Inspiration Board Wednesday: Rustic Lodge

So I mentioned yesterday that I was starting the planning for the baby boy that will arrive in our lives at the end of January….
While I loved some of the things that I saw on Lay Baby Lay, it wasn’t quite what I was looking for but I did love the warmth that the inspiration boards had.  So here is my first pass at this nursery…I’m sure it will change a hundred times before I start actually making it happen but at least I have an end goal…

So ideally this is going to be a very neutral palette, mostly black and khaki with hints of red.  The buffalo plaid rug will really tie the red splashes together so I’m definitely looking forward to getting that in the room.  The walls will be a light beige color.  The room isn’t that large so I don’t want to go super dark on the walls but instead I’d rather keep them light.  The vintage cabin sign is really the jumping off point for this entire board so hopefully I can snag it before someone else does….
As for furniture….not totally sure about it just yet.  Since we  are still in our house with no sign of moving anytime soon, I need to plan for the space that we have.
For the crib I was thinking of this, since its not solid wood and would probably make the space feel more open:
DaVinci Jenny Lind 3-in-1 Stationary Convertible Wood Crib in Ebony
Not sure on a dresser/changing table combo just yet.  I think I’m going to scour some local thrift stores and antique stores to see whats really out there…Wish me luck!
