Noodling around the nursery ...

With the arrival of a newborn in our family this summer, my daughter (and mother-to-be) has begun to focus on nesting. She's been drawn to several color schemes, and I've had the joy of visiting lots of websites and print magazines to acquire inspirational photos to share with her.

A couple of weeks ago I posted a blush color palette for the baby's room.  This week, shades of turquoise, green and pink are moving closer to the top of the nursery decor list.

Images 1-3 are Carousel Designs found at Baby; 4. Behr Paints in (l-r) Island Oasis, Hidden Meadow and Island Coral; 5. Striped rug from Pier 1; 6. Jenn Feldman Designs; 7. Trenna Travis Design Studio; 8. Wood block letters from La Petite Peach; 9. Newborn photography by Kellie Carter; 10. Paisley crib sheet from Target.

I admit I'm drawn to the baby elements in the rooms above, but my expectant daughter envisions a decor scheme that will translate well over time. Smart move.

Fabric designs by the French fabric house of Manual Canovas, available through Cowtan.

Did I mention that we're both scouring the internet for gender-neutral nurseries. Even though this little bundle of joy is a girl, I am approaching this creative output like I would for any client ... offering the best of what may fulfill my daughter and son-in-law's vision.

But, this grandmother is over the moon with thoughts of pretty bows and booties to come.

I'll just make sure they are in complimentary shades!

Of course, next week may bring an entirely new color palette. The paint purchase is yet to come.

NOTE: If you're planning a crib with a bumper pad, it's important to be aware of the new guidelines released by the American Academy of Pediatrics which state, "Bumper pads should never be used in infants' cribs." This recommendation was issued as part of an updated and expanded set of guidelines on safe sleep and SIDS prevention for babies. To read more, click here.
