Carter’s Turquoise & Orange Nursery


A modern, vibrant orange and turquoise nursery for our baby-to-be!

Design Inspiration

Since we live in Maryland, our favorite summer treat is steamed crabs, and with that in mind, we thought a nautical-themed nursery would be a perfect reflection on us as a couple, and our baby-to-be! The prints that I found on then became the inspiration for the whole nursery.

Favorite Items

My favorite items have to be the bookshelves, curtains and quilt, because they were made for Carter with love!

    I love the ocean themed growth chart on the wall! Can you tell me where you found it?

    I used Jamaican Sea for the ceiling and Silver Trophy for the walls from Home Depot… Came out pretty darn close if you ask me. I also got the matching chevron fabric for the curtains from Hope that helps – I had issues with the gray color myself.

    This nursery is creative and unique! The person whom planned this had a vision and executed a sophisticated, colorful and fun room. I am sure the appearance will only get more lively with the arrival of Carter!
