RED TOILE NURSERY
My Baby Girl's Red and White Gingham and Red Toile Nursery Bedding and Decor
Here are the pictures of my red toile nursery, baby bedding and decorations! I wanted a red nursery for my baby girl because her room is on the north side of our house and has very little natural light. Red is such a warm, cozy color and this space needed a little bit of added warmth.

FINDING RED TOILE BABY BEDDING
I shopped for a red toile nursery bedding set online and the ones that I liked were too expensive plus the red toile fabric looked burgundy or maroon and I had visions of bedding made with cheerful red toile fabric with a baby print. I decided at this point that I would be making my own baby bedding set which was no big deal because I have a sewing machine and sew all the time. RED TOILE FABRIC
The next step was to get some toile fabric swatches and make a decision. I considered red and yellow toile but I chose the red and white pattern because the nursery were painted a light brown or tan and when I put the red and yellow swatch up the yellow clashed with the paint color.
So, that decision was made for me....I would be decorating a white and red toile nursery. If I had wanted to give the walls a makeover, my baby girl would probably be sleeping in a French country nursery but I had to work with what I had. Plus, I found enough yards of the toile I wanted for sale CHEAP in an Ebay auction. RED TOILE NURSERY WINDOW VALANCES
I was afraid that I wouldn't have enough to make curtains after making the bumper pad, the dust ruffle and the crib quilt even though I used red gingham fabric for the crib skirt and the baby quilt's border rather than piecing with solid red and red toile fabric like I would have loved to do.
And I was correct that there was not enough red and white toile fabric left to make curtain panels, but I had enough left over to make a tab top valance. RED TOILE NURSERY DECORATIONS
After my homemade red toile baby bedding was in the baby bed along with the red crib sheet that I bought, something was missing... I needed something else in the nursery to balance things out. Then, I remembered this old red gingham lamp shade that I had in the closet! It's not red toile, but this lamp will work until I see my way clear to recovering it or I find something I like better.
