Eclectic, Feminine, Relaxing - Aqua, Tan, Pinks, White, Yellow - lots of color mixing.
I started the project looking for a stationery crib and fell in love with the two-tone offered through Stanley's Young America line. From there, I decided to make Baby Girl a quilt, and the colors and style came from the collection of fabrics I selected for the quilt.
We wanted something that was feminine, but not too young - fit in with the style of our 1940s Cape Cod and had nice little details. We chose tan walls and went with neutral color furniture, so our pops of color would stand out, but the investment pieces would be neutral enough for future little Parkers.
Having the room feel relaxing and cozy was also really important to us.

Take your time collecting things that mean something. We don't have a lot of things in there, but we love all the pieces we have. AND lastly, decide ahead of time the things you want to spend the money on.
