nursery ideas for the babe.

We've got a dilemma. It's huge. I have no idea which direction to go for this baby boy's nursery. 
We won't get to paint or set up a room for a little while, but the task of getting the right crib and right rocker is becoming daunting. 
I thought I had it all figured out, then I ran into troubles picking out upholstery fabric for the rocker - a Roundtop find! Now, everything I thought I knew has changed. 
The drama.

Now, I have no idea whether I want to go moody and outdoorsy, or airy and calm. 

Here's moody and outdoorsy.
Dark charcoal (almost black) walls with board and batten.
Deep green curtains.
Vintage rug.
Dark brass knobs, and lighting.
Our craigslist find dresser (still needs to be painted white).
the white Sundvik crib (Ikea)?! and the black Poang chair (Ikea, too)?!


airy and calm.
A super light hue of blue on the walls, and board and batten of course.
White linen curtains.
Black and White graphic rug.
The same Craiglist find dresser.
the Sundvik crib in gray-brown?! and a cotton blend fabric in teal or emerald?!

WHAT do I do?

In other news, I've been putting together a playlist for when the baby gets here, and comes home.
This song has been on constant repeat. 

I hope for these things for him.
That he always remember when God showed His face to him, that his soul thirsts for Him, that he will sing of His faithfulness, that he will ever be satisified in Him.
I want this to be constantly playing in our house, if nothing more than a reminder to my own soul, it's just beautiful.

  1. That is really tough, but I have to say I'm leaning toward airy & calm.
