In passing, both online and physical I have heard quite a few ladies complain of nice baby gear. Specifically, making fun of the baby product and decor from places like Restoration Hardware, Pottery Barn and other high-end retailers. True that the items can be rather expensive for someone who is going to quickly become too big for them but still they are so beautiful. However, none of those women complained about the price, they were complaining about the type of parent that would actually have a nursery that looks so fancy-pants. Whether or not they believed their personal parent category was "super-mom" or "anti-mom", it had no relevance on the topic.
It is honestly no surprise that I have had a Pinterest board that circles around little ones and families for years. The way I like to create, organize, plan and share...Why would you expect anything else?! It doesn't matter if it is for my best-est of friends, nieces, nephews or eventually us.
But what a lot of people don't know is that I have never been a fan of traditionally cutesy baby things. I am happy for all those out there who do like the traditional style because that is what makes that person happy and that parent will know what is best for their baby. But for me...let's set the record straight before it all starts. When envisioning our future little ones duckies, buggies, and baby animals just are not going to be a highlight in our nursery. Seriously, dump the little price and princess talk.
Our future babies will be beautiful, bold, glamorous, tough, and handsome. They will be the diamonds, opals, pearls and onyxes of our eye and their nursery should reflect that. They will be Emperors and Empresses, Dukes and Duchesses. So forget to swallowing pastels and bring in the deep colors, mix it up a little.
Honestly, that goes for any baby gathering as well...showers, what have you. Oh please, it has got to be tasteful. Not a fan of stuff thrown together.
Call me pretentious if you want at least I know what I like. (And at least I don't hate on other mothers who don't match my sense of style)
