When Kevin and I found out we were adding a little man to our family, there was no doubt in our minds what direction we wanted to go when it came to designing and decorating our little man's nursery. Knowing I love all things vintage and Kevin was and still is an avid baseball/softball player, we knew we wanted our little guy's nursery to be a vintage baseball themed space.
When I first started working on an inspiration board, I had all intentions of creating a neutral room with pops of red. I was envisioning a space with burlap, linen, and touches of crimson ticking fabrics. I was thinking of using old Coca-Cola crates, cracker jack boxes, and a pair of red converse sneakers to tie in that vintage feel. So when I stumbled across the most adorable bedding on Etsy, I knew I could make my vision come to life. And so I did when I created this little inspiration board.
After showing Kevin my inspiration for Boston's nursery, he agreed that he loved it and told me to start making some purchases...starting with the bedding. Which is when we got some very bad news. The bedding that I had fallen in love with and used as the basis for my entire inspiration board was currently no longer in stock on ETSY and sadly, the seller would not be able to make another set like it. Can you say major bummer?!
After scouring the internet for hours on end, I just couldn't find any tan and red bedding that I liked enough to work with my vision so I decided to start over from scratch and come up with a new plan. After relooking through hundreds of bedding options, I stumbled across Restoration Hardware's bedding and fell in love with this gray and navy striped ticking bedding. The ticking stripes definitely gave a vintage vibe and I thought, hey, let's see if I can make this work. So after an hour at my computer, I finally created another inspiration board I loved just as much as the first. And you know what? Kevin loved it even more! So without further ado, here's our plans for Boston's nursery. Fingers crossed the bedding doesn't sell out before I can get my hands on it... I don't know what I'll do if that happens!
What do you ladies think?! Is it fit for a future baseball player?!
