An Ode to Alabama Football

Who’s ready for football season to start in just over one week?!  We sure are!

From Alabama Baby Clothes and Gifts to Houndstooth Bedding and Baby Books, we LOVE anything Alabama and especially when it includes houndstooth!

Not only is this fabric popular in good ol’ Alabama thanks to Bear Bryant’s hat, this is also a classic print fabric that we’re seeing everywhere from dresses and purses to chairs and curtains!

We get a lot of requests for Alabama nurseries, and while our tried and true black and white houndstooth bedding always looks great (and we keep it in stock!), I wanted to make a nursery that ever-so-gentlemanly tips its hat at the famous at fabric and University without getting too “Alabama themed”.

Here’s what I’ve come up with….

1. Young America’s Built to Grow 2000 Slat Crib in Black Light Antique — black to add some weight and convertible so it grows up with your little one!

2. Houndstooth and chocolate linen bumper for the crib from Pine Creek Bedding with a chocolate velour inside and trimmed in (#7) crimson linen fabric

3. A classic red ticking stripe fabric for the dust ruffle and an accent pillow for the glider again from Pine Creek Bedding.

4. Young America’s All Seasons 5 drawer chest in Chili Pepper Sand Thru

5. Four Season’s Sarah Glider in white with chocolate piping — made from a down-mix filling, this chair spoils you!  We’ve talked about these chairs before, and you’ve absolutely got to sit on one to appreciate it.  Plus, you don’t have to be scared of white fabric because it’s a slipcover that can be washed or dry-cleaned!

6. A vintage state of Alabama print that I found on Etsy (my love) — The detail is adorable, and I love the darker green as an accent to the chocolates and reds!

7. Classic crimson linen fabric — accent with this fabric to your heart’s content.  Use it for drapes, for accent pillows, and more!

The background is the paint color I would use (and it helps that it’s what’s already in my guest room)– Benjamin Moore’s Grant Beige.  A dark khaki that isn’t overwhelming but is a great neutral you won’t have to paint again in three years.

Since we have multiple Daniel Moore Alabama prints in our house, I would “borrow” a couple to hang over the chest and on an accent wall over the glider.

There you have it.  My classic nursery with a sweet and simple nod to Alabama.  I’d like to think it’s one of those classic nurseries that can grow with the little one, but I’m always open to comments, suggestions, etc.  Tell me what you think!
