When I first started thinking of having a girl, I was sold on having a very traditional nursery with gold gilded surfaces, natural textures and romantic floral patterns. But, lately I've really been thinking about the type of girl I want to raise- a fiercely independent thinker who finds her confidence in her intelligence and creativity, not her outer beauty or attention. So, I started considering a fun, creative oasis that's stimulating and eclectic (because who wants a one dimensional personality?), yet feminine and encouraging.
To help me make this decision, I decided to create two design boards and ask for your help!! I'll be making two more for baby boy options, but for now, weigh in on my baby girl's little space in our home!

So, what do you think?! Any thoughts? I love the traditional look; maybe I'm over thinking the design/personality correlation. But, I also really love the youthful, fun vibe of the whimsical design. It's a little less cookie cutter and would be fun to put together. But, would I get tired of all the color? Would it be overstimulating for such little eyes? I can't wait to hear your opinions!!
