One Room Challenge: Baby Girl Nursery Week 2

Welcome back for Week 2 of the ORC! I am so pleased because we actually accomplished quite a lot in our first week. {Catch up from Week 1 here} If you followed along last week, you might remember that I was given orders by my doctor to take it easy- more or less modified bed rest, I guess. I was a good girl- I behaved and literally, kept myself put for the past week. So how did anything get done? My parents were in town and helped with the major task of "switching rooms"- moving Weeks into his new room and leaving behind the nursery, and removing all of the old "stuff" out of that room. So, all that hard labor and moving was done by my mostly my sweet Mom..thank you again, Mom! I didn't photograph the actual process, but we are left with a blank slate in the nursery to make room for baby girl!

Here is a sneak at what I've been planning for her room, after seeing it start to come together I am calling it Sweet and Chic.

Starting with a fun note, I ordered this t-tiny bamboo brass tray on eBay last week. It's a little smaller than I pictured but actually, pretty perfect for a baby girl's room! The bunny you see behind the tray is actually a bookend I received at my baby shower this past weekend. I wish I could source but it is simply stamped "italy"...they are gorgeous. 

I installed the new knobs on the dresser- aren't these are fun? Little upside down pineapples!

I couldn't wait to hang a sweet new dress from the shower as well. 

So this is a major decision to make and I need to do it asap! This is the sample of the wallpaper I have selected. It reads like a dark blush on a slightly ivory background. I was thinking about using it just on the crib wall. The other walls will be ivory to match the paper background.
 What are your thoughts? 

Here you can see it paired with a soft pink.

I guess my only concern is the pink in the wallpaper not being a true pink. As I further design the room, will I run into the problem of pinks not matching up? Or does it work well this way? I actually like the image above of the blanket paired with the wallpaper. And, I don't plan on adding a ton of pink- but some is inevitable!

Other miscellaneous items that were done...Stephen took down all the art, window hardware and shelving and the holes are patched. The walls are ready for paint! We also moved in the vanity and a bench. Nothing is too final yet but I hope to have things in place and show where things are situated in the nursery next week!

Yes! Do the wallpaper!! It's gorgeous and will add a to of interest and texture to the room without having to do so much "stuff". We were out of town so I didn't accomplish anything on our nursery this week. :(

I love that wallpaper. Personally, I like the fact that the pink colors don't match up.

I love the little glimpses you've shared, especially that bunny bookend! I say go for the wallpaper! I think having several different shades of pink in the room will be lovely!
