nursery madness

We are finally getting around to getting this house ready for our little man’s arrival. We only have 4 short months left! This weekend we painted Landon’s room a nice neutral beige color (we rent, so I didn’t want to go too crazy with paint color, so that we can paint over it when we move out). Hopefully this week we will order the crib and dresser so we can start on the bedding.

I don’t really care for theme nurseries- there’s nothing that I just LOVE enough to put it in my son’s room. The abundance of boats and trucks and frogs and monkeys just overwhelms me and so I decided to do a non-theme room for the little guy.

That was until I stumbled upon Rosenberry Rooms online.

For those of you who know John and I, we LOVE sports. We were heavily involved in college athletics while at East Carolina, beyond just attending events. Now, we are season ticket holders for football and try to make the trip down for several baseball games each year.

So I started contemplating a sports theme room. Not an East Carolina theme, as much as I love my pirates I don’t need purple, gold and pirates everywhere!

This is the source of my inspiration….

I LOVE this painting. I love the vintage scoreboard look, and love that it is sports without being baseballs and footballs galore.

So maybe we have  “theme” after all??

  1. I can't wait to see where you take this inspiration. We were so not into to nursery sets either, until I found one that was woodland creatures because Matt and I are avid hikers. I just bought a couple of the accessories (curtains, wall decor, a laundty basket) because really you don't usualy use most of what comes in a bedding set anyhow. And in our case A didn't even move into his room until a year! LOL! That was so not in my plan, but it was what worked for our family. ;)
