This is the nursery that I created for my son Emerson. Only a few items were purchased brand new; most were hand made by family and friends or refinished by me.
My inspiration was my love for reading and my husband's love for computer programming and math. That was the inspiration behind the Letters & Numbers theme for my son's nursery.
Modern, not to matchy matchy, and eclectic.

Be creative. Don't be afraid of color. Don't feel like all of your oranges have to match perfectly or all of your reds have to be exactly the same. Pick and chose fun items from all over the place that way your room will achieve a more eclectic feel.
