When we found out that we were having a boy, I envisioned a bright, bold, and colorful nursery where he would feel most comfortable, and love playing, reading, rocking, and falling asleep in his own special place.
We are renting our home, and Wyatt's nursery was the only bedroom that was painted when we moved in. We thought the aqua walls would be perfect for a nursery, no matter whether we were having a boy or a girl. Once we found out we were having a baby boy, I found inspiration in the Project Nursery gallery, on Pinterest, and from fabric swatches used by several Etsy artists. Airplanes are scattered throughout the nursery, as my husband is a pilot!
My decorating style is modern contemporary, tying together unique elements with a common thread that unifies the room. I also have a "look for less" attitude, and try to achieve my targeted style on a reasonable budget.

There are so many items in this nursery that I love! The crib is one of my favorites. BabyMod makes a solid pinewood crib that's eco-friendly, and budget conscious, purchased from Walmart. The two-toned design tied in the other white and amber wooden furniture that were used in the nursery. I also loved creating and displaying the DIY projects, including the wall letters, the framed artwork with Wyatt's initials, and the felt airplane banner. The glider is also a favorite for its modern design and comfort.
Create a nursery that's pleasing to you and your baby. You will be spending a lot of time in the nursery, and will continue to enjoy all of the design elements that make the room unique and special.
