Inspiration Board #1

For years I have been reading/browsing the photos of my favorite design blogs for ideas.  I have a folder on my desktop called "lookbook" (thanks Lauren!) and this is where I stash all of the photos I love and want to remember for the future.

Along with this house hunting process comes a strong erge to nest.  The fact that I am pregnant (!) could have something to do with it as well, which is why I have been looking at a lot of nursery designs.  Unfortunately I don't have any room for nesting in our apartment, but that doesn't mean my imagination isn't going wild!

Buy Modern Baby has an awesome blog run by Esther. She has created over 30 inspiration boards for baby/kids rooms.  Looking at hers inspired me to create one of my own.  Now, keep in mind I have 5 more months until the arrival of our little mouth so Im sure things will change.   I change my mind a lot.  Heck, I don't even have a room to decorate yet, but I can dream.  Ha!  I may not stay with these colors/design, but I do know that the room will not be too baby.  I want to furnish it for me and add accessories/artwork for the baby.  Makes sense, right?

This was really fun to create, I see more in my future.  Nursery inspiration board #1: 

1 -  Yellow Moroccan Pouf
2 -  Grey wool rug
3 -  Joya Rocker (also like the white leather option)
4 - Armoire (a Craigslist score that will soon be painted)
5 - Map wall decal from Etsy
6 - yellow/white chevron fabric for curtains
7 - Tripod floor lamp
8 - Olivia Crib
9 - bird mobile (made by my mom/me-pattern here)
10 - yellow painted dresser/changing table (future find on Craigslist!)

Some other ideas that I have seen elsewhere and would like to incorporate into the nursery are this awesome wall o' books.  The room was designed by Elizabeth Sullivan Design. I love the striped ceiling too!
This picture is from Refresh Design Studio. The alphabet was decorated at a baby shower.  I love this idea (hint, hint)!  With all the crafty people in my family, these would turn out great! 
This little paper pom-pom/lantern "chandelier" is really cool too.  It is from Live the Fancy Life.  The grey wall color is right up my alley as well.

Well, this is just my first attempt at throwing together some inspiration I have been pouring over.  Ahhhh...So fun and exciting to decorate...even if it is just virtual [for now].
