While we just finally shared the news about our second baby, I’ve been planning our nursery for a while. After having Bodhi and putting together his nursery, I have a very clear understanding of what is needed to function smoothly with a newborn. Organization and simplicity are key. And a soothing, warm and cozy space is helpful. While I still LOVE grey as a wall color (after all, it’s everywhere in our home), I am leaning towards a warmer neutral for Baby #2’s nursery.
We received this adorable handmade Short Horn stuffed animal from WE’VE Built. I think it perfectly captures the colors and textures I want to incorporate into our nursery. Think very organic and soft. If it’s a boy, we will likely skip the pink, but the general soft look and feel with natural textures is exactly what we’re going for. And I love decorating the nursery with just a few statement pieces.
This sweet Short Horn will look great on the chair or on a shelf. And when baby is bigger, it can be used as a toy instead of decor. We plan to reuse our crib and only purchase a few basic things and of course, a great glider or rocker this time.
And we will go with very simple bedding this time around. We plan to skip the bumper though. I’m so excited to already have this much of our inspiration ready and adding this sweet Short Horn from WE’VE Built to the nursery decor is perfect.
