Welcome to the Skip Hop Nursery Design Event! This nursery was designed by Lay Baby Lay and was inspired by Skip Hop’s Complete Sheet, the Alphabet Zoo Collection. For more information on the design event and for details on how you can win prizes daily click here. - Project Nursery

Design Inspiration

I tried to go with cheery, primary palette to pair with the Skip Hop bedding and accessories.  Brightly colored artwork and white furniture keep the room clean and happy.

Decorating Style

I love using a lot of colors and finding inspirational artwork that is fun for both mama and baby to enjoy.  I usually incorporate a good bit of vintage finds into my rooms and they tend to be somewhat eclectic, but this room is a bit more clean and traditional.

    I love the pop of yellow in this nursery! Great for a neutral room for a boy or girl!

  17. 17

    This is my favorite of the 4 by far! I love the all the fun pops of color and all of the small, cool details. My favorite print is the “For Like Ever”, been pondering ordering that for my house for a little while now.

  18. 18

    I like this room because there were colors, but not your standard primary boring colors. It can be for both boy or girl babies & has a friendly, trendy feel.

    I have been scouring the internet for that plush elephant in the crib and I can’t find it anywhere! Even the SkipHop website doesn’t have it! This is our nursery theme (we even have a similar wall color!) and I’d like to have that stuffed elephant! Where can I find it?

  29. 29

    My favorite of the nurseries presented! Digging the tones in the Alphabet Zoo sheet set and it seems like it would work well for boys and girls, which is important because I’m not finding out what I’m having!

    Love this design – it’s fun and bright but so sophisticated. We aren’t finding out if our little one is a he or she, so I also love that this is neutral without being boring.

    I’ve worked in day cares for 5+ years. I have a degree in Early Childhood Education. It just makes sense that I’m drawn to the alphabet theme. Skip Hop makes some amazing designs. I can’t wait for our Baby V to have their alphabet nursery.
