Cole’s Colorful DIY Nursery


We wanted a playful, colorful nursery in which we saved money and had fun by doing most of the projects ourselves. We didn't want a theme, but used a color scheme of various shades of blue, bright green, orange, and chocolate brown.

Design Inspiration

We got many of our ideas from Pinterest. We also wanted to incorporate some monsters and robots into the room.

Decorating Style

Contemporary. Bright. Playful.
