Lunacy

So….I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m a complete lunatic. Maybe it’s because I’m pregnant, maybe not, but I’m gonna go ahead and go with that explanation.

I want to redo Hollis’ room.

I know what you’re thinking. You JUST did her room! I know, I know….see, I told you, I’m a lunatic.

Here’s the thing. We are going to have a baby (duh) and we don’t know the sex of the baby yet, but either way, the baby and Hollis will be sharing a room. Now if it’s a boy, he will only share temporarily (1 or 2 years??), then the guest room will become his permanent room. If we have another girl, she will stay put in Hollis’ room. I’d like them to share for a while because I REALLY like having a designated guest room and I literally just did that room. Also, since Hollis is still little, it would be nice if all of the toys, diapers, and other baby stuff can just stay in one room where it’s easily accessible for both kiddos.

Now here’s where the real lunacy comes in play. I like Hollis’ room, but I don’t love it. I wanted it pink, but the pink I got just isn’t right. I was going for more of a blush, ballerina pink, but it turned out more bubble gum pink. I knew it wasn’t right when I painted it, but I somehow believed that I could make it work or make myself like it….but I just don’t. I also feel a little bad, a.) bringing a baby boy home to a super girly room, or b.) bringing a baby girl home to a room that was really made for her sister and has nothing of her own in it.

I figure bringing home another baby is a great excuse to fix the paint that I don’t really like and go inย  a different direction. I’m thinking of going in more of a neutral direction, not boring, just neutral. I figure if the walls are neutral, I can customize each kiddos space with bedding and accessories.

Here is what the room looks like now…

I really like the black walls, but I’m not sure I can commit to that. I do love how the colors play off of it though.

I really love this one, I love all the colors and I could commit to one dark wall for sure.

I like how light and airy this room feels with just subtle pops of color.

This is such a great gallery wall and such an easy way to bring in color while keeping the walls neutral.

I feel like there is so much character in this room even though the colors are very neutral and subtle.

LOVE these shelves! So much personality in such a neutral space.

Brian thinks I’m nuts for starting this project now and not waiting, but I tried to explain to him that it’s already September which is practically Halloween, which is basically Thanksgiving, which means it’s Christmas and then BAM!….the baby is here. So yeah….that’s what is happening in my crazy pregnant lady brain. (Although, I’m sure the hubs would argue that I’m this crazy alllll the time!)
