planning a nursery: giraffes + letters + owls + fabric + stuff.

When I think about our little guy making his debut here, I get really excited for a lot of reasons. Obviously. But I’ve only recently gotten excited thinking about his room. Yay!


Decorating and nesting are so trivial when I think of the big picture, but Im all about creatively repurposing and remixing handmade, vintage, clearanced and thrifted furniture items, art and decor to give all of our kiddos awesome rooms that make them feel like the special and unique rockstars they are. (And I did work at Meredith for two years and I have the decorating bug. Full disclosure.)


So, without further ado…let the brainstorming of Joseph’s nursery commence!

Colors: yellows, browns, teals, greens, maybe a few splashes of orange. No prefab room for this kiddo!

What I’m loving right now: Giraffes, owls, woodland creatures, the alphabet, vintage books, typography, modern fabric.


What I’m not loving: Pastels. Disney characters. Safari-themed rooms. Noah’s Ark-themed rooms. Themed rooms in general.


I’m lamenting that you can’t create nursery registry on Etsy. Boo! I’ll direct you all to my Etsy favorites below. 😉



About Kayla

I'm a full-time journalist turned work-at-home writer. I'm hitched to a shaggy-haired pastor and we're smitten with two wild + crazy boys: Joseph (3), who joined our family via international adoption, and Asher (1), who came the old-fashioned way. I drink strong coffee, I like pretty things, and I believe there's beauty in the broken. I hope Many Sparrows will encourage you to find worth and live a story worth sharing. When I’m not changing diapers and sweeping Cheerios, I’m tickling the ivory keys of my old school MacBook as a freelance writer and editor. And when I’m not doing that, I’m sneaking into the living room in the wee hours of the night to blog about all of the things. (Primarily faith, family, style, adoption, design, and happy thoughts.)
