After WAY TOO MANY hours of looking around I think I have narrowed somethings down for the baby/guest room… here are my ideas. I should be ordering this stuff instead of putting it all together but I always LOVE your suggestions!!!! So leave me comments because I’ve got to order TODAY!!!
Pillows for Guest Bed (all white bedding). Which ones do you like better (blue or gold based)?
Maybe the Elephant sheet from Target? But better yet …. the Olive Elephant fabric from Umbrella Prints & a custom blanket made!!!
– The animal prints from here (maybe just one or maybe 3 in an ornate frame?).
Toadstool nightlight because I have been wanting this FOREVER
Snowball light fixture. Which I’m not sure if I can even purchase in the states? Anyone have any info?
-I don’t have a bench but I thought it would be fun to paint the changing table green like it (image via Decor8)!
-And still on the lookout for a cool bedside lamp & maybe a coordinating pillow for the {ugly} rocking chair
Any ideas, suggestions or pieces you’ve seen that would look good?

    I am not a gold person, but the gold pillows are talking to me. Saying, pick me, pick me! I think they would be la la lovely. Ikea has a similar "snowball" light in case you cannot get a hold of the one you posted about.
    Good luck, it looks terrificly unique! Which I love.

    i love your ideas! I love the blue pillows, but picking either one you can't go wrong. KJ has the sheets and the little quilt to match, but I use it on the reverse. The art is adorable as is the nightlight. And yes ikea's lamp is so similar. definitely worth a look.

    So far it looks like you have made some great choices! I prefer the blue pillows. I definitely think you should do all three animal prints. And green for the changing table? YES!
    I actually used to have a nightlight just like this one… how funny! (It's 30 years ago!)

    Good luck on your final choices!

    Love the idea of painting the changing table a funky color- have fun with it because you use it for such a short period of time. Why not enjoy it because you'll be standing at it a BILLION times a day (sorry- just venting- I have two kids in diapers)

    Love all the ideas! I saw a similar snowball light at Ikea the other day, so you could try that – and I love the elephant fabric, all the colors look great together!

    Love it! My vote is the bed skirt from Target, the elephant print from Umbrella Prints and custom blanket, gold pillows, green changing table and maybe an accent pillow in the same elephant print to tie it all together, and all the other accessories! So cute!

    Love all your choices!! How fun! My choices: Gold pillows, Umbrella prints, Love the animal prints, great toadstool nightlight.

    Snowball light fixture is fantastic…not sure where you can get that here in the states? Have you tried Modern Dose, they have the Lotus Flower Chandelier, not exactly the same as the light you want, but I think you can get it the size you want.

    Also, I think this decolyb clock would look great in this room:

    Have so much fun deciding!!!
