The baby may not be here yet (any day now, I’m 40 weeks and 2 days), but his Gotham City Batman nursery is ready and waiting!  When we found out we were having a boy and were discussing how to decorate the nursery, I said I wanted a New York City theme while my husband said Batman. The compromise was easy: Gotham City.

I didn’t want the Batman aspect to take over the whole room, I was aiming for a more sophisticated and subtle Batman theme than typical. I really think I achieved that by focusing on the architecture of Gotham City, which of course is New York!  Manhattan is our favourite place in the whole world and every time I go in this room I’m taken back there.

That giant New York City mural is definitely the highlight of the room. It covers the whole wall and is so grand–the photos do not do it justice.  And I also just adore the acrylic crib, isn’t it posh?!

There are a few DIYs in this room (let me know in the comments if you want a tutorial for anything). I made the Dark Knight Mobile hanging above the crib out of cardstock, the yarn covered monogram, the batman paper garland under the book shelf, and the grey, white and turquoise chevron crochet blanket.  And you can see more pictures from our DIY Badlands Maternity Photo Shoot here.  These projects were all done within the last month, none took too much time or effort.

I am really in love with that picture of Batman on the Chrysler building, isn’t it magnificent?  A great Etsy find!  The Addams Family (my favourite family–aren’t Gomez and Morticia the ultimate couple?!) three legged onesie was a custom purchase from a terrific Etsy seller as well, and we found the Baby Han Solo drawing at Comic Con!

Just like Baby J, our future baby boy has a pair of vintage shoes and the complete set of Hardy Boys books (she has the complete vintage collection of Nancy Drew.  I will update with a link to her Big Girl room here soon!). I haven’t started making his birth announcement cross stitch yet, but it’s next on my crafting to do list.  He already has a fabulous set of New York and Batman themed books, and if he’s anything like Baby J those will be his favourite part of the room!

We love this nursery and think he will like it right into his Big Boy years. All that’s left to complete the room is his arrival!
