I’m on a mission to get our apartment decorated so it serves us better, instead of us serving it. Think about this with me: how many times do we tell ourselves we’ll work on X or we’ll fix X or we’ll paint/organize/move X? And then months pass by and we still haven’t done X? I have finished reading Nesting Place and it’s still challenging me to make our current home our dream home (instead of waiting on our next), because according to Myquillyn, our current home is our dream home according to our last. I love her perspective.
So, I’m on a mission to get the bedroom fully decorated as the nursery :) In just a handful of months we’ll have two babes in there (whaaaaaaaaat?! This pregnancy is going by so quickly!) and we don’t plan on moving. We have two large stretches of empty wall space that need to be decorated. For one stretch I’d like to fill it with a large world map. For the other, adjustable wooden wall shelving.

We have a lot of room in the bedroom for play, which is amazing. I love going in there with Maxwell throughout the day and letting him make a huge mess. He’s learning so much and it’s a real treat to join him on the floor. There’s even plenty of space for Bauer to chew his bone without Maxwell constantly crawling over to say “hello”. Snort.
For a long time I’ve thought it’d be fun to have a world map in our home. So, I’ve been gathering some inspiring nursery/playroom photos with alarge world map on the wall.
We have charcoal-colored carpet in the bedroom (there’s hardwood or stone tile in the rest of the apartment) with white walls. All of the furniture in the bedroom is white, although I’m considering painting the nightstand a fun color — maybe bright red? I love so much the pop of color a large world map would add to the nursery. Maxwell’s toys are pretty colorful/unisex, and those items are further inspiration for me.
Below are a couple photos of our furniture and wall art, but we’ve rearranged the room a couple times since taking these photos:
I would love to find a really large, like really super large, map for one of the walls. One of these would be fun:
Have you bought any world maps online for your home? I may end up touring Los Angeles in search of a map. I mean, there are just a couple of thrift, consignment and vintage resale stores to choose from :)
Finger’s crossed I’ll be back soon with more updates!
