I'm not sure about anyone else but my second pregnancy was so much harder than my first. Not only was I physically tired but mentally exhausted from rationalizing with our mobile toddler! It took me a while to get inspired and to work on Oliver's nursery and while I am happy with how it turned out, I think the design reflects the simplicity that seemed easiest during a trying time. The space we used for his nursery used to be my craft room before we added our studio addition. The room is probably about 70 square feet and is covered with terra cotta colored tile (sigh). We moved all of my craft stuff 2 years ago before Evan was born and in the meantime used this room as what Kiel dubbed "plant hospice" or basically a spare room where I kept a few old college books and my porch plants and forgot to water them in the winter. We had intended to turn it into a reading room but that never happened. It then just accumulated stuff that we intended to sell at garage sales.
