“Arrows” was one of the first patterns that I developed for my new fabric collection. I wanted it to have a painterly effect where the brushstrokes were evident. We’re offering it in 10 colors from neutrals to more vibrant hues. It’s a versatile pattern that could work in a range of aesthetics and rooms depending on the color you choose.

Here we’ve used it in the graystone color and paired it with camel and blush pink as an accent. This scheme lends itself to a vintage vibe and makes for a soft and sweet nursery. The ruffled edge around the pillows offers a frilly, girly feel. The pattern’s scale works for many uses – drapery panels, pillows and even the crib’s bed skirt.

Cut yardage and pillows from the Shay Geyer Collection are available to purchase at IBB Design Fine Furnishings and at Ask one of our designers for a quote for custom drapery and bedding made from these fabrics.

Sneak Peek: Brooklyn’s Nursery

Today’s Sneak Peek Saturday is a glimpse into the nursery of our sweet baby girl Brooklyn who is due to arrive any day now.  All of the bedding is what I used in our oldest daughter’s nursery.  I chose to go more funky & not so “baby” in the room so that it would grow with her.  Turquoise, hot pink, bubblegum pink & lime green compose the color story.  I added accents of black & white for some contrast & spunk.  I’m a big fan of vibrant colors & six years later, the fabrics are still fun & fresh.  You don’t have to go this bold or funky in your nursery, but I always say it’s a good idea to plan a room with room to grow.  Using a baby theme or baby specific farbrics may create the need to re-do the baby’s room once they pass the toddler years.  The longevity of your design investment goes right out the window.

I even used the same drapery panels that we had in Jaylie’s nursery.  The windows in our new house are a bit taller, but I was able to let the hem out & they worked beautifully.  The art above the crib was a gift from my friend Kris Perry, an artist I work with a lot.  I love ceiling treatments in baby’s rooms because it gives them something to look at while they’re laying in their crib.  Even though I thought my decorative painter was going to have a heart attack when I told him the plan, I just love how the turquoise stripe turned out.  The inside of the bumper pad is a black & white zebra, so I used a zebra cowhide rug underneath the crib to ground the vivid colors.  I couldn’t find Jaylie’s crib in storage so, the crib (from Young America) is a new addition.  They have so many fun paint finishes to choose from & offer cribs & other kid’s furniture from traditional to more modern in style.

All of the big stuff is done.  We’ve got the room organized & ready for baby.  I’m waiting on a few last designer details like a custom chandelier I’m having made from Stray Dog Designs & a nightstand to go beside the twin bed in the room.  I hope you enjoyed todays’s sneak peek & I can’t wait for precious Brooklyn to get to enjoy it.  When the room is complete, I’ll post the rest of the photos.  Happy weekend everyone!

Nursery Inspiration

After a weekend of nesting like crazy (I organized & cleaned out 3 closets!)  & my little “bump” growing bigger by the day, I am definitely in full baby mode these days.  We are very excited to be having another little girl.  I love to design kids rooms & nurseries.  It’s a great area to let the imagination run wild & to let your creativity flow.  I will be sharing much more with you about my nursery in the coming months, but for now, I thought I’d leave you with a few of the nurseries we have done over the years at IBB Design.

Sneak Peek Saturday: Designer Nursery

Today’s Sneak Peek Saturday is from IBB designer Shannon Gidney.  Shannon is just weeks away from delivering her first child, a baby girl.  We are all so excited & can’t wait until baby Morgan arrives!  This sweet nursery is layered in creams, chocolate brown & turquoise.  A few antique touches, like a rocker Shannon found, help give the room a vintage feeling.  The drapery fabric is from Kravet.  It’s also used on the top of the ottoman & again in the crib bedding.  There are lots of more fun details to share with you like an amazing hand crafted dresser & fun little touches Shannon created to let her sweet little angel always know how much she is adored.  Congratulations John & Shannon!

Stay tuned for more nursery details & updates on Morgan’s arrival.  You can contact Shannon here. or 214-618-6630
