{Charlotte's Chateau} French Inspired Nursery...

How can you visit France and not be inspired?
 One of my favorite places is the Loire Valley, home to more than 300 Chateaux.  When it came time to design Charlotte's nursery I studied pictures I had taken in France and then found a fabric that inspired the color scheme.  

My husband and I did all the painting and sewing ourselves.  It was a work of love... Full of anticipation while waiting to adopt little Miss Charlotte.  I remember painting the walls and the ceiling wondering how Michelangelo painted the Sistine Chapel?  Did his neck hurt as much as mine? :) And hoping all along that Charlotte's birth mother wouldn't change her mind and decide to keep her.  It can be a joyful and stressful time for parents waiting to adopt.  We got lucky... we got our princess and she got us (and a beautiful French Inspired Nursery)!
