1. Tissue pom-poms or similarly colored globe lights.
2. Nurseryworks Storytime Rocker, my biggest “splurge” want.
3. I love the Jellycat stuffed animals, especially the corduroy ones, Cordy Roy Cat, $22.50, amazon.com

. From L to R: Bliss by Valeri Wells Lions in Tangerine, Jennifer Paganelli Pretty Please, Paula Prass for Michael Miller Pink Chevron, Sandi Henderson for Michael Miller Splashy Rose in Persimmon.
5. Espresso tone crib, Child-Craft Brook Bridge crib, $129,99, target.com
6. Refurbished dresser with clean lines. I’m hoping to score something on Craiglist for cheap and refinish either in a fun color or stained to match the crib (also to be accomplished via the YHL tutorial.
7. Paper mobile. I plan on making this as well, out of colorful cardstock or maybe pom-poms or silk flowers or something. I like the modern style of this one.
8. Dark woven baskets for extra storage
9. Cute prints like this one in a art wall collage with baby pictures of Phil and I.
10. More fun fabrics, possibly used to cover awesome alphabet letters as below. From L to R: Anna Maria Horner Good Folks Cathedrals in Peony Pink, Bliss by Valori Wells Tangerine Medallions, Robert Kaufman Metro Living Circles in Fuschia, Liz Scott for Moda Raindrop in Brown Orange.
I really like this alphabet, the way the letters are all different shapes, colors, etc. I think it could work great in either a boy or girl nursery.
Fabric on needlework circles would be an easy, fun way to add pattern or color to a room, especially if we’re renting.
Another easy way to add color, fun, and whimsy as a renter.
