This is a nursery for baby boy that is due to be here soon! I have always loved decorating, but this has been a whole new level of fun. I loved every moment of decorating this sweet nursery for him.
I was inspired by nautical colors, but not a true nautical theme. We went with a blue/orange theme and really built around that. I wanted it to be bold and colorful.
My decorating style is definitely colorful, clean lines, and bold.

I really loved our crib, it was the starting point for the whole room. I also love the pillow in the chair, it turned out better than I had planned it.
My advice would be to not settle when looking for items for your room. If you cannot find the right item, make it or alter it yourself! Do not be afraid to alter/change items that aren't the right color or shape. Many of the items I had were the wrong colors (shelf, dresser, anchor light switch color, nautical hooks on back of door, lamp) and I just painted them. Just don't settle :)
