First of all...Thank you to Grace over at Design*Sponge for featuring our Before & After of our Master Bedroom. I felt really special yesterday, and I love seeing new commenters, and will reply this evening to some of the questions that have popped up in the comment section. :)
On to shopping! I picked up crib for our nursery. We are going with a Jenny Lind. Kind of a big jump from my original pick of ultra modern style.
Turns out that I slept in a Jenny Lind style crib. Mom loved the crib and I therefore had sentimental reasons to love it, and the rest is history. :)
Over at Urban Grace, she used her childhood bed but had it sprayed gold. (I haven't found a good after photo on her blog but I will try to update it when I find it!)
Nicole over at Making it Lovely chose a Jenny Lind style of crib and posted these inspirational photos.
Here is her Jenny Lind crib for Eleanor.

I called around the city, and no one, absolutely no one carried it. But I do some graphic design work for a baby store Dear-Born Baby, and called them to see if they carried the crib. Although the crib is not on display, they said that they could get it in. :) WHOOP!
I'm glad I inquired sooner than later as these things need to be special ordered. Although I'm ahead of the game, the crib will take some time to get here.
It's slightly more traditional than I had intended, but I'm going to modernize the room with the bedding and other areas. :)
Ps., We chose a carpet for the nursery and it's being installed Tuesday!
Update, Sunday January 17th...I found some more pictures of Jenny Lind cribs in use!
