I feel like I’m a minimalist, but once we started figuring out what we needed for the nursery, I was overwhelmed by how much STUFF babies require! Our little nursery is about 10 by 10 feet, so I knew that would keep temper some of the goodies and gadgets.
Plus, keeping it super gender neutral was important since we won’t know the babe’s sex until he or she gets here later this month. That’s helped me not go crazy with buying too many clothes or getting any bright colors, which actually worked out well because neutrals are more our style anyway!
Most importantly, I wanted it to feel like a calming, comforting space to just relax and learn and play and feel cozy in. I still don’t feel like it’s “done” but it’s as ready as we need it to be for the little one to arrive. It’s been so fun to carefully pick things to fill this room with sweet, simple items.
