home (and still have so much), that we have been putting off the nursery until it’s absolutely necessary to start getting it ready. We still have 4 months, but I think the time has come.

From day one, my friends and family have assumed that our baby room is going to be decked out in Mickie Mouse and Disney extreme, and why wouldn’t they? We are Disney fanatics…we worked, dated, got engaged and got married at “the happiest place on Earth”. Why wouldn’t we theme our child’s room after our favorite second home?

The truth is that we just don’t like character-themed rooms. It’s always too much. Plus, once a room has a theme, especially a nursery, people go a little nuts buying for that specific theme. I do not want Mickey and Minnie EVERYTHING, so we are going for something a little more simple… a lot more simple actually.

Our nursery is going to be neutral, lots of white, simple, timeless and gender neutral furniture. Husband and I both like the clean simplistic look of the neutral nurseries I’ve found on Pinterest.

The natural lighting and simple decor is so nice in this room.

We  love the neutral rooms, BUT, we are going to sneak in a touch of classic Disney. I found lots of cute Disney touches to add on Pinterest. Not sure what we will choose (if any), but these are my favorites so far.

One Disney touch we definitely want to add is a couple vintage Disney posters. I found some amazing vintage ads from Disneyland! I think we will choose our two favorites, frame them and add them to our neutral room to liven it up a little. It’s Disney, but not too obvious or obnoxious. Right?

Here's a few...

CANNOT wait to get started on our little girl’s room!

  1. I have those vintage posters in my school library! I love the classic vintage feel of Disney as opposed to the more modern look. The neutral nurseries are great!!

    1. Really!?!?!? That’s awesome! Where did you get them???

  2. Minus the classic Disney, it’s funny we like the same nursery style:). I love your ideas. The classic Disney touches to the neutral look will be amazing! Excited to see how it turns out. No doubt it will be unique. I love you!

    1. Hey Pamela! Thanks for the comment! You know, I cannot believe I never posted the outcome! Although, to be honest, I never REALLY finished it. It’s a constant work in progress…as is my entire home. I did not find the doorknob, but you have encouraged me to look more! I am definitely going to post a blog now about the outcome of then nursery. Maybe today! Oh and thank you for the compliment. I think she’s pretty darn adorable myself. Good luck with the TTC progress. It’s a wild and beautiful journey!
