Black, white, and yellow nursery


My daughter's nursery with neutral basics that will transition easily for future children.

Design Inspiration

The design started with the black and white CozyWedge bumper and went from there.  

Decorating Style

On a budget, modern, family friendly.

Project Details

The dresser was a FREE hand-me-down from a friend.  They were going to toss it in the dumpster and I saw it's potential.  A coat of white paint, new hardware, and easy fix of one drawer for under $100!  The penguin art was painted by me on a leftover canvas I had sitting around.  The curtains I sewed myself because I wanted certain baby-proof features to them; there is a PVC pipe hidden in a pocket so that baby can't pull the drapes into the crib.  It's a small room and crib placement next to the window was the best spot.  The cellular blackout shades are cordless as well.  

Favorite Items

My DIY artwork.  The duck shadowbox and penguin painting.


Think outside the pink and blue box.  :)  Don't be afraid to add patterns that are more mature, but mix in fun, kid friendly artwork.  After all, the toys that end up all over the floor tell you it's a kid's room.

You are so right about thinking outside of the blue and pink box when it comes to our babies. Although these colors are still associated with little boys and girls, we should not be afraid to go for other colors, too. Nice room, by the way.

@Recreate, the prints are simple prints of birds and owls I found online images of.  After copying them in photoshop I changed all of the colors to the colors I wanted.  Then printed them onto photo paper at home.  :)
