Some time ago, for one reason or another, I decided that I wanted to decorate the nursery in shades of aqua and yellow. With some other colors - greens? - thrown in as well.
In terms of fabric and bedding options, this has proved more difficult than I imagined, especially since we're not finding out the sex of the baby. Who knew I would be able to find decent gender neutral options in these colors ...
We plan on painting the nursery some as yet-to-be-determined shade of aqua, with the crib bedding mostly in shades of yellow, with some aqua pulled in for accents.
I have SCOURED the Internet, looking for yellow fabric options - something graphic, but also looking for some other coordinating fabric that maybe had more of a "theme" to it - featuring animals or scenes or SOMETHING.
I've largely been unsuccessful.
I did find this lovely Joel Dewberry fabric - it's a yellow wood grain pattern from his Aviary collection:
So, I wanted to use that as my starting point - especially since it tied in nicely with the faux bois Flor tiles I wanted to use:
Hopefully that's not too much wood grain overload ... Actually, I'm not even going to dwell on that right now. I think the small size of the nursery (9' x 9') will necessitate a small scale rug, so I don't feel like it will be too much.
Anyway! So I contacted a lovely etsy seller who makes crib bedding about that Joel Dewberry fabric and asked if she had any suggestions for coordinating fabrics in yellow and aqua. Here are the "swatches" she sent me - I mainly just wanted to throw these up online so I could have one place to look at them and get an idea of what might work together (click on the images to see a larger, close-up version):
So, what do you think? Anything standing out?
