Another Nursery Sneak Peek!

I'm excited to share bits and pieces of the new nursery!  As I mentioned before, in stark contrast to my other children's nurseries, I'm doing this one in soothing neutrals.  I painted the walls in Ben Moore's Revere Pewter (my current go-to paint color) before we had any idea about baby #3, and I love it too much to change it.  Even though I am using mostly whites and neutrals in the nursery's decor, I wanted to add some art to serve as a focal point on the main wall.

I found Pamela Munger's art on etsy and fell in love!  Her works are so beautiful.  Let's be honest- we all *think* we can do our own abstract pieces, but the final result never comes remotely close to the work of a professional artist like Pamela.  She knows how to pick color combinations that work well together, and her pieces are quite affordable.  

The box arrived on Saturday! (Yes, you are seeing a twin bed in the nursery.  Since the nursery is going to be downstairs, I think a bed in the nursery is a necessity at least during those first few weeks).

I excitedly opened it up!

I loved seeing the design peeking through the bubble wrap!

Isn't it beautiful?  The colors and brushstrokes are just perfect.  Abstract but not obnoxious.

I love how it stands out on the Revere Pewter wall.  The sides are painted white, so I am not going to frame it right now.  Maybe one day, but the sides don't bother me right now, so I'll save my pennies.

I'll share more of the nursery as it comes together.  Hanging art makes such a difference!

So good! I do love how the color jumps off the neutral wall!

Yeah! I can't wait to see the nursery all finished! Thank you, Sarah. What an honor to have my art hanging in your precious little ones room. I think I must have painted this one just for her.

Saw her art in an apartment in either House Beautiful or Veranda a while ago - colors are scrumptious.

The two things I always say are indispensable for new moms: a bed in the nursery and a good changing table. Aside from a sense of humor, of course.
