Baby Zottola’s Nursery So Far

I am finally sharing about the progress we’ve made on baby girl’s nursery! It has been a lot of fun to dream up what her room will look like and imagine snuggling and caring for her in there. We feel so blessed to have her in our lives already and can’t wait to meet her 🙂

Here’s an little inspiration collage I put together.

Basically, we want her room to feel cozy and happy. We painted the walls a very light gray, the ceiling is coral, and we might be painting the doors an aqua color.

To get the warm feeling in the room, we’re hoping to have a lot of wood in the furniture, flooring, and decor, and will likely add in some greenery via succulents or plants.

So, here’s what the room looked like before. It was previously our home office. Before we were expecting, I had wanted to paint the room a peachy coral color but never got around to it. When we found out we were having a girl, we decided to stick with the peachy-coral color scheme.

We cleared almost everything out of the room and removed the baseboards, then Jimmy got to work painting. We started out with painting the ceiling the peach color you see in the one photo above, but thought it was too bubblegum pink-ish, so we ended up repainting it a darker, more coral shade that Jimmy picked out.

Jimmy also installed new flooring! We have hardwood floors in our home, but they’re pretty beat and we didn’t feel like resurfacing and staining them (been there, done that), so we bought interlocking vinyl flooring to put on top of the hardwood.

Here’s what the room looks like now!

So, that’s where we’re at with baby girl’s nursery. Next we need to install new baseboards, paint the doors, pick out a light fixture, and purchase blinds or curtains for the windows. After that we can set up her crib and any other furniture and begin adding in decor and such!

Bedroom Overhaul Wish List

As I mentioned earlier this month, I’ve been wanting to decorate and furnish our master bedroom. Right now, it’s super bare. Like a bed, one nightstand, and one makeshift nightstand bare. Eek!

I am ready to make it our own since we’ve been living in our home for almost three years! Jimmy and I both agreed that we want our bedroom to be a calming space. With that in mind, here’s my wish list.

Headboard // Comforter // Sheets // Bench
bedroom-collage-2
Throw // Painting // Candle // Pillow
bedroom-collage-3
Basket // Nightstand // Mirror // Paintings

Making this wish list was so much fun. It was like going on a shopping spree without actually spending any money 😉

If you could decorate/renovate/furnish any room where you live, which would it be and what would you do?
