A whimsical, traditional, eclectic nursery for our twin baby girls. Main colors: Robin's egg blue, coral and yellow. I had a lot of trouble uploading pictures, so if you want to see more please visit my blog: http://twoscoopsforme.blogspot.com/2011/07/two-cribs-exactly-milly-clarabelles.html
I started out with the colors I wanted to use most- coral and Robin's egg blue. I love big prints, so that was what I chose next.
I wanted it to be whimsical, sweet and a little eclectic.
I bought pre-made black out panels for the drapes and sewed the fabric to the front. This made it much less time consuming and less expensive. They were $15 at Wal-Mart.
I started by making the cornice board above the window and the drapes. The rest became my 'bed rest projects'. My Mom and I completed all of the bedding while I was confined to the couch (I had nothing but time!). After we finished this I decided I needed some artwork, so using fabric remnants I created the bird pictures and the mobiles. The pictures actually tell a story of a mommy and daddy bird having two baby birds (hehe!). There's a burlap nest involved-might be my favorite part.
Pick the colors and patterns you love first then let the room come together around them.
