    I can't even blame my dh! I've directed the look myself and I've just come to the conclusion that really, I have no idea.

    I'm not happy with the wall colour the most but we repainted before we moved in here last year and it seems wasteful to repaint so soon. the carpet (also brand new) is a dark grey. now I'm also having second thoughts about the $800 armchair we bought.

    I didn't want anything too babyish but now I feel it just has no vibe at all.

    plus I seek to change my mind every week about what look I do want.

    I was originally aiming for grey, white & gold but it just feels really dull.

    so now I'm thinking mint green, white/grey and gold.

    blergh. I think I'll move everything out later on and put things back one by one. then decide what needs to be added/left out.

    I spent $180 on one of those leather gold pouffs so if that is in the "out" pile I'll be annoyed.

    totally first works probs I know. the healthy happy baby is all that should matter, I'm getting bogged down with peripheral sh.t
    Your nursery sounds nice!! If you want to make it a bit more baby without going over the top you could get some wall decals. A lot of them are very bright and (a little garish IMO) but there are millions out there and maybe you could find some that suit the rest of the decor. Some simple teddy bear silhouettes in mint and gold or something. Pinterest has great ideas. Good luck!!

    @turquoisecoast I think mint green, grey and gold sounds beautiful. Very classy. Keep the pouffe :-)

    I understand, getting the nursery right was very important to me too.

    thanks hunni

    I think I'm prob just being precious and over the top. also I have unrealistic expectations and want it to look like a vogue photo shoot 😂

    I think it does need a colour as the grey/white & gold on its own is a bit drab.

    will check out nice wall decals too.

    thanks for the kind words ladies xx

    I think it sounds lovely as well. The gold pouffe would be my most favourite thing!

    Could you add a brighter cushion/throw or bed linen, maybe a light coloured print for the wall if you feel it's all a bit dull?

    Best wishes

    Also etsy have very nice downloadable wall art where you can often choose your colours and it's pretty cheap, then you can get nice frames for everything. For me it's about accessories :-)

    my main issue is the wall colour (a cool white/grey) and this chair I bought. the chair is amazing but I'm now thinking it won't go with anything else.

    here's a pic of said chair (nb: not my house!)

    it's not the end of the world I guess. as others have said bub will be staying in our room for the first few months and his room will be more for changing, dressing etc.ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1453773331.157441.jpg

    Still feeling upset that my client was really rude to me and made false accusations against me. How can someone be so rude and be such a lier ((

    I have never been talked to like that in my whole life, it hurts so much. ..he got such a huge sense of entitlement and thinks i should do everything for him. Everyone can see through his lies, he just simply doesn't like me.
