Description

When I found out I was pregnant, one of the first things I did was start dreaming about the nursery. I had an idea of what we wanted if it was a girl and a different idea for a boy. Well when our ultrasound came up, we could not tell if the babe was a boy or girl...but I was just dying to get started. I took my two ideas and smooshed them together...ending up with our turquoise, orange, and yellow color scheme. We found out later it was a boy, so I began adding in cute little guy elements.

Design Inspiration

There are a couple nurseries that inspired me in my every day scouting of Project Nursery, Ohdeedoh, and so on.  Overall, I was in love with turquoise and knew I had to launch from there.  I also found a shower curtain with zoo animals and bright colors from Target.  It inspired the rest of the room and acts as the closet "door."

Decorating Style

modern, colorful, ecclectic, budget

Project Details

Almost all of our furniture were hand me downs or Goodwill purchases-We used a lot of spray paint!  My goal was to spend very little on the room (and we succeeded!)  To do so, most accessories and frames are yard sale or thrift store buys either as is or painted.  We also did a ton of DIY projects...I found pieces I liked online (ie mobile, window garland) and felt confident I could accomplish them on my own.  My husband is also a very talented artist, so if I had an idea I liked...I could call on him to design it without having to shell out tons of money finding something online.  (He made the monster prints, pirate print, wooden animals, and foot stool.)

Favorite Items

All of it!   I just love that we made so much of the room, and how it all came together.  I am really obsessed with the Mustache Number Print that I bought from Etsy (seller:sugarfresh), the monster prints by my husband, the window garland by me, and the elephant hamper (that I saw in so many other nurseries.)

Advice

My advice is to find your talents, or your siginificant others and friends, and incorpoorate them into the room.  Also you never know if you can do something unless you try!  It is easier to find things to work into a theme or color scheme if you pace yourself, and not try to find everything at once.  Spray paint is your best friend if you have a scheme that includes hard to find colors.  (Orange is impossible :))  Lastly, ignore people that give you a funny look when you tell them your ideas for the room....I got a lot of them, but now everyone loooves the nursery!

    You did such an amazing job!!  I love so many things, but the mobile is by far my favorite!  Your baby will love it! 

    I own a baby inspiration blog, http://www.bluebirdkisses.com and would love to feature this in it to give other moms some great ideas of what they would maybe want to design for their own babies.  Please let me know if that’s something you’d be interested in.  My email is info@bluebirdkisses.com Thank you :)

    I love this room!  I am working on a gender neutral nursery along the same color lines, for our baby due at the end of Aug.   You did a beautiful job and I love that it didn’t cost you a lot! I have a couple questions if you don’t mind sharing…where did you get the crib sheet and the fabric on the boppy?  And what color is the paint?  Thanks!

    Thank you!  Sorry it took so long to respond.  I was trying to figure out the paint shades  we used :)

    Shades were valspar from Lowes (although mixed into Olympic paint) Turquoise= sea wave, Grey= I am unsure…I beleive it was the grey on the same swatch card one shade darker than seashell grey.

    Crib sheet was made by a friend with fabric from JoAnn Fabrics.  (I could not find sheets I liked anywhere that didn’t cost a ton.)

    Boppy cover:  Called “Letterset.”  Bought on Amazon.

    Good luck on your nursery!

    Hi there, I love this! It has inspired us a lot for our little boys nursery.

    With the mobile what did you use for the circles? Is it just cardboard?

    Is this an Ikea cot?

    The circles were made from cardstock, two pieces taped/glued together with string in the middle.  I bought a “circle puncher” to punch the holes!

    And yes the crib is IKEA :)

    wow!  I love this color palette!  We are keeping gender a surprise so I’ve been researching more gender neutral, but vivid inspirations for a nursery!  I consider this pretty gender neutral…that blue, eventhough it’s blue could really go either way…boy or girl.  Well done!

    Definitely imagine that that you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be at the web the easiest factor to have in mind of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed even as folks think about issues that they plainly don’t realize about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest as well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , folks can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thank you

    I love this nursery! I am currently working on an elephant/giraffe themed room using orange, yellow, and brown with touches of green for our son arriving in April. Where did you get the small bins hanging above the changing table? I really like them…we are cloth diapering and they would be perfect for some cloth wipes.
