Too many prints?

I think I'm probably making a mistake asking my hubby for his input, but anytime I ask him about fabric for the nursery, he tells me it's "too busy".  He and his man-mind probably thinks we should have solid everything, though. ;)


Currently, her bumper and crib skirt are a very versatile and plain light pink... I might jazz up the bumper by changing the ties, but it should remain fairly simple overall.

I also just received this fabric which I was planning on making a few throw pillows from... The initial plan was a crib sheet, but it's not the softest fabric so I think I need an alternative.

I also have this cushion for her bench and I want a throw pillow in her crib to have the same print...

I was trying to find another fabric to bring in the aqua from the walls a little more and I found this... it has all the colors for her nursery.  What do you think?  Maybe a few throw pillows for the bench and glider, and I think it will work well for the crib sheet because it comes in cotton sateen...


It has such an adorable sense of vintage whimsy... dontcha think?

Also comes in pink but I'm leaning towards the aqua because we have so much pink already.

I feel like I have mush brain trying to piece it all together... I read online the rule of thumb is to do an odd number of prints.  So I think I'm good if I stay with these and do the rest of the large items in solids (i.e. reupholster the glider).  Thoughts?

I love the prints you've chosen! I think because they're all accent pieces rather than massive areas, you're A-OK including them all. And even though pink is my favorite color, I'm also preferring the aqua to the pink clock pattern.


Good choices all 'round!

Loooooove the prints! Especially that aqua colored one!  It'll fit in perfectly with your theme.
