I told you it was 'play it safe!'
But I want to do something a little different with this nursery, so I went on Polyvore.com & started randomly throwing together things I liked. Whatever color or product struck my fancy, I threw it on the palette to sort through later. In the end, I came up with this.
And no, I don't have any clue if it's a boy or a girl yet. :)
I will tell you that when I finished this little project, I fell in love. I love the colors, the simplicity of the designs... everything about it!
Then I showed it to Josh. Heh-- his reaction was priceless.
Josh: Well, I liked the other ideas we had better... we were talking about a more modern style & this is kind of... eclectic.
Me: *silence* Did you see the lyrics?
Josh: *walking back towards the computer* No... what are they?
Me: Cat Stevens!
Josh: Honestly, I like it a lot better now. Let's do it.
So we might-- I really dig this style and I'd love to pull our house into a mixture of modern & eclectic-- and I think this is a great mixture of those two! We also want to incorporate music into the nursery, and I love those lyrics! I tried other ways to incorporate music, but sticking music notes on the wall just doesn't suit my fancy & I can't seem to find anything I like other than this! It just seems perfect.
