Nursery Design Part II

I am starting to lay out the art pieces above the changing area.  My mom gave me some beautiful water colors she'd painted and I received a wonderful Where The Wild Things Are painting from a friend.  I was thinking of incorporating the maternity series my friend Krista of Love Song Photo has been doing with me.  I'm waiting for one more bump photo and perhaps one with the baby in place of the bump.  There is sort of a balance problem, so my other thought to balance the vignette is to add a small shelf with the little guy's initials.  Sorry guys - you only get to see his last initial for now.

Any other fabulous ideas?  I am open to feedback!

Baby On Board!

In the last year since my previous post, quite a bit has changed.  We're expecting a little one, arriving in just about a month from now.  I will start using this blog a lot more as a forum to share pictures with my  friends and family in an effort to keep my Facebook page from becoming all about my baby.

As we're putting together the nursery, I have been developing a 3D model so I can look at different options in the space.  I've decided to share a couple of the renderings here with you.

The alphabet painting in the first photo was a gift from my mom, which she painted herself and surprised me at my baby shower this past weekend.  How amazing!!
I am toying with the idea of a wall decal of a nautical compass.  Maybe, maybe not.  The next item we need is a low bookshelf  to store all the baby's toys and books.  Stay tuned for more images as I put together the art wall above the changing table!

Here's a close-up of the painting:
