Little Boy Blue June 1, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — oshikagang @ 6:07 am

A lot of people have been asking if we’re all prepared for the new baby. Well, finally, I just finished the baby room today. I haven’t experienced the same nesting urges as I did last time, and didn’t find the same immense satisfaction by doing crafts and sewing.
But it’s now done, and I’m pleased with the outcome.

The room used to be our guest room/dumping ground, and it was a very bright celery green.
So: blue or blue? Here are some options:

And here are our two finalists:

Various stuff piled in the corner and waiting to be set up:

And finally, the reveal:

Our friends have lent us a bassinet for beside the bed, and a hospital bag is half packed. So we’re ready to go!

    What colour did you finally decide on (name?) We are about to do a bunch of painting, and third floor attic is going to be a soft blue, but don’t want too powdery. Like your choice!

    It’s called ‘Summer Showers’ and is very light, and has a touch of grey in it. The room is north-facing, which means that it doesn’t get direct light and anything in there will look bluer than it is. So we wanted something very light and not so intensely ‘baby blue’. I think this is our favourite colour selection of the entire house!
