A Project For



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.

    So CUTE!!! You are so talented!

  3. 3

    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!

    Where did you get the fabric from? I am in NoVA and am looking for the exact same fabric

  7. 7

    what size rug did you purchase?

  8. 8

    This is gorgeous! Can you tell me what the paint color and brand is? I am having an issue picking a gray. Thx!

  9. 9

    Anyone have any luck figuring out the paint colors?

  10. 10

    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.

  11. 11

    I love the ocean themed growth chart on the wall! Can you tell me where you found it?

  12. 12

    Do you remember which paint colors you used?

  13. 14

    I see the crib and dresser are from Babies r Us, but what is the style?
