Room Rx: A Sweet Girl's Nursery - progress

Time for an up date! This sweet girl's nursery  for my cousin Jesse's baby is moving along. I have so much to share, but I am afraid I have been withholding from you, so let me get you up to speed...

This is a nursery done on a budget, purchasing only what is needed and using many items already owned. Here is where the room started... freshly painted floors (carpet torn up revealing hardwood in not the best condition, so painting was the perfect solution).

The inspiration for the room, a rug from another room:

We found this fabric, which matches perfectly...

BTW, this is what it looks like on the computer screen..... just sayin'!  As I mentioned on FFF, you can't always be sure of the color accuracy on screen so it's usually best to select fabrics in person.....

and this fabric for a touch of whimsy...

Instead of purchasing a new chair, this comfy number will reside in the nursery...

Our Grandma's lamp is joining the party, the blue is a perfect match to the rug....

So how will it all come together you ask? 
A sweet girl's nursery


This will be a girly girl's room, sweet, lacy and lovely. The pink on the walls is just a whisper of color, same with the blue on the ceiling. A friend is building a bookcase between the windows which will also serve as a radiator cover. A collection of milk glass will grace it's shelves, nestled among books and toys. 
Jesse is working diligently on a ton of DIY projects so stay tuned as I'll be sharing those. Wait until you see what she has done to transform this piece......

 I hope you will bear with me this week, my posting will be a bit light as I am trying to focus on my "to do" list which includes all of the last minute stuff for sending my oldest off to his semester at Conserve School. I can't believe he leaves this Saturday....!

Does your room need a “prescription” for a change of decor, function or design If so please contact me, I would love to help your room feel better with a Design Concept Board or a complete Room Rx.

I'm head over heels for this plan!!! The fabrics are perfect and I love that Jessie is using the comfy chair as we all know comfort is key! I can't wait to see this come together. Thanks for sharing Cathy as I'm sure you're busy busy over there trying to get your son ready.

I love how you pulled the colors from the inspiration rug and matched it so well with the striped fabric and the adorable bird print. I can't wait to see how the finished room turns out!

It's going to be beautiful with that rug on the painted floors! Wonderful job adding a fresh feel to items they own!

I'm sure getting your son off on his new adventure will be bittersweet!

This is going to be good!! Did you tell us where you got that rug? Before the "other room". Hope your son likes his new adventure.

I have said before how much I love that rug - it will make the room and tie-in all the colors beautifully. I cannot wait to see the "new" piece of furniture.
