Modern Blue Stripe Nursery for our Little Monkey


Since #2 is almost here and my second nursery is almost complete, I thought I would finally organize and post pictures of our first child's nursery.  I wanted room that he could grow into so avoided a typical pastel muted nursery look and went for bold blues with pops of bright colour.

Design Inspiration

This website along with HGTV's "Rate my Space" were very helpful in getting ideas.  This particular nursery however, was my inspiration for this room: Modern Boys Room

Decorating Style

I like a modern look with clean lines.

Your striped wall is lovely! I really like that you used various tones of a similar shade of blue. I also like the overall simplicity and cleanliness of the room.
