I wanted to decorate the nursery in Yellow, Gray, White and Apple Green... this was challenging to say the least but I am thrilled with the way it turned out. I used a light gray paint on the walls, white furniture and yellow and green accents.
My inspiration were the colors, from there I went with patterns of stripes, elephants and houdstooth to complete the look.
My decorating style would probably be considered elecletic.
Most items in the room are DIY, my sister in law graciously offered to update a glider I got from a friend. She painted it and recovererd the cushions with the houdstooth fabric I picked out. I made the pinwheel mobile, cornice,pillows on the sofa, and recovered the ottoman.
My favorite item in the room is probably the mobile I made myself. I also love the ABC/123 prints on either side of the crib.
It took many trips to the fabric store to acheive the look I was going for, I was diligent and It paid off.
