A fairly simple nursery using some of my favorite colors.
I love looking at decorating blogs, magazines, and watching decorating shows. So, when we found out we were expecting, I slowly began to add nursery decorating blogs to my list. I fell in love with a nursery I found on this website as well as several others found on websites such as www.nurserynotations.com, spearmintbaby.com, ohdeedoh.com, and a few others.
I like traditional with a slight modern flair and fun pops of color.

Look at a lot of different things, make note of why you like them, and then just start working on the project you have in your head. It will all come together with your own style and personality.
