Unexpected Inspiration

I am always looking for new inspiration to incorporate into the nursery and child’s room. With all the new ways to find ideas on the web, it is easy to take inspiring ideas and translate them into your home. Trends today are full of color and detail; I love that we are becoming more daring in our pattern choices. From classic to modern, from romantic to bohemian—filling our homes with “unexpected” drama is increasingly in demand.

A twist on the classic stripe—chevrons are making an entrance into the nursery.

The treatment for walls and ceilings is reaching new heights with the use of tent like inspiration. Color up the nursery or child’s room with this boho-style idea.

Romantics take heart in a room full of pink. Inspired by the tutu and the full  bloom of color, it’s a lovely and soft idea for a room.

Where ever you may be, look for inspirational ideas that will help you create your own “unexpected” nursery.

I'm not a fan of chevron, but i agree with daring and bold colors being the trend and being inspirational.
