pinterest wednesdays & nurseries

[orange inspiration found on Pinterest]

Well I have been doing a lot of thinking about the spud nursery. I finally have enough energy in this second trimester to even contemplate tackling a project. I thought about my inspirations to have a yellow and gray nursery here... remember? Adorable. Well, on closer inspection it's not really yellow, it's more of an orange. Like pumpkin on two of the walls and pumpkin latte on the other. Wishful thinking on the yellow room. It's orange. So, on Pinterest Wednesday I am now looking for orange inspiration. Why is that such an uncommon color? I think it's cheery and gender neutral. And it happens to already be the color of the room....easy!

I think it will be the same look in the room as someone who paints theirs bright turquoise or yellow- it's bold. And I will have the duty to mellow it, make it peaceful, and serene. Am I able to do it?! We shall see.

Did I also mention it's a room that is teeny-tiny?! Like 7' x 7' tiny, with a little closet/nook. Back here is when I talked about the size and how it's my office currently. Yup, small. But babies are small right? Oh, it will be so helpful to know if we are expecting a little boy or girl. Then the few accent colors and artwork pieces can be chosen accordingly. So much fun!
