Design Board: Whimsical Grey and Yellow Dandelion Nursery

We painted what will soon be the nursery a really soft shade of yellow a couple months back when we were transforming the room into a guest room. Yellow is a pretty neutral color to begin with and could work with a wide variety of themes; I thought it would be a great idea to put together a yellow themed nursery board.

Once I started thinking about the color yellow itself I quickly found myself wrapped up in dandelions. I really love the idea of layering greys and yellows of different shades in one room. Mixing and matching different fabrics and patterns should create depth and interest. The major pieces {crib and glider} would be solid colors to offset the amount of movement going on with patterns elsewhere.

Why dandelions?  I wanted something simple, something whimsical, and something that I could mix traditional and modern pieces with easily. Dandelions are something I remember looking for and making wishes on as a child and it just seemed like a really fun and sweet nursery theme.

I thought about doing pom poms and paper lanterns in place of the mobile, but I really liked this mobile and the use of the different shades of grey. I guess the same effect could be done with paper lanterns and tissue pom poms using various shades of both yellow and grey. I just wonder where I would put it and how I would hang it?

What do you think?
