Description

Fun nursery inspired by DwellStudio's Transportation collection with lots of mixing and matching.

Design Inspiration

I loved the DwellStudio transportation bedding but wanted a more eclectic look. I paired a few Dwell pieces with random finds from Target, Etsy, and other retailers to create something fun and colorful.

Decorating Style

Modern, fun

Project Details

Bedding:

  • DwellStudio stroller blanket and sheet
  • Boppy brand crib skirt
  • Carter's brown minky-dot bumper
  • Accent name pillow by etsy seller, whimseyco
  • Personalized minky blanket from etsy seller, BabyBeulah

Lamps & picture frames: Target   Storage containers: from various places including Target, Home Depot, Dwell, and Hobby Lobby   Wall Decor: Wooden signs by etsy seller Go Jump in the Lake, green mirror from Lowe's, name letters cut from Dwell Studio wallpaper (you can order just a small amount for projects and even scale the pattern to the size you want)   Windows: Eclipse brown curtain panels from Target, Valances/tie-backs sewn from material from the Dwell Studio fabric shower curtain   Shelf: vintage, repainted with Behr paint in Teal Zeal   Mobile and rag wreath: DIY projects made with scraps of the wallpaper and leftover shower curtain Dwell fabric.  Tips for mobile: make sure your cardstock is double-sided.  I purchased a whole pack of cute cardstock only to realize that the white backing didn't have the effect I wanted.

Favorite Items

I really love the etsy items that pull the room together and coordinate, yet keep it from being too theme-y.  I love the transportation pattern, but I didn't want to overdo it.  The pillow, personalized blanket, and bright wall signs add personality.

Advice

Even if you like an expensive bedding set, you can get the same look by purchasing a few less-expensive items from the collection and matching it with lower-priced coordinates from various brands.  I had so much fun putting together this nursery and like the effect more than if I had splurged on the set I initially eyed.

    Who made the pillow for you? I am in LOVE with the transportation theme also. But didnt want to over do it. I think your room turned out perfect and about jumped out of my chair yelling to my husband “this is it! this is what i visioned!!!” lol!

    Thanks so much! The pillow was by etsy seller, whimseyco. I plan to add the Urban Outfitters orange chevron rug to the room soon, but otherwise I haven’t changed a thing. I love his room and it makes me so happy to be in it. Have fun decorating yours!
