A Bright & Cheery Stenciled Nursery


Maggie, the proud mama and blogger from Freckled Citizen. Maggie had three things on her nursery decor check list which included bright, colorful, and feminine but absolutely NO pink.  She put together this inspiration board.

Design Inspiration

Her first plan was to decorate the walls with wallpaper.  She had her eye on this red and white designer wallpaper.  After an extensive wallpaper hunt, Maggie realized that there were multiple $$$ attached to her wall decor.  Just as her wallpaper dreams came to a crushing halt, she discovered Cutting Edge Stencils.  She fell in love with our Sari Paisley Allover stencil, an intricate Indian-inspired pattern.  Since the room was already white, they chose to paint the pattern in a bright red, similar to Benjamin Moore's caliente AF-270.  To compliment the bold stencil, she used sweet, feminine prints with bright colors that never veered too saccharine. The final touches came in the pops of color in the room's artwork and accessories.

Where can I find information for all of the prints? This is my daughter's nursery's exact color scheme and I love all of the prints in the collection of 6 and the US map print. Where did you get these?
