There are some high-end products that made the top, but also plenty of budget-friendly products. So buckle your seat belt because this is one long post. Catch you on the flippity flip (10 points to the person who can name that reference).

Dream Nursery Inspiration

*This post contains affiliate links. Click here to learn more.*

When I say "dream nursery", what I'm really saying is "the nursery-I'd-have-if-money-was-no-object". But since that's not the case, I'm just going to have to find cheaper alternatives by using my thrifty, deal-finding self (in other words, by searching the internet endlessly). I'm going for a very soft, neutral look for baby boy. I'm thinking gray and white, with pops of orange. Any suggestions for more affordable alternatives would be greatly appreciated!

+I love this Jaipur Pura Vida Dias Vermillion Orange Area Rug I found on Amazon. I think it's the perfect pop of color. 

+I'm also in love with this Hemnes 8-Drawer Dresser from Ikea. I've seen it all over Pinterest and I'm seriously lusting over it. 

+I stumbled across this Elephant Flensted Nursery Mobile that is adorable! But too expensive for me. I'm thinking I could make something similar (but I might be overestimating my crafting ability).

+I'm sure you've seen The Animal Print Shop floating all over Pinterest. They have the most adorable prints! I love this Baby Rhino Animal Print and think it would be the perfect addition to the nursery. 

+Another pop-of-color find is this Dakotah Pillow Set. Super cute, and actually affordable considering it comes with two pillows. 

+My biggest challenge so far is finding the perfect rocker. Why are they so dang expensive? I love the look of this Nuseryworks Sleepytime Rocker. If you find a steal-of-a-deal on a gray rocking chair, let me know! 

+I really like this simple white Gulliver Crib from Ikea. They have an even cheaper option which I'm considering, but I can't decide if I would leave it in its natural state or paint it white. Suggestions?

+My last find is also from Ikea. Every nursery needs a Jonsbo Gryby Table Lamp, right? Nothing like a little touch of simple design. But with the price tag being what it is, I'm sure I can find something similar for half the price.

+If you haven't seen Adam Levine crashing weddings in his new Maroon 5 music video, do that now.

+Even though I already have a reading list a mile long, I have been wanting to buy this book for some time now. Has anyone else read it?

+I'm in search of a gray rocker like this one or this one for the nursery... except cheaper. Any suggestions?
