When I started thinking about a nursery I knew I wanted it to be bold. No pastels, no theme, no Winnie the Pooh (as much as I love The House on Pooh Corner.) My husband and I love to travel. Whether it is a quick weekend getaway or a three-week European adventure. We love to experience other cultures and learn about the world first hand. I came across the world map mural on Amazon one random day and immediately fell in love. It's bold, it's big and it can be used to teach our child about the world. Everything else in the room fell into place. Since the map had so much color we chose to use white and gray for the crib, dresser and chair. On our trip to IKEA I surprised myself in picking out the bight green shelving unit in the closet.
