Jenny Lind Crib
You dream of these moments for years...picking out a baby name and decorating the nursery. Fabric swatches are piled all over your dining room table as you decide what matchsticks you should use under the curtains and if the glider should match the shams on the daybed or the crib bumper. Your soon-to-be little boy's name is PERFECT and his monogram is already being printed on your Leontine Linen order...
YEAH FUCKING RIGHT!
Between working 50+ hours at work, feeling like humpty dumpty, and the Holidays; I haven't even picked a paint color or name. And yes...I do have plenty of time but the ceilings are finally being scraped upstairs (eat me popcorn) and our nice little worker said he could paint the nursery also for a song....
HELP!!!!!!!!!!!! We have a yellow kitchen, blue guest room (all very mild pastels)...does that force me to do pale green? I love pale green but also have some pretty fabulous Volanges Toile by Manuel Canovas pale green curtains...maybe I should paint the guest room pale green and put the curtains in there and go for baby blue in the nursery?
And is Serena and Lily over? I LOVE it but afraid by the time I pop this kiddo out S&L will be so 200andlate.
I know I like the Jenny Lind Crib pictured up top (and above in the Serena & Lily pic). I have a daybed for the room, and I like some of the items below...just having massive color issues. Most people tell me to try to make sure I can carry some of the items to his big boy room. Oh right....more complications...
