Nora's Nursery Inspirations

If you know me or have observed 90% of my clothing, you know that my favorite color is white. And maybe gray too. Basically a bunch of non-color. Although super neutral nurseries are really pretty, they aren't the most stimulating to little brains. Color is good for babies! I knew I had to branch out. Laurel introduced me to the blog 100layercakelet where I found my starting point!

I also loved the idea of Hexagons or a honeycomb pattern after seeing this:

Then I started finding goodies that were unattainable for $$ reasons mostly. But OH SO LOVELY. 
Like this dwell studio crib sheet. But $40 for a sheet that will get spit up on and worse??


And this mural is SOOO pretty and colorful and fits my color scheme and then some but $548. 
Da what?!


So I decided on these fabrics after TONs of searching. Spoonflower should have been my first stop for sure. Also used Fabric.com And what for? A crib skirt and a hexagon baby quilt that my mom made/will make. 

Here's a hexa quilt. NOTE: I am linking for picture credit alone. DO NOT BUY this pattern. Its absolute crap.

If you are interested in making this quilt, there are some quality you tube videos that are much better. Like this one and this one.

And here are just some other ideas/finds/good things:

* Love all these quilts!
* Great idea for diaper/ diapering items storage with easy access.

* Mobile. Bought the DIY kit to save $50. I made it but it might be worth it to pay $50 to have someone make it for you. Seriously.

* Picture wall!

So far I have this print up and framed. Love so many prints from this etsy shop: kariherer


Will be adding these plates, (that spell "nora") a baby gift from Kendall


This print and others!



Hope to have it all done soon so I can show you the finished room!
