tour of the bedroom

Here is a peek of our little bedroom, which i have spent the past couple days transforming into a baby room as well. We live in a 1 bedroom apartment and so far its been plenty of room for us. Our lease ends in January so we will eventually  be moving into a 2 bedroom. But since we are having an addition to the family before then, i got to thinking how to make our room baby friendly but still cozy for all of us. 

My main idea was to buy the minimum amount of things that a baby really needs. So for example, most of the babe's clothes are stored in the top drawer of the red dresser. Any clothes that are 6 months and bigger i just put away into a bag since we will not be using them in this apartment. Also the changing table has perfect shelves for other baby items. The bassinet pictured is borrowed from friends since babies only use them for a couple months. Eventually we will buy a crib, but we dont need it now. Pretty much simplicity is my motto. 

All in all, im liking our room very much, it feels very inviting and cozy :)
