For the design of this nursery, I envisioned a room that was soothing and calm, though wanted to stay away from the traditional colors typically seen in a boy's nursery. This project was designed to be similar, yet with distinct design elements, complementing my older son's nursery.
My design inspiration for this patterned nursery came from the colors in the crib blanket - gray, red, and a soft muted blue. Once the color scheme was established, I found inspiration from fabric swatches used by several Etsy designers, and pulled other design ideas from Pinterest and the Project Nursery gallery.
My decorating style is modern contemporary, tying together unique elements with a common thread that unifies the room. I also have a "look for less" attitude, and try to achieve my targeted style on a reasonable budget.

There are so many items in this nursery that I love! The colors and patterns from the various fabrics served as an inspiration, and tied the entire room together. Each of the DIY wall art creations including the wall letters, Snoopy print, love stamp print, and the alphabet highlight the color scheme of the room, and I had the most fun making these projects for my son. I also love how the shadow box turned out, with birth announcement, ultrasound, his tiny hospital bracelet, and some of my favorite pictures from his birthday!
