Top Three

One thing I absolutely LOVE about the blog world is connecting with all of you.  I try to come up with topics that I think you guys will want to discuss and babies, baby names, and nurseries seemed to be a hot topic.  When I first started the baby talk I made sure you guys knew...

hahaha!!  Still TRUE!!  I had someone e-mail me to ask, so I want to make sure everyone knows. :)

We've discussed Baby Girl Names, Baby Boy Names, Girl Nurseries, and Boy Nurseries.  Today we're talking gender neutral nurseries.  I feel like that is the popular thing to do right now in nurseries, so I searched and searched to find my favorites.

First, I thought I'd share Bowen's nursery with you.  When we moved into our house (current house that we're moving out of-sorry, that's confusing), Bowen had his own room downstairs.  It was kind of a bedroom/office, but we turned it into Bowen's space.  It worked perfectly. 

I shared some more details from Bowen's room here.  Marla found the cutest inspiration pictures and we mimicked it on a budget.  :)

 This could easily have white furniture, some cute polka dots on the wall, a couple girly things and be perfect for a little girl.

 I captured a few crazy boys in the bottom left.

I absolutely loved his room.  We used mostly furniture we already had.  Just bought a few new accessories and made it the perfect little space for him.

In my search for my favorite neutral nurseries, I pretty much got stuck at Restoration Hardware and couldn't move.  Here are my top three (eh-maybe five)...

#1  Love, love, love the light neutral colors with the dark furniture!

#2  Apparently I have a thing for animal heads on a nursery wall.  This is cute!!

#3  I've seen alphabet walls before, but this is a favorite.  Love the variety of things used for letters and it could definitely be in a gender neutral nursery or a playroom.  And...I felt like I needed at least one nursery in the mix that had color!

#4  This crib.  I am in love with this crib!!!

#5  This nursery is gorgeous!!

What do you think??  Do you have a favorite?

Happy Tuesday, Girls!!  XOXO

We are currently working on a gender neutral nursery for our third little one! After decorating a nursery for a boy and a girl, I'm finding that gender neutral really is a lot of fun!!

Carter's nursery was neutral, and I did find it very calming. But B's nursery is so cute! I guess when we have our next baby, I might go for bright and cheery! Ha.......you know I'm just kidding. :)

I love the first and second pictures! I'm all about shades of white but I liked the darker wood in picture #1. I will have to bookmark these for whenever I get pregnant!

Erika! I have an 11 month old daughter and expecting a boy in September, sound familiar? Hahaha! Was hoping you and/or Shay could post about your experience and offer some tips on two back to back littles. I currently work but will stay home in September. I work in McKinney and live in Prosper. Any and all advice welcome! I'm freaking out and hoping to survive the next year... Ha!

Jana said...

I would love to show you Rylen's alphabet wall. If you like the one you posted, you'll LOVE hers - am I too confident? Haha! I'm not sure how to show you other than possibly e-mailing. Anyways, I enjoyed this post.

Erika Slaughter said...

I'd love to see it!! You could tag me on IG or email??

Erika Slaughter said...

Thank you!!

Erika Slaughter said...

I always thought so too but after this post I'm certain I'd make one neutral. But-no more babies for me!

Erika Slaughter said...

Thank you!!

Erika Slaughter said...

Thanks girl!!

Erika Slaughter said...

I agree!!! I'm checking yours out now!

Erika Slaughter said...

Waahhh!!! I got really excited for a second!

Erika Slaughter said...

Hahaha!! We can wish together. :)

Erika Slaughter said...

You know that was already painted grey before we moved in. I remember having someone ask when I first posted and I tried to find the color in the garage but was unsuccessful. Sorry!

Erika Slaughter said...

Yes!! I completely agree!

Erika Slaughter said...

Maybe we can do a post about this!! Thanks for the idea. You'll be a great mama to two littles!

Erika Slaughter said...

Yes!!! They have the cutest stuff!!

These are so cute! I'm obsessed with all things Restoration Hardware! We had our baby girl, Hadley, in February, but we didn't find out what we were having so we went with a gender neutral nursery we found at:

Even though we had a girl, I still love the Wild Things Theme!
