Ariston’s Eclectic Nursery


We didn't want a theme so that he could easily grow into his room. We love the mix of animals, airplanes, and art work.

Design Inspiration

Really I just based my initial design off of the colors (Yellow, Gray, and White)....from there we started to incorporate red, blue, and green. It was fun to just add cool art or stuffed animals that we thought he might enjoy looking at as he grows.

Favorite Items

The glider is THE most comfortable chair EVER!!! But besides that....I just love every little thing in this room. I'm looking forward to spending so much time in here once this little guy makes his appearance. :)


Collect little things that mean something to you or that catch your eye! We avoided big box stores and matching sets of anything so we could achieve a collected, eclectic look.

Thanks so much! That will match perfectly! You have ended my search- thank you thank you thank you!! And yes, as my Dr father-in-law always says, Babies don't read books...they'll come in their own sweet time and do all those accomplishments when they do them. :)
