Need Your Opinions!

Posted in Uncategorized at 7:59 pm by chasingtoddlermom

I need your help!  I want to buy the bedding for the nursery so I can start putting things together.  I feel like I never quite completed Little Ro’s room, so I’m not going to make that mistake twice.  I think I’ve narrowed it down to two options/ themes: sail boats or elephants.  My furniture is white and the room is painted two tones of green.  I’m planning to keep the paint (unless it doesn’t match of course), but I definitely want to keep it some shade of green.

Okay…here are the options:
Elephants – Definitely a baby theme, possibly less toddler-friendly.  The colors of the bedding look distorted online, but it’s actually baby blue and a light sage green (not khaki as it looks).  My main concern is that my glider cushions might not match, but I can always order new (although that will take a bit of convincing with my DH).  Bedding and some prints for the walls: Good Night, I Love My Mama, and Lavender Blue.  I’m absolutely in LOVE with these prints!

Sailboats – More vibrant color and definitely toddler friendly.  But lacks the sweet baby feel of the elephants–particularly where the opportunity for cute prints is concerned.  Sigh.  Another huge plus is that our glider will definitely go.  Here is the bedding and here are some cute prints (some of which you’ve seen already): Sailboats and Whale.

I’m completely torn!  Please help!

    I’m torn! They are both so cute. I think I might go with the sailboats because I like the wall art so much! But honestly…you cannot go wrong with either set. I can’t wait to see it in person.

  2. I’m also torn, but I’m going to go with the sail boats. So dang cute!

    You have two votes for the elephants here. Animals win the hearts of every boy I know; and, with little ro and his dad’s obsession with bugs, frogs, dogs, dinosaurs and anything that makes a big muddy mess, this new little guy’s destined to be one of the boys. Elephants just seem like a perfect fit. And frankly, I have a feeling that a sailboat’s going to be much too boring for him….the only thing that will make him happy on the water will be the Jet Ski 800 SX-R!

    Elephants are SO cute, and they are the symbol of the republican party, so that is a VERY good choice.

    BUT, I LOVE sailing… And I always thought it would be fun to put maps and stuff in child’s room, too.
