What's new, pussycat?

Whew, it's been a while since I've much is going on!

My mom just left after spending a long weekend with me and I took today off to get some "me time." I loved having her here, I can honestly say that my mom is my one of my best friends. I hope my future daughter (!!!) and I are that close some day.

Speaking of the future daughter, I have been very anxious to start decorating the nursery but we are having guests throughout the month of March so I don't want to start buying furniture until I can move the current furnishings out. So, instead of doing that I decided to just decide on a color scheme and get some general ideas down.

I am following my previous post fairly closely, I think. I don't want anything too cutesy and I really don't want an explosion of pink. So I picked out some fabrics at Crafty Planet this weekend. Love that store! We are keeping the walls the current silvery-blue color, because it is so calm and pretty and I really don't prescribe to the girls=pink, boys=blue line of thought.

This is what I chose for the window treatments.

And I'm debating between these two for the crib skirt. I found a super easy tutorial online.

All of the fabrics are Ty Pennington, and I love the poppy/persimmon/orangey-red color so much! I think the crib and other furniture will be white and it should be a nice, serene room - not too cluttered and will fit with the rest of our house, style-wise. We are definitely trying to stay on the "less is more" road when it comes to baby. Any thoughts or suggestions are greatly appreciated.
