Inspired By Showers

You would not believe how hard it was for me to pick what type of pleat I wanted for the nursery drapes. In addition to decorators never being able to make a decision when it comes to their own house, pregnancy brain has nearly debilitated me from making any decisions for this nursery (luckily clients seem to be exempt from this side effect). Anyhoo, the workroom called to say they are ready and the pleats look great, which somehow lead to a discussion about Jan Showers. A light bulb went off in my head...ahhh Jan Showers an old favorite I had not visited in a while. I took a moment to visit her site and left feeling refreshed.
One of my all time favorite rooms...
After looking at Jan's website I quickly went over to Amazon, credit card in hand braced for a healthy dose of impulse buying when I remembered that every last penny these days need to go towards this, this, this and more. Booooo. I am putting Glamorous Rooms on my Christmas list though, assuming I can wait that long.

I cannot seem to commit to nursery drapes either. We are doing everything in khaki and cream, but I would love to have either pink or blue brought in through the drapes. I just can't decide what I like and what I want. Grrrr!

I'm a huge Jan Showers fan myself! FYI, Borders Books is going out of business and I've seen copies of Glamourous Rooms in there discounted :-)

Pregnancy brain is quite common I assure you and I'm sure that whichever pleat you decided on is perfect. When is that precious baby due?

Jan Showers is just great. She surely has an eye for design and creativity. I really love all these designs. Every element just works in perfect harmony with the others. Indeed, she knows how to turn a house into a home. Thank you for sharing such inspiring photos. Can you please share what came about with your nursery room?
