Monkey Business

As Nate would tell you, I'm a planner. I know I still have 4 months until the baby is here, but we have already started- and almost completed- the nursery. In fact my mom flies out next Thursday to help with the finishing touches! I can't wait!

Nate and I already purchased the big ticket items and just need to throw everything together. I love looking at baby nurseries and really love a modern look that still says baby. I decided I needed some help, so I called on fellow blogger, Bryn, to help me out. Her house is gorgeous and very relaxing. She seemed the perfect one to give me some ideas for a great baby room!

Here is the idea board she came up with! We already own the crib, dresser, bedding and glider and I just purchased the little side table- it is so perfect!

Here is a picture Bryn found for the paint inspiration (from Martha Stewart). I love the two colors and the simplicity of the lines. What do you all think? Should we play it safe with blue or be bold with orange?

Thanks Bryn!

I TOTALLY vote orange and gray!! ;) if you hate it and decide to go blue, you can always repaint.
