Charlie’s Colorful Nursery


We set up our nursery not knowing if we were having a boy or a girl.  I wanted a space that was bright, colorful and fun. After months of researching online, I settled on a color scheme and began incorporating many diy projects into the room.

I finally got around to photographing the nursery when Charlie was about 16 months old. He is now 27 months and moving into his first big boy room.

Design Inspiration

Primary colors with a twist (aqua instead of blue).

Decorating Style

A 3 way tie between the chair, the quilt and the dresser. They make the room!


Incorporate items that aren't too "baby" so you can reuse them as your child grows or in other rooms in your house.
