Annie's room is soft and comforting without the use of traditional baby fabrics. The Jacobean bumper fabric is given a youthful feel when combined with the pink and green polka dot and the pink buffalo check. Her soft chenille rug brings in a touch of yellow.
My inspiration came from a green leopard print fabric that I have been holding onto for about 8 years; it trims the bumpers and is in the quilt. I knew that I would one day have the right room to fit the fabric. Green and pink ending up being a pretty color palette for Annie's room.
I love combining new and old.
Annie's crib is the only piece of furniture that has not been handed down. The yellow cabinet was originally used as a t.v. cabinet (made by Annie's Nana), but I thought it was perfectly sized to house her many pint sized clothes. Annie's bedding and curtain was made by her Nana. The chenille rug was a great find at Home Goods (my favorite store). Annie's crib is made by Graco.
My favorite item, other than her beautiful bedding, would have to be the white rabbit with the tissue paper collar and her wind chimes; they both add a touch of whimsy.
I would suggest searching high and low for fabrics that were just right for the look I was trying to achieve. I had so much fun piecing together the fabrics for her room. There are SO many options when you do custom bedding. Always check out Home Goods for room accents; I have such great luck there.
