Design Reveal: Blue Sky & Tangerine Dreams

It doesn’t get more picture perfect than little Julian’s room. Mom did all the right things to pull off this classic yet updated nursery. From painting the insides of shelves orange to adding bold stripes on an accent wall, we adore everything this soothing baby boy’s room has to offer.

Child’s name: Julian
Age: 1
Location: Kansas City, MO

What was your inspiration for the room?
Serena and Lily’s “Ben” bedding was our inspiration. it is a fabulous combination of sky blue and tangerine orange with white animal silhouettes.

What best describes your decorating style?
A mix of classic and eclectic. I love to mix antiques and ethnic touches with classic pieces.

Please share with us your choice of paint colors, furniture, art, diy tips, etc.
Serena and Lily’s Ben bedding was our inspiration, we loved the color combo!

Instead of doing the walls solid, we decided to stripe one wall to make it interesting. We used Benjamin Moore’s “old pickup blue” which is a really bright, cheerful shade.

We took a white shelf with hooks and painted the inside of the cubbies to match the room, it definitely added interest to the shelf.


I used different resources to make the room more personal-one of my favorites is this monogram pillow from so-bright designs on Etsy. I hand picked the fabric for the “J”. I also used fabric letters from Anthropologie for his monogram on the wall.

I used coordinating Grosgrain ribbon to use as ties for his drapes.

What is your favorite item(s) in the room?
Outside of the bedding, which is fabulous, I really love the striped wall…it makes the room interesting and unique.

Is there anything else you would like PN readers to know?
I think that anything can be inspiration for a room, whether it’s bedding, a piece of art, or even just fabric. Pick something you love and go with it!
