I have found Rachel's nursery inspiration

I was in Walmart the other day and as usual, I was drawn to walk through the baby department to see if they had anything new, and sure enough they did.  I have bought a chenille striped blanket for each of my children and wanted to find one for Rachel . . . . . . and this is the adorable blanket that I found along with the receiving blankets and crib sheet.
Then a few days later my Pottery Barn Kids catalog arrived in the mail, and I saw THIS . . . the CoCo Dot Nursery Bedding.  I love that the bumper is very simple and will give me the ability to find additional accent fabrics for the crib skirt, blanket, accent pillow, etc. just by pulling the colors. I am not crazy about the tailored crib skirt and will probably not purchase it, I would prefer a crib skirt that is more full and feminine, I may even add tulle to make it really full and make it look a little like a tutu.
and BOOM it started flowing for me and I started googling and hitting the fabric store for the rest of the room.  I am going to paint the walls Benjamin Moore Robin's Egg Blue.
and I love the rug that is in the PBK room.
and I will purchase the bumper from PBK and the Ivory sailcloth blackout panels, only I will add some trim to the curtains go with the bedding.

These are the other things I found that I thought would work beautifully in the room that I am beginning to see in my minds eye and hopefully SOON within the four walls of Rachel's room.

Cute lamp shade on Etsy, currently they don't have any available but I hope they will soon or I will have to make it myself.
this adorable set of (3) 8 x 10 prints on Etsy
and this one
and this hair bow holder

Finally I stumbled across this room inspiration that also was inspired by the PBK room that I stumbled upon and loved.

Watch for fabric swatches in another post, I am looking for two or three fabrics with the colors but with a soft floral, stripe, and mini print.  I really want to find some fabrics with some texture and maybe even an upholstery fabric to recover the green rocker we already have.  So thrilled that it's starting to come together in my mind, just need it to come together in reality now.
