I love Jack’s nursery because it’s so bright and happy.  I wanted his room to be different than his older brother’s which has more of a primary color theme: blues and reds and more traditional but still fun. My favorite part is that it feels modern but is still playful and full of color.  While I love modern stuff, it can lack personality and playfulness which I think are so important in a kid’s room.  So the pieces I included here seem to be both modern and playful, which created a colorful and happy place for Jack to hang out.  Of course I included some of my own artwork, as Jack was my original inspiration. However, I also love the U Are Funky piece by Melanie Mikecz which I hung above his crib to pull the palette of the whole room together.

My sister-in-law created a custom pillow from one of my pieces (Monster Mugs) that added a wonderful personal touch. She owns her own design studio that focuses on textile design. Check out her work here!

The Chevron Diaper caddies were custom made by Diva’s Intuition.  She now offers standard diaper caddies you can customize with a variety of fun and modern colors and prints!

Dwell Studio no longer makes the Transportation Crib Sheets, but they have a lot of other great bedding!

Here are some actual pictures of the room!  Since Jack is a second child, he inherited the nursery furniture from his older brother. It’s a little dated since it’s 4 years old, but we already had it and we made it work! I was angling towards a new and modern glider like this one from Land of Nod, but the one we already had is still comfortable and works just fine (i.e. I lost the battle with my husband). 🙂
