Samuel Hayes’ Nursery

What do you do at 9:30 on the night of your due date – with no contractions, no pressure down below, no weird feelings, no nothing? You take photos of your baby’s nursery and write up a blog post!

My goal/inspiration for the nursery: I wanted to decorate a room that would grow with our boy. Nothing too baby or cutesy, but more of a simple design and set up that has basics that will last for years. I didn’t want the room to be tied down to a certain color scheme, but instead I wanted to accent with color in places where it can be changed out if/when we redecorate in the future.

I’m not a photographer, nor do I claim to be. Details below each photo. Enjoy!

IMG_1223Sure, it could be more organized, but here’s the closet as it stands. Stuffed animals and some toys in the top bin, hand me downs in the bottom bin, plenty of tiny diapers and a play mat, too. Little man has lots of clothes and even more that are stored in the dresser. | Blue bins: Walmart, $3-4

I hope our little Sam likes his room as much as we do! Thanks for reading and sending happy baby-birthing thoughts our way!
