Nursery Fabric Hunt

Today, I head to Toronto's fabric/garment/fashion district on a mission to find the perfect nursery fabric.

I have a lot of inspiration for the nursery decor and am anxious to get started on it. We've decided on grey/blue/orange as a colour scheme. Easy enough?

Do you know how many different colours of blue exist in this world?? Baby blue, turquoise, aqua, grey-blue, bright blue, sky blue, royal blue... and don't even get me started on the oranges, which range from brightly neon to a burnt orange and everything in between. *sigh*

Our inspiration photo we keep coming back to is this one:

Since the perfect fabric is harder to find than a coordinating paint colour, I've decided to start the process with the fabric search for curtains, crib sheets and change pad covers.

Ideally, I'd like to find a blue chevron fabric like in the photo and an elephant fabric in blue or orange, like these:
 Wish me luck on my search today!! I'm off...
