Nursery Diary #2- Linens and Details

LINENS & Things! Finally...
My sister, Mandy, and I spent a whole day searching the beach for the perfect linens. We found them and I STILL absolutely love/adore them. Here (again) is a picture of the before nursery:

Doot,da,da, Doooo ...

Here's my baby boy COLOR Palette!

Let me explain:

The pattern on the fabric is very cool. I going for a coastal/shabby/comfy feel in the nursery.
I'm on the hunt for a cushy cream rug with lots of texture. Stay tuned!
I've also purchased a few things:
This creamy blue chest will serve as the rocking chair side table and extra storage.
I'm thinking of putting little tulip feet on it. I told you that I have a thing for chunky-furniture-legs and cool feet.
I also purchases this Beautiful bassinet. It's going to go next to our bed while he's teeny tiny. I think I found a mattress to fit from Wal-mart and I registered for a cute green and white sheet set at Baby's-R-Us.
This bassinet and the sideboard changing table are 2 of my favorite nursery purchases!!!!

Mandy and I picked up this awesome framed bunny picture at TJMAXX.
Right now it's hanging above the changing table.
I tend to like more nautical looking pics, but I refuse to do a "theme" in the baby room.
My style is coastal and shabby... it's where starfish and bunnies can live in the same decor family. (Hope, that's for you!)

Dennis is making this little fish mobile to entertain our little guy.
I found this picture in the Serena and Lily nursery book- I suggest it for anyone in nursery decorating mode.

In other news, I want to talk about my Friends and Family! When I say I have awesome people surrounding us, I mean it!

Check out this closet:

I think I've purchased, maybe, 5% of the things in this closet.

Two of my dearest girlfriends + my sisters, have beefed-up my maternity clothes collection like you wouldn't believe. I feel Prettier and more Stylish than ever thanks to them.


Then there are the baby clothes.

You can see I have 2 bins of clothes up top and half of the closet full of sweet little boutique clothes. He will most definitely be well-dressed!

And, finally, the crib:

My sweet Aunt Judy and Uncle Bobby gave us this awesome Pottery Barn crib. My litte cousin, Rosie, used it first and now our sweet little guy gets to cuddle up in it. I love that it's been used before! Plus, if I were to have my pick on the PB website- I would have totally picked this one. Pretty cool!

WOW. I love all the planning you're doing; you have everything figured out to a 'T'.
And I love the crib; it's perfect!

I'm so happy for you! Can't wait to see you and everything else in person in May!
