A modern explorer nursery for our second son, Scout. His name, to us, represents an "explorer", "outdoorsman", and "adventurer. So, we wanted a room that not only has those elements but also that was bright, with a mix of modern and sophisticated elements.
Our inspiration came from his name, a little explorer that loves adventure. But we also wanted something that was masculine and sophisticated.
Mixing modern and vintage elements with graphic patterns.

I love the geometric wallpaper accent wall and also the custom "Scout" sign inspired by the logo for the International Scout off-road vehicle.
Don't let budget get in your way. We found what we wanted and then if it was out of our price range, we researched comparable options that were more economical. Etsy is a great tool as well as antique stores. We also repurposed items to keep our budget down.
