If it's a GIRL....

Two weeks to go...and counting.. As some of you may know, I don't know if I'm having a boy or a girl. So I haven't even started the nursery {I know that's hard to believe seeing I'm a designer right?}. I have though of course compiled my ideas...Here are my schematics for a baby girl. I'm using the crib and changer I used with my son. They are white and have pretty clean lines.

Next week I'll share the "If it's a boy concept".

My inspiration was actually the fabric below and a German deer I found back in the Fall. The fabric reminded me of an enchanted forest, but didn't come in the correct colors. I love idea of incorporating wildlife {hence the deer and rabbit} and natural elements with a hint of glamour!

Cowtan and Tout - Savoy

{The room's official mascot - if it's a girl that is}

The window treatments will be pretty straight forward..I'm thinking of using a pelmet with a roman shade tucked underneath!

I also love this print..I've seen it used before {I think Erika from Urban Grace may have used it in her girl's precious nursery} in any case. ..It's great, so it may find it's way into the room.

I'm not sure if Erika used this print, but I know that I learned of it from her fabulous blog. It's available through Etsy - Bibity

What great ideas! Love the pink deer "mascot"!

Hi! I love your blog! The woodland fabric you showed here, which didn't come in the color you were looking for, reminds me of Anna Maria Horner's Forest Hills from the Little Folks collection. The "berry", "sweet", and "sea" colors might suit a girl.

My cousin and I just started our own blog. We'd love it if you'd check us out at

Good luck!

I want to live in your little girl's room! Looks like it would be beautiful. Do you know where to find that french ABC print? I could not find it on urban grace. Thank you!

Acanthus and Acorn said...

These are all beautiful selections. But I too adore the first fabric...who makes it? Maybe, you could find a way incorporate a little enchanted forest, even if it's just a pillow!

The first fabric listed in Cowtan and Tout - Savoy.

The print is from Bibity on Etsy.

Thanks for all your comments.

Love your inspiration. I'm due in May and I'm not finding out... I've decided on a pale aqua w/ some gray for my scheme. But that's all I've thought about so far!

Ivy Lane said...

All such wonderful choices and everything goes together so nicely! If it is a girl, she's gonna be one lucky little lady!!! I like the "mascot"!

LindsB said...

What a beautiful room your little girl is going to have...well thats if it is a girl. I cant wait to see the boy option and also find out what you are having!

Cyma said...

Oh wow it will look amazing.
I love your blog :)

It looks so lovely and that deer is great! Every little girl needs something pink and sparkly in her room. Cheeky Monkey Murals is great too for murals and little paintings. Congratulations!

I am not a wall paper girl, but I love Savoy from C&T.
Great idea - Good Luck - this is such an exciting time for you!!

Thanks for all your well wishes.
I'm only using the hexagon wallpaper in small doses. I believe the savoy print is a fabric.
