This nursery is for my son Levi and it was so much fun to plan and decorate this special room for him!

Design Inspiration

My initial inspiration came from a nursery that I saw right here on Project nursery! My favorite part of that nursery was the color theme of teal and orange so I started with the color theme for my nursery. With both my husband and I being veterinarians animals are a large part of our life so going with dog accents seemed fitting. I wanted the colors to be the main theme and the dogs to just be a fun addition so I decided to have all the bedding, curtains, rug, etc. have the orange and teal in bold geometric patterns. I decided to pull in the dog accents as mainly wall art and decorations around the room.

Decorating Style

I wouldn't say I have a decorating style. I like clean designs and bright colors.

Favorite Items

My favorite items are the bedding/curtains that my wonderful mother spent so much time on! A close second is my alphabet wall! I poured my heart and soul into making it and love, love, love how it turned out.


My advice is to not conform to what people "think" a nursery should look like. I went with bold, non-tradition colors and loved the outcome. If there are colors or a theme that you are dying to use than go for it!
