I'm obsessed with Navy and Gray. I knew how I wanted to do the pop wall, so I did that first, and then everything else just fell into place. I didn't want the room to be too dark, so I made navy be a dominant color, but added the gray, light blue and lime green pops of color to brighten the room. I was trying to make the room "sweet" but still boy.
My ultimate goal was to keep the room fairly contemporary to still flow with the rest of our house.
My inspiration started with a blanket I bought when I first found out I was pregnant. It had navy, light blue, gray and green in it. I LOVED it.....but had a really hard time finding any bedding that I felt was contemporary enough - and not $500.
I spend a lot of time on decorating websites, Pinterest, and reading decor magazines, so I am always looking for interesting ideas, designs, and products.
I am definitely more contemporary than traditional - but contemporary on a budget.
The hardest item to find was the bedding. I ended up going back and forth on doing a bumper, but decided that I didn't want to risk it, so I ended up not doing a bumper.

The chair was a great find. I looked all over for a chair that wasn't going to cost me $1000, and this one is from Babies R Us. Klaussner Lacey Glider.

Other bookshelf is from the container store.
My favorite item in the room is the rug. I looked for a LONG time to find a rug that I liked that wasn't too beige since all of my contrast is white.
