DIY with Gorgeous Nursery & Kid's Room Decorative Fabrics February 06 2010

You are My Sunshine Birds on a wire Spot the Bug Happy There’s a lot of snow out there for some of you making a true DIY at-home project very appealing right now. Spoonflower, the design-your-own-fabric website, just announced the winners of its children’s fabrics contest and there are some fabulous designs if you are looking for a more customized look for your nursery or kid’s room.  Use these one-of-a-find fabrics for throw pillows or upholstery for your glider, baby quilts for your crib, curtains for the nursery, and more. Find the top ten list in its entirety or take a peek at a few of our favorites above. We love this darling “You are My Sunshine” nursery-friendly tree and bird fabric by Emily Burger who creates children’s wall prints for nursery decor.  Her dainty blue and pink birds and modern green trees on a white fabric are fresh and fun. This fabric would be beautiful used in a baby’s nursery. To stick with bird themed décor but with a little more punch to your nursery, Yvonne Herbst’s “Bird on Wire” fabric in bright pink, orange, and green is delightful.  Cute birds look at one another perched on a wire.  Given the feminine-tilt of the color palette, this fabric is probably best used in a girl’s room. Alex Morgan’s ladybug-patterned children’s fabric called “Spot the Bug” also brings a punch with its red, blue, orange, and purple palette.  Ladybugs are a popular decorative element in today’s nursery and kid’s room decorating and this punchy palette is a nice way to use the ladybug with a modern, decorative flair.  This fabric would work nicely in a girl’s room or a modern girl’s baby nursery. Finally, we love the regal feeling of this vibrant chocolate brown animal print with blue whales, gold elephants, and green birds.  Great for decorating a boy’s or girl’s room, we love the unique way designer Mary Brewer used flowers for the animals eyes, to add décor to the whales spouting water, and to create ends to the little music notes.  Precious! These decorative fabrics really are a creative (or snowed in) mom’s dream.
