A Happy and Colorful Nursery for My Baby Boy!


I wanted to create a happy nursery for my little man. I chose items that made me smile - the mobile, the expressions on the pull toys, stuffed animals and etsy prints.

Design Inspiration

I didn't want to do a theme nursery. I started with gray and yellow colors, the aqua color came about as a common color from items I chose. I smile whenever I walk into the room, I hope my baby enjoys it as well. My little dog thinks the room is for him....

Decorating Style

My house is eclectic - lots of blues, greens, lavenders.....

Project Details

crib: oeuf, crib linen:, jenny lind bed and linens: land of nod, rugs: dash and albert: tortola, glider: pottery barn, elephant side table: serena and lily, pouf ottoman: overstock, french pull toys: fiddle sticks in San Francisco, cloud shelves: land of nod, large giraffe: melissa and doug (of course!), yellow nightstand/dresser: vintage thomasville (craigslist), mobile: blabla (land of nod), various prints: etsy, stuffed animals: land of nod/giggle/presents from friends, yellow lamp: pottery barn from several years ago, grey elephant bank: pottery barn kids, bambi clock: land of nod, la voiture pillow on bed:, flag banner: land of nod (I removed the pink flags), hanging birds on a branch: cost plus world markets, jelly changing pad:

This nursery looks nice and happy. I like the white pouf ottoman and that cute little framed print by the changing table.

Everything came out lovely, and colorful and fun. I'm sure your little guy will love this. I like that bit about your dog thinking the room's for him.
