Our baby girl is due anytime now, my due date is just under 2 weeks away but I have a feeling that she's going to make an early arrival. We have started to get her nursery together but she won't actually be sleeping in there for a few months yet as they have to sleep in your room for the first 6 months. Her room so far has a cot and a few toys and her clothes but its very neutral and plain and I just want to add a few pretty girly bits to make it look pretty and girly. I'm not planning on spending loads of money on her room as we rent so won't be living here forever.

I thought i'd just do a post featuring a few room ideas and products that i've spotted that I want to get or have got already for bubba's room. I will be doing a nursery tour once i've got a few more bits and once her room is finished.

I want her room to be pretty but not over the top, I just want a few nice simple prints and patterns. I'm thinking a pink, white and grey colour scheme. I will be keeping the walls white, as I mentioned above we are renting right now so I don't fancy spending lots of money painting. I have seen little reusable wall decals online so might get something to add a little bit of colour/ pattern to the walls. I was thinking maybe some polka dots in pink or rose gold to add a little something. I am planning on putting up a couple of picture shelves so I can have a few nice prints on the walls. I've picked out a couple here, the prints will be quite simple and I will get some plain white or black frames from Ikea.

We do need to get a blind for the nursery too as we only have a little curtain up at the moment and I want to get a blackout blind so that the room is really dark during the day so it's easier for the baby to sleep. Ambition Blinds have a huge selection of blinds including a selection of blackout roller blinds and vertical blinds. Around the window area I want to hang some bunting or fairy lights too to make it pretty and girly.

I've actually got this rug from Amara ready to pop in the nursery, It's a nice grey and white rug with stars on so it's neutral and could easily be used in any room, not just a nursery. I think the grey and white will pull everything together and it's a really decent size.

I want to get some nice monochrome bedding, i'm loving this half moon pattern and have managed to find some fitted sheets for the cot in this print which i'm really excited about. I will get a few pink sheets too but I was thinking of keeping the bedding monochrome and then getting a few pretty cushions and toys to make her cot prettier. I love this cloud cushion from Sass and Belle and think its perfect for a nursery.

I want to make a DIY mobile for bubbas cot, I've been thinking about making one with clouds on or wool pom poms on. I will be sticking to the pink, grey and white theme. I really need to make a start on this as shes going to be here soon.

That's it really so I think the room is going to be pretty clean and white with little pops of pink splashed around. I want to keep things pretty simple and just add little bits of pattern here and there. I think once she starts playing with toys and reading books that there will be plenty of colour around but for now I just want it to look pretty and be somewhere she can get a good nights sleep.
