Some of you may remember that a while ago I enlisted help in finding a yellow fabric. At the time, I couldn't tell you why I was looking for such a gender- neutral yellow fabric, but by now, you may have a good guess.
Just over a year ago, my sister moved away and left me with her nursery set. It is a light maple wood, which probably wouldn't be my first choice in bedroom furniture, so I started scouring the internet for room options that would work with said furniture.
It didn't take long before I spotted this room at Ohdeedoh and fell in love with the color scheme and thus my newly inherited furniture.
The room is from the blog Me and Wee and was done for a baby girl. Since we are not finding out the sex of our little one before the arrival (and there's a whole story there, more later), and I was already in love with this room, I figured it was the perfect inspiration for our gender-neutral baby room.
Since it's more than difficult to find bright yellow and white crib bedding, I decided it might be easier to just find some fabric to make a crib bumper and possibly skirt to bring the yellow bedding in (the other bedding would just be white, easy-peasy, right?). Turns out a modern yellow and white fabric is hard to find. This is what I had in mind (but in yellow and white instead of orange and white, obviously):

Here's what I've purchased so far:
But I'm still not completely settled on it. I think it will get the job done, but I'm not sure it was exactly what I was looking for. So if you happen to be out and about and notice some fantastically modern yellow and white fabric, let me know :-)
