Thank you so much for all the decorating suggestions you've given me for Little Pea's new room. Once I got over the shock of my own change of mind, I started to get excited about the second chance for decorating a nursery. I let things soak in over the weekend and now I'm pretty thrilled with the direction the room is going to go.
First off was choosing the paint color since Handyman Tim and my dad will be needing the paint hopefully sooner rather than later. There is a lot of pink and spring green going on in the bedding and decorations and that is one of my favorite color combos. But to change things up a bit, I think we are going to go with:
A robin's egg blue. Maybe you want to call this Tiffany's blue. Or Martha Stewart blue. Any way you want to call it, I've started noticing this paired with pink and green everywhere I look and I love how fresh it feels. I haven't picked the exact paint chip yet, but this one is Jamaica Bay by Behr Paint for Home Depot.
It may seem a little shocking if you're looking at the photos I posted last week, but this same color does appear in tiny bits in the sheet set that goes with her bedding:
I confess the true inspiration for this color choice comes from one of the sweetest pieces of art I've seen in a long long time:
I have totally fallen in love with these cherry blossom birdies. I love the combination of colors, I love the birdie theme, I love the pink cherry blossoms. I seriously can't think of anything cuter for a baby girl's room.
I first spotted this in the Pottery Barn Kids catalog which just so happened to mention the artists' names: Megan and Mendy Winborg. I searched for more information about them online and discovered they have an awesome Etsy store:
I love love love their whimsical collage style!! Check out some of these other fantastic pieces from their shop, I just have to share:

There are literally dozens more gorgeous pieces over in their Etsy shop. Sadly, pretty much all of them are out of our budget right now. It just did my heart good to see such happy artwork for children's rooms and I'm so grateful for the burst of inspiration the cherry blossoms gave me.
