We are finally done with the nursery, and I can’t tell you how much we love the end result!
When designing our nursery, we had three goals.
First, the room had to be gender neutral. (We were adamant about not finding out the baby’s sex.)
Second, we wanted it to be Disney themed.
If you stop here, essentially, this was an easy task. We could have gone the direction of Mickey & Friends or Disneyland themed. Anything that just threw out a variety of characters and fun colors would have done it.
Earlier this summer, I made paper palm frond decor for our guest room to go with a cute pineapple watercolor we found at a local art show. The paper palm frond concept was perfect, but I wasn’t totally in love with the color combination I had readily available in my paper supplies. Thankfully, for my baby shower, my friend brought over a paper leaf garland she had cut using her Cricut. The colors she used were perfect, and I was able to integrate her pieces into my decor.
The third trimester is upon us and we’re getting loads of projects done for Baby Lawrence’s arrival. Primarily, we’ve been focusing on putting the nursery together and finding homes for all the wonderful gifts we’ve been receiving from family and friends.
We’ve decided to go with an ocean theme – but with a Disney twist! (Naturally.) We don’t know the sex of the baby so we’re filling the room with our favorite Disney characters who also love the sea! Think: Little Mermaid, Lilo & Stich, Pirates of the Caribbean, Peter Pan, Finding Nemo / Dory, and Moana.
