I'm Gonna Make This Place Your Home

Posted by Laura

Caleb and I recently heard this song on the radio and have loved it since. These words have become the words we've been singing to my belly, and they perfectly describe our hearts as we develop our love for our little babe.

Home - Phillip Phillips
Hold on, to me as we go
As we roll down this unfamiliar road
And although this wave is stringing us along
Just know you’re not alone
Cause I’m going to make this place your home

Along the lines of making this place a home for the babe, we've been thinking through the decor of our spare bedroom/soon-to-be nursery. Decorating a nursery isn't about picking out colors, it's about creating a theme for one's childhood. Caleb and I want to give our babe a green light to be adventurous and explore...and what better way to do that than to start with the sea? This is where the nautical theme comes in. With that in mind, I've been pinning a little here and there, and keeping my eye out for things in our color scheme - woods, whites (linens, muslin cottons, etc), and sea green. Here's a little color palette I put together. 

And Pinterest....ahhhh Pinterest. The place to completely visualize things you want. Here's my pinterest board I've been working on for the nursery.

We're going to have to rearrange and purge the apartment as we start setting up our new life. Many more posts to come...
