For my third baby boy I wanted to create a cool, modern nursery different from ones done for my two older boys. The inspiration came from a bird wallpaper print that I found that was great, but way too expensive. I found some amazing decals on Etsy that were actually way cooler than the wallpaper and ordered them in the color scheme I wanted (Black, White, Aqua Blue and Fern Green). We painted the back wall black to offset the decals and the other three walls aqua blue. I added fern green accents throughout the room with the rug, bedding and lighting and mirrored the bird theme on the opposite wall by having decals made for a plain white dresser I found at Ikea. Quinn's two older brothers painted some small wooden birdhouses from a craft store to line a wall shelf and then I found another large birdhouse made from recycles materials for on top of the dresser. I absolutely LOVE the custom birth announcement canvas I bought from Trendy Peas and the fabric "PLAY" letters are great too. The crib and changing table are from the Babyletto Mercer and Modo collections and the Ikea black and white lightbox provides the perfect soft lighting for middle of the night diaper changes.
I wanted something fun and modern but that didn't take itself too seriously. I found some amazing bird motif wallpaper that I fell in love with - but it would have been $500 just to do the back wall. I searched Etsy and found these great decals for less than $100 and the rest came together from there.
