So being a designer, friends are naturally wondering what my plans are for TBD’s nursery.  I admit, I haven’t done much of anything yet, except think about what I might do.  Between not wanting to jinx myself and now renovating our downstairs rec room to be a family room and guest quarters, I haven’t really had the time. Now that the renovations are coming to a close though, the guest furniture can move downstairs making room for the nursery.  There are some things we will not be changing in the room.  The tobacco colored walls (also fondly referred to as “baby poop brown”), turquoise drapes, small chinese paintings, and large world map from IKEA will remain.  This is more or less what the room looks like now:

Here are my thoughts on how we will do it up for baby.  I bit of an animal theme, bright colors, clean modern and inexpensive furnishings (in the end baby doesn’t appreciate quality and will rough everything up anyway), and a fun stencil on the ceiling for when he’s laying in the crib.
