Here is the beginning stages of our little girls nursery. To start we have super high ceilings in our home which allows for this awesome shelf that goes around 3 walls of the room. When my father-in-law was here in January he painted the wall chocolate brown (it was red). I thought the brown would give a nice contrast to all of the little trinkets and things we plan to put up there and display.
The big dresser in the room is a hand-me-down from me! As a grad student I entered and won the Family Circle College Cook-off and got a bit of prize money that I used to furnish my brand new house in Indiana. One of the things I bought was this awesomely huge dresser but with a built-in dresser in my closet I just didn't need it so now our little one gets to use it, I just need some drawer organizers because those drawers are huge and I'll never find anything in there without a little organization.
Shown below is the art inspiration for the room, I found these before I was even pregnant. I always knew that I wanted a duck themed room but I didn't want it to be too kitschy or over done, I think these are just right!
