what's black & white & pink & green & gold & a million different patterns & ice cream themed? mabel's room, of course!!
this has been such a fun room to decorate! it may not look like much, but i wanted to document what it looks like before mabel is born as i'm sure it will get tweaked here & there as the months go by.
so, the quick story behind the nursery is i knew i wanted the base to be black & white because we literally have nothing else in the house that color scheme! you just can't go wrong with classic black & white. =) our house has blue carpet (not my preference) so the first step was getting a giant rug to cover up most of the room. thank you, ikea, for having the perfect solution!
once we knew the gender of our baby, then i wanted to pop in some other fun colors. even after we found out we were having a girl, i wasn't completely sold on pink. it wasn't until target introduced their new pillowfort line for children's home decor & i saw the mint green & pink ice cream pictures (shown above the crib) that i knew i had to get those for mabel's room. those pictures are what i based the rest of the room's color scheme & it's been fun to slowly collect things ever since!
as i mentioned in this post, my mom & sisters decorated my shower beautifully in the theme of mabel's room so i was able to incorporate lots of their homemade decorations (like the ice cream garland!!) into her room.
|aren't newborn bracelets the sweetest?|
|had to sneak a picture of my diaper bag in because i love it. it converts to a backpack!|
well, that was probably wayyyy too many pictures, but i have no regrets. =) now we just wait patiently for baby girl to make her appearance!!
