Everett’s Teal and Orange Nursery


I knew I was having a boy but didn't want a masculine or cutesy nursery. I started with a color palette instead. It was a labor of love and the hardest part was picking out art for the room. I actually still have some white frames to put up on both sides of the window with some newborn portraits.

Design Inspiration

I created the nusery around blue (teal) and orange instead of a theme like safari or trucks. I spent a lot of time on Project Nursery and Pinterest.

Decorating Style

I have a hard time describing my style. It is mostly eclectic traditional I guess.

Love the hospital bracelet. I have my baby's bracelet framed, too, only I laid it flat and not in a loop so it's easier to read.

yeah, the bracelet definitely added something with sentimental value. My baby's bracelet is on a scrapbook page :)
