Since we found out we were pregnant people have been asking if we had started planning the nursery. Because we knew we were going to fix out the sex of the baby, the answer to their questions has always been a firm “no”. I really made a conscience effort to never picture our life with a boy or a girl so I wouldn’t get my hopes up for a certain one. And it worked! Of course there was a second of “I wonder how I would feel if she had just said girl” but then I looked at my husband who had tears coming down his face and I forgot that having a girl was even an option.
So now that we know a little boy will be joining our family in May, it was time to start planning his room! It should come as a shock to no one that I was drawn to my favorite neutrals, grey and navy, because they are just so perfect for not only the style of our home, but for a little boy, too. A little pattern mixing to liven things up and whoa baby, I’m so in love! I can’t wait to get started putting it together. Shockingly, Nathan was on board with every single thing pictured below – even the fringe stool (which is Nate Berkus for Target and I’M SO OBSESSED) – except the navy pillow with the gold detailing? Boys are weird.
The only thing I’ve yet to find a good option for are drawer pulls for the dresser. Anyone have any good site ideas for drawer pulls? I’d like to add a few more gold details so I’m thinking this would be a good spot. I’m also hoping his Mimi will make me something like this because, hi, over sized art is expensive but want to have that be another place where to pull in just a touch of gold!

So…what do you think?! Am I missing anything major? The dresser will also serve as a changing table, so don’t say that
