Nursery Design Plan : Red and Brown Nursery for a girl

I'm not a big fan of girlie girl nurseries. I figure as soon as our little one hits age 5 we'll be redecorating everything with pink and purple so why not do something that goes with our home's decor until sparkles and Dora dolls become top priority.

So, take a look at the design board I've put together for a baby girl.

  • The lamp consists of the Red Greta Candle Accent Lamp Base and the Red Stripes and Pom Pom lamp shade from World Market.  I really disliked the black pom pom trim that was on the shade when I bought it, and luckily for me, the glue used on it allowed me to peel it right off.  The trim is now in my trim basket awaiting another life.
  • The Family Rules poster came from Etsy, which I frequent just to get good ideas. The gentleman that makes these posters will make them with custom background colors for a small additional charge.
  • I loved the Davinci Emily 4-in-1 Convertible Crib, and lucky for me it scored high on Consumer Reports, so win-win. It's available online and at local boutique stores in my area (sorry, I couldn't find it at the chain stores).
  • I found the red cotton India Rug online at Rosenberry Rooms.  I wanted something that could easily be washed. I'm not a fan of sick kids and loose pile carpet.
  • Everything else in this nursery I found around and about. Fabrics all came from JoAnn's and a local drapery store. Paint colors from Home Depot. And for a personal touch I spelled out the little one's name on the wall above her crib using creme-colored capital letters from Pottery Barn Kids, hung with red ribbons.
Any ideas or suggestions?
