Orange, Gray and Turquoise Wanderlust Nursery


We wanted a colorful place that portrayed our love of travel that we hope to pass on to our son.

Design Inspiration

We wanted something modern and colorful but still made the room feel inviting and somewhere we could spend hours. We found a lot of ideas on Pinterest and Etsy and eventually weeded out enough to make it feel just right for us!

Decorating Style

Modern, Colorful and a little bit weird (We live in Austin after all)

Favorite Items

The globe mobile.  We originally bought it to go over the crib, but it was way more massive than we expected so we put it over in the corner so when we are rocking the baby to sleep or feeding he can enjoy them.   The ceiling fan in the room makes them move all day long.


We started with the crib and made that the focal point of how we wanted to do the rest of the room.    It all sort of falls into place once you figure out the first big thing!

Truly a beautiful nursery! I love how the travel elements come together in a bright and cheerful way. What size did you choose for the canvas print above the crib? Thank you!
