Small Fry(day) – Crib bumper alternative

I am currently working with someone on a nursery for her precious little girl that is on the way.  We have already painted the walls a beautiful pale pink, and will be using her existing crib, changing table, and glider.  Our primary focus has been crib bedding, window treatments, and accessories.  She prefers not to use a traditional crib bumper, but I still wanted to add some visual interest to the crib bedding.  To solve this, we are having a crib sheet fabricated from two different patterned sheets and then piped in a solid. OB-bedding

The top portion of the sheet will be the small geometric pattern, piped by the solid pink, and boxed in the dragonfly petal fabric.  I think this is a wonderful alternative if you should choose not to use a bumper.  I cannot wait to see how it turns out!  Nor can I wait to meet the sweet  bundle of joy!

Are you planning a nursery?  Want to keep the conversation going?  Please email Lisa at btbaby@beverlytaylordesign.com.

Last night, Beverly Taylor Design attended a great event hosted by Redress Raleigh. This event, named “contact and connect,” was a great opportunity for creative professionals to network. 

At this event we learned more about the great movement called Redress Raleigh. Redress Raleigh aims to reorient mainstream fashion to be socially and environmentally aware, becoming a catalyst for major change in the retail industry. Being eco-friendly is very important to us not only within interior design, but also in everything else we do, which is why we love this movement. Check out their website to learn more and be sure to keep a lookout for their next fashion show! (We heard the last one was amazing!)
Ashton Burnette from Redress Raleigh and I at the event. Ashton is a media, marketing & event manager for Redress Raleigh. She did a great job putting together this event! Click on the picture to learn more about her. 


XOXO,
