Big boy Emerson is getting upgraded to a new rustic nautical themed toddler room! Our thoughts are to create a more age appropriate space for him, with lots of toy storage, a darker rug than the cream one he had in his former nursery, and plenty of space to spread out and play.
We are re-using a lot of his nursery wall decor, lamp and other small items. We have several personalized nautical items that people have made or gifted Emerson that we love. We painted his new room a very light gray which is almost a gray/white.
Because Emerson won’t be out of crib phase by the time baby Elliott gets here, we will be buying another 4-in-1 convertible crib set. It doesn’t really bother us that much though, because of the options that a convertible set offers. It ends up being a good bang-for-your-buck if you buy all the convertible pieces at the same time which takes you from crib, toddler bed, day bed to full size bed. I am looking at dark grey furniture sets like this crib and dresser.
For Christmas, Santa brought a cute white table and chairs set that is already getting a lot of use. I purchased these navy curtains already that almost have a linen look to them. I want a durable medium dark gray toned rug to hold up with all the play traffic it will get. This one is highly rated.
Storage was important to us for this room, and this room has a nice deep closet, so we purchased some white shelves for lots of toy storing. I like the idea of having organized places and bins for everything, plus the option to close the door and keep it concealed. We purchased this brand of storage cubes from Lowes. I purchased several storage totes to use in the closet for organizing the little miscellaneous toys. In addition, I want to create a reading nook that includes a little Pottery Barn chair and bookshelf area for book storage.
We have this camera in Emerson’s room that is highly recommended if you are considering grabbing a camera but aren’t crazy about spending $250+. This is a general home camera that does have sound features and wifi/app capabilities. We will get a second for the nursery too.
