This weekend we went to Cayucos with Phil's family for Thanksgiving and had a great time. While we were in the area, I had to stop by Cotton Ball and look at all their gorgeous fabric. I of course found some fabrics that I adore and have been inspired... to have a girl so I can decorate a girl's bedroom. I feel guilty in case I am not having a girl, but I must share my inspiration because it is so darn cute!

This is my first inspiration piece. It is called "Starling" by Alexander Henry. I love it beyond words. I think there are so many cute things I could do with this fabric.

This second inspiration came to me in today's new Anthropolgie catalog. I saw the painted walls titled, "Drawn Home," and knew this is what the walls should look like to accompany this gorgeous fabric. I could duplicate the black and white drawing on the fabric and paint it on the walls. Then using felt, I could make large versions of the birds and hang them up in the room. The crib and the dresser would need to be painted black to make the room perfect. And I was planning an easy transformation of linens if I had a girl.... Phil will kill me.

  2. I love the fabric and the ideas you have for the room. Let's hope for a girl! Otherwise I may have to buy the fabric off you for when Breanna has a big girl room!
