SWATCH MADNESS!!

We have been making some major nursery progress around here lately...mostly on the planning end of things but still, it feels pretty exciting.

Here is Evie's bedding that came in late last week.

The one big "splurge" that we are buying for the nursery is this amazing rocker/glider from The Land of Nod. We were going to go with a cheap-o rocker from Target, but then several women (who know much better than I) advised that, if we spend money on any one thing, that we should spend it on the chair...since that is where we will be spending the majority of our time sitting/nursing/sleeping/pulling our hair out for the first few months.

So, in light of that advice, I did a ton of research and this one seems like it is going to be amazing. I am really excited about it. On that note, the swatches for the chair and ottoman came in today and I am having a hard time deciding which one to go with.
What do you all think? My very favorite is the pink, but I cringe at the idea of spending $1,000 on a chair that we wouldn't be able to use if we ever have a boy...so I think my second choice might be the green. The swatches are in the upper right corner of the pictures, I put them on top of a sham so you could compare it with the other colors going on in her room. Opinions??The walls are going to have white wainscoting on the bottom and either yellow or green paint on the top...we have not decided which yet.

I'm gonna have to go with Celery stripes or the next favorite would be the butter ... you can't go wrong with either of those two!

My vote would be for the chocolate solely thinking of all the spit up/milk/juice/sticky fingers that will find their way onto that gorgeous chair! However, I liked the butter, too :)

I like the idea of yellow walls and a brown chair with that bedding.

Hmmm... I like the celery stripe but with the cleaning/spit-up/milk spillage issues... I'm thinking Chocolate or Butter. Butter would probably better for hiding spit-up and the like (spit-up shows up on really dark colors). But I do not think it would be difficult to keep the Chocolate looking clean.

I love the crib sheets, they're so cute! I LOVE birds so I would probably get them for my own bed if Paul would let me haha :)

I would go with the Celery and have the chair Scotch-Guarded.

You should definately go nutural! We almost got our chair in red when we had Griffin, but decided last minute to go with a tan. Man I'm so glad I did! Now we have a little girl with a brown and pink room...red would not have gone very well!!!!!!
