Baby Nursery – One Room Challenge Pt. 2

One Room Challenge – Week 02

For Week 2 of the One Room Challenge I thought I would share my early ideas of what we want to do with the Nursery! In last weeks post I shared some images of nurseries I found inspiring – you can see that post here! Our first step was deciding the color – after a few samples, we decided to go with Sherwin-Williams Quitetude for a color for the room. one room challenge


We found this color to be the most calming and neutral for the space. I read a few articles about how the room color can impact the baby’s mood so we didn’t want anything to bold and bright. With it being on the neutral side I figured it gave us a lot of options for bringing in other colors to accent the space. As far as accent colors we want to go with Navy and Oranges.

Here is my list of Nursery Room Essentials:

  • Crib
  • Changing Table
  • Chair
  • Lighting
  • Rug
  • Bookshelf/Storage

From this list here are my favorite items I have found so far!

The main focus of a nursery is the crib – this is one of my favorites that I found online. I love the simplicity of it and design of the white spindles give it a little more character. You can find this crib on Amazon.

The next piece of furniture that will probably get the most use is the changing table! I love the simple design of this one from Pottery Barn Kids.

I love this chair that you can find from Babies R Us – the best part is that it doesn’t look like a nursery chair and can be used in the future somewhere else in the house.

We have a ceiling fan with a light already installed in the center of the Nursery, so lighting is covered for the most part. My husband is a huge outdoors person so I thought it would be fun to incorporate a little nature into the room – I love this Campsite NightLight from Land of Nod !

For the rug I want something a simple pattern, this rug from Pottery Barn Kids is great and I love the pop of orange! Also I’m sure it can hide a lot of stains which I foresee in our future.

As far as a bookshelf – we want something that can be functional for both books and storage. We figure as the kiddo grows we will have a lot of books and toys that will need a home!

  4. Ahhh, it is already looking so great just with these ideas. Storage for books and toys are very essential for nursery. I also love that light and the fact that the nursery chair does not look like a rocker.
