You all remember where we left off with the nursery makeover, right? We had a great canvas of chocolate brown walls and white wainscoting to work with.
The biggest undertaking was the bedding, since it really was the true basis for the room decor. We originally found two pieces, this duvet cover from Pottery Barn and this blanket from Serena and Lily, that we fell in love with. They became the inspiration for the entire room. From those pieces, we created the Inspiration Board.
We searched high and low for crib bedding that matched our style, color theme and decor and couldn’t find one set. At least none that fell into our WAY LESS THAN $450 PRICE RANGE. So we took matters into our own hands. We talked with a friend of ours that is a seamstress about making the bedding, and she was on board. Next up on the list, find fabric.
We made sure to order the organic cotton duvet cover, while it was still on sale, to use as material for sheets, and also to bring in other bits of color and design. Like changing out the pink side of Aliyah’s old giraffe pillow, which she was more than happy to donate to the nursery, and making it match the room.
From there we knew it was time to shop. We had a trip scheduled to Los Angeles, and made sure to hit up one of the iconic fabric capitals, Mood. MOOD! Mood?
Project Runway, anyone? Ahem.
Armed with our color palette, we browsed, and browsed, and browsed.
Eventually finding most of what we needed, we proudly made our purchases. We still needed to find ribbon and made the last of our purchases at a local JoAnn Fabrics after our return home. Did we mention we devoted many hours to shopping? Because we did.
I think the end result turned out to be just right, just our style, and just the right price… WAAAAAAAY UNDER $450.
But… wait for it…
One of the best accessories is this adorable matching photo album that we were surprised to receive as a gift that our friend made with the leftover scraps of fabric!
