Little Ladybug

I have a gorgeous 7 month old niece - Gabriella!  She is the youngest of 4 kids with 3 older brothers.  Needless to say she was the long awaited touch of pink that this family needed.  She had been sharing a room with her parents till today.  After a little magical room switch - baby girl or as we call her "ladybug" has her own room.

Now that she has her own room and her parents can actually sleep at night with out a little one a couple feet away, they are ready to decorate a room for their ladybug. This is my sister-in-laws chance to have some pink in her all blue boy house.  Right now it is basic cream walls and a wood crib.  Of course, we are going to do this girls nursery on a budget. Here are our thoughts:
Tiffany Blue Walls (what girl doesn't love something from Tiffany's so why not start her off on the right foot)
White crown molding
Paint crib white
Yellow accents - maybe a yellow chair or dresser
Fuschia pink and white bedding
And of course a chandelier of some sorts =)  It wouldn't be a Tiffany inspired room with out a chandelier.

I think we will stalk some fabric sales and buy our own fabric then have a friend sew the bedding = BIG savings there. After looking online, we can only find bedding that we liked in the $400-700 range. Well that's not happening.  If our bedding doesn't cost that much then little ladybug will get her's on a budget as well.

The project has just begun and there is no progress to share with you except our ideas at this point.  But I will leave you with some great inspiration photos as always and I will be sure to keep you up to date on this new project =)

Love the mix of fabrics and styles!  Adore this room.  Not a thing I would change except maybe the letter "V" since my child will not be having a "V" name but can't share with you what future names we love because they are so great that you might want to steal them!!! hehe

This room had me at "yellow stripes" and vintage recovered orange chair!   Sit windows are also one of my favorites.  The house I lived in as a child in upstate NY had a sit window - I would love sitting there watching everyone outside.

The mix of textures, fabric and colors are amazing.  I love different patterns and this room has it all.
