Brody’s Nintendo Nursery


An old school Nintendo theme for our first little boy.

Design Inspiration

My husband and I are both gamers. I wanted to do something modern, eclectic and colorful to suit my tastes as well as fun for both of us to enjoy.  I didn't want it to be to "themey" so I added in the Nintendo vibe with art and accents.

My husband made the Tetris shelves and the yellow book shelf.  I made all the cross stitches as well as the controller artwork.  I put the mobile together myself with the Pacman figures I got from Etsy.

Favorite Items

I LOVE the rocking chair. It was a gift from a former coworker. I also love the way the handmade Nintendo controller artwork turned out. And of course my husband's handmade Tetris shelves! Love all the storage they provide!


I try not to be too "themey", so I didn't go for Mario fabrics or things like this. I tried to bring in the Nintendo vibe with artwork more than anything else.
