When I found out we were having a boy I was so excited for lots of reasons. And I have to admit that one of those reasons was because I already had an idea forming about what kind of nursery I wanted to put together. Maybe that’s kind of silly! But, I had envisioned this room and it was just perfect for a boy. So, I was naturally pretty excited that I could execute that vision and it would be perfect!
However. I recently saw the most dreamy, beautiful nursery ever! I don’t know, something about this space just really speaks to me. Seeing this room has completely changed the route I was going to go with our baby boy’s room. Does that ever happen to you? It happens to me all the time! I search for inspiration and have a vision that I think I’m completely happy with and then bam! I wake up to a picture on Pinterest or Instagram one day and it changes everything.
Of course it’s not exactly what I want and I doubt the final space will really end up looking much like that one. But the vibe of it. The organic freshness. The minimalism and deep colors. They’re just what I really want for this new space I’m planning!
But they are SO different from the original space I had in my head. And you know what? I am totally good with that! This new room will, I think, be even more appropriate for a boy’s space than my original plan. It will also match the rest of our home better I think. And, my husband did a weird face when I told him my original idea so I think it’s safe to say he’ll like this better too (though I don’t really care what he thinks of my interior design haha).
The first idea I had was still going to be pretty minimal. But I was going to incorporate more colors in it, lots of colors actually! Like, all the colors of the rainbow. And speaking of the rainbow, my favorite lullaby to sing with Stella is “Over the Rainbow”. It’s so sweet and mellow and about such happy things. And it comes from one of the best movies ever. I just love The Wizard of Oz. And the line “where troubles melt like lemon drops” has always seemed so peaceful to me.
Since I sing the song to Stella, I thought about making a print with that line on it to hang in her room. Possibly to replace the print with the other song I sing to her on it. But I wanted to add a lemon drop graphic and yellow just didn’t suit her room. Immediately I knew I wanted to try and make it for baby boy’s room then, because it would match the vision I was having for it. But, now since I’m reconsidering that direction I decided to make the print anyway. I changed my vision for it quite a bit through the process but I love the print I ended up with!
It’s bright and happy and really quite perfect for any space. Nurseries, bedrooms, offices, entryways. A really welcoming print that can remind visitors they’re in a relaxing, happy place. I love the cheery vibe both this print and the phrase put off. Now that I’m not planning on incorporating it into our new nursery (although my vision could totally change again, you never know!) I definitely want to find another place for it in my home. The 8″ x 10″ print is available for free by hitting the download button below. Enjoy!
