I posted a sneak peek of some fabrics I'm considering on Instagram today (@alizadventures) but the hunt is not yet over. I want this room for our little mamacita to be pretty and feminine, but also sophisticated and not very "babyish."
I've always had a good experience ordering fabric from fabric.com, plus you can go through Ebates -- big plus there. They currently offer 4% back on your purchase. That can really add up! Plus, fabric.com has a "design wall" that you can virtually add fabric swatches too to see how they pair up together. How easy. Not a sponsored opinion at all, by the way -- just my own personal experience!
One option that I'm really liking is this one:
There are also some great emerald green fabrics out there, too, that I can use for accents.
I will also be incorporating a good dose of black and white in the nursery, because -- well, babies' eyes love black and white! Rather than a stark white, the combo I'm looking for is a little more of a black/off white. Nothing too ecru or ivory though. Can you tell I have a definite vision?
Once I have the fabrics finalized, we will be painting the room and adding in all of the fun baby items we have accumulated or have our eyes on. The crib will be ordered today and I'm picking up some new lighting for the room this afternoon as well.
Here's another photo I found online of a similar color scheme that I'm going for.
I'm just slightly giddy over this color combination!
Phew -- progress feels good.
So there's a little idea of the direction we will be taking the nursery in. If you have any ideas for the room, I'd love to hear them!
