Getting Ready for Baby!
My sweet friend Kelly is Getting Ready for Baby! After a very long wait and adoption journey, this loving family will be bringing home a sweet baby boy on July 31st. We are so excited for their new arrival, and jumped at the chance to give them a few design inspirations for the perfect nursery via our GET A ROOM design program.

Kelly’s Room Wish List:
- Neutral Colors, loves gray, blue and navy. Existing Wall Color: Anew Gray SW7030
- Light, Airy and Clean
- No baby themes
- Must have matching bedding for a full size bed that will reside in the room
- Crib (pre- purchased) White Finish
- Wishlist -Wooden Glider with Ottoman
In the process of getting ready for baby, this couple needed to have the nursery basics set up for the adoption home study. All of the large components for the room like paint, crib and changing tables are complete. However, now that we know it is a little boy on the way we can add a few more gender specifics details to the decor of the nursery to define the space.
Option 2: Building Paper Planes
After reviewing the first two options, Kelly loved option number one. However, they had recently decided to incorporate their son’s birth location by adding in a subtle nautical theme to the nursery. So we have come up with option number three as a bonus surprise for you guys. At this point all three options can easily be mixed and matched to create a lovely nursery for a baby boy.
Option 3- A Nautical Beach Boy
The first thing Kelly asked for as her personal wishlist was a wooden glider. I personally love the Dutailier Gliders. After doing a ton of research during this same chapter of our lives, I determined that Dutailier was the best possible gilder on the market. Well known for durability, as well as longevity. After spending hours sitting in mine, I can also say it was a very comfortable Glider, as well. In fact it has now been passed along to another family that is getting countless hours of use from it over 10 years later and it still looked brand new. I do recommend adding the optional ottoman for those late night feedings and rocking.
The nice thing about a glider verses a large upholstered chair, is that should there be any spit up, which their will. The cushions are easily removable, and washable. Plus they can be reordered easily too. So you are not stuck with a chair that can not be cleaned and could potential have a sour smell. Remember “everything” needs to cleanable in a nursery or disposable.
