The Great Bedding Debate

So. I fell in love with Thibaut's Jacobean Trail wallpaper MONTHS ago... before I knew baby was going to be a girl. I had a few nursery ideas should it be a "he" ... but was CERTAIN about this wallpaper if baby was a "she."

I'm now at a bit of a stand-still. 
Something I like to call the "great bedding debate."
Below are four options that I'm torn over. 
All are beautiful, but trying to figure out what is going to work best with the wallpaper is a bit of a challenge. 

I have fabric samples from both option 1, 3, and the sheet for 2.
I have pretty much already ruled out #1. Not quite the right colors and a little too busy.
It's hard to tell in the picture, but #3 is also a lot of pattern mixing for a room that already will have an entire floral wall. I am leaning towards either option 2 or 4... but still am not sure about introducing gray into the room from #2 and the colors matching right in #4.

Any thoughts? I'd love some opinions :)

In case you haven't heard, it's a...

I think the word is pretty much out, but I thought I'd make it blog-official.
The floral print above is actually the wallpaper that's been the inspiration for baby girl's nursery design. 
More coming soon!

Home Sweet Home.

Along with starting grad school at UNLV this past month, I have been slightly preoccupied... Chase and I bought a house! 
It was sort of this whirl-wind of events, but we started working with a realtor and getting things ready for the search, and then a few days later we were already signing a contract with Warmington Homes. 
Our house was already under construction, and something fell through with the initial buyer, so we came in and scooped it up for a great deal.

It's out in Providence - a master planned community in the very (very!) Northwest of Las Vegas.
I have been lovin' on this community for a while now, and just crossing my fingers that we could find something there in our price range. It has tree-lined sidewalks and brand new community parks. There is also a new elementary school in the area and plans for a new junior high.

Here's the floor plan:

I have been scheming up design boards and furniture layouts for the past few weeks. 
Talk about lack of motivation for grad school hw when you've got a home to be decorating!
I'm definitely excited to share some of my ideas and plans on the blog as well as the actual process of bringing things together after we move in.
