Nursery Inspiration

I've been dreaming of a little girl's nursery for as long as I can remember. I remember being pregnant with both boys & brainstorming what I would do for a girl's room. Obviously I didn't need to plan much further than the halfway point since we have 2 little boys! Once we found out that Cheney was a girl, I started scouring the internet for nursery ideas. It's funny how much your taste changes over the years. If G had been a girl, I had picked out Javis Davis custom bedding that was bright pink and light green. Now? I want something soft & serene. I've done the bright & bold nursery. Now I want something completely different.

I thought having a girl would be so easy but I actually had a really hard time finding bedding that I loved.  I searched high and low on Etsy for some custom bedding, but the only set I loved was way too pricey. I just couldn't justify it since I know we won't be using it for another baby in the future.

We know what color we will be painting C's nursery:
Valspar's Woodlawn Colonial Gray
 
Cam we talk about how difficult it is finding the perfect shade of gray? Holy moly. There are about a gazillion choices and they all look so different once you get them on the wall. We've settled on this shade because it isn't too dark; now if only it would paint itself!
 
Here's what we have so far for her bedding/window:

Triple Ruffle Crib Skirt from Target
Serena & Lily Crib Bumper
 
That's all we actually have right now but I have lots of ideas of ways to add some color to C's walls. Here are some other nurseries I am gathering ideas from..

I am still in shock that I am even getting to plan a little girl's nursery this time around! I can't wait to get started. Now, to get Griffin out of C's crib. That will be the first step!

Cute! I'm the opposite...I did a soft/serene nursery for Hayden so this time around I'll be doing bold colors whether it's a boy or girl :)

I love that ruffle crib skirt...so cute!

Love what you've picked so far! That paint color is what we used for Hudson's nursery! It's the perfect shade!
