Nest: And the Winning Mood Board Is …

18 Oct

We posted three sets of potential mood boards for our baby boy’s nursery in September, and the response from all our readers both here on the blog and on the other forums we shared them on has been phenomenal. Thank you so much to everyone who took time to weigh in on our design selections.

After getting feedback on our initial selections, we were able to short-list our options to three choices: Orange and Blue, Modern Meadow and Exotic Elephants. We kicked the tires on the furniture we were considering at Ikea, made some updates to all three boards, and finally, it was decision time. Ultimately, we still liked all three themes, but in the end, one of them just felt right. So the winner is …

Modern Meadow

The relaxing, tranquil mood of this theme is what won us over. While we loved the energy and playfulness of the Orange and Blue theme, we decided we wanted the nursery to be a peaceful sanctuary.

We made a few adjustments from the original board, substituting a sturdier dresser for the inexpensive one I originally chose and substituting a “terracotta” rocker for the original red, which was back-ordered into next year.

Now that the design work is done, it’s time to bring everything together. In the coming weeks, we’ll finish clearing our old furniture out of the room, painting the room and buying and assembling all the elements of the room. Stay tuned for updates as we prepare for our little one’s December arrival.
