Sunshine and Aqua Nursery


Cute, little nursery for a cute, little boy. 

Design Inspiration

I was definitely inspired by the color scheme--love the pop of blue against a sunny, yellow backdrop.

Decorating Style

I like the modern, clean look with a touch of warmth. I believe that personalizing is the key to creating an intimate space and keeping it simple is the key to creating a modern, visually-pleasing look.

Favorite Items

I love the shadowbox frame with my baby's take-home outfit from the hospital. Reminds me every day of how tiny he used to be!


There are some things money can buy, others you just gotta do yourself. Add personal touches to an otherwise streamlined look and I promise you'll love the results =]

I love your bedding and that cool mobile. But my favorite's gotta be that onesie clipped on the frame. Not only is it cute, but it's got a real sentimental value.
