We wanted to design a nursery for our second son that was something that could grow with him. We also wanted a calm, neutral space with a burst of color, so we decided on a bold green accent. The artwork and accessories are simple and playful, perfect for a little boy!
My first inspiration was the quatrefoil, a design element which I studied during college in Architecture and Art History classes. We incorporated it into the room with the bedding and the wall decals. My other inspirations were projects from Project Nursery and items on Etsy.
Modern with clean lines, a burst of color and pattern.

My advice is to start designing early and to not settle. You can find almost anything online at every price point.
