Okay so I know that I said we were doing Sock Monkeys in the nursery but when I got the sock monkey fabric samples in I was a little disappointed in the quality of the fabric so I went on a fabric shopping excursion to see if I couldn’t find some coordinating fabrics that would up the quality level a bit and introduce some new textures to the room. I found a red mircosuede which is quite nice but in the process of looking I also found some blue and brown fabrics that are just awesome! Both sets of fabrics would be easy to care for and both would make great, but very different, rooms. So here is my dilemma; which fabric palette to go with:
The blue and brown fabrics are very modern and rich looking. I like the idea of doing a modern nursery seeing as how everything else in my house is modern. In person the fabrics are absolutely gorgeous. Also blue and brown is a very stylish combo right now so finding accessories would be easy. The down side is that it’s not really “baby” looking.
The Sock Monkey idea is really cute and child like. I like the idea of the Sock monkeys as a throw back to vintage nurseries and it would also be fun to do something that is quite child like because I wouldn’t have the opportunity to do that for very long because kids grow up so fast. The down sides are that the fabrics are “just okay” in person and red, brown, and ivory would be a hard color palette to find accessories for. I’m also having a hard time finding a “vintage looking” crib that I like.
If you would leave your comments and tell me what you think I would really appreciate it. Thanks!!
