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.

Design Inspiration

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.

Decorating Style

Eclectic with a touch of modern and vintage. If there is such a style ;)

Favorite Items

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!

    Where did you get that sign? Or the supplies for the big sign with “Porter” on it? I really want to find or make it!
