Color Inspiration: We wanted a nursery that was feminine without being pink. Once the soft grey blue paint was on the walls, pulling in vibrant orange as a complimentary color seemed natural. The touches of yellow keep it from being too matchy-matchy.

Color Inspiration: When I was looking for inspiration for the nursery, I came across Julianna's Room from Jennyology.com and was absolutely blown away by it.

I also wanted some sort of woodland theme; we live in Michigan and I hoped to reflect that somehow. Instead of using typical "foresty" colors, however, I just went for it. I was hooked as soon as I put the first stroke of the teal paint sample on the wall!
