Last year, I was so heartbroken this nursery was never finished the way it was suppose to be. It was painted but never decorated, a crib was never set-up and Nolan never came home to it. Instead the nursery turned into a memory room, a picture in one corner and a memory box in another and the nautical chart that we planned to hang… hung with a gold plate underneath that said “In Memory of”. All that planning for a nautical nursery for our little cruise baby was gone.
This year when I started planning for a new nursery, I knew I wanted to keep the color but knew I couldn’t keep his bedding. I wanted this baby to have his own theme, and thus came the train theme. But I didn’t have the heart to take down the nautical chart, the pictures or the anchor I had hung for Nolan. This room was both my boys, and I wanted it to reflect that. I decided on new bedding and a few new things and it seemed to work out perfect. I think simple is better and I love the way it turned out.
