I wanted to create a calming atmosphere with modern patterns and pops of color and yet having a grown up feel that was still appropriate for a baby and heres what I came up with. Still many more touches to be touched up.... But take a peek into Conrad's nursery.
I decided on a grey/blue putty color for the walls, burnt orange velvet curtains, browns, greens, blues, & oranges throughout. I especially love the window seat which is reminiscent of the window seat I had when I was a kid. I accessorized it with stuffed animals that were given to Conrad and a few that were hand made for me, a few that were stuffed away in my "hope" chest, and of course, my pound puppy that I had growing up that is still splattered with dirt, paint, and one backwards sewn on puppy ear. The window seat is filled with books, toys, and a basket of blankets that were also knitted by grandma's and friends for Conrad.
Here is Conrad's bedding. He doesn't look like he loves it in this picture, but trust me it's his favorite. He told me.
