One of myÂ besties, Amanda is having a girl! Such amazing news for their family, they already have a little boy and now they’ll complete their collection, ha!
In light of this joyous news, I decided to mock up a nursery for this precious girl scheduled for arrival in October.Â My source of inspirationÂ comes from theÂ Baby Giraffe series by Sharon Montrose,
This darling would be perfect in a large size on the nursery wall. 20×200 currentlyÂ has a 30″x24″.
After seeing Baby Giraffe No.5, my mind wandered to Rubie Green’s pink chevron fabric called East Village and then everything else kind of came together.
Crib bumper in Rubie GreenÂ East Village (pink) because theÂ Gulliver looks a little silly with a skirtÂ (there’s controversy about using a bumper but Amanda and I both used them and didn’t have any problems so for the forseeable future I am pro-bumper)
Small comforter/coverletÂ in John Robshaw’s Kochi Kashmir, for the first long while she won’t use this because of safety hazards and it will be placed over the end of the crib. Note: You could have the skirt fashioned out ofÂ Kochi KashmirÂ and have an East Village bumper.
Crib sheet-off the shelf, pink polka dots, pinstripeÂ orÂ solid white

Some accessory ideas,
Vintage Bojesen rabbit, the Sunday Times Market
Pear tree, Almost Sunday Designs
the suburbans, Goose Grease
love, this way, Blancucha print
I really likeÂ the idea of the warm brown tones in the giraffe printÂ paired with the light pink. Two elements that I prefer to findÂ in a nursery were included in this design, a commanding piece(s) of artwork and some fun overhead lighting.
Thanks for playing,
And now a quick word from our sponsors!
