With a last name Hoots, I couldn't resist an owl themed nursery. Although I'm not usually crazy about themes, I'm pleased with how it turned out!
I first found the owl prints on etsy and built the room around them. I knew I wanted to stay away from pastels and I was drawn to the bright prints. I went with gray walls, white furniture, and pops of color.
Wish I had one!
A friend painted the wall murals. My mom made the valence and the book sling. Changing table and shelves from IKEA. Bedding is from Skip Hop, Mod Dot collection. Lamp is from Home Goods.

Stay away from baby stores when decorating and if you choose to do a theme, resist the urge to buy everything you find relating to the theme. Owls are everywhere and it would be easy to over do it.
