3rd time’s a charm…


Well, hopefully it is.  I’m back with my 3rd and hopefully final nursery design.  When it comes to designing stuff for myself I’m terribly indecisive.  I think it’s because I’m so overexposed to great design all the time.  As soon as I get something planned for myself, I inevitably find something that I like better.  It’s an awful flaw to have.  Fortunately it’s not one that I have when it comes to designing other people’s homes. 

In case you haven’t been around long let me guide you through my nursery design metamorphosis.  So I started out with this design…

Chase Nursery copy

I really liked it but then after browsing through the Urban Outfitters website I found another fabric that I loved so I changed things up a bit. 

Chase's nursery update2

I really jumped the gun on the redesign.  I definitely should have waited until the fabric actually came in.  Maybe then I wouldn’t have been so disappointed.  Once I started changing the design, the less I liked the original.  And, after searching and searching for a fabric similar to the UO fabric I finally gave up and went a totally different direction. 

So, here’s my 3rd and better be final design for Chase’s nursery. 

Chase copyThis nursery just feels right to me.  I’ve already gotten the Alphabet print in and that’s one of the main reasons that I gravitated towards orange and blue.  There is so much orange in the print and I love it.  I’m planning to do an art grouping above the crib and this will be the main piece.


The Thom Felicia Kravet fabric is a bit out of my budget(even at the wholesale cost) so I’ve ordered swatches for a few less expensive alternatives. 

city sqReally the only major decision that I have left to make is on a glider.  I love this one from Four Seasons Furniture [in a different fabric of course] which can be purchased here, but it’s also out of my price range. 


My budget for a glider is more in the “find it on Craigslist” range.  So, I’ve been checking CL daily for one that I can buy inexpensively and have slipcovered.  So far no luck, but I’m staying optimistic. 

We have yet to move our current guest room furniture out, so it will be quite sometime before I can post progress pictures.  I promise I will post them as soon as I have them though.


  1. The last design is actually my favorite. :) Can't wait to see how it turns out!

  2. Gorgeous! I love everything that you have chosen! The last is my favorite. The orange and blue are great colors.....WAR Eagle!

  3. My favorite piece has been included in every design (the changing table/chest). Also love the orange and blue (helps that I live with a die hard auburn fan). As for the chair, I was sourcing recently for a client and came across some affordable ones online at Lamps Plus (I was a bit shocked). They may not have what you want, but very affordable stuff for what you get. Good Luck. I love seeing the progress! M.

  4. Love the new blue and orange scheme.....perfect for that print which is way too cute.
    I was also thinking of some possible gliders.....I know there are some that are affordable. I'll have to think and e-mail you. Hope all else is well!

  5. Cristi, do you have someone making your mobile for you? I love those birds - got the pattern from a Design Sponge post a long time ago and I LOVE it!

    The orange and blue of Auburn wasn't lost on me. I know you're a fanatic! :)

  6. Cristi - what a small world! That recliner is in the Richloom fabric that I suggested in my comment on your "bummer" post. It's a different color than the one I used, but it's fun. I didn't know that Grandin Road carried items in that fabric. Will have to check it out. Okay, enough blah blah blah. I love the new design!

  7. my favorite is the third one too! I can't wait to start seeing progress!

  8. Your third design in perfect! Good luck on your search for an upholstered glider! Can't wait to see the progress pics!

    Talk soon!

  9. Love all the looks but the 3rd is my favorite...lucky little guy! Glad to have found your lovely blog. I will be back for sure! I am new to blogging and started my own about a month ago..plesae visit me also doing my first giveway..a gorgeous french chair!

  10. Beautiful, Cristi! My brother and sister in law did turquoise and bright orange for their twins nursery. I liked theirs of course but also love your more muted take on it...especially obsessed with that Dhurrie!

  11. Can't wait to see ...know it will be fabulous. Love the blue and orange color scheme.

  12. OK, this is SO weird--I just posted on your Urban Outfitters curtains post-- and NO joke, I have the white background version (the one that you linked to) of the fabric you have on the glider in my fabric stash right now--I'm planning on making pillows out of it. The red version is pretty, but a little bold for what I want--the lighter version is on several pieces of furniture at Pier 1 this season. What a funky coincidence.

  13. I love all of those designs! So happy to have found your blog:)

  14. That nursery is going to be ADORABLE no matter what design plan you go with.

  15. Very nice .
