I've been hard at work on the nursery. Or rather I've had a lot of help! I'm still waiting on the linens to be finished but all the big pieces are in place. It is a tiny little room (it is Japan) so it feels cozy. I'm trying to keep the feeling light and open with warm white walls and linens with pale blues. So my latest question about a child's room is this - do I really need a mobile? I've tried this and it just didn't look right:
Next, I thought this was going to be perfect but instead the lighter parts turned out to be a dark tea stained brown, not a soft white or cream. And the blue too bold of a royal blue, not at all soft. It felt too dark for the room, but of course I've second guessed that decision a million times. (I've lost it, surely.)
Another option I'm thinking of trying.
Or perhaps craft something of sola wood flowers?
Maybe this airplane mobile is just too masculine? I am having a little girl (did I mention that?) and her room is already blue.
Or what about this like over at Jones Design Co?
But at the end of the day, I am starting to feel like these might be clutter in an already small room. Ceiling clutter. Or maybe that's me throwing in the towel. What do you think?
And for the non-baby set I'm attending a bazaar of antiques and furnishings this weekend. I'll post pics of the good stuff! I'm on the look out for some nice Imari pieces!
