Our little girl was born 11 weeks early. We didn't have our nursery done when she arrived, just the crib. We wanted something bright, and we got it! It turned out great. We were bold and painted all the walls turquoise. I love red and thought it would be the perfect accent color. It was so much fun to put together. My husband then painted a canvas for Charlee above her bed. the C is for Charlee and Colorado. In the end, everything came together and we love her space.
I did a lot of searching online and just pulled things from everywhere. The went to the fabric store and spent hours deciding what to use. The fabric is what ultimately determined our style.

The bedding is my favorite. It pulled everything together and I just love it.
Go with your heart. It is worth taking your time and really figuring out what you want. I also recommend spending a little extra on the furniture, it is something that will last a lifetime.
