Element Crib by AP Industries, in cottage white
So...what we have found is that the Element crib comes in what they call "cottage white" and is a nice white colour, exactly what you would expect when you hear white. The problem is, Paige (here's your shout out as requested) thinks it looks like a dog crate. I think it's trendy but??? The Pottery Barn crib looks white in all the pictures online and in their catalogue however, when you see it in person it is an antique white colour and when you put a white quilt with it the crib looks yellow. They do this so you have to purchase all the matching pieces but when operating on a budget we can't afford to do your whole nursery in PB Kids. So we went to visit this crib since we were told the spring white colour was more white. When we saw it it was still super yellow looking. The sales associate helping us was trying to sell it regardless of the fact that I didn't like it. I was holding up paint samples I had collected to see if I could make it work but still wasn't sold. She finally asked me what my colours were and when I told her she said "Well, that's not exactly in style right now"....I was like Oh no you didn't. Can you believe the nerve of this lady to tell a pregnant woman that her vision for the perfect nursery was not in style? She was a little bit older so I am writing her rude comment off as a hormonal imbalance of her own.
So what to do...crate or yellow crib? Pretty sure we are settled on the crate. It seemed to work well for Urban. :)
