A Colorful Nursery with a Hint of the Tropics


This is a colorful nursery for my second baby due January 17, 2016 (and currently still cooking!).  Because my son is just two, we weren't ready to give up all of his nursery furniture just yet.  We kept things simple in this fresh space for the much anticipated addition to our family!

Design Inspiration

I love coastal casual décor and color. I combine the two here into a fun colorful nursery that's a bit quirky and very fresh! Visit my blog for more of my designs: Embrace My Space

Decorating Style

The more color the better!

Favorite Items

My favorite element in the space is the twin sleeper sofa!  We decided to use this rather than a rocker or glider because we thought it would grow with our family.  Plus, it will give the parent on over night duty a place to rest near the baby.
