Shopping Guide: Wild Animal Fabrics

The second installment of my fun fabrics series includes these animal prints.  I searched far and wide for the cutest elephants, hippos and giraffe fabrics that would not look cheesy in a modern nursery.  Any one can be used as a source of inspiration.

My Modern Nursery #29: Reader Request

A reader requested some assistance with the decor for her nursery.  She has already picked out Dot Fun crib bedding from DwellStudio for Target and has some dark furniture for the room, so that’s where I started.  First I looked for mobiles, and when I saw the Cyclephants mobile from Flensted (#6), I used it to inspire the rest of the decor choices.  The room uses a lot of primary colors but the green rug tones it down a bit.  There is also a slight circus theme but it is used sparingly just to add a little color and fun.

My Modern Nursery #16: Rich or Reasonable

A while ago I featured Rikshaw Design‘s gorgeous crib bedding sets.  My favorite is the Udaipur set so I’ve used that as the inspiration for this nursery.  I’ve created two versions of this room and I really couldn’t tell you which one I like better.  The first version on the top retails for about $6000, but the one below is less than half the price at $2600.  Either way, the nursery is a warm, bright and gender-neutral space with a hint of exotic flavor.  (I know, I’ve got to move on from the green and orange.  I’ll try.)
