Here's a real-life nursery with some of the same ideas...zebra rug, darker walls, etc. I don't think we'll go that dark on the walls, but the furniture will be similar...white-washed crib and dresser. If only I could find that darn zebra rug...it was at Target, but again, it's now sold out.
I love this nursery from Pottery Barn. I think we'll do the walls a similar color, and I have looked for the rug, but it seems to be gone...and I can easily picture myself curled up in that chair with sweet baby Eli in the early morning hours.
