My Son's Baby Nursery {Fresh Color Scheme and Theme}

Fresh and Fun Colors for a Baby Nursery!

You know what is kind of sad for me sometimes? Remembering so many projects and fun things around my house that I never blogged about! All the pre-blogging years! Bedrooms, bathrooms, living rooms, dining rooms and kitchen in several houses and gardens and flagstone paths in our yard and all sorts of projects we did over the years that I didn’t really get to show you.

And that is what I think is so awesome now, as bloggers we can open up our homes and lives and it is almost like you are our real life neighbors. I love that we can chat about things we are doing and things we love and keep connected every week as we go through life. That is pretty cool.

So speaking of past projects, I recently got the opportunity to write about one that is near and dear to my heart! Even though I don’t have all the awesome blogger reveal pictures of the room or the step by step things we did, I am excited to talk about my son Luke’s nursery over on My Colortopia today. He is almost 12 now, and we’ve long since moved from that house, but we had so much fun creating a special nursery for him! He was a very much wanted little boy, and what a cute he was and still is!

I’m glad I have the opportunity to give you a little blast from the past! I might have to just pull out my grainy blurry non-blogger photos of projects and show ’em to you more often, cause it is kind of fun to go back in time and remember pre-blogging projects!

Even though I didn’t get all the right photos or lighting or style all my pictures or have any of the right photography equipment, I loved creating rooms in our home just as much back in the day as I do now!

So, come on over and check out the theme for my son’s nursery and a see picture of my cutie patootie boy over at My Colortopia! You can leave comments there and ask questions about your own baby nursery too!

PS. I’ve got some AWESOME NEW STUFF going on at The Inspired Room that I’m going to reveal in the upcoming days! I am so excited. I adore blogging and how things can grow and evolve to be better every year! I’ve been hard at work behind the scenes to get reorganized to be able to share more of what I love with you all! So more on that soon!

    melissa – I thought you were making an announcement when I saw the posting title. I love the colours that you show here – very bright and cheery for a little one.

      Ha! That would be fun, but no more for us :-).

  2. Mimi

    Re-doing my daughters room was always fun! She’s 17 now so I have very little say about what she does now, but I must admit she has pretty good taste. We used to re-decorate her room every six months. I was smart enough to stay in the color range of the banana yellow or the palest of blues paint so no matter what color combo she chose it all worked. My favorite was the hot pink and orange or perhaps the turquoise and black and white. We simply recovered the pillows, made a new duvet with Stitch Witchery and painted a few items. What fun! Looking forward to hearing and seeing the news about your blog. Have an incredible weekend!

    Great colors-Have you seen The odd girl blog and stuff she creates stamps-she has some neat boy stuff you may enjoy or get an idea for mural or who knows

    I know what you mean…all of the projects completed before blogging. Even now I sometimes forget to take pictures.
    Hope you’re having a great weekend.

    Hmmm…pre-blogger, baby nurseries.
    I often think of my baby nurseries. One in particular. I wonder if I could capture the essence of those rooms now. The imprint they left on my mind was something beautiful, but only now…dreamy and light years away.

    …thank you for stirring my memories today!
