Nursery Winner

After over 125 votes (WOW!) we have ourselves a nursery winner....

number twenty!!

Thanks to a reader I was able to locate the source. I apologize for not finding it the first time- I swear I tried!  The source is Theophile-Patachou..  If you liked this nursery you'll LOVE their website. 

So, like I promised, I recreated #20 on a budget...

For the chair, the closest thing I could find for less $$ was this one:

Bergere chair 2 Bergere chair 1 
the Louisa chair from Ballard Designs, $599  

 Ikea leksvik chest 
The Leksvik Chest from Ikea is perfect for doubling as a changing table. And for only $249, Iwould paint it *white dove* and change out the hardware with these:

the bedding:

White crib bedding? Easy.. go to Target. Or for a step up:

Pb white sheting
From pbkids white bedding 

Throw blanket overstock

Throw blanket in tan, from Overstock, $25

For the detailed canopy design over the crib... I'm actually going to choose to NOT copy this part. Not because I don't like it (I do) but because this part, on a budget, could get ugly fAST!! For an example of what I'm referring to click here

So I'd go with something similar but much more simple:

Picture 3

Indian Gauze Canopy from World Market, $49.99- I've seen this in person and it's great... very ethereal and not cheap looking!

And for the windows I would mimic the design of this canopy and get basic white drapes, apply grosgrain ribbon to the edges of the panels and make ties at the top as well....

Pb drapes Grosgrain ribbon 

White drapery panels from PB for $69 
Taupe grosgrain ribbon from here, or just about anywhere that sells ribbon. 

the lighting:

Camilla chandelier 

Whimsical chandelier on sale for $129

For the little lamp on the dresser I'd go with one of these 2:

Picture 4

A simple gourd lamp, $79.95

the walls:
When I saw the artwork the first thing that came to mind was: Eddie Ross. Have you read the post about what he did with baby clothes and accessories? Seriously, it's SO cool.

So if you can come up with something sentimental to frame, GO FOR IT. If not, these little prints from Etsy would be pretty cute:

Peace  Dream big  Love makes

 from Barking Bird Art, $18 each

RAM frame 3 pack ikea 

5x7 frames, only $1.99 for a 3-pack! From Ikea, ofcourse. I repeat- One dollar and ninety nine cents!! I'm pretty sure I can't even buy a Gatorade for that much!

Paint them several shades darker than the wall color-

Alexandria bei
I'd go with HC-77 Alexandria Beige 

and wrap my mats in off-white burlap which you can find in pretty much any local fabric store. JoAnns for starters...
