Since we’re staying in our current apartment when the baby comes, we don’t really have much decorating to do. Nothing like taking an already small space and adding another roommate to make you realize you really do live in New York.
I’m still not terribly worried. We’ve got plans to set up the crib in our bedroom and add some storage to the living room. But it also means that all the “extras” that new moms get for their bundles of joy most likely won’t be making an appearance in our apartment. I’m trying to decide what’s really necessary versus what you get just because everyone else did.
We decided to skip on the glider. As much as it would be lovely to have, we couldn’t justify putting another piece of furniture into our apartment. Instead I’ll use the Eames style rocker we got a couple of years back. This weekend when we were walking around Ikea looking at different storage options I spotted this faux fur rug and knew immediately that its new home was on my rocking chair.
Well, we might not have a crib or a changing table or a name for this child, but least I have a fuzzy chair to sit on once she arrives.
If anyone is interested, the owl pillow is something Jon picked up years ago on a trip to Denmark. Is he good or what?
