Roman's nursery is eclectic, cozy and colorful with its neutral walls and bright pops of color throughout.
As an interior designer, I always start my brainstorming sessions with an inspiration board and build off of that. I knew I didn't want to get trapped into one theme, so I decided to base the style off of color rather than a theme. The first item we bought for the nursery was the Jenny Lind turquoise crib, which became the focal point of the room. We kept the walls a neutral color and added hints of turquoise, red & yellow through decor.
I always have trouble describing my style; it doesn't seem to fit into one particular category. My house is an eclectic mix of homemade, flea-market style with a hint of shabby chic. I like everything to be light and airy with bright splashes of color. Roman's nursery is done in the same style as the rest of our home, but with a bolder color palette.

The turquoise crib! It is a piece loved by everyone who comes to visit. It sets the stage for the whole room. I also love the shabby chic faux taxidermy deer head with the colorful DIY tassels and the whimsical abstract geometric art I created for the space.
Find one or two "wow" pieces and then build the nursery off of that. It is okay to not have a main theme - let the color(s) you choose be the theme. If you are good at a particular craft, then incorporate that into the nursery's decor. Not only will you love creating it, but it will make the room feel so much more special when you add these personal touches!
