Thanks for your kind words on Monday's post! Today, I'm sharing my initial design thoughts for the area outside of our bedroom - since we don't have two bedrooms on the 2nd level - we'll probably use the loft area and our bedroom at first and use a bedroom downstairs during the day - so we'll be creating two spaces (at least that's the plan!)
1+2 | hamper | rug | sheepskin | ottoman (similar) | upholstery fabric | rocking horse
I like both listed above (in fact, most from Babyletto) - anyone have either? I've had my eye on this rug for a while - love the idea of layering a sheepskin on top to make it plusher! A few years ago I missed a similar ottoman at a consignment shop - I'd love to find a vintage one (at an affordable price!) Rocking chairs can be pretty expensive - love the idea of repurposing one of my existing chairs (mine is similar but not the same) by adding a rocking chair base and reupholstering with a fun fabric! Also, love the idea of buying a cheaper chair and adding a rocking chair base (I may want something with a higher back!) I have a rattan rocking horse from my sweet friend Cassie! I also have a handmade one from my grandfather - that one will probably go in the living room.
The image below is a mock up that I did in sketch up - it's the room right outside of our bedroom. I'm thinking we will keep the baby in our room during the first few months and use this space for late night feedings etc. This is open to the rest of the house, and with the railing / stairs, so it definitely won't work as a nursery long term!
Any advice? I'm definitely new at this!
