the nursery – mood boards

So here they are. The three mood boards I mentioned in this post and that I created for Baby G’s nursery. The mister is leaning towards the “yellow giraffe” scheme. Me? Not sure. I like them all!  We are going to re-use Luke’s crib, dresser/changing table and rocking chair (they are from Pottery Barn and are in excellent condition), so the elements I could play with to put together the room were the wall colors and accessories. I surfed the web and found modern, cute and affordable accessories I could use in stores like Pottery Barn, CB2, West Elm, Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, Ikea and Etsy. Oh! and some cute and interesting things I found in my mother-in-law’s basement. (that’ll be another post!)

I know they are very similar since they all have a bold color as the main focus, but I think each have a different vibe.

Being just two weeks away from my third trimester I think it’s about time to choose a color scheme and put us to work. And since we are so indecisive we ask you to please help us with your opinion.

      Natalie thanks for stopping by my blog. We chose the Yellow Giraffe theme. I’ll post pictures soon.
      I do all my mood boards in Microsot Publisher. I know there are a lot of sites, like Polyvore, etc, to put together boards, but I’m a little old school. I feel MP lets me do more things, like the lines or add other graphichs besides pictures. What do you use to do your boards?

    Here is what “mood” is evoked from yellow: Yellow Color Mood Chart
    Here is Orange: Orange Color Mood Chart
    Here is green: Green Color Mood Chart
    I don’t know how much of this is true. You decide 🙂
