One of my biggest struggles as a mom is how to keep kid stuff from taking over your house. As soon as they’re born [well, even before they’re born!], the items start piling up: swing, play yard, bouncy seat, baby bathtub, the list goes on.
Then, they start getting toys. Ride-on toys, big bouncy balls, trucks, cranes, and more. Pretty soon, it feels like the walls are closing in. How can you stop kid stuff from taking over your home?
When we found out Baby Blair was on the way, we knew we’d have to do some rearranging. Previously, Colton was using what is now Blair’s room as his playroom. I didn’t want Colton to feel too displaced, plus I knew we’d all be spending a lot of time in the nursery anyway. So, I began thinking of how to design a sibling-friendly nursery…
If you’ve been reading here for awhile, it’s no secret that I’ve been having a lot of fun decorating our baby girl’s nursery. I chose a monochrome color scheme and added a lot of personalized details to make the room perfect for our little lady. But, one nagging area bothering me was the flooring. We have builder basic carpet in the upstairs of our home, which doesn’t exactly scream “stylish.” We didn’t have much use for the upstairs bedrooms when we built the house 5 years ago (pre-kids!), so we went neutral. I wanted to add a fun rug to the nursery to make the floor fit in with the rest of the room’s decor. After some research on the best rugs for baby nursery, I found one that checked all my boxes!

We’ve made some major progress in our monochrome baby girl nursery since the last time I wrote about Baby’s room. I can’t believe she’ll be joining us in just 2 short months! I’ve been working quite a bit to make sure her room is ready for her arrival… since, let’s be real, I won’t have any time to work on the nursery once she’s here. Honestly, sometimes the thought of entertaining 2 children all day scares me. At least newborns don’t require much entertainment. Just milk. Lots and lots and lots of milk. But enough about that, I’m excited to show you what I’ve been working on!

Our sweet baby girl is set to make her arrival in less than 3 months, which means nursery preparations are in full swing! My nesting instinct has kicked in a lot earlier with this baby than my first. That’s probably for the best, since I have a lot less time to work on the nursery this time around. Taking care of a 2-year-old takes up the majority of my time! Who would’ve thought? Since nesting is on my mind, today I’m sharing 5 Posh Ways to Personalize your Baby’s Nursery. Read on to find out how we’re making Baby Girl’s nursery personalized just for her!
