Fresh + Fun Nursery Design

Happy Thursday! I am thrilled to be designing another nursery, this time with a very different, yet equally beautiful, aesthetic from #southhamptonnursery.  My latest client has hired me to help create a space for her baby boy that includes touches of bold color and pattern.  After our initial consultation and learning more about what she is naturally drawn to, I started working on my design plan.  While I was brainstorming fabrics, I kept coming back to Quadrille's zig zag for it's fun and youthful feel:

In fact, I would be hard-pressed to find a Quadrille textile that wouldn't look good in a nursery or child's room...

One of the elements the client wants to include in the nursery is a twin bed for her son to grow in to.  Right now, she just has the bed frame, so we need a headboard.  I love the handsome feel of a navy tufted headboard:

For my design board, I included Rose Cummings' zebra wallpaper as a possibility for wallpapering the ceiling or walls in.  The navy combined with the light blue and chartreuse in the Biscuit "Pete" bedding she already purchased seemed like a beautiful combination.  As I mentioned above, I also love the green Quadrille zig zag fabric and would love to use it to reupholster her current glider.  There are also two smaller windows in the room, so I picture doing two roman shades lined in a complementary green:

What are your thoughts on Quadrille's youthful textiles?  Do you like the idea of mixing pattern and color here?
