Ayyyy! Today I am so thrilled to be sharing my nursery inspiration board for little baby boy Rasmussen! I've been collecting and gathering ideas on my Pinterest board since I found out I was pregnant, and I finally have a vision of how I want the nursery to look. I mentioned Friday that I didn't have a specific theme, and that is obvious when I look at this board. Confession: I really hate 99% of those crib bedding sets I see at Target, Babies R Us, etc. I dislike the cartoony, themed, cheesy, matchy matchy sets that have little bears with guitars or circus animals on all pieces.
I started with some major colors I wanted, and then started scouting for decor that represented who Ronnie and I are as a family of two, and what we hope to teach and instill in our son. I've decided to go with a navy and grey color scheme, and will add additional pops of color as I find things I like. Up until we found out the gender, I was certain I wanted to have white furniture, but then when we found out it was a boy, for some reason the dark wood was just calling my name, so thats what we went with and I am really excited. I do love white furniture, but I am pleased with how the wood colors will work with what I've already picked out.

Ronnie is a guitar player and we both love music, so I am sure some musical decor will make its way in the room, like this ukelele. We both love to travel and explore both new places, but also our own city and the mountains that surround us, so I was drawn to these Etsy prints. I've already purchased the Target Threshold rug, and have added this and another custom Bobby cover to my registry on Baby List because again, I couldn't find a cover I loved until I ventured to Etsy.
The nursery is officially all cleaned out and ready for paint which is happening this week, and hopefully next weekend I can talk Ronnie in to starting to build the furniture so I can actually start putting together all the pieces of the nursery. I can't wait to watch it come together!
