Deja Vu

I really have a new-found appreciation for interior designers. After trying to figure out the perfect nursery I realize it's not so simple. When you look at a room that's already pieced together you think it's going to be a cinch to replicate. Oh, sure, I can find a piece of furniture like that. That wall color shouldn't be too hard to match. All I need is bedding in that shade. I had a great vision of what my baby girls room would look like with an awesome picture of my dream nursery to help guide me. I'm finding it much harder than I thought to put together though. I have the crib set up and the walls painted but that's as far as things have progressed because I just can't make decisions. My mother in law is going to make the bedding and curtains and I need to pick out fabrics. This is extremely difficult because I'm not seeing the fabrics as a finished product. I'm seeing them as large pieces of material that don't seem like they belong as a crib set or drapes. It might have been easier had I just went with already made bedding and tried to match curtains but I do want my mother in law to add her touch of love and customization. Plus, the bedding I've come across all has little butterflies or flowers on it, which is so cute, just not what I'm looking for. I know this isn't a big deal. I know my baby isn't going to care what I pick and I know whatever I do choose is going to look great. This is exactly how I felt when I was wedding planning. I knew it didn't matter what my dress looked like or what my color scheme was but I found it really hard to decide and ended up rushing it all last minute. I'm not going to say I was displeased with my choices but I do wish I spent less time being indecisive and more time properly preparing. I have nine weeks until my precious bundle of joy is due and I've had until this point to get things in place. Why is this such a challenge for me?!

I know it will look fabulous. And all this stress just goes to show how much you care! :)

I go about decorating with no plan whatsoever. I just choose what calls to me and hope somehow it all works together. It always does too. But then again I am very decisive. I will pick out a paint color on the spot. I guess I am kind of easy to please.

I know EXACTLY how you feel. I, too, have 9 weeks left (although probably about 6-7 because my children always come early) and I have all these ideas in my head for the nursery but I can't put them together.
