I promise Fifi Cheek is not turning into a baby blog, but I did want to share some ideas for the nursery.
We have a few things in place, like the crib.
If you can LOVE a crib, then this crib by Dwell Studio had me at hello.
I love the clean lines and the modern legs and especially love that I don't have to deal with a crib skirt.
I also bought these cuties for the nursery right when I found out that I was pregnant. They are from Anthropologie and are paper maiched out of French books.
Do you remember how I told you how much I feel in love with the art site 20x200? I started out with buying just the baby giraffe for our gallery wall, but once I found out I was pregnant, wanted a collection of these baby animals for the nursery. I"ll hang these in a collection above the dresser or changing table.
With the crib and art work being neutral, I want to punch up the rest of the room with lots of color and patterns. I think that it would be fun to play off the orange in the giraffe and maybe pull in pinks or corals, but I don't want the animal theme to be so literal that we have zebra print drapes. Instead, I would love to something like Quadrille Kazak in orange and magenta. So chic and fun and bright and a fabric that could grow with her into her next room. This particular fabric isn't in the budget, but I think I can find something close!
For lighting, I want to do something really large and fun and this Ps Maskros chandelier from Ikea just might fit the bill, both in design and budget. I think the glam factor could go way up with a good coat of gold spray paint.
The husband is taking me to Charleston for a babymoon for a long, much needed weekend away! I can't wait to scour the antique shops and eat my way around the city.
I hope you all have a fab weekend!
