With just 3 months to go til baby boy joins us, I think it's time I start prepping. One thing I was really happy last time around was having the nursery ready to go before Aggie came home. She didn't use it on day one but we used it heavily before we were fully out of that newborn stupor so having one less thing to do was a blessing. With that in mind, I plan to have this boy's nursery done and dusted this time around too. Lucky for me, I think I can do a totally different look without too much effort.
The look I'm going for is modern safari. Just enough whimsy to make it sweet without the color overload.

To refresh, here is what it looked like for Aggie (the complete nursery)...
So we'll be keeping the wall color, the crib, the book ledges, light fixture and rug. Pretty sure the dresser will stay as well. I'm tempted to replace it with something a bit more masculine like this, I have a hard time parting with a perfectly fine functioning vintage piece of furniture. I do plan on changing the curtains, the bedding, mobile and artwork. I'm happy to finally have a reason to hang some of the photos we took on African safari a few years back! I'm so tempted to get a tiny leather club chair and cowhide rug i here but I think for practical reasons I'll stick with a glider and the bear plush (which much to my shock, is still white!).
Time to get cracking!
