Baby Room Ideas

We are trying to finish up some "construction" in the soon to be baby's room so that we can start decorating and putting it all together. I borrowed a great idea from my friend for the art and we are using pages from Catherine Ledner's Animal House framed in a grouping. I am also borrowing an idea from my Celery Kemble's decorating book and painting a Jenny Lind crib (blue or green).

So far those are my only ideas. I am still trying to figure out complete the whole room without making it look like a generic baby room. In searching my library on defunct magazine's and found two cute kids rooms that I like. First is Jennifer Delonge's son's room from the Fall/Winter 2007 InStyle Home magazine. I like that the room is not too kid-ish, but is also not over decorated and is a place for a baby.

Also I have Barrie Benson's son's room pulled open for inspiration. She mixes blues, greens and oranges in a "collected over time" look. I cannot scan this photo since our printer is out of commission but you can in the October 2007 issue of Domino.

My goal is to have all the big elements of the room complete by end of March so I have the last month without that project looming over us.
