Baby Prep: Nursery Mood Board
My first thought for a color scheme was all whites and creams and greys. A few pops of color would come out here and there, but that would be about it.
And then I found a beautiful glider on Craigslist. It was in perfect condition, and the fabric was just pretty enough that I didn't want to recover it. The only problem? That fabric was a light purple color with darker purple flower blossoms splashed over it in a few places---like a watercolor painting. Very cool, but very not cream or grey.
So then I made a choice. I decided to scrap my idea for a completely neutral and blank nursery and go with the color that I'd just purchased. And then I looked up pictures of lavender fields on Pinterest. And then the rest is history. With purples and lavenders, navy blues and muted greens, and a generous helping of those neutral creams and natural woods, I present my nursery mood board.
