With nine weeks to go until the little lady’s arrival and my nesting impulse having officially set in, the pressure is *on* to finish this remodel so the hus-b and I have a proper home to welcome our baby daughter. After a backward step last week (i.e., a hormonal, tear-soaked meltdown at the fabric store), we are making some significant progress on her darling nursery. Restoration Hardware delivered the “Marlowe Panel” crib and “Diamond Matelasse” bedding (fashioned in crisp white which we plan to customize with pink ribbon trim), and our decorator, Lindsay, found the perfect shade of pink paint for the ceiling (Benjamin Moore “Pink Cherub” for you paint connoisseurs). We also *finally* decided on a fabric for the upholstered glider, settling on a luscious, indoor-outdoor, acrylic velvet in “Blanca” from Perennials that Lindsay selected (having used a similar fabric in her own child’s nursery). A white chair in a nursery might seem insane, but indoor-outdoor fabric is brilliantly stain repellent (and in a bit of gross-but-true advice, Lindsay mentioned that milk spit-up is light in color and shows more readily on dark fabrics).
It really is a unique challenge to create a space for someone you’ve never met before, and while we suspect that the little lady will be an easy audience (you know, being a baby and all), we sure hope she loves her sophisticated pink abode as much as we do.
Our apologies to regular subscribers for the errant post earlier. Our first experiment with Polyvore was, ahem, less than seamless.
