Sometimes I think about how the apartment can and can't grow with the hubby and I. Things it can't do: sprout a third bedroom, gain a pantry, grow a backyard. Things it can do: someday include a nursery.
I know, I know--it's absurdly premature to think about stuff like that. We're a loooong way from adding to our family that way. But still, a girl will dream sometimes.
I'm totally not the frilly, pink decor girl. Industrial-chic more sums up the feeling that's been grabbing my attention lately, and there's no reason that can't apply to a nursery or a child's room. In fact, it's kind of perfect for a little boy's bedroom.
Let me show you:
See? Very industrial with the wire storage and the iron crib. But the Maurice Sendak touches make it a kid's room. Obviously both boys and girls love "Where The Wild Things Are," so there's no need to limit it to one gender, but this is just begging for a little boy to bring it to life. Envision this with a chalkboard paint wall and lots of toys. Maybe even a faux potted plant (no real dirt, please) to add to the wild-ness of the room.
Kinda makes you never want to see another standard-issue white crib again, huh?
