I wanted Rylynn's nursery to be totally unique. I'm not so into "themes" and I really loved putting the room together piece by piece. I wanted it to be bright and colorful and a room that I would enjoy spending time in. My husband came up with the design for the crib and built it, and my family came down for a weekend and painted the room and furniture in a single day. I love that my family had a hand in creating my dream nursery, it makes it that much more special for my daughter. I really love how it turned out and can't wait for my baby girl to get here so we can hang out in here together!
My husband built the crib-I wanted it to be the focus of the room. Once he finished it, I tried to find colors and patterns that would compliment his beautiful handiwork.
I'm pretty eclectic. I end up putting DIY pieces next to store bought and end up with sort of a modern DIY chic thing.

Don't feel like you have to go with a theme! Just pick pieces that make you happy and you will create a space that does just that.

Such a happy and colorful room. And that's a very uniquely designed crib you have there.
