We are keeping the sex of “Baby Auggie” (due in August) a surprise which makes designing the nursery just a bit more challenging.
First up – paint.
After a long and painstaking process, trying to find just the right color – not too boy, not too girl, not to “Easter”, not too grown up – we finally found a winner! “Palladian Blue” by Benjamin Moore. We went with the zero-VOC Eco Spec formula, safe for both Mommy and Baby. (FYI, the Eco Spec formula turned out a good bit lighter than the chip or brush outs we did beforehand.)
Thus begins the transformation of our never-finished guest room into a modern and serene nursery for our little one. Here is a photo of the finished paint job with some decor Photoshopped in for the full effect:
