It wasn't easy to put together a nursery I love while living overseas, but we definitely accomplished it!
Even though having furniture shipped out here is basically impossible, I was able to order everything else online. Let's be honest, it's all about the details anyways, isn't it?
Jacob's nursery doubles as our office, but with only one piece of office furniture (a desk), the majority of this shared space belongs to Jacob.
I love navy blue, and always knew that would be one of the main colors in the nursery.
I always thought of Jacob as a little man, and I kept that in mind while decorating his room.
Madras really fit our style, and I love the variety of colors it brings to the room.
The dresser/changing table is one of my favorite parts of the nursery (you can read about how we made it here).
I ordered the airplane prints from an Etsy shop and absolutely love them. The Jacob letters were a gift from one of my girlfriends and I love the way my husband arranged them in with the prints.
This shelf was originally part of our office furniture, but it works great for the nursery. I used fabric bins to store blankets, burp clothes and other essentials.
Putting together a nursery for my little guy was one of my favorite parts of my pregnancy.
We won't be here in our Italian home much longer, but this will always be Jacob's first bedroom.
I think this theme will also transition well as he gets older, so we will be able to reuse a lot of these pieces as he grows.
If you've put together a nursery for a little one before, how did you decide on the theme?
