Baby boy nursery with pops of turquoise while on a budget.
I knew I wanted to create a space that felt calm and peaceful, perfect for a sweet baby. I also love color (especially bright, bold colors) so I knew I needed a punch of something. I went with gray and white, and pops of turquoise (and a couple of hints of yellow). I searched Project Nursery and Pinterest for ideas.
I wanted pieces that were gender neutral enough that could be used again, nothing too masculine or sharp. I also was completing the entire room on a budget (my husband and I are both in college). I knew I wanted items that were made with love or had meaning behind them.

I honestly love everything in the room. My favorite items in the room are the rocking chair - we have had many bonding moments in early morning hours & late nights in that chair.
I also love the wall (adds a great pop in a small space) and the quilt.
Don't put an item in the nursery if you don't really love it or if it doesn't have meaning behind it. The whole room is then created with meaning and love.
I picked the fabric first for the bedding, and everything else came together from there.
