i am a thirty year old woman who works 80 hour weeks in a school in harlem. three lovely ladies at my work are now pregnant and planning nurseries. while mike and i certainly couldn't fit a nursery into our teensy weensy apartment, these three pregnancies have gotten me thinking... could we ever fit a nursery into our lives?
planning for a nursery is a lot easier than planning for a child. while i'm not a mother, i work in a middle school. so, i certainly know how hard being a parent is!

if i were to have a nursery, it would look like these images:

or, you could use grown up rooms to inspire a nursery
how cute would a light turquoise wall, bright red crib, graphic black and white rug, and crisp linens look in a nursery? with a little bit of cool animal art, it would be a lot of fun.
this would be a great bohemian nursery. i love the carpet. if all the tables and bedding were white (with a very clean baby), you could get some great eclectic pillow-y things. then a great big perfect hugo guinness drawing!
i think this would be my favorite. normally i don't go for pink, and while this might over do it, i love it. another great graphic rug. red furniture (even though some folks say that might make an angry baby...) and a very cool yellow graphic poster. beautiful billow-y matching curtains.
another boho baby. this baby room is probably easier to clean, but tan bedding might be a little, tan. does anyone know of great nursery bedding in a light brown color that you could razzle-dazzle with some great colorful pillows and art?
