It’s going to be a while before I can share the complete new look because the room is currently occupied by its first tenant.
I would still like to use orange in the new nursery, but I love orange paired with chartreuse/green, and I had wanted to use those colors together all along. I was just waiting to find the right fabrics to really finalize the design, and I think I’ve finally found them. Hooray!
The tree print (Modern Meadow Grass Majestic Oak JD38) will be for curtains, and the herringbone (Modern Meadow Grass Grass Herringbone JD36) is for a crib skirt. Both fabrics are from Joel Dewberry’s latest line for Freespirit.
If you google the full fabric names you should be able to find it in stock somewhere. I ordered mine here.
I’ve chosen orange for the new nursery. It’s such a fun, poppy color, and it could easily work for either gender (we’re having a boy!). Once you veer from pastels though, it’s hard to find essentials for the nursery like bedding and changing pads. Here are a few of the things I’m considering for the room:
Our Jenny Lind crib is part of the massive recall in drop side cribs. I know many of you have the same one, so I wanted to bring it to your attention in case you hadn’t heard already. Free repair kits are available from Da Vinci / Million Dollar Baby.
We stopped using the drop side a long time ago, when the first recalls were announced (under different brands and styles). We also turned the crib around so that that side would be against the wall. Our crib is still sturdy, but we’re glad our repair kit will be arriving soon.
