For our third baby, I wanted his nursery to be fun, bright, personalized, and a version of the popular woodland theme. I love DIY projects and this nursery was certainly a labor of love, the recipient of my nesting energy, and it turned out better than I had hoped. See more of Porter's nursery on my blog here.
I knew I wanted a bright yellow crib and everything else fell into place after I found our birch tree decals on Etsy. Yellow, Orange and Turquoise were the main colors, combined with dark gray walls. I wanted Porter's room to feel rugged, outdoorsy, and not too babyish.
Eclectic with a touch of modern and vintage. If there is such a style ;)

Either the yellow crib or the custom family wall hanging. It's hard to choose a favorite!
Make choices for colors and decorative touches based on what makes you happy. It will all come together in the end if you stick to a few main colors and a loose theme---but have fun with it and don't worry too much about everything coordinating perfectly. Nurseries are usually more for the parents than the baby anyway, so enjoy the process!
