Obviously as soon as I heard the news I got to work on planning the nursery. Yes, I'm that crazy friend that sends daily emails with a million nursery ideas. Much to my dismay, she isn't finding out the sex of the baby. So my job is coming up with a gender neutral nursery fit for a he OR she.
Erin has a boxer named Harley, that she already thinks is her child. She has actually said she loves him so much she feels like she birthed him (crazy dog people I'm sure can relate, yes? no?). To say that she loves him is an understatement. Anyway, I felt it was only fitting to make him a big part of her new human baby nursery and this is what I came up with
I love, love, love the Osborne & Little Best in Show wallpaper but I really wanted to use just Boxers. A little creativity later and I came up with is special Boxer wallpaper that I'm calling First Love.
The drawer pulls on the dresser/changing table aren't bows, they are bones! How adorable?
Hawaii is near and dear to Erin and her husband so I felt I needed to add a little color to the space in the form of this watercolor map- I love that it adds color while staying gender neutral.
The rest of the items are those typical nursery things: a crib, rocker, some toys and lighting for those late night feedings that are sure to be plenty.
I'm sure there will be many more rounds of the game I call "hey what do you think of this nursery idea?" But this was a solid start and one I hope I can recreate for my already loved niece or nephew!
