Sorry about my absence this week, I’ve been trying to get around to photographing the cottage kitchen and doing a lot of other things.
These are the images that are influencing the nursery design,
Gah Barry you killed me with this. That Paule Marrot print was on sale at the Well Appointed House recently and it would’ve been the perfect capstone for Baby Girl’s room but alas…I couldn’t fork over the duckets required. The rug in this room is a natural fiber with a custom pinkÂ band around the perimeterÂ polished off with some nailheads. My Mom gave me a round jute rug for the nurseryÂ and I’m wondering if I could get the local carpet place to hook me up with this? Def worth asking.
Clearly I’ve settled on aÂ pink and gold/tan/beige scheme. I was up in the air in a previous post.
I’d like to put an inexpensive bench with casters that will also serve as storageÂ under the windows
withÂ anÂ upholstered cushion and pillow menagerie a la Nathan Turner
Â I’m also thinking about framing the crib in bookshelves for additional storage, IKEA would most likely be the source for the shelving. The closet is short and tiny in this room so we need some more places to stash some stuff away in baskets. The crib is 54″ wide and a full size bed is roughly 58″ so I wouldÂ make sure thatÂ the opening wasÂ wide enough to accomodate a bed in the future.
Â a simple, tailored crib skirt like thisÂ would be pretty alright.
AÂ few other sure things,

Betsy is either shipping a bentwood stool to me orÂ carrying that thing on to a plane,Â either way its coming and will sit next to the Nurseryworks Sleepytime rocker from DC’s room.Â
