Neutral Nursery Sneak Peek!

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend!  We were finally all well enough to make it to church for the first time in forever, and we were able to enjoy lots of family time over the weekend.

Baby girl's neutral nursery is just about complete, with 2 weeks to spare!  I picked up the crib skirt late last week.  I used Jonathan Adler's "Electrify" in Alloy for the crib skirt- it is a large scale abstract diamond pattern that incorporates white, tan, and gray, so it's warm and cool at the same time, just like the Revere Pewter on the nursery walls.

We did a simple box pleat and made sure the skirt touches the floor (that is my complaint with most pre-made crib skirts- they are too short).  I will have it hemmed shorter as I lower the mattress when baby girl gets bigger.

I am using the $99 Jenny Lind crib from Wal Mart.  I can never justify spending a lot of money on a crib that is used for such a short period of time.  I like the simple, clean lines, and it isn't too huge like some cribs that would overwhelm the rooms of our house.

Admittedly, the color scheme and fabric choices for this nursery are not girlie, but stay tuned and I will show you details in which I make it baby-girl-appropriate!

I love it! and you are so right why are premade crib skirts so short! Love the bedding and agree about spending alot on cribs. You can find such good ones for cheap now!

Such smart and chic choices. I'm working with a client on a gender neutral nursery, with lots of gray and small pools of color. Hope you're feeling well!

How exciting! I'm so glad all of you are well. That is the best advice about not spending a lot on a crib. I spent way tooo muuuccchh...and then gave it to someone, can't remember who. I hope your weeks go by smoothly, Sarah.

Girl this looks great. And trust me, you will have a pink overload once that sweet girl gets here. I think you're really smart to start with something more neutral. This looks so pretty. I did a walmart crib for Tagg from the modline and I swear it's better quality than the pricey crib we bought for Wells.
