Miles’ Colorful Nursery


As soon as I started looking at nurseries, I knew I wanted to paint the room a teal, aqua or sea form color, so I started looking for crib sheets that had those colors.  Once I found the perfect set, everything else just fell into place.

Design Inspiration

I fell in love with the Zutano Elephant bedding and continue to utilize the color scheme and safari theme through out the room.  I got a lot of inspiration from project nursery, pinterest, , esty, baby lifestyles and any website that had the color combo.

Decorating Style

Colorful, modern yet still incorporated with some traditional elements and unique

Favorite Items

The tree stencil and birds


Find your inspiration through an item whether it be the crib bedding, a picture, rug, blanket, etc.  Don't be afraid of color.  Even if you go neutral on the walls, you can add a splash of color through accents such as pillows and curtains.  Project Nursery was very helpful.
