Laurie's Nursery Vision:
I had envisioned, when I was pregnant, a calm, quiet retreat for me and the baby. I knew I wanted blue and white paneled walls and I thought that I wanted white furniture. I found his bedding at Serena and Lily and just adored it... I thought "this is the only time that I can decorate his room 'baby' because before long he will want sports and dinosaurs on his walls like most little boys do"... that fabric was perfect. I fell in love, in LOVE with the Baby's Dream, Legendary collection, I was looking for white furniture though. I probably visited the store at least 10 times and always gravitated to that crib, I remember sitting in what is now his glider in the store pondering a decision. I knew I had to have it and I am so glad I went with the darker wood.  It is so PERFECT in his room and so classic, it will never go out of style! He will have the furniture for a long time. As many times as I sat in the glider, I knew I had to have it too, so I had one more desicion to make... what color I would get the chair in. That was an easy decision, I simply brought in a fabric swatch from his bedding and all of the associates sat down with me to decide on a material and the matching piping for the chair. He is now 10 months and I still go in his room and sit in that glider and somewhat escape... it is the most comfortable, peaceful and calm place that I have ever been.
