Roman’s Nursery


A fun and bright Nursery for our first little man!

Design Inspiration

I wanted our baby's room to be colorful and fun. I love Ethan Adler's giraffe lamp and zebra rug but am not banking the bucks so I  tried to  use similar items ( owl Lamp) and patterns ( Zebra fabric ) in our little man's nursery.

Decorating Style

I love bright patterns and pop art.

If you want something and are on a fixed budget be a craigslist and ebay stalker. I found the Dwell Studio by Target crib set (zoo safari)  that had 30 pieces including 8 sheets and even a matching night light for about $35.00 on ebay.

Oh, there goes that "Keep Calm and Carry On" sign. I seem to be seeing it in a lot of nurseries lately. I guess it's really appropriate, huh, what with sleepless nights and diaper changing. Very adorable room, by the way. You did a neat job putting everything together, especially the animal details.

Where on ebay did you get the decal? I love the rocking chair fabric did you purchase the fabric and cover it yourself?

The gray and orangey tree and giraffe wall decal looks really cute. I like that it doesn't really shout for attention and is rather discreet.  Overall, it does look to be a very fun room, with lots of animal loving!
