Since I started the dreams for our nursery long before we were matched to a little girl, we decided to go with a gender neutral color palette that would allow us to accent for a boy or girl once we were matched. I also wanted something that could easily be transformed into a toddler's room without having to purchase new decorations or bed sets.
So, we stuck with the already painted mocha walls, added in pops of primary colors and pink (once we found out we were having a girl), and, of course, a few dachshunds here and there. Check it out:

Needless to say, I'm in love with this room! It turned out better than I even could have hoped it would.
Before Madi came home I used to sit in this room and stare at the walls, anxious for the day when I could share this pretty space with her. Now, although she's much too young to appreciate the decorations, we still soak up every minute we have together in her little space.
