    Beautiful colors!!! Can you please post a link to the DIY mobile? :)

  • Melisa

    I can’t begin to tell you how much your son is gonna love his room by the age of two. As a mom of two boys, the superheros are a must! And you’ve done them sooo very well. I love your designs and wish you much success. Thank you for sharing a great nursery!

  • Jill

    Can you tell me the brand/color of the wall paint? This is exactly the green I am looking for! Beautiful room :)

  • momto2boys

    Beautiful! My 3 yo would love a room like this right about now lol! My favorite thing is the classy/clean/modern way you did the superhero theme. The shared room for my sons have a Dr. Seuss theme. I wish I would have seen your project before lol! When we move I may steal some of your ideas for a superhero themed toddler room.

  • Abi

    I love the wall color! Please Share!

  • Maggie Russo

    Thanks everyone! Let me take a look and see if I can find the paint swatch for the room. I picked a similar color for the mobile but it’s not exact.

    I based the mobile off of this tutorial. The only thing I did different was that I put two circles of the same color back to back so that you didn’t see the printing on the back of the swatch. I also used silver rings to connect each circle instead of string. It takes a little more time but I think it ultimately looks better.

  • Pam

    Mobile is fantastic! Thanks for sharing the tutorial.

  • Maggie

    Ditto on the wall color, please share when you find the swatch.


  • Kelly

    Love the red chevron bin on the dresser – where is that from? thx!

  • Maggie Russo

    The red chevron bin is from Target! They might still have them there.

  • BriskRain

    Whoa color overload! But I meant that in a good way! The combination of colors you have here is simply amazing! You should teach us how to make those lovely mobiles!

  • Kelly

    This is AWESOME. I voted for you! For the mobile – in her tutorial she uses a lampshade, but in yours, it almost looks like it’s just a single metal ring? What did you use? Thanks!

  • Kelly

    Also, how did you hang the mobile? And where did you get the rainbow octopus in the crib? Thank you!!

  • Justin Russo

    We got the rainbow octopus at The Business record store in Anacortes, WA but they available at the Friends of Socktopus shop on Etsy

    I can’t speak to exactly what kind of metal ring my wife and sister in law used, but we hung it using ribbon tied to white ceiling hook.

    Thanks for the votes!

  • Kelly

    Thank you! I wasn’t going to do a mobile in my son’s nursery, but you guys have inspired me to make my own! It’s perfect to tie in all the colors. I don’t see any rainbow octopus on that Etsy shop, but will keep my eye out. Thanks again!

  • Justin Russo


    They actually make each Socktopus out of old sweaters, so I guess we just got lucky and got a rainbow one, but you might be able to e-mail them and request it.

  • Aggie

    Love this room!!!!

  • Rachel

    Any luck on the paint swatch? Love the color, exactly what I was looking for!

  • Maggie Russo


    No luck on the paint swatch yet! I would go with a teal that is not too blue & not too green. Right in the middle! That’s what we did. The swatch in our mobile is pretty darn close, do you want to know what that one is at least? I tried to match it the best I could since I couldn’t find the swatch from the wall. We painted the wall colors a year ago in anticipation of trying for a baby & knowing that it was going to be a baby room eventually.

  • Jazmine

    I love the color. It reminds me of Ben Moore Robins Nest. I have the hardest time picking out colors!

  • Rachel

    Maggie Russo,

    Sure! Anything will help! I’m sure the mobile swatch will point me in the right direction. Thanks!

  • Aarti

    I wanted to make a colorful nursery, but my ideas ended up looking circus-y. What a clean and fun way to do a colorful room.

  • Alison Fennell

    That aqua blue wall is what does it for me:) Sets a lovely background onto which all the clean cut no nonsense boyish whites and lines are placed. Love the style and that circular strand mobile is so sweet. Fabulous.

  • Hayley Bishop

    Hi there, LOVE THIS! Very inspiring and thanks so much for sharing. Just a question on the mobile – what size circle punch did you use and what was the ring diameter of the circle it is attached to..? Many thanks! Hayley

  • savannah

    OMG! I absolutely love this room!!!! where did you get the quilt from? I really like that primary colors were used bc it makes the room so alive! GREAT JOB!!!

  • Jere’

    LOVE this room! Is the crib skirt grey and white chevron? Also where did you have the blanket made?

  • Melissa White

    Wondering if I could ask a couple of questions about the artwork in the nursery?

  • Justin Russo

    Shoot. (sorry for the late response, just now seeing this)
