Transitioning the nursery

When I designed my son’s nursery, I took great pains to not make it too gender specific.  The intent was to be able to transform it easily, if necessary, to a room for a girl if we should need to do that down the road.  And guess what… WE NEED TO DO THAT!!!  YAY!!

Now there, are some items that are 100%, without question staying in the room.  The pendant lamp, the bookshelf, the rocker, the dresser, the bookcase (not seen), the dresser/changing table (also not seen), the radiator cover and the roman shades.  I also have no plans to paint.  So that really leaves me with minimal things to change out to customize the place to our new addition to the family.

I’m still not 100% sure I won’t just switch out the FLOR tiles we already have with some pinks…but if I DO decide to go all CrAAAaZy I am in LOVE, LOVE, LOVE with FLOR’s new Damascus print in black and white.  The problem is that everything else in the room is a shade of tan or brown.  So no matter HOW much I love it and am a fan of breaking rules…I just don’t think it will work for us.
