So after finding out bubba's sex, I spent the weekend shopping. First with my mum on Saturday for paint, curtain and other decor options whereby we agreed that blue and white with a touch of silvery grey was the perfect colour scheme.
So on Sunday I set out to drag S from store to store to inspect my finds and we made our weekend pilgrimage to Baby Bunting (and let me pause to give the Helensvale store enormous snaps for their superior customer service... they could not be more helpful or accommodating) to look at yet more baby paraphernalia and pick up our cot, change table, bassinet and other bits.
The husband spotted this nursery set and all my hard work and research from Saturday went out the window - I thought it was perfect for bubba's room...
Living Textiles Hopscotch if you are wondering... anyway, S didn't like that the monkey was featured enough (go figure) and spotted this set...
Living Textiles Baboo ... I liked it well enough but thought it was a little bland and neutral considering we knew we were having a boy. We ended up lay-buying it though (the WHOLE set including lamp, bumpers, mobile, decals etc) as S was quite insistent on this one - lay-by is my best friend now as it means I don't have to store more baby stuff till I need it.
So resigned to redoing the whole nursery in my head, I did some googling Sunday night and discovered two other themes of Living Textiles that I didn't see in store...
I love that both are more colourful than Baboo and if I had to choose, I like the Casey's ABCs the best. So I set about putting my case to S that we should choose one of these two and see if Baby Bunting would swap over the set. I subtly pushed the blue set but S went straight for Playdate (I think the guy has something against pale blue that's tied up in his dislike of Man City) and honestly, rather than argue, I accepted as I really am happy with either.
Baby Bunting was more than happy to allow me to be a pain and swap our lay-by and bubba will now have a nursery themed in blue, green and browns/yellow.
Which set would you have chosen?
