Due January 2013

A modern, vibrant orange and turquoise nursery for our baby-to-be!

Design Inspiration

Since we live in Maryland, our favorite summer treat is steamed crabs, and with that in mind, we thought a nautical-themed nursery would be a perfect reflection on us as a couple, and our baby-to-be! The prints that I found on then became the inspiration for the whole nursery.

    This nursery is creative and unique! The person whom planned this had a vision and executed a sophisticated, colorful and fun room. I am sure the appearance will only get more lively with the arrival of Carter!

    I used Jamaican Sea for the ceiling and Silver Trophy for the walls from Home Depot… Came out pretty darn close if you ask me. I also got the matching chevron fabric for the curtains from Hope that helps – I had issues with the gray color myself.
