So...instead we are going to use this rug from my current home office space as the BIG pattern for CAS's room...and the best part is that the furniture and fabrics we selected to accent the Giraffe fabric will still work!
I have always loved this rug, the pretty blue birds among pink flowers and greenery.
Here is a reminder of the other pieces and colors...
The bookcase at the end of the upstairs hall is going to be painted red to match the dresser you see here...and those will go in her room. The dresser will double as a changing table. The changing pad is a butter yellow.
The crib is this pretty model from Pottery Barn
Kids. I love the clean simple lines of it. I also love how the chocolate wood will look with the red dresser.
Then we went with this simple blue chambray bed skirt...and a bumper of the same color. Those will actually look really pretty with the blue birds in the rug.
Finally the last big piece of furniture is the glider. Again another piece from Pottery Barn Kids. We went with the butter yellow...and got the ottoman in the same color. I think they will look really pretty with the rug.
I also recently fell in love with this canopy from Ikea...it would not have worked with the Giraffe room...but now that it is something different...I think it could work...no?? Here is a picture of it on its own, and a picture of it in use over a crib...
Now, all we need to do is pick curtains for the space. I think its going to still be a very sweet and unique space for our little girl.
Happy to hear your thoughts...
