Mood Board Monday: Rocking the Casbah

Back in November I participated in a Mood Board Monday  link party hosted by Sarah at
Pewter + Sage.  I explained the concept and shared my own mood board submission here.
Today, Sarah is back with a new challenge, to build a nursery or child's room around one of two convertible cribs by Bonavita.  
 Bonavita Peyton Crib
My choice?  A nursery using the Peyton crib, which I felt was a piece of furniture that could work long term for either a boy or a girl.  My inspiration for the room?  I have been smitten of late by many of the block printed fabrics on the market, but particularly of the darling patterns from Rickshaw Design, so I thought this would be a great opportunity to work with them.

Rickshaw Design

I loved the look of this buffet as it is not only colorful, but incorporates some of the hand carved blocks used in the block printing process. What a great investment piece, topped with a changing pad, it could be used initially as a changing table and later in a more grown up way, for storage, perhaps in the same child's room or in any other room.
High Fashion Home 

My "Rocking the Casbah" vision includes turquoise walls with one wall stenciled using this pattern...
Cutting Edge Stencils 
Lots of neutral and white help to balance the deep walls, dark woods and bright accessories.  Window treatments  could be sewn from paisley sheets coordinating with the crib bedding and of course you can't have linens with elephants and not give a nod to jungle animals so, here is my mood board, enjoy!

Does your room need a “prescription” for a change of decor, function or design? If so please contact me,
I would love to help!

Oh I love your design. I, too, love the Rickshaw textiles. I love how you selected pieces that will grow with the child....so stylish. (PS--I couldn't use the linky either).

Wow, Cathy!!! This is amazing!!! I am so loving it! I love anything block printed...I have a good friend from India who brings me pillows and such every time she goes back home!

I just emailed you, I am so sorry about the confusion with the link up. I just totally messed up the closed date, but I've fixed it now, so you should be able to link up. I feel like suck an idiot!!!! Thank you so much for taking the time to do this, I was worried no one was going to join the party!

I love how this room doesn't feel typically babyish. You've chosen great versatile pieces that will work for many years to come. Love all the bright color, especially that idea for the accent wall of stencil pattern. Loving that teal chair, the touch of animals and that buffet/changing table. This is a beautiful room!
