When my family moved to a new home last summer, I took the opportunity to evolve what had been "Quinlan's Yellow Submarine Nursery" (also on Project Nursery) into a room that would grow with my son as far into childhood as possible. I incorporated many of the decorative items, most furniture, as well as the overall color scheme from his original nursery, but toned down the wall color to gray and added a black and white "base" to anchor the multi-colored accents.
The "rainbow" color scheme, inspired by the Yellow Submarine movie poster hanging over the fireplace, guided many of the decorative choices for this room.

The multi-colored dog Roman shades are my favorite item - because after nearly a year, my son still talks about them and notices something new about the pattern on a regular basis! They also do a great job of darkening his room for naptime, for which I am very thankful :).
Take design inspiration from the architectural style (and age) of your home, the place where you live, and your unique family history to create a very special room for your little one!
