NURSERY


I got an email from fabric.com about their sale on retro and mod fabric.  I had to check it out.   I was drawn to the dolce collection.  Particularly these 3...






And this Good Earth Maps fabric



My kids, now 5 and 3, didn't have their own nursery because we just didn't have the space then.
If I were to decorate a girl's nursery now,  I'd probably do something like this...

I would paint the walls a nice gray color.  Then I would mix and match those fabrics(which is $5.99/yard or less by the way) for the bedding, chair cushions and the window treatment.   I'd search craigslist for a similar dresser and rocking chair.   I'd buy the classic Jenny Lind crib in white.  I'd splurge on 2 Jonathan Adler sconces and blue zebra rug(ok, maybe not.  But they're fun!).   A couple of DIY projects are in order.  One is a cute paper mobile.  There is a nice tutorial here.  Then I'd make roman shades out of mini blinds (Little Green Notebook's tutorial here). 
I'd have to add some personal touches like an original art and a growth chart like this that A Perfect Gray shared with us.
Lastly I'd install 3 white floating shelves for toys and books.

I would do the same for a boy's nursery but use these 2 instead of the orange ones...





So it would look like this...


There you have it!  Pretty mod and retro, don't you think?!
Happy Easter!
